  • Programmable Needle Up/Down 
  • The needle can be programmed to stop in the highest up position, making it easier to remove fabric from the machine. The needle can also be programmed to stop in the down position which is ideal for pivoting, appliquéing and quilting. 
  • Automatic Stitch Length & Width 
  • Optimal settings for stitch length and width are automatically set, but can be overridden for more personalized sewing. 
  • Extension Table Included 
  • The included optional extension table provides a larger working area, an essential for quilting, home decor sewing or when working with a larger project. 
  • Canvas Cover with Extension Table Pocket 
  • Keep your sewing machine and extension table dust-free.
  • 11 Presser Feet including 
  • 4 Bonus Quilting Feet Expands your creative sewing and quilting possibilities. 
  • Top Drop-In Bobbin System with Clear View Cover
  • The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert the bobbin. Simply follow the illustrations pictured on the machine. The clear cover makes it easy to monitor the bobbin thread supply. 
  • Start / Stop Button 
  • Unplug the foot control, press the Start button and the machine sews. You are still in complete control over the speed - just slide the Speed Control Lever to the desired speed. 
  • Heavy Duty Metal Frame 
  • The internal rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing and overall durability. 
  • Horizontal Threading 
  • Quality stitches begin with proper thread delivery. Placing the thread spool in the horizontal position allows for the thread to feed more evenly, reducing poor stitch formation and thread breakage. 
  • Center Zigzag Taper 
  • When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, not the left or right. This feature is especially valuable when appliquéing, because it provides a more attractive look when tapering into or out from a point. 
  • Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control 
  • The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is adjusted automatically. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making adjustments.
  • Automatic Tension 
  • This system ensures stable stitch quality regardless of fabric type.
  • Automatic Locking Stitch Function
  • Tie-off decorative and utility stitches with just a push of the Auto Lock button. Three tiny tacking stitches reinforce patterns and stitches to prevent unraveling.

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, It Has A 1/4 Foot And Walking Foot
Cons:
I Think The Last Threading Port Needs Improvement

There are many wonderful features to this Singer Patchwork sewing machine. My favorites are the many stitches, automatic threader, and that it comes with a 1/4 foot and a walking foot that are not available. While I think the machine is 5 stars, I'm not that fond of the last thread port before the needle, having to turn the thread to a 45d. angle. I think the needle threader should return up under the machine or, that this last thread port would be on the right side of the threading bar. After using the machine steady for a week I am overall very happy with it. While it is not big enough to quilt my full size quilt, it is great for piecing and the price was very reasonable.

Quilting with the patchwork

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

While the machine is great to quilt with, was disappointed the walking foot that came with the machine did not have the guide with it like the modern quilter machine did ( a friend got the 8500 modern quilter with the bonus feet like the patchwork) now having trouble getting the guide without having to pay for a new walking foot.

Brand, Features, Price--can't beat

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Sale Price Was Great

This purchase was a replacement for a Kenmore machine (which was about 20 yrs old & probably made by Singer for Sears). The features are very similar--easy bobbin, threading needle, etc. But the Patchwork model is electronic with automatic settings (though you can change these if necessary). I'm looking forward to many years with this machine & all it has to offer. My mother bought a competitor brand a few years ago (because of the price) & regrets the purchase--SINGER is the best--as far as we are concerned. I'm an intermediate sewer, doing repairs, crafts, etc. This machine is light weight, yet sturdy to do the jobs I require of it. Excited about my future projects!

Pros:
Great Features, Easy To Use

The Patchwork is a good sewing machine. However if you like to quilt. It is not good for making quilts. There is not enough lighting for around the needle area. The space between the needle and the controls needs to be longer.
