This SINGER sewing machine model features less built-in stitches than the previous model we reviewed. It features 32 built-in stitches, including 6 basic ones, 18 decorative ones and 7 stretch stitches. The machine is sturdy and durable thanks to a high quality metal frame and a stainless steel bed plate. Its powerful motor can complete 1100 stitches-per-minute. This machine also features the automatic needle threader and a top drop-in bobbin with a clear view cover. It is affordable yet includes great accessories, such as a zipper foot, button sewing foot, button hole foot, a quilting guide, a soft-sided dust cover and many more. One of the great things about this model is that you can use it with the SINGER sewing assistant app through which you can learn new techniques, read frequently asked questions and watch tutorials.
