Three lights over the sewing area address a feature asked for by consumers -

is also more pleasurable because the well lighted sewing area reduces eye-stain
often caused by working in low lighting.

New! Exclusive Buttonhole
This is a SINGER™ developed system that sandwiches fabric between a lower plate
and the foot, to ensure perfect buttonholes on multiple layers of fabric.
Effectively, this is like a mini-embroidery hoop in which the machine feeds the
attachment, rather than the fabric. It makes creating buttonholes possible in
places that conventional buttonhole devices cannot easily reach.
New! Programmable Needle Up and
Select whether the needle is in up or down position when the machine stops. It
is beneficial to have the needle stop in the down position when appliquéing,
quilting or pivoting fabric. When removing fabric or picking the bobbin thread
up, program the needle to raise to the highest position. 13 Needle Positions
