can you quilt with this machine

answer 1
You could do smaller quilts and projects, but the throat space is too small for a larger quilt. This machine doesn't include a larger extension table and the quilting feet would be an extra purchase, too. You can drop the feed dogs and adjust the foot pressure on this machine and it has the power to handle heavier fabrics.

The Singer Classic is a great tool to quilt with. With the stronger motor and stainless steel work surface your quilt will smoothly feed through the machine.
Adjustable needle position and presser foot pressure will also help you adapt to each step of the quilting process.
Drop Feed will allow you to do free motion work.
You may want to invest in a Darning/Embroidery foot to simplify the free motion work and a ¼” foot for the actual piecing since neither of these feet come with this machine. You can contact Singer for more info on these at talktous@singerco.com.

Yes. To sew leather you either need the plastic foot for the machine, or a piece of wax paper over the leather on top and bottom so the leather feeds properly. also do not backstitch, leave tails and tie them.

Cotton webbing is also a yes, use a heavier needle and medium stitch length.

Question

Bobbin Discrepancy & Presser Foot / AccessoryIssue

The instruction manual did not come with info on which bobbin to use, so I had to bring the bobbin that came with the machine to the fabric store. The bobbin appeared to be a Class15J, based upon appearance (flat top, size of center hole, two small holes on the top and bottom surfaces, etc). The store clerk agreed. Then I saw on here that this machine is suppose to use the Class 15, however the class 15 bobbin does NOT match what came with the machine. The Class 15 has a smaller center hole, and has a notch coming from the center hole (versus two small holes on the top and bottom surface). Can someone explain this discrepancy? Also, when I went to Singer's website and searched for presser feet and accessories that are compatible with this machine, the search came back with no results....and the Singer Co did not provide a complete answer to the previous poster about specifically which presser feet are compatible. I'd like an answer, since the Singer website is not updated to provide the level of support for this machine versus others. I'm seriously about to return this machine and buy something else.

answer 1
I looked on the Singer website & couldn't find any info either, but I ordered a whole pack of Singer Class 15 bobbins for this machine & they work fine. As for the feet, the snap on feet from my other machine fit this machine too. So any snap on feet should work.

answer 2
The 44S does us a bobbin type 15. The bobbin 15J has a very minor curve to the end discs that will not run smoothly in most machines designed for the 15. The slit at the center hole & and the small holes on the surface will not have any effect to your sewing.
I did take a look at the site and saw that you are correct about the listing of accessories & such not being linked correctly to the 44S page. We will address that now and you will be able to see the different other feet that are available for this machine.

Question

where do i oil it

asked 1 year ago
By

Answers
answer 1
Most new home machines, most of the time, will not need to be oiled. But, if you do a lot of sewing or are working with a lot of flannel, polar fleece, heavy fabrics and the like you may want to put 2 - 3 drops of sewing machine oil in the bobbin case and needle bar area.
If your machine manual does not include instructions on oiling, your machine has been pre-lubricated at the factory and will not need additional lubricating.
We also recommend that you have your machine tuned-up by a qualified SINGER technician every 3 to 4 years to keep it in good running order.
You can contact our Customer Service Dept or visit the www.singerco.com website for more info.

You can oil the machine yourself, but every 3-4 years, Singer recommends taking the machine to a technician to be tuned. The manual that comes with this machine includes instructions on how to oil it.

Yes you can. In most cases you will need to use a knit type fabric when sewing lingerie, when sewing this type of fabric, you will need to use a ballpoint needle. This needle is included in the pack of needles that comes with the machine, if you need to purchase more, they are a style 2045.

will converting the voltage of the machine to 220volts affect any of the working components?

It would be safer to use a voltage converter that would change the voltage of an
electric power source than to change the voltage of a machine. If a proper voltage converter is used, there shouldn't be a problem with using the sewing machine.

Yes it will, as long as you use a denim style 2026 needle and set the stitch length to between 3.5 and 5 to allow for the thickness of the fabric.
