There's no doubting the new Singer Legacy C440 is a stylish looking sewing machine no matter which direction you are looking from. The pure white satin finish to its outer panels along with multiple LED lighting and curvy shape gives the Singer Legacy a presents like on other sewing machine, but will it sew as well as it looks..?
On first switch on, just like most other computerised machines, the Legacy C440 clicks and buzzes as the internal motors spin to sense the precise position of components like it’s needle, feed, bobbin winder and presser foot, then with another buzz its ready.
Then the large mono touch screen displays two options, regular stitches or personal stitches where you can string decorative stitches together or create words, names or slogans from the two built-in alphabets. Really from here on the machine is simple to operate, just select the desired stitch which is pre-set to optimum settings to suit most sewing applications and fabrics (length and width can be adjusted if needed), quickly thread the needle using the automatic needle threader, drop in the bobbin, press the start button and sew your seam.
Thread snips button – cuts both the top and bobbin thread when needed.
Automatic Thread Tension - No mater what your sewing thers no need to worry about thread tension ever again.
Needle up / down button – no need to reach for the hand wheel and rotate it, often in the wrong direction when removing fabric form under the foot.
Reverse button – a simple press of the button to reverse stitch.
Tie-off button – use this when you require the machine to automatically sew-in the threads at the start and end of a seam.
Fast and slow speed button – handy for setting the correct speed when quilting or doing free-motion embroidery. Or when coming to an awkward or tricky corner and the machine needs to be stitching in slow motion.
Start / stop button – use this when the foot control has not been plugged in, to start and stop the machine when needed. Handy when stitching long seams in curtains, set the machine to sew at a medium speed and use both hands to manipulate the curtain materials with out having to worry about the heavy curtain fowling the foot control.
