Singer 5625 has 227 built-in stitches including 6 one-step buttonholes and an endless buttonhole. Endless buttonhole lets you sew buttonholes that are of different sizes than the regular ones (this is one feature that you normally find on expensive sewing machines only. So you can consider this one as a premium feature). Do not mistake Singer 5625 for a computerized machine, it is just an electronic sewing machine. So it will miss out on features like sewing start/stop and speed control slider for sewing without the foot pedal.

Stitches can be selected by the touch of a button. The LCD screen will display the selected stitch and its optimal stitch width and length. The screen is not back lit. Drop-in bobbin with clear cover makes changing bobbin an easy job. Singer says that 5625 Stylist II has swift smart threading system for easy threading. The automatic needle threader threads the needle in a snap.

Singer 5625 comes with a built-in block style font and numeric stitches for basic monogramming. Automatic tacking stitch and tie-off function can be used for securing stitches. All the stitches can be adjusted for their stitch width and length. The maximum stitch width is 7mm. Programmable needle up/down is one feature that is essential for quilters. It is handy while pivoting and removing fabric.

Electronic twin needle control button automatically adjusts stitches for twin needle sewing. 13 needle positions can be used for a variety of tasks like inserting zippers, cording and top stitching. Singer 5625 has a built-in memory to save up to 20 different names or small phrases. Stitches can be mirror imaged with the touch of a button. The continuous pattern button lets you sew individual stitches as a pattern.

The machine has pattern override memory, which basically remembers the edited stitch length or width for a particular pattern for future use. Motor can deliver a maximum of 750 stitches/min. Tension and presser foot pressure control are automatic. There is an extra high presser foot lifter for placing bulky fabrics. You can sew circular areas by converting the machine to free arm by removing the accessory storage compartment. It has drop feed for free-motion quilting.

There are 3 LED bulbs to illuminate the work space. 6 segment feed system with box motion ensures consistent stitch quality. A manual thread cutter is provided on the side of the machine, so you don't need to reach out for your scissors. Singer 5625 has a unique optimum power control feature that sends additional power while sewing 6-8 layers of fabric. The machine comes with a carry handle. The machine can also be mounted to a sewing cabinet. It comes with a dust cover as well.


No speed control slider and sewing start/stop button, which means sewing without the foot pedal is not an option.
