-- The LCD GraphicDisplay shows the chosen stitch in actual size before it is sewn, along with other important sewing information that sets up sewers for success.
-- The Exclusive Sensor One-Step Buttonhole Foot repeats the selected length of perfectly balanced buttonholes by sewing both sides of the buttonhole in the same direction.
-- Dual lights illuminate the needle and extended sewing surface to eliminate eye strain and make sewing easier.
