NeverMiss™ Automatic Needle Threader

The NeverMiss™ Automatic Needle Thread does exactly what it promises. It's never been this fast or easy - the Journey threads your needle with little more than the push of a button.

Enhanced Stadium Lighting

Illuminate your fabric with 10 inches around the needle. You'll see every detail of your project. Plus, you won't have to worry about changing bulbs with these long-lasting bright lights.

Larger Throat Space

Comfortably quilt with the Journey's large throat space. 11.25" to the right of the needle leaves room for thick projects and bulky quilts.

Color LCD Touch Screen

Clearly see the details of your designs, quickly set the correct stitch, and change your machine settings on the large, color LCD. This screen measures 7” diagonally and displays up to 260,000 colors so you will know what your designs and stitches really look like before you sew.

Push-Buttons Features

Convenient push-button features give you more freedom to focus on your project. Raise and lower the needle or presser foot, cut threads, reinforce stitches and thread your needle with the push of a button.

Ergonomic, Hands-free Presser Foot Lift

Raise the presser foot by simply moving the attachable lever with your knee. This leaves both of your hands free for extra control on detailed stitches.
