The Featherweight C240 sewing machine is great for sewing in small spaces or for taking to sewing classes! Sew all kinds of fabrics: from sheer to denim – even leather, thanks to the Integrated Even Feed System which feeds fabric evenly from both the top and bottom, so you can sew even difficult fabrics with confidence. Seams in napped fabrics like velvet and corduroy, as well as quilt layers, won't shift. Sewing over thick areas like hems in jeans is a breeze. Engage the Programmable Needle Up/Down button to have your needle stop down in the fabric, which is great for applique, pivoting around a pocket corner or free-motion sewing. There is a Speed Control so that you can set the machine's maximum speed – slower for more intricate projects or faster for larger projects like curtains, duvet covers and more. Your selected stitch appears on the LCD screen, and by pressing the Info Button, the machine even advises you on which presser foot to use for that stitch. The Top Drop-in Bobbin is transparent, making it easy to monitor thread supply so you won't run out of thread in the middle of a seam! An online Owner's Class Video is available to view anytime as well.

Immediately tie-off the stitch and stop sewing automatically. You can even program the machine to perform the tie-off at the end of a stitch before you start to sew.
Integrated Even Feed System [IEF]

Great experience from ordering my Singer machine (via Janice) to delivery. Was assured by Janice items were in stock and I received order 3 days later. Freebies arrived separately a week later and were exactly as described. Very impressed and would definitely use again.
I decided to splash out on this model because of the built-in walking foot and the automatic needle threader. I have been slightly underwhelmed by both I must confess. Thick fabric still bunches and the needle threader seems only to work with Singer brand needles, which are not found locally. The build quality is a bit disappointing after the robustness of my previous Elna sewing machine and the plastic bobbin cover seems quite flimsy - quite a weak link as it is vital for sewing so if it splits I would be stymied. I bought a Singer for reliability and robustness as most of my sewing is soft furnishings, the embroidery element not very important. However the small amount of embroidery I have done was good with the stitches even and the electronic features useful. I particularly like the push button forward and back buttons, the lower and raise needle function and it is very easy to thread the machine. I probably won't still be sewing in 40 years but I hope the machine is still going strong for somebody else!
I did not get a free extension table. But a free roller foot that didn’t fit this machine as standard feet do not fit on the C240. Very disappointing. But the machine has a few feet with it. Nice machine. I like the fact it informs you which foot to use for all the patterns. I am gradually getting used to it’s functions. I find the needle threader a bit fiddly though and have to make several attempts, may just be me though. I love the light weight and size.
This machine is brilliant! It does exactly what I need it to do, shame it doesn’t do letters but hey, it does everything else and it’s fantastic. My mother before me had a Singer and they are always good machines. Just hope this one lives up to the reputation. I can’t wait to get it out of the cupboard each evening and weekend so I can sew on it.
A good model for a beginner or, in my case, a rusty returner. My only disappointment was the slight dent in the covering case which has not elicited a response from the company. The accessories I ordered at the time of purchase took over a month to arrive and I resorted to buying replacements online from John Lewis (3days). Tip: It would be helpful if Singer provided some advice re sewing posture with purchases. As they don't currently I would strongly recommend users to seek it out before getting started.
