  • Programmable Needle Up/Down
  • The programmable needle up/down feature is vital for quilters when piecing together patchworks. Select to have the needle stop in the down position when appliquéing, quilting or pivoting fabric. When removing the fabric from the machine, the needle must be raised to the highest position.
  • Electronic Twin Needle Control 
  • Twin needle sewing creates two parallel rows of stitching, adding a decorative touch to any project. With the electronic twin needle control, stitches are automatically adjusted for twin needle sewing in a snap. Full instructions are included in the manual.
  • Automatic Tension
  • This system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever type of fabric is being used.
  • 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 presser foot adjustments.
  • Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter

  • Tie-off decorative stitches with just a push of a button. With 4 tiny tacking stitches the start and end of the pattern is reinforced. This ensures quality stitching and prevents unraveling.
  • Automatic Tie-Off Function
  • This function reinforces the start and end of seams for stronger stitching.
  • Automatic Reverse
  • Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
  • Sewing Speed
  • With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
  • DC Motor
  • Provides instant start up and stop with no casting, for accurate and precise stitch placement
  • Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
  • Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer
  • 6-Segment Feeding System with Box Feed 
  • This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This makes for much more accurate fabric feeding. Box Feed 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 throughout the entire feed process, as the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.
  • Heavy Duty Metal Frame
  • The internal skeleton of the sewing machine. This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.
  • Direct Drive
  • The needle bar is geared straight from the motor, rather than from a drive bar across the machine. This makes the machine more powerful and durable.
  • Thread Cutter
  • Located on the machine for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step of cutting thread with scissors

not for quilters

I recently had an opportunity to use this machine during a workshop day with my quilting group. I wanted to teach the owner of the machine to do free motion quilting and we couldn't do it because there was no way to release the pressure of the presser foot. I couldn't move the quilt around under the foot at all. The owner didn't have the manual with her so we looked for a way to release the pressure but couldn't find anything. A visit to your site today has revealed to me that there is no way to release the pressure of the foot with this machine. This machine is no good for quilters at all. One wonders who designed such a machine and then gave it a such a misleading name. I couldn't and wouldn't recommend this machine to anyone.

Too Many Problems For A New Machine, Poorly Designed Piecing Foot

First let me say that I have been through three of these machines hence the low rating. I do a lot of quilting and my other sewing machine just didn’t have the power to go through multiple layers of fabric so my husband bought me this one for my birthday. Singer’s 7469Q Confidence Quilter looked good and would allow me to free motion quilt plus it came with extra presser feet specific to quilting.

The first machine I got, I used for a few weeks and the top thread started breaking, then it started making a clunking noise. Singer’s customer service said to send it back, which we did.

The second machine came but when using the ¼ inch piecing foot it wouldn’t go through multiple layers of fabric, the needle just went up and down and I’d end up with a big ball of thread underneath. It will go through two layers of fabric fine but no more than that. I found that if I used one of the regular feet and marked the ¼ inch seam allowance that it worked ok so it appeared that the ¼ inch piecing presser foot was the problem. I called Singer customer service a second time and was told that I needed to start sewing half way into my fabric – that doesn’t work when piecing quilt blocks. They were less than helpful. This machine was also set to be sent back but the third one that came was labeled "Factory Serviced" and looked like it had been dropped on its head. You couldn't even thread it since the opening was smashed shut. This one was also sent back.

Another problem I’m having is with the tension, I have to keep adjusting it even when using the same kind of thread…IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING! Also the instruction manual is missing important information on the different presser feet which would be very helpful. For machine quilting with the walking foot and free motion quilting with the darning foot it does great but for piecing quilt blocks it really stinks!

Great Features, Easy To Use
Poor Quality

I loved sewing on this machine. However, my main reason for this machine is quilting. That's where I'm

not happy. I was quilting the top of a lap quilt, the first one on my new machine, and it quit working. I had to send off to have it looked at. The diagnosis was it needs a new motor. I was told it would take three months to get a new motor. Thank goodness it was still under warranty. The bad part was that I still had a quilt to finish not to mention two others to quilt for Christmas gifts.
