This system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever type of fabric you use. Feel free to override to preset tension for special project settings. Automatic Presser Foot Pressure. The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is automatic. Sew from the lightest tricots to the heaviest denim without making pressure adjustments. The rigid interior support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing. The extra high presser foot lifter offers more clearance when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot. This feed dog system ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear, providing more accurate feeding. Change from one presser foot to another effortlessly. No need for screwdrivers to change the snap-on presser feet--they just snap on. Needle positions can be changed for individual projects including inserting zippers, cording and topstitching. The free arm provides easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas. The on-board storage provides easy access to the included accessories. The needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin making bobbin winding safer. Portable and Cabinet Mountable. The machine has a built-in carry handle making it easy to transport the machine. The machine can also be mounted into a cabinet in a few easy steps.
