Singer 5400 Sew Mate Sewing Machine
Not every home sewer wants bells and whistles. Some just want a reasonably priced but sufficiently flexible machine that does not require a degree in computer science to operate. The Singer 5400 Sew Mate is the machine for them.
The Singer 5400 Sew Mate Sewing Machine could be nicknamed the ‘Just Enough’ Singer. There are just enough built-in stitches, 60, to be versatile but not overwhelming. These stitches include eight essential stitches, eight stretch stitches for knits, 40 decorative stitches for embellishment and attractive detailing, and four fully-automatic buttonholes for garments of all types.
Just enough accessories for most sewing tasks are included and additional presser feet for specialized projects are readily available at most sewing and fabric stores. Users can purchase what they need and are not saddled with several dozen items that they will never use. A general-purpose foot, a zipper foot, also used for piping, and a buttonhole foot come with the machine. Other accessories are extra needles in three sizes, extra bobbins, a thread spool cap plus an auxiliary spool pin with felt, a darning plate to cover feed dogs, a small screwdriver for the needle plate, a combination seam ripper/lint brush and a soft-sided cover. An instruction manual that includes a handy stitch guide, a foot pedal, a Machine Intro DVD, and power cord complete the package. Even sewers with little experience can be up and running in a very few minutes, no learning curve involved.
A free arm sewing machine, the 5400 offers just enough additional features to make sewing easy for the novice and experienced sewer alike. Store accessories handily in a compartment in the removable sewing table. An automatic needle threader and bobbin winding clutch streamline the two most tedious aspects of sewing. Stitch selection is easily accomplished using push buttons and a stitch chart. Automatic optimum stitch length and width settings are built-in, though the user can override these automatic selections when necessary, while 13 needle positions provide maximum flexibility for any sewing project.
The Sew Mate is moderately priced at $249.99, just enough to guarantee that this is a serious and functional sewing machine, but not so much as to inflict major damage on anyone’s budget. Beginners will appreciate the ease of operation and more advanced sewers will find all the stitches they need without being overwhelmed by extraneous features. Once again, Singer delivers a machine that will meet the needs of a particular group of home sewers and does it extremely well.
