And, since the M7 comes with three needle plates, changing them out for the proper application is a breeze.
SFS-i, Intelligent Feed System
The new SFS-i, intelligent feed system, is designed to keep the feed dogs down and out of the way, so that you can easily position your fabric where you want it to be. As soon as you start sewing, the feed dogs come up and perfectly grab the fabric.
