Thread the machine quickly and easily. Just follow the arrows on the machine, and you are threaded in a snap. Heavy-Duty Metal Frame
This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing. Automatic Tension
This system ensures stable stitch quality, regardless of fabric type. Feel free to override the preset tension for special project settings. Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
The extra-high presser foot lifter offers more clearance when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot. 7mm Stitch Width
Select stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7 mm. When sewing decorative stitches or satin stitches the wide stitches are bolder and more pronounced. Automatic Presser Foot Pressure
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 pressure adjustments. Vertical & Horizontal Thread Delivery
In addition to the machine's horizontal thread delivery, a second vertical spool holder is provided at the back of the machine specifically designed for many of today's threads. Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch

Awesome price, great results
Changing to embroidery unit – no problem, though getting the right foot attached usually takes me a sec. I daringly started off with one of my own Embird designs… without a glitch, even without the use of stabilizer, just straight onto firm cotton.
I love that the machine is easy to use, especially the Futura software. Its 24 standard stitches are more than enough, its embroidery is great. And my absolute favorite is the hoop size! Other machines with a similar (still higher) price tag come with a 4″x4″ hoop, this one has two hoops with a maximum of 5″x7″. You might not think you will need this, but you will – either when doing multiple designs on one large hoop, or just embroidering longer names.
The manual could be improved at times, but I hardly ever needed it.
I hear people complaining about broken thread – honestly, just like with every machine, you just need to know the Singer’s quirks.
During the first 3-5 stitches of every color, hold the upper thread in the back, and no false thread breakage will occur. If it still does, thread the whole thing again and you will be fine. Don’t use pre-wound bobbins without stabilizer. It will give you trouble after only 1/3 of the bobbin is empty, and since the bobbin case is plastic, you really shouldn’t use metal bobbins either. Just wind your own bobbins when needed, it is easy enough.
Make sure that you use good embroidery yarn; every machine has brands it doesn’t like. I am currently extremely happy with the Madeira yarns.
The fact that it needs a computer next to it… You know that before buying, don’t you? To me, that is not a disadvantage at all, since I appreciate the large screen, and that I can work in Embird while the machine embroiders, preparing the next project.
It really is an awesome machine for that price. In Europe, the only difference between the 150 and the 250/350 are the number of stitches and which software is included.
Since I am using Embird, I really needed nothing except the Futura software to send designs to the machine, and 24 stutches is more than enough for what I do.
I highly recommend the machine – I am utterly in love with it.
Tooks some patience but I love it
Love, love, love it!
