  • 340 Built-In Stitches

  • A simple, one-step simple process that creates balanced buttonholes.
  • 2 Built-In Alphabets
  • Personalize projects by adding a monogram, name or phrase with the built-in block or script style numbers and alphabets, both available in upper and lower case, stitched at 5mm stitch width.
  • Removable Stitch Chart
  • A handy, removable stitch chart easily attaches to the handle of the machine to provide visual references for each stitch.
  • Automatic Electronic Thread Cutter
  • Press the thread cutter button and the machine automatically trims the top and bobbin threads when you are done sewing.
  • Automatic Needle Threader
  • Sewing’s biggest timesaver! This feature makes threading the eye of the needle quick and easy.
  • Automatic Stitch Length & Width
  • Optimal settings for stitch length and width are automatically set, but can be overridden for more personalized sewing.
  • 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.
  • Top Drop-In Bobbin System
  • The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert the bobbin. Simply follow the illustrations pictured on the machine. The thread blade trims the excess bobbin thread. The clear cover makes it easy to monitor the bobbin thread supply.
  • Mirror Imaging and Elongation Functions
  • With just a touch of a button selected stitches can be mirrored imaged, adding even more stitch variety. Press the Elongation button and selected stitches can be made up to 5 times longer.
  • Large Back-Lit LCD Screen
  • Provides clear and easy viewing of stitch functions including stitch length, stitch width, tension settings, recommended presser foot, needle up/down position and more!
  • Electronic Auto Pilot
  • 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 Lever to the desired speed.
  • Four Memory Modules
  • Each model holds up to 20 entries. Place names, simple phrases and decorative stitch sequences in each of these four modules, then retrieve them anytime, even if the machine has been turned off.
  • Editing Capabilities
  • It’s easy to change or replace your selections within the Modules.
  • Pattern Override Memory
  • Select a pattern, override the width and/or length, place the stitch in a Memory Module, and the machine will remember those changes for future use.
  • Drop Feed
  • A conveniently located lever lowers the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms and button sewing.
  • 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 presser foot pressure 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.
  • Automatic Single Stitch Function
  • On select stitches, the Auto Lock button sews a single unit of the stitch and three tiny tacking stitches, allowing for complete creativity.
  • Electronic Twin Needle Control
  • Select stitches automatically adjust for twin needle sewing with just the touch of a button.
  • 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.
  • Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
  • Advantageous when placing multiple layers or bulky fabric under the presser foot.
  • Up to 7mm Stitch Width
  • Select stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm creating attractive satin and decorative stitches.
  • Free Arm
  • Provides professional results and easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas.
  • Automatic Reverse
  • Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew in re-verse and reinforce the stitch.
  • Sewing Speed
  • With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.

  • The included optional extension table provides a larger working area, an essential for quilting, home decor sewing or when working with a larger project.

  • Easily change most presser feet without use of a screwdriver.

I bought this machine from HSN last year but had not taken it out the box until this week. Needle threader is difficult compared to my other machine. My biggest issue is the bobbin jamming up. I tried everything over and over until I just put it back in the box. I did everything that was suggested to try on the web site. Didn't get to sew anything because of the jamming up. I was using the needle and bobbin that came with the machine and a quality thread. The needle wouildn't even pick up the bobbin thread, and I somehow manually got the thread up. Will not purchase anymore Singer products. This used to be the only brand I would use. Can't send it back because of the time expiration, so I will have to pay to have it fixed by a repair shop locally.

good for straight stitch, but the book is incomplete on instruction on how to do monogram and other fancy stitches. I had less than 1 month and had to get it repaired.

Cons:
Poor Quality, Feature Do Not Work, Aggravating

I was very excited to use all the features of this machine. I had some reservation about buying this product as I had issues with a past Singer product.

I thought Singer was a brand that has been selling sewing machines forever and this machine would surely be great.

I was very Dissappointed as with my very first project (making a simple skirt), my machine bobbin jammed and would not sew. I did my trouble shooting and got the machine going, but it would always jam.

I was unable to return this machine due to my work schedule and life in general, it had been over 90 days since my purchase.

I took this machine to a Singer approved repair shop and received it back with all the stitches in working order.

After getting it home I am a little more satisfied, however, some of the functions still do not work. I will probably never buy another Singer product and am very sad that the money I spent is on a product I am not crazy about.

Poor Quality

I purchased this thing from HSN in Aug. 2012. I guess the machince sews OK. The machine locks up when bobbin gets low. I think maybe a metal bobbin might correct the problem. I have been unable to find a metal one. The plate is difficult to get off to clean feeders Must have a special screw driver which does not come with the machine. I had a problem with it locking up. I looked at the manual and did what it said. Did not help. The book said to call a 600 number for help. Forget this!!! I called one day at 12:00 noon and I was told by a recording that I was the 4th caller in line. Soi I patiencely waited for 30 mintes, 1 hour, 1 1/2 hours, 2 hours, 2 1/2 hours. Finally the message siad I was the next caller in line. After a while I hear a rign and thought good they finally got to me. To my suprise there was another recording that said "sue to system problem we cannot take your call, call back later". I immediately called back and I received another recorded message that I was the 9th caller in line. So were there system problems, I think not. I guess the 9th caller waited at least 5 hours based on my lenght of time since I was 4th when I called originally. I wondered if they got the same message. That makes me not want to ever deal sith the Singer Company again. If it was not to late to ship this back to HSN I would certainly do it. I will go to a Brother or some other brand due to the "Singer no service!!I wonder if this will make it to the on line reviews.
