SwiftSmart Threading System with Automatic Needle Threader
Simply guide the thread directly from the spool to the needle area through a single groove and thread the needle by pressing the lever.
OneTouch Stitch Selection
Easy to select, easy to personalize.
Drop & Sew Bobbin System

Presser Foot Sensor with Error Message and Buzzer
Ensures the presser foot is in position for an easy start.
Quick View Stitch Setting
When either the length or width of a stitch is changed, the corresponding LED light turns yellow for notification of the change.
A conveniently located lever lowers the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms, and button sewing.
Simple Stitch Adjustment
Automatic optimal settings for stitch length and width can be overridden to personalize projects.
Extra-Large Sewing Space
The arm of the machine measures 14.7 inches, allowing sewers to easily manage quilts and other large projects.
03 StayBright™ LED Lights
Three lamps illuminate the sewing surface for optimal viewing. The long-lasting bulbs (100,000 hours) stay cool regardless of how long the machine is being operated.
Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
Offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers or bulky fabric under the presser foot.
Heavy-Duty Metal Frame
The internal rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing and overall durability.
Provides easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas.
Center Zigzag Taper
When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center not the left or right providing a more attractive look when tapering into or out from a point.
7mm Stitch Width
Many stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm for satin and decorative stitches.
This system ensures stable stitch quality regardless of the type of fabric.
Push the conveniently located automatic reverse button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control
The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is adjusted automatically. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making presser foot pressure adjustments.
With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
7-Segment Feeding System
This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This provides for much more accurate feeding of the fabric.
This is a function that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.
The accessories are conveniently stored in the removable storage compartment providing easy access.
Snap-On Presser Feet
Easily change snap-on presser feet without use of a screwdriver.
Located on the machine for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step ofcutting thread with scissors.

I have this machine and a xl400 as well as a a 1968 610 touch and sew. The 160 is my toto machine. I now leave the XL400 in embroidery mode and the 610 touch and sew sits inside the cabinet. I like the 160 because it is quit and stats and stops on a dime. It is a must to use the diffrent stitches that come on the 160. You will find you can use the decorative stitches with a bit of imagination you can spice up simple items. I have had this for over a year. There is one issue I have with this and that is the plastic cover over the bobbin. The little end that pops up the cover once unlatched to remove it bracks. So it won't pop up. No big deal just keep useing it. Just push down lightly down on the side away from you and the front side pops up. Another problem is you will start sewing and you get a warning no thread. Think is C6 all you do is on top of the machine grab the thread and tug in pulling it backward towards the spool. Then sew normaly. That's it what I like and the 2 problems and how to fix it. Enjoy
