Additional Features & Benefits
Built-In Stretch Stitches
Specially designed stitches that add strength and flexibility to seams, especially useful when sewing on knitwear and superstretch fabrics.
Push the conveniently located automatic reverse button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
7mm Stitch Width
Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm. When sewing decorative stitches or satin stitches, the wide stitches are bolder and more pronounced.
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 from a point.
One-Step Automatic Precisely Balanced Built-In Buttonholes
Buttonhole sewing is a simple one-step process, providing reliable results. Each side of the buttonhole is sewn in the same direction, creating beautifully balanced buttonholes.
6-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.
13 Needle Positions
Needle position can be changed for individual projects, such as inserting zippers or cording and topstitching.
Needle Stops in Up Position
Needle always stops in the highest up position when your foot is lifted from the controller. When removing the fabric from the machine, it is easier if the needle is raised to highest position.
With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
Thread a machine in six seconds¬--no tedious directions. Just follow the arrows on the machine, and you are threaded in a snap.
An audible tone confirms pattern and function selection.
Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control
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.
Top Loading Jam-Proof Bobbin System with Clear Cover
This mechanism incorporates a magnet-type vertical axis rotating hook that ensures smooth, quiet, thread jam-resistant sewing. The bobbin case floats above the hook, precluding thread jams. The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert the bobbin. The clear cover makes it easy to monitor the bobbin thread supply.
Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer.
Storage of accessories in the closed-lid conversion-table-accessory storage area means accessories are always handy.
Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
There are 2 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.
Optimum Power Control
A control system senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric conditions. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple (six to eight) layers of fabric.
Electronic Stitch Formation
All stepper motors are electronically controlled. Digital electronic control of the stepper motors that control the pattern formation allows for perfectly formed patterns every time.
This is a feed dog motion 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.
The internal skeleton of the sewing machine. This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.
The needle bar is geared straight from the motor, rather than from a drive bar across the machine. This make the machine more powerful and durable.
Provides instant start up and stop with no casting, for accurate and precise stitch placement.
Electronic Foot Controller
Guarantees consistent sewing speed with no jump starts.
Provides professional results and easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas.
Located for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step of cutting thread with scissors.

One of the drawbacks of the machine is that the knitting must always have quite a bit of downward tension. Once the piece is long enough to reach the floor, it has to be rolled up and secured or the stitches will--you guessed it--jump off the needles. The instruction book says that the knitting can be rolled up and secured with the clothespins. This doesn't work. Any piece long enough to be rolled up is pretty much too heavy for the clothespins. The clothespins are just about up to the job of holding on to the elastic thread, and even then they usually fall off. I use cotton yarn and baste the work in place.
