Snap-On Presser Feet

Change from one presser foot to another effortlessly with snap-on feet. No need for screwdrivers to change feet.

On-Board Storage

Storage of accessories in the Removable Extension Table means accessories are always handy.

Audible Tone

An audible tone confirms pattern and function selection.

Auto Tie-Off Function for Straight Stitch

Tie-off straight stitches with just a push of a button. Reinforcing the beginning and end of the seam prevents unraveling.

Tacking Stitch with Auto Tie-Off Function for Decorative Stitches

Tie-off decorative stitches, at the beginning and end of the sequence, with just a push of a button.

Automatic Reverse

Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew stitches in reverse.

6mm Stitch Width

Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 6mm. When sewing decorative stitches or satin stitches, the wide stitches are bolder and more pronounced.

Six-Second Threading

Thread the machine in six seconds. Just follow the arrows on the machine, and you are threaded in a snap.

Sewing Speed

With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.

Automatic Presser Foot Pressure

The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is automatic. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making presser foot adjustments.

Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch

Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer because the needle won’t move up and down.

Bobbin Winder Stop

Bobbin will automatically stop turning when the bobbin is completely filled. Never worry about overfilling a bobbin again.

Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter

There are two heights to the presser foot lifter. The second height offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot.

Six-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 makes for much more accurate feeding.

Heavy Duty Metal Frame

The rigid internal skeleton support holds all the mechanisms in alignment for overall durability and skip-free sewing.

Built-In Stretch Stitches

These are specially designed stitches that add strength and flexibility to seams. Ideal for sewing on knits and other stretch fabrics.

Adjustable Stitch Length and Width

Optimal settings for length and width are automatically selected when choosing a stitch. They can be overridden to personalize length and width choice.

Center Zigzag Taper

When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, not the left or right. This provides a more attractive look when tapering into or out of a point.

Twin Needle Capability

When using a twin needle (optional), selected stitches can be adjusted for twin needle sewing by reducing the stitch width. Twin needle stitching creates two parallel rows, adding a decorative touch.

13 Needle Positions

Needle position can be changed for individual projects, such as inserting zippers or cording and topstitching.

Optimum Power Control

A control system that senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric thickness. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple fabric layers including denim.

Consumer’s Choice

More people own SINGER machines than all other brands combined.
