7mm Stitch Width
Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm creating attractive satin and decorative stitches.
Programmable Needle Up/Down
The needle can be programmed to stop in the highest position when your foot is lifted from the controller, making it easier to remove fabric from the machine or program the needle to stop in the down position, which is ideal for pivoting, appliquéing or quilting.

With just a touch of a button select stitches can be mirror imaged, adding even more stitch variety. Select the elongation button and a variety of stitches can be made two to five times longer.
This system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever type of fabric is being sewn. The tension can be adjusted using the tension adjustment buttons, if desired.
Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
The presser foot lifter has two heights. The second offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot.
The feed dogs move in a box motion ensuring perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process.
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 limiting control to the desired speed.
