When the button is pressed continuously, the machine sews stitch by stitch at low speed, great for finishing

Automatic Needle Threader
The push lever automatic needle threader easily threads the needle without eyestrain and allows you to start sewing quickly.

Heavy-Weight Materials are sewn with Ease

The speed control mechanism, operated by microcomputer, allows the machine to sew material at low speeds. This provides for accurate feed and perfect stitching when sewing heavy weight fabrics, quilting and multiple layers of materials.

Knee Lifter Lever
The knee lifter lever allows you to lift / lower the presser foot without using your hands
Adjustment of Presser Foot Pressure
Presser foot pressure can be adjusted according to the fabric being sewn by turning a regulator located on the top of the machine
optional fitted front and rear handles with stipple box and trim button makes it a perfect setup on the Swiftquilter ($250.00) or check the package deals
Even Feed Foot
With its reliable feed, the even feed foot ensures the machine's ability to produce beautiful seams when sewing difficult-to-feed fabrics such as georgette and velvet, as well as heavy weight materials such as leather

Stipple control now works with foot control for even control quilting off the Swiftquilter
