Went Analog With My Sewing Machine…

Posted by

…and bought the Singer Heavy Duty 4452 sewing machine. Before going analog, I had a Pfaff super duper very expensive electronic machine with ALL the bells and whistles. With so many sewing and embroidery stitches, it’s difficult to recall the actual number. I do remember using only a few of them…the straight stitch, the zig-zag stitch, the double stitch, zipper foot with associated zipper stitch features.

The Pfaff worked fine until one day I plugged the cord into the outlet and ‘Poof’ I heard the electrical short! Fearing the worst, I unplugged and replugged the cord, put the sewing machine light on – nothing. The computer display was black with no signs of light. And it could not be repaired as the motherboard had burnt out and the company was not making the model anymore. That was the day I decided I was going analog with many of my small and large home and hobby appliances.

I love, love the Singer Heavy Duty 4452 sewing machine! It reminds me of the Singer I used when I was a teenager.  The 4452 has a heavy-duty metal frame and powerful sounding motor with easy to read adjustable dials and has a nice clean design. It has all the basic and then some stitches and sewing feet I need for sewing clothes, home accessories and mending. Although the invisible zipper foot is not included, it is cheap to buy on your own. You can use the 32 stitches on any fabric, has a high sewing speed and quick and easy to follow threading guides and seam allowance guides. It has a 1 step buttonhole. Plus a walking foot for even feeding is included! Most of all, I love the price!!
