One Step™ Plate Converter Simply press a button to release one plate, then snap a new one in place – it takes just seconds, with no screwdrivers required! The enhanced straight stitch plate allows precise needle adjustment for scant ¼” seams. When using lightweight fabrics or piecing quilts, a straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference. The system also has a sensor which allows only an appropriate stitch to be sewn with the straight stitch needle plate in place, so no need to worry about breaking a needle! Both the standard zig zag and enhanced straight stitch needle plates are included with the Atelier 6
Superior Feed Plus (SFS+) system The SFS+ system features a unique 7 piece feed dog system that stays parallel as it moves up and down, maintaining constant contact with the fabric. This “flat feed” technology provides better control, whether sewing forward or backward
AcuFeed Flex™ layered fabric feeding system Our AcuFeed Layered Fabric Feeding System has long been legendary in the sewing and quilting world for its amazing precision and power. It works with the SFS system to ensure multiple layers of fabric move together under the needle with perfect precision. AcuFeed Flex perfectly guides your fabric from the top and bottom. It's perfect for quilts, plaids and any sewing requiring precise control. The AcuFeed Flex system is removable –when not in use, simply store it in one of the ample accessory trays
LCD screen The LCD screen has 8 direct stitch selection keys for commonly used stitches plus easy access to functions – stitch elongation, twin needle setting, mirror image, stitch startover, machine lock and the set menu
Easy Set bobbin case and cover The specially designed bobbin case and cover mean there’s no need to pull long thread tails up and through when you first thread the machine. Slip the bobbin thread in the cover plate guide; the built in cutting blades trim the tail to the correct length for a super –clean start to your stitching line. After the initial threading, the auto-thread cutter takes care of trimming and re-setting the tails each time
One-hand needle threader When depressed, the one-hand threader stays in the down position for mnore control and extra easy threading
