Fully computerised, yet small enough and light enough to carry to classes.. It's the perfect portable machines. The maximum speed controller allows for precision sewing whilst the auto needle threader and the auto 1-step buttonhole make sewing simple. There a needle up/down facility.. Great for pivoting on corners and an auto-lock stitch for a perfect end to stitching. It also has a start/stop button which means the machine can be used without the foot control.
