Additional Features & Benefits

Programmable Needle Up and Down
Select whether the needle is up or down when the machine stops. It is beneficial to have the needle stop in the down position when appliquéing, quilting or pivoting fabric.

Six Fully Automatic One-step Buttonholes
Buttonhole sewing is a one-step simple process, providing reliable results. Each side is sewn in the same direction, creating beautifully balanced buttonholes.

LCD Screen
The LCD provides clear and easy viewing of stitch patterns, including stitch width and length.

Adjustable Stitch Length
Optimal settings for length are automatically adjusted when choosing a stitch. They can be overridden to personalize length choice.

Adjustable Stitch Width
Optimal settings for width are automatically adjusted when choosing a stitch. They can be overridden to personalize width choice.

Center Zigzag Taper
When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, not the left or right. This provides a more attractive look when tapering into or out of a point.

Automatic Tacking Stitch Function
Tie-off decorative stitches with just a push of a button. With four tiny tacking stitches, the start and end of the pattern is reinforced ensuring quality stitching and preventing unraveling.

Automatic Tie-off Function
The Automatic tie-off function reinforces the start and end of seams (straight stitches) for stronger stitching.

Exclusive Buttonhole Underplate
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 as well as delicate and stretch fabrics.

7mm Stitch Width
When sewing select stitches, the wide stitches are bolder and more pronounced.

20 Character Memory
A memory bank holds full names and simple phrases.

3-Step Infinite Length Bar-Tack Buttonhole
Create buttonholes with endlessly long sides. This is ideal when sewing non-traditional sized buttonholes.

Electronic Twin Needle Control
With just the touch of a button create two parallel rows adding a decorative touch.

13 Needle Positions
Needle position can be adjusted for techniques, such as inserting zippers, cording and topstitching.

Automatic Tension
This system ensures stable stitch quality when straight stitching no matter what type of fabric is being used.

Editing Capabilities
Editing is simple. A cursor button can be moved through the 20-space memory. If a stitch or letter needs to be removed, use the editing button.

Mirror Image
Select stitches can be mirror imaged for decorative stitching.

Continuous Pattern
Select stitches can be sewn either as a single pattern or continuously.

Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control
The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is automatic. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim without making adjustments.

Jam-Proof Bobbin System
The bobbin case floats above the hook, precluding thread jams. The machine will not jam, even when sewing on sheer fabric or no fabric at all.

2 StayBright LED Lights
The long-lasting bulbs (100,000 hours) stay cool, regardless how long the machine is operated.

Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
When the Presser Foot Lifter is held in the extra-high position it offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot.

Drop Feed Dogs
A conveniently located lever will lower the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms, and for attaching buttons.

Heavy Duty Metal Frame
This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.

Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding more convenient.

Electronic Stitch Formation
Digital electronic control of the stepper motors that control the pattern formation allows for perfectly formed patterns every time.

Pattern Override Memory
The machine remembers, so you don’t have to. Select a pattern, override the width and/or length, and the machine will remember those changes. Select a different pattern and then return to the overridden pattern —the override settings will still be in place as long as the machine is not turned off.

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 because the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.

Optimum Power Control
A control system that senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric conditions. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple (6 to 8) layers of fabric.

Snap-On Presser Feet
Change from one to another effortlessly with a simple push of the foot release button.

On Board Storage
Accessories are always within reach.

225 stitch patterns including basic, decorative, stretch and alphanumeric.

I have had this machine for about a month. I have made a quilt, 4 shirts, and 3 sets of curtains with it. I am a sewing novice. I spent some time on my mother's machine as a kid, it was unfortunate as it broke a lot, and now I'm really learning how to do it through quilting and sewing classes.

Pros:
Auto tension! I love it. It works every time.
Drop in bobbin! I will never go back.
Easy to select stitches. (however,do read the manual before doing
twin needle work!)
Lots of choices for embellishing items with embroidery.
So far, no issues and I've sewn heavy and light fabrics.

Cons:
The autothreader takes more work than doing it myself.
You will need another light source if you like to sew at night.

I don't like that to reverse stitch I have to hold the button at
the same time I guide my fabric. Couldn't they just let me press
the button, then press the button again when I'm done with
reverse? (That's not novice friendly!)

A bit heavy to carry. I'm tough, but carrying it for more than a
short walk will get to you. Get a rollerboard carrier and skip
the plastic case.

**Update. 3/12/2014. Not built to last. Changing it to three stars. Yes, I've come a long way with sewing with this machine, but the timing is off now with the bobbin and needle, to the point where I cannot get the bobbin thread to catch. I've had it serviced multiple times for this. Today I took it apart myself with the bearings and the timing, but unsuccessfully.

The plastic cover has taken a beating with the service. Add to it, I've gotten into heavier things and this does jump like a jackrabbit and snap threads, despite needle changes and taking it slow. Moving on.

This is my 1st brand new machine. I had always rec'd hand-me-downs before and they were never good machines to begin with. I would rate myself as a decent sewer. I recently got into quilting. This machine you will give you nice stiches, you don't have to worry about your project falling apart. (If you have ever had that happen you know how devasting it can be). I think this machine would be good for anyone, even if they were new to sewing. The manual is super easy and so is winding the bobbin and threading the machine. I did a lot of research and for the features, this was the best quality for the price.
Good Luck to you and happy sewing!

I bought this machine in Nov.2008 and have been using it for about 4 months now. I had an entry level Singer for 22 yrs and decided to upgrade to this electronic machine. I consider myself an intermediate sewer who mostly does alteration for my family(taking in, hemming up, etc), and some easy sewing such as pajama pants, window valances, pillow cases,etc.

I am very pleased with the Singer Confidence, especially the price for the functions you get.

2 things I totally enjoy: 1)the automatic needle threader is wonderful! The trick is to make sure you start out with the needle in the highest position, and just follow the pictures in the manual. 2) the auto thread tension works! The machine does adjust itself to the fabric. Although it's still very important that the correct needle size is used. For just these 2 things, I find it worth the money.

PS- The embroidery is small (alphabet, a dog, heart, etc) and I understand that this is an entry level machine for embroidering. You only get a taste of it. This is not a serious embroidering machine.

May 2011 update after 2 1/2 years of use:

So far I have taken the machine in for one tune up. It continues to work well, and I had been productive with my various sewing projects, however I have gained a more seasoned perspective on this machine. I have to say that I am now somewhat disappointed for the following reasons:

The lighting on this machine is really really poor. I end up using extra lamps but, I found this problem to be a major deficiency because my old/cheaper machine did not have this problem. How can a $300+ machine has such an elementary problem?? So if you are 40+ yrs old, and contemplating this machine, I think you need to think about this lighting issue.

I thought this machine was jam proof. There are a lot nice features to this machine, but my thread keeps jamming up. I'm thinking of returning it.

4/1/09 -
I cleaned out the bobbin area, removed any threads, and rethreaded top and bottom and it now works like a charm. I've had to do this twice so far, so I'm not sure if it is something that I am doing wrong. It works great now. I decided to keep it.

6/23/09 -
I have sewn three quilts so far, and have only had one minor jamming problem. The problem was putting the bobbin in upside down. I flipped it right side up and that solved the problem. I love all the different stitches, but wish the alphabet feature had different font sizes. The size that comes with the machines is very small about 1/4 inch. I have a problem adding thread to the bobbin. The machine doesn't automatically add the thread very evenly, and I have to manually move the thread up and down the bobbin to keep the thread from bunching up in one area, otherwise I like this machine.

8/5/09
I was finally able to change the rating from two stars to four stars. Just waiting for Amazon to update the change.

1/20/10

After reading the instructions correctly I learned how to thread the bobbin correctly, and I have not had a problem since. I love the different stitches, very easy to use and my sewing buddies are jealous of my various stitches. This is a good price for what you get. I got mine for about $350 on amazon Dec08.
