Stay secure - The lockstitch key ties off your stitches with the touch of a button.

ICAPS auto detection - Automatic fabric thickness detection keeps foot pressure steady and stitch length even for consistent results.

Advanced motor-driven dual drive foot - Powerful walking foot to sew an array of fabrics with ease, even thick denims and delicate silks.

Create your own stitches - With My Custom Stitch™ you can create your own decorative stitches straight into your machine via the LCD touchscreen. Save them to use time and time again.
