My absolute favourite thing, more than 25 different needle positions!! Together with my narrow zipper foot, I can get as close as I like to anything at all.
Hands free presser foot - tap once and foot is gently lowered. Press button to raise the foot - press it again to get a higher lift.
Hands free needle up, needle down - with foot lowered, tap once and needle is either brought from down to up or up to down, with my hands continuing to hold my work steady.
Automatic pivot - when the needle is down and you stop stitching, the presser foot automatically raises slightly so you can pivot and keep going - especially helpful on curves when you want to make small adjustments.
Easy stitch selection and automatic presser foot pressure based on stitch and fabric.
Foolproof buttonholes in several styles - now I don't avoid a project that requires buttons.
Deep throat - made for quilting, so there is plenty of space to the right of the needle, along with an additional light.
Plenty of stitches for every occasion - more than I will ever use!
Additional feet are reasonably costly - even the basic ones are $40 AUD+, but on the plus side almost all of those I had amassed for my 22yo Optima 610 can be used on my new machine.
