The Singer 7469Q Confidence quilter has a fast and easy needle threader, and 13 different needle positions for any type of project – zippers, cording, topstitching, etc. The auto reverse function can be set to reinforce your stitches at the beginning and end without even thinking about it. The needle is also programmable to stop up or down, which is a huge plus when sewing patchwork and pivoting.
The bobbin on the Singer 7469Q loads from the top very easily and has a jam resistant design. You also don’t have to pull up the bobbin thread when you start sewing, you just drop in the bobbin and go. When you wind a bobbin, the needle disengages automatically which saves time and aggravation.
Presser Feet and Feed Dogs
There are 9 different presser feet included with the Singer 7469Q Confidence Quilter. They include
- General purpose presser foot
- Buttonhole presser foot
- Zipper foot
- Blind hem foot
- Darning and Embroidery foot
- ¼ Inch foot – perfect for creating patchwork quilt blocks
- Open toe foot
- Even feed foot
- Satin stitch foot
They snap on and off easily so no tools are needed when changing the presser feet. The presser foot lifter is extra high to accommodate thick fabrics and layers (quilts of course). And the presser foot pressure control keeps the stitches even no matter what the fabric weight. You can feel confident when sewing everything from crepe to thick denim. There is a lifter for the feed dogs that lowers them for free motion stitches, embroidery, and button holes. The feed dog mechanism itself moves in a box motion, ensuring even movement from front to back of the presser foot.
