Ample Work Area and Ergonomic Design
The seamless, heavy-duty, powder-coated, all metal flatbed offers an uninterrupted, large sewing area with 13.5 inches (343mm) to the right of the needle. With a 5.51 inch (140mm) workspace height and 3.15” of space above the needle plate you’ll complete any sewing project with ease.
Advanced LCD Touchscreen
The advanced touchscreen shows all of the information you need to sew with ease. Select new stitches and memorize your favorites for quick access. The expanded Sewing Applications feature gives you guidance for perfecting a variety of sewing tasks, including those that use optional accessories. With Memorized Quilt Seaming, the machine remembers the length of your seam, so you can cruise through stitching a large number of the same size blocks.
AcuFeed Flex™ Plus
Our AcuFeed™ Layered Fabric Feeding System has long been legendary in the sewing and quilting world for its amazing precision and power. We’ve taken it to the next level with the AcuFeed™ Flex Plus. The system is still removable but, adding and removing it from the machine has become more advanced - simply touch the AcuFeed icon on your screen to engage or disengage the foot. This ensures that the AcuFeed Flex foot is attached correctly and prevents it from becoming dis-engaged prematurely. AcuFeed™ Flex comes in three useful options. The two-pronged AcuFeed™ feet advance fabric flawlessly from the top and bottom. Use this system for quilting, seaming, and traditional sewing. Our special one pronged AcuFeed™ feet give precise control for more detailed work, like installing zippers and matching seams. And, our HP2 AcuFeed Flex foot is designed to work with our HP plate, for the highest level of stitch results.
Professional Grade Needle Plate, HP foot & HP2 foot
Utilize this narrow gauge industrial type feet for curves and precise topstitching. They provide great ease of control and superior visibility. Sized perfectly for creating 1/4” seams, achieve accurate stitches and perfects starts on any type of fabric.
Stitch Tapering Function
Create original designs for borders and decorative effects with the Stitch Tapering Function. This distinctive feature allows you to adjust stitches at a 30, 45, 90, and 120 angle to combine and edit built-in stitches. Apply this specialized technique through 41 stitches with the Tapering function.
Easy Threading Bobbin Case and Cover
The specially designed bobbin case and cover mean there’s no need to pull long thread tails up and through when you first thread the machine. Slip the bobbin thread in the cover plate guide; the built in cutting blades trim the tail to the correct length for a superclean start to your stitching line. After the initial threading, the auto-thread cutter takes care of trimming and re-setting the tails each time.
