needle threader

Automatic needle threader whisks the thread through the needle’s eye with a simple lever press, saving your time and preventing strained eyesight.


start stop

Clever Start/Stop button offers special color-coded system that keeps you informed and in control.

  • Glowing green Start/Stop button means your machine is ready to sew. Simply press the button, and you’re off and running.
  • If the Start/Stop button is illuminated red, that means the machine isn’t quite ready to sew. Maybe you forgot to lower the presser foot, or the bobbin needs attention. Check for any potential issues before hitting the button again.
  • Orange glow on the Start/Stop button signifies that your machine is currently in bobbin winding mode. This is a handy visual cue to let you know it’s not ready for sewing until you’ve finished winding that perfect bobbin.


reverse stitch

Handy reverse and reinforcement stitch functions helps to add an extra layer of reinforcement to your projects and prevent them from unraveling.

  • Reverse Stitch allows you to sew backwards for a short distance, effectively locking your stitches in place at the beginning or end of your seam. It’s a great way to add extra security to areas that might experience stress, like pockets or hems.

  • Reinforcement Stitch allows the machine to lay down a series of tiny stitches in a specific pattern, creating a stronger lock at the beginning or end of your seam, that might be useful for heavier fabrics or areas that will endure a lot of wear and tear.

Using these stitches is quite easy, you need just simply hold down the reverse or reinforcement stitch button while you start or stop sewing.

With a simple press of the button, the machine instantly raises or lowers the needle, allowing you to reposition your fabric with ease.

Another press of the button brings the needle to a stop position right where you left off, if you need to pause your stitching without losing your place. This might be useful for intricate details or when you need to adjust your fabric for perfect placement.
