You may see this machine being sold for many pounds more. We have a dedicated buying team that has managed to source the fantastic machine at a fantastic price. The Singer Brilliance 6160 Sewing Machine is computerised and light weight, it is easy to use. It has many automatic features often only found on more expensive sewing machines, for example 60 stitches, LED screen and four styles of fully automatic button holes.
Each stitch once selected at a press of the button is pre-set to the optimum settings for width and length (both can be overridden if required) imagine key hole buttonholes at the touch of a button.
The extra high lift option for the presser foot is a useful addition and is handy for quilters who need that extra height to mange multiple fabric layers and wadding thickness. Singer 6160 also has the ability to do free-motion embroidery. It has extras you might not expect in a machine in this price range. Loading of the bobbin is from the front and the built-in needle thread make threading simple.
The Singer 6160 is a fantastic piece of equipment they any sewer would be happy to use and create a project on or to mend or customise clothing.
