  • With this special top drop-on bobbin, there’s no longer any need to raise the bobbin thread before sewing. Just drop and sew!
  • Quick View Stitch Setting
  • When either the length or width of a stitch is changed, the corresponding LED light turns yellow for notification of the change.
  • Simple Stitch Adjustment
  • Automatic optimal settings for stitch length and width can be overridden to personalize projects.
  • Presser Foot Sensor
  • Ensures the presser foot is in the proper position for an easy start. The machine will not begin to sew if presser foot is raised, reducing the chance of thread bunching.
  • Extra-Large Sewing Space
  • The arm of the machine measures 14.7” providing a more spacious work area—an essential for quilting, home décor sewing or when working with other large projects.
  • Heavy-Duty Metal Frame
  • The internal rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing and overall durability.
  • 3 StayBright™ LED Lights
  • Three lamps illuminate the sewing surface for optimal viewing. The long-lasting bulbs (100,000 hours) stay cool regardless of how long the machine is being operated.
  • Drop Feed
  • A conveniently located lever lowers the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms and button sewing.
  • 2 Fully Automatic 1-Step Buttonholes
  • Buttonhole sewing is a one-step simple process, providing reliable results every time. Each side is sewn in the same direction creating beautifully balanced buttonholes.
  • Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
  • Offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers or bulky fabric under the presser foot
  • Free Arm
  • Provides easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas
  • Center Zigzag Taper
  • When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center not the left or right providing a more attractive look when tapering into or out from a point.
  • 7mm Stitch Width
  • Many stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm for satin and decorative stitches.
  • Automatic Tension
  • This system ensures stable stitch quality regardless of the type of fabric.
  • Automatic Reverse
  • Push the conveniently located automatic reverse button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
  • Sewing Speed
  • With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
  • 13 Needle Positions
  • Needle position can be changed for individual projects like inserting zippers, cording and topstitching.
  • 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 presser foot pressure adjustments.
  • 7-Segment Feeding System
  • This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This provides for much more accurate feeding of the fabric.
  • Box Feed
  • This is a function that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.
  • Thread Cutter
  • Located on the machine for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step of cutting thread with scissors
  • 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.
  • DC Motor
  • Provides instant start up and stop with no coasting, for accurate and precise stitch placement.
  • Snap-On Presser Feet
  • Easily change snap-on presser feet without use of a screwdriver.
  • Included Accessories

Disappointed

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use
Cons:
No Easy Access To Fix Minor Problem.

This machine was a gift from my children for Christmas, and I love the look. For the first week, it ran beautifully and I was just thrilled! Today, it broke; from reading another review, I suspect the problem may be a thread caught in the upper threading device, which is not easily reached. I am disappointed that Singer's quality is not up to par. I have a heavy duty Singer that runs great, and my mother's Singer from the early 1960's that still works well.

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use
Cons:
Awish You Could Leave Needle In Down Position.

I am Retired and disabled. I sew on this machine a lot! a few days ago it broke down. Because it is an electronic machine I thought it was just a glitch. After a thorough examination I found a broken thread guide under the cover on the top of the machine.The closest place to have it fixed in about 50 min. away. I do not drive so drop off- pick up will cost me about 40.00 that I do not have.

Pros:
Good Value, Light Weight, Great Features, Looks Good
Cons:
Poor Quality, Somewhat Difficult With Regards To The Stitch Patterns

Sews good but hard to adjust the different stitches. Had to have warranty work done. the shaft that holds the presser foot broke. Never had that happen before and I have had 6 Singers. It's good looking and light weight in my sewing room.
