Don’t let the pretty look of this sewing machine fool you. This SINGER 8763 Curvy Computerized Free-Arm sewing machine comes with 30 pre-loaded stitches to choose from, with adjustable stitch width and length. Buttonholes can be made using one of two included one-step completely automatic buttonhole features and a unique bobbin system.
Threading the machine is easy with the SwiftSmart automatic needle threading system. The most popular quilting stitches are included. The presser foot lifter is extra-high to allow you to show off your expert quilting skills. And there are three StayBright LED lights to keep your sewing space well lit as you work.
Some of the great features that set the SINGER 8763 apart from the crowd are:
- SwiftSmart system: this automatic needle threader is perhaps the biggest timesaver in sewing.
- Stitch selection: for your sewing to be its best, you need the right stitch at the right length and right width. The SINGER 8763 allows you to adjust stitch length and width to the size you need. All it takes is the touch of a button to choose the stitch you want at the optimum settings for the length, width and balance you need. There’s no need to worry about pressure and tension, either; they are included in the one-button stitch selection feature. There’s even a convenient automatic reverse button to reinforce stitching.
- Drop and Sew bobbin system: quicker threading comes with proper bobbin thread pick up. That’s what the automatic Drop and Sew bobbin system does for you. There’s an automatic bobbin winding clutch to automatically disengage the needle bar when a bobbin is being wound. This makes preparing a bobbin safer.
- One-step Buttonholes: your garments won’t look professional if you don’t have proper buttonholes. The SINGER 8763 gives you professional results with 2 fully automatic one-step buttonhole functions at the touch of a button.
- Twin Needles: you can elect to use a twin sewing method, opting for two parallel rows that can be used to add a decorative touch. By manually changing the stitch width, you can create pintucks and other decorative flourishes with twin needle sewing. Projects can be quickly finished with SINGER’s maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches per minute. You get a stable stitch quality, regardless of the type of fabric you’re using, with the automatic tension control.
