However, this free arm sewing machine still offers lots of value to the user. It is basic and easy to use, all you have to do is select one stitch and start sewing. The features of this machine include easy stitch selection, automatic bobbin winding system and easy threading. The removable storage compartment makes the machine quite convenient and since it is lightweight it can be carried to classes and other locations. Another reason why this sewing machine model is great for beginners is because the needle bar automatically disengages when winging the bobbin, which makes the machine safe.
