Additional Features and Benefits
Electronic Sewing Machine with Push-Button Stitch SelectionWith just a simple push of a button you have selected the stitch and the optimum settings for length, width, balance, pressure and tension.
Automatic ReversePush the conveniently located automatic reverse button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
7mm Stitch WidthMost 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.
Twin Needle SewingBy using a twin needle and manually reducing the stitch width, two parallel rows can be sewn to add a decorative touch. Create pintucks and more with twin needle sewing.
Sewing SpeedWith a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
Automatic TensionThis system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever type of fabric is being used.
Five Snap-on Presser FeetExpands your creative sewing possibilities.
Automatic Bobbin Winding ClutchNeedle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer.
6-Segment Feeding SystemThis 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.
Box FeedThis 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.
Thread CutterLocated for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step of cutting thread with scissors.
Free ArmProvides professional results and easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas.
Portable and Cabinet MountableMachine has a built-in carry handle, making it easy to transport the machine. Machine can be mounted into a cabinet.
Heavy-Duty Metal FrameThis rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.
On-Board StorageStorage of accessories in the closed-lid conversion-table-accessory storage area means accessories are always handy.
Electronic Stitch FormationAll stepper motors are electronically controlled. Digital electronic control of the stepper motors that control the pattern formation allows for perfectly formed patterns every time.
Optimum Power ControlA 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.
30 Built-In Stitches
Included stitch guide is a handy reference that tells you when to use every stitch and setting.

After doing a lot of research, I chose THIS sewing machine for some pretty specific reasons:
1. It's pretty heavy, weighing in at 27 pounds. Why is this a benefit? It's sturdy, very sturdy, with a metal frame inside. Everything I've read leads me to believe that the lighter plastic machines simply don't last, while the old-school metal monstrosities keep working forever. I feel that this one has the best of both worlds. It looks sleek and classy, but can still sew through multiple layers of denim or thick fleece with no trouble.
2. The controls are all analog, with no digital programming to malfunction. You just push the buttons to select your stitch and go, and there are sliding levers for stitch width.
I've sewn several different kinds of fabrics both light and heavy and it handles them all great!
Here are the main problems with this machine:
-The stitch length nob slides from 1 to 7, with 1 hammering out stitches less than half a mm and 7 making about 3.5mm stitches. Two problems here: first, this arbitrary numbering system does not correlate with either of the commonly used stitch length systems that you'll run across in patterns (SPI or stitches per inch, and millimeters), so you have to do a little trial and error to figure out where you need to set your slider nob. Second, the longest stitch, at 7, is still not as long as you need for a basting or gathering stitch on sturdier.
