Because of its ease, users find it convenient to change color threads to another. Take note to always use the slow setting when winding bobbins. See More
The machine includes 55 alphanumeric stitches (letters A-Z, numbers 0-9, symbols such as & and ? and umlauted letters like Ä, Ö and Ü) for basic monogramming on clothes. Monogramming is the art of stitching letters and numbers in fabrics, mostly on linens, and towels. See More

This machine was made with beginners in mind. Since it is computerized, it tells you the length and width of a stitch after you choose one and it corrects you if you use the wrong presser foot. The machine practically does everything for you. It threads your needle, guides you how to thread your bobbin, and buttons your clothes. See More
Most sewists look for this particular feature in machines. A needle down is helpful in holding your stitching position when turning a corner or stitching a curve. Pressing the needle up/down button is more precise and helpful when you've already finished stitching and would not want to manually turn the hand wheel/step on the presser foot to lift the needle.

A presser foot is a small attachment on your machine, it is what holds your fabric down like two fingers at either side of the needle. It guides the fabric smoothly depending on which stitch style you choose. The package includes 10 free presser feet: zigzag/all purpose, buttonhole, zipper, rolled hem, blind hem, darning and embroidery, overcast, straight stitch, gathering, and satin stitch/straight stitch. There is no need to buy extra presser foot since the free ones basically cover all the basic-advanced sewing stitches. See More
There are numbered illustrations of how to thread your machine step by step located at the top of the machine and thanks to these instructions. it is easier to transfer thread from the original spool to the bobbin, which is a smaller spool that goes under the machine. See More
There's a picture at the side of the machine with images of the stitches and its assigned number. You can select one among the 100 stitches, input them using the buttons below the LCD, and the screen displays which presser foot to use. It also automatically sets the stitch length, width, and tension, which you can still adjust to your own preference. See More
The automatic needle threading capability helps those with poor eyesight, shaky hands, and those rushing on projects. Place the thread on the hook near the needle and the machine will thread the needle for you. There is absolutely no need to insert the thread on the needle's small eye by yourself. See More
The case which is made of a hard plastic material is very useful for those who travel and carry the machine around. It protects it from damage and moisture. You can also use the case as a storage compartment to keep it dust-free. See More
The sewing speed is easily controlled using the slider. The speed is more consistent compared to when the foot pedal is used. For beginners and children in particular, it is best to sew on slow speed to make sure the seam and stitches are even. See More
At the top part of the machine where bobbin threading occurs are numbered illustrations that tell you exactly where to put the thread in, where to hook it, where the bobbin should be placed, etc. The illustrations tell you what to do and where to do it, making it easier to follow instead of having to refer to the manual.
