Singer 160 Limited Edition Sewing Machine
Express yourself through sewing! This is a fantastic price for a superb piece of equipment, built to last, for all of your needlecraft projects.
Timeless style and modern innovation from the definitive sewing machine manufacturer: the Singer 160 limited edition model was created to commemorate the brand's 160year anniversary in 2012, taking its cue from past excellence, while introducing new features for the simplest, most easy-to-use machine available.
This storage system has a fold down carry handle with a secure fastening clip to ensure it’s comfortable and easy to carry around.
It contains everything you need for sewing projects there are minimal extras that you will need to purchase to ensure you have all you need to sew with.
A conveniently located lever lowers the feed dogs for free motion embroidery, monograms and button sewing.
Stay Bright LED Lights
Three lamps illuminate the sewing surface for optimal viewing. The long lasting bulbs (100,000 hours) stay cool regardless of how long the machine is being operated.
Vintage Inspired Design
Nostalgic black colour, gold filigree and signature machine curves celebrate SINGER’s anniversary by paying tribute to our historic designs. Features original “bird in flight” design that was featured on many previous SINGER machines over 100 years ago.
Extra High Presser Foot Lifter
Offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers or bulky fabric under the presser foot.
Heavy Duty Metal Frame
The internal rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip free sewing and overall durability.
Provides easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult to reach areas.
Centre Zigzag Taper
When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the centre not the left or right providing a more attractive look when tapering into or out from a point.
7mm Stitch Width
Many stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm for satin and decorative stitches.
This system ensures stable stitch quality regardless of the type of fabric.
Push the conveniently located automatic reverse button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control
The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is adjusted automatically. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making presser foot pressure adjustments.
With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches per minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
7 Segment Feeding Systems
This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This provides for much more accurate feeding of the fabric.
This is a function that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.
The accessories are conveniently stored in the removable storage compartment providing easy access.
Snap On Presser Feet
Easily change snap on presser feet without use of a screwdriver.
Located on the machine for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step of cutting thread with scissors.

Review written by Daisy from Merthyr Tydfil
My overall rating is:out of 5. Excellent
A stunning looking machine that looks the part on my 1920's singer sewing stand. Vintage style with a modern twist. I'm really pleased with my treat to myself purchase that does what it says on the box. Quick delivery. Smooth transaction. (Posted February 4, 2013)
