Seam Guide

Quilting is not a very easy job to do, and it can prove frustrating if you get it wrong one too many times. To prevent this scenario, this machine has a feature that makes it possible for the user to align the seam lines so that the seams come out in a uniform, well-aligned manner.

Adjustable Zipper Foot

Fixing zippers no longer have to be stressful, frustrating task. The feature allows the user to adjust the machine accordingly so that they can fix accessories on just about any machine. The foot pedal is conveniently located underneath the machine so that it does not come in the way of your work.

Foot Control

The speed of the machine is controlled through the foot pedal. You can speed up or slow down your work depending on the pace you are comfortable working at, without much involvement of the hands. The positioning is such that you avoid injury your feet while at work.

Metal Bobbins

The machine is unique in itself in that it comes with 5 bobbins, a feature that ensures that you have a constant flow of thread throughout your sewing exercise. The bobbins are well fixed in place, and you do not have to worry about the needle coming off in the middle of your tasks.

Automatic Thread Cutter

This is a time-saving feature that makes it easy for you to cut off unneeded thread pretty fast. However, please note that the thread cut is quite short, so allow it some wiggle room if you need a longer thread. Keep a pair of tweezers nearby just in case you will need to do it manually.
