Singer SE340 Review

Doyousew Recommendation Level: HIGH

Singer SE340 is very comparable to the equipment we previously assessed, the Singer SE300 The maker needs a substantial financial investment, so you require to be absolutely certain regarding its high quality. SE340 was released in the later component of 2015 as well as it received fairly an excellent action. In fact this equipment presently sets you back a fair bit a lot more than the SE300 version. Provided the truth that both SE300 and also SE340 have identical functions, the question is what makes the later on a lot more pricey? The response hinges on the accessories that you get with Singer SE 340. With SE340 you will obtain a needlework digitizing software application which enables you to produce your very own layouts.

Singer SE340 is an advanced embroidery and embroidery combo equipment. In terms of appearances, it is just ordinary awesome. Definitely it is one of one of the most attractive embroidery equipment I have actually ever before discovered. As much as stitching stitches are concerned, it includes 250 built-in sewing stitches. The stitches consist of 10 One Touch Basic Stitches, 8 Basic Stitches, 7 Stretch Stitches, 118 Attractive Stitches, 14 Fully-Automatic Buttonholes, 18 Satin Stitches, 23 Elongation Stitches, 22 Quilting Stitches and 30 Treasure Stitches.

The biggest advantage of SE340 is the huge embroidery location on the deal. You can conveniently fit huge jobs, many thanks to the 10.25 ″ x 6 ″ needlework location. In enhancement to 10.25 ″ x 6 ″ hoops, the device likewise features a smaller sized 4 ″ x 4 ″ hoop. The thread stress is automatic for optimum outcomes. The automated needle threader is an additional time saver. There is an automated thread cutter as well (reduces the leading and bobbin string with the touch of a switch).

The start/stop switch and sluggish and also fast embroidery rate buttons assists you to sew without using the foot pedal. The slow rate is actually slow-moving, believe me. This will certainly come in handy for inexperienced drains. Singer SE340 can stitch at an optimal speed of 800 stitches/min and also embroider at a maximum rate of 700 stitches/min. The stitching rate is nearly appropriate, particularly when you compare it with cheaper equipment like the Singer 4423 which has a sewing speed of 1,100 stitches/min. The embroider speed of 700 stitches/min is actually quick as well as I am quite satisfied with it.

The workspace of SE340 is well lit, many thanks to 3 LED bulbs. The LCD touch display is where you will readjust the embroidery and also needlework settings. SE340 includes 200 embroidery styles plus 6 alphabet alternatives. Out of 200 layouts, just 69 embroidery designs come built-in the equipment. The remaining 131 layouts are available in the USB stick that is consisted of in the box.

Select stitches on Singer SE340 can be mirror imaged. Stitches can likewise be made 3 times longer. The locking stitch buttons allows you to safeguard the stitches. The programmable needle up/down feature essentially functions like an added hand while quilting. The device features a simple to pack leading drop-in bobbin. SE340 has a string break sensing unit which seems a mistake alarm when string breaks or goes out. The maker has an independent bobbin winding system too.

SE340 has 29 needle placements as well as twin needle control. For free-motion quilting, drop feed is also offered. The added high presser foot lifter enables additional clearance for large materials. The Presser foot sensor makes certain the presser foot remains in the correct position. The built-in bring manage makes it portable. The device is somewhat on the larger side, weighing around 18.6 pounds. The equipment can be placed right into a stitching cabinet.

As I have said previously, the best aspect of Singer SE340 is the software that includes it. You can obtain live software updates in addition to advanced editing and enhancing software applications like AutoPunch, HyperFont as well as editing components (which when bought independently will set you back more). The maker additionally comes with 10 snap-on presser feet.

Functionality

Singer SE340 is a maker that consists of a steep discovering curve (it needs to be claimed). You may have to handle bird nesting and string splitting initially, especially if you are not experienced. Once you obtain the threading as well as tension right, the machine will certainly function perfectly. Switch over from embroidery to stitching as well as vice versa must be done exactly as clarified in the customer guidebook, or else you might not get expected results (it might annoy you).

One touch switches for frequently utilized stitches is a great enhancement from Singer. You don’t need to get in the stitch number every time you need to utilize them. The stitch top quality on SE340 is excellent, specifically the needlework styles. Picking styles that come on USB stick is extremely easy. Most of us are used to USB sticks on computer systems, it is not much various right here too. The LCD touch display is receptive as well as very easy to check out.

Digitizing your very own designs using the consisted of software program will call for a great deal of patience. You need to be prepared to play with it. Yet as soon as you manage to obtain the layouts sewed, there is no much better feeling in the world. I am really amazed with the high quality of styles (specifically the detailing). The maker is very peaceful while running.

The build quality of Singer SE340 is fairly great. There is no overdose of plastic. The reality that the device is heavy means that there is even more metal inside (which is an advantage).

Limitations

There is no multihooping ability, which suggests you won’t be able to stitch designs bigger than the available embroidery location. Singer might have included this, particularly when makers like Singer Futura XL-400 which is almost half the price of this one, features multihooping.

Some customers have reported issues with the reverse stitching switch. But I really did not experience any type of such problems.

The hoops can have been constructed from much better top quality material (it looks flimsy).

The software programs are not Mac suitable. So Apple individuals will certainly need to go somewhere else. I really hope Singer will turn out Apple compatible software programs in the future.

Pros

  • Quality stitches
  • Silent operation
  • Range of features
  • Large needlework locations
  • Advanced editing choices

Cons

  • No multihooping
  • Not suitable with Apple items
  • Documented niggles

Is It Worth Buying?

As far as stitch top quality and also features are considered, Singer SE340 is a good choice. Nonetheless, the device is not without restrictions.
