The sewing machine shapes up around a heavy metal frame. The machine is overall solid but very heavy, about 8.4-Kg. Still, the overall design is compact, and it looks portable, too.

For review purpose, I often get to use a sewing machine. I am still a beginner in using a sewing machine although. With the Singer C440 Legacy, however, I could sew like a pro user.
I sew a complicated design on my shirt pocket with instructor assistance. She guided me on how to make the machine ready to sew my desired design on my shirt pocket. Later I could do that my own. Singer C440 Legacy is genuinely an advanced sewing machine, which is also very user-friendly.
The instructor helped screw tight the right needle as per my shirt’s fabric quality. Then I threaded the needle and selected my favorite sewing pattern from the 200+ sewing patterns inbuilt on the unit. Next, I entered my website name in a Capital form. That is “GS.” The Machine itself suggested the right presser feet.
After changing to the appropriate presser feet for my design, I placed my shirt under the presser feet and press to the start button. Once the sewing was over, using the thread cutter, I made my shirt free from the sewing machine. In a few seconds, I could create a beautiful logo of my website on my shirt’s pocket. That is the magic of this Singer C440 Legacy sewing machine.
Sewing is not my profession, but I am passionate about sewing technology. Therefore, I am always in search of a perfect sewing machine, which comes with the smart operation.
