Built-in Needle Threader!!!!

With strategically placed feed dogs in eight locations, the AT2000D will easily grab and feed your fabric. From slinky knits to denim, the AT2000D will meet the challenges of your sewing projects.
Serge through bigger projects with the wide flat work space. The AirThread 2000D offers ample sewing area with a sewing bed of 4.65” wide in front of the serging needle and 5.59” wide behind the needle. The bed is 9.67” deep as well.
Good Design Award
Good Design Award commends designs recognized as excellent designs that improve the quality of life, industry, and society among all screened items. The AT2000D won for solving the troublesome task of threading the needle by adopting a looper threading mechanism with an original air delivery method.
The Skyline S7 comes with 240 built-in stitches, including 11 one-step buttonholes and 7 alphabets. Quilters and designers will enjoy the AcuFeed™ Flex Layered Fabric Feeding System and the Automatic Presser Foot Lift. The 11 buttonholes can be customized for stitch width, stitch density and buttonhole opening. Along with that, the 7 alphabets also go up to a 9mm width with a revised letter size and shape for increased realism and balance. Navigation through all of these features has become easier with the Skyline S7’s LCD color touchscreen.
