Same as every other product that has ever been made by Singer, the S18 sewing machine is also great in terms of quality. Singer S18 seems to be ideal for quilting as it comes with a powerful motor, large throat space and a number of automatic features that will make the work easier for you.
The model was designed for heavy-duty quilting and sewing work, meaning that it’s great for professionals looking to cut on the time needed to do their work. It may be on the other end of the price spectrum, but its price is justified considering how great it is. You can look at buying it as an investment for the future.
Singer S18 Main Features
This unit will help you tackle even large projects as its working space is 9 inches in length and 6 inches in width, to the right of the needle. When it comes to the total space, its extension table is 23 x 15 inches. The machine also features a ruler that allows measurements of up to 18 inches.
The model comes with a built-in computer which has 400 different stitch patterns, but you are also enabled to create your own, which it can memorize for future use. In fact, you are able to store up to 50 different patterns of stitches. All of it is done by using the control panel and the LCD screen that is back lit. Apart from stitches, there are also 2 block and script alphabets, as well as 7 automatic buttonholes.
It also features a knee lifter, which allows you to use both of your hands during precise work, for example, free motion quilting. When it comes to needles, there are 15 different positions offered, meaning that you can pick the right one for the work that you’re doing.
When it comes to the automatic features that will make the job easier for you, those include the top drop-in bobbin sensor, automatic needle threader, and thread trimmer, etc. In order to learn how to use these features, you are advised to use the help of the user guide, which is pretty elaborate. Another thing that will help you get a hold of the whole process is the needle plate with measurements, both metric and imperial. On top of that, it also contains the measurements of angles, which makes quilting a much easier task.
