Singer 3223P Petrol Sewing Machine
The Singer 3223P Petrol Sewing Machine, is one of the newest editions to Singer's Simple Sewing Machines. It's an inexpensive, easy to use model for beginners that has enough features that you can continue to use for years without outgrowing it. Easy to follow arrows printed on the machine guide you as you thread the machine for sewing or for winding the bobbin. You won't have to read the instruction manual every time until you've learned the steps. The machine has 23 built in stitches -- six essential stitches, seven stretch stitches, nine decorative stitches, and an automatic four-step buttonhole stitch. The six essential stitches include the straight stitch, the basic zig-zag, a multi-stitch zig-zag for mending, and a blind hem stitch for machine-sewn hems. The seven stretch stitches include a blind hem stitch for stretch fabrics and a straight stretch stitch for sewing seams on stretch fabrics. Because the straight stretch stitch is triple stitched, with the machine completing two forward stitches and one backward stitch, this stitch also reinforces seams in heavier fabrics or seams that will receive a lot of wear and tear. You can also use the machine to sew on buttons. For free-arm sewing, detach the built-in accessory case.
The stitch selection knob on the front of Singer 3223P Petrol Sewing Machine and the stitch width, stitch length, and thread tension dials at the top of the machine make it easy to choose appropriate settings for various stitches and fabrics. Illustrations in the instruction manual demonstrate the effects of the settings. Singer Sewing Machines' well-written manual also includes a chart for selecting the appropriate sewing machine needle size and thread weight for fabrics of various weights. When you are sewing heavier fabrics that create bulky seams, you can lift the pressure bar on this machine higher so that you can more easily get the fabric under the sewing machine needle. The manual provides instructions in French and Spanish as well as English.
The Singer 3223P Petrol Sewing Machine comes with an all-purpose foot, a zipper foot, a buttonhole foot, a button sewing foot, a seam edge/quilting guide, sewing machine needles, a spool holder, extra bobbins, an L-screwdriver, a darning plate that you can also use for machine embroidery, a soft-sided dust cover, a foot control, a power cord, an instruction manual, a quick start guide, and an introductory DVD.
