Patterned after Singer's famous class 15 machines (15-88, 15-91, etc), the Japanese makers added some great features, like the one touch sewing foot pressure release and one touch pressure setting, a stronger motor, and beautiful color.

She uses universal needles and standard class 15 bobbins, the most common in the world, and available everywhere.
The needle plate is conveniently marked for you, to guide your fabric for perfect seams, and there's a generous amount of room to the right of the needle to make it easier to sew your bulkier projects.
She will sew dresses and quilts, baby things and patches on your jeans, and if you want to sew heavier things, she can handle it. Sew multiple layers of heavy material and garment leather. Recover the cushions in your little trailer. Create things that no one else has ever thought of. She can do it.
Best of all, we've been deep inside her and she's been cleaned of the old dried-on oil on her shafts and in her movement points so that she moves freely again. She's been lubricated with our our own special blend of oils designed to find their way into the dry joints and pivots so her strength and speed are returned to their like-new flexibility.

Sorry, she's SOLD!
