Convenience at your fingertips
This unit is designed with convenience in mind. For starters, it has a conveniently placed stitch panel on the front of the machine that shows you all the stitches while also acting as a reference point as you select the stitch you want.
It also has measurement markings on the needle plate that are very convenient when measuring things like seam allowances or when aligning fabrics to create straight stitches.
An automatic needle threader is featured in this unit, making it possible to insert the thread into the needle eye without straining your eyes.
Lastly, it comes with a set of snap-on presser feet that make it very easy to switch from one to the other as you create different types of stitches.
Well-designed work area
Even though this unit is small in size, it does have a decently sized work area that features a storage compartment for keeping the accessories that come along with it. These include the bobbins, needle sets, screwdriver, and several feet, among many others.
This storage tray is removable and exposes the machine’s free arm, which enables you to work on pant hems, collars, and cuffs.
