The Patchwork 7285Q sewing machine is designed with quilting in mind. It has 100 stitches from which to choose, you can make and embellish quilts, as well as sew fashions, home decor and much more. Programmable needle up/down is a must-have for quilting, sewing appliques and even topstitching. When you select a stitch, the optimum stitch length and width are selected for you, saving time. Customize stitches to personalize projects using adjustable stitch length and stitch width, viewable on the LCD screen. You can even set the maximum sewing speed of the machine using the speed control lever – slower for free-motion quilting or faster for those long seams – you're always in control. Sew buttonholes in one easy step with consistent results every time. You can even choose from 6 different styles of buttonholes – like the basic bartack style, round end and keyhole, great for menswear and outerwear. Take off the Removable Storage Compartment to access the free arm, which makes it even easier to sew around trouser hems and cuffs, children's clothing and other smaller projects. Bonus quilting accessories are included: the Quarter Inch Foot for piecing as well as sewing other small projects, the Even Feed/Walking Foot to help keep quilt layers from shifting, the Satin Stitch Foot for sewing appliques or more dense decorative stitches, and the Darning/Embroidery Foot that allows you to do free-motion sewing like stippling, thread painting and monograms.
