  • A simple, one-step process that creates balanced buttonholes.

  • Bonus Quilting Accessories 
  • 1/4" Foot, Even Feed / Walking Foot, Satin Stitch Foot, Darning & Embroidery Foot 
  • 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. 
  • Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter 
  • Advantageous when placing multiple layers or bulky fabric under the presser foot. 
  • 13 Needle Positions 
  • Needle position can be changed for individual projects like inserting zippers, cords and topstitching. 
  • 7mm Stitch Width 
  • Select stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm creating attractive satin and decorative stitches.

Singer Patchwork Great Machine

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Self Threading, Walking Foot Included As Well As Extra Long Arm
Cons:
Would Love More Space Under The Arm For A Quilt To Be Rolled Up

I had been eyeing the quilting machine but thought it to be limited. So I decided to buy the Singer Fashion Mate or Stylist. I literally stumbled on to the Patchwork at a Joann's fabrics. They didn't even have the machine listed on the Singer website yet. I just found it up. I love it. Even better than my Kenmore. It runs smoothly. No jams so far and just very very easy. The walking foot that it came with along with the extra long arm with a ruler printed on the side is FANTASTIC!! Whether you're a beginner or expert I don't think you can beat the quality for the price of this machine ($194-$229)

Pros:
Good Value, Easy To Use, Does Free Motion Sewing
Cons:
Light Is On The Left Of Needle And Not Where It Is Needed To See While Sewing.

This machine does a great job sewing and the free motion sewing for quilting works very well. I had purchased a Singer machine and returned it to get this one. I am disappointed in the light. It is more to the left and makes it hard to see your seam side to sew. You have to have another light to see properly.

Pros:
Great Features, Easy To Use
Cons:
Poor Quality, Too Much Oil For Any Machine

Initially, I loved this machine. It's quiet, has an even quilting stitch, and a long arm - ideal for quilting. Then, it leaked black oil all over my quilt, ruining two white pinwheel blocks. Definitely no need for so much oil on a sewing machine.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons:
Ridiculous Oil Leaking. This Machine Has Oil On Every Available Surface - Even The Presser Foot!

I love this machine - can use it blindfolded. Before I purchased it, I saw the review about the oil leaking. I checked before using and mopped up a bit. But as I used the machine longer, more and more oil leaked out - all over white linen! I was able to soak it out however I am now on my 3rd garment, still leaks oils even with me wiping the shank down frequently. Such a hassle for a great little machine.
