6-Segment Feeding System
This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This makes for much more accurate feeding.

Box Feed
This is a feed dog motion that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the 6-point feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.

Storage area means accessories are always easily accessible.

    I bought this machine less than a month ago and it has been performing excellently. It is easy to use and would not be difficult for a beginner to set up. I'm extremely impressed with its performance on various types of fabrics and their thickness. I highly recommend this machine for all levels of experience.

    Amazing service and super machine.
    I ordered on the 23/12 and received the machine on the 24/12.
    Such an easy machine to use, feels really sturdy and sews really quickly!
    I wanted a basic machine for sewing woven fabrics and free motion sewing, as my other machine tends to eat some of my work. But this is so much better than I had expected, really smooth sewing.
    Thank you so much I’m really happy I found your site.

    Delivery was fast, ordered Saturday evening received on the Monday. I was looking for a robust machine with a good stitch for a variety of fabrics & this fitted my requirement perfectly. I have no hesitation in recommending both Sewing Machine Sales & the singer Heavy duty sewing machine. Thank you!

    Impressed by the fast delivery even during the lockdown period. The price was the best I could find on-line. The machine is amazing. I was looking for a good all-rounder machine. I used it a couple of times and is really happy with my purchase. Highly recommended.

    Impressed with fast delivery and very impressed with the machine. You cannot tell it is ex-display apart from the box it came in which had obviously been re-sealed. Otherwise I tested the machine on all types of stitches and button holes. Now I should be able to stitch through layers of denim when turning up jeans!
