The Sailrite® Fabricator® is a sewing machine to build your business on. A full-size industrial, straight stitch sewing machine with a compound walking foot, the Fabricator was designed for canvas, upholstery or awning shops. It’s also a great choice for the serious DIYer. The Fabricator allows for stitch-by-stitch sewing at full power, so you can take your time creating the most precise stitches possible. This best-in-class sewing machine offers high-quality castings and machined parts ensuring it will be a dependable machine for years to come. Turn to the Fabricator for sewing heavy canvas, awning fabrics, upholstery fabrics, denim, soft-medium weight leather and drapery fabrics.
The Workhorse® Servo Motor
The Fabricator is powered by Sailrite’s Workhorse Servo Motor, a 550-watt, 3/4 horsepower motor, that provides a fluid motor to machine power transfer. The Workhorse runs quietly and is both energy saving and durable. It also features fully adjustable speed settings—you can set your top stitching speed and maintain variable speed control. The Workhorse is used in conjunction with a cogged timing belt and our oversized Stitch PRO Balance Wheel. This arrangement is the first of its kind with a servo motor and provides maximum power while maintaining slow-speed sewing control.
Patented Posi-Pin® Safety Shear
For the first time on an industrial machine, the Fabricator is also fitted with Sailrite’s patented Posi-Pin® Safety Shear (Patent #7438009), which protects your machine from damage. If you sew over something you shouldn’t, the pin will break and your machine will stop operating in order to protect the machine. Pulling the pin out also makes the machine stop working, which is an excellent bonus safety feature. Additionally, the Posi-Pin lets you disengage the balance wheel when winding bobbins, reducing wear and tear on the machine's internal components.
The Fabricator offers many extra features to make sewing easier. An extra high foot lift easily fits thicker assemblies, but the Fabricator will also sew thinner assemblies, so it can be your go-to machine for all kinds of projects! Like other industrial sewing machines, the Fabricator features a large rotary hook, which reduces the frequency of bobbin winding, and plenty of underarm space for comfortable sewing, even with larger projects. Quickly raise the presser foot with the built-in knee lift. The laser engraved needle plate features helpful guides for seam allowance. Plus, an attached bobbin winder mechanism lets you wind bobbins without unthreading your machine and allows for bobbin winding while you sew.
Take your sewing to the next level! This Fabricator package comes with some impressive additions for a superior sewing setup. The machine head and oil tray sit in a custom maple butcher block table for a craftsman-inspired look. The gorgeous maple tabletop is custom made for Sailrite in the USA. The black, powder-coated table legs are made from a high-quality steel and are designed for easy height adjustments. Every sewist needs a convenient space for storing notions, which is why we’ve included cutouts on the tabletop for storing bobbins and other notions within easy reach. To top it all off, we’ve included the Sailrite® Industrial Flexible LED Sewing Machine Light for optimal sewing visibility. This sturdy, sleek light has a flexible 26-inch neck so you can position it exactly where you need it. With five watts of power and a lifespan of 50,000 hours, you will have a bright, concentrated beam of light in hard-to-see places. With a strong G-clamp base, this light is easy to install on your work surface and will hold strong. Assembly of the table is required.

A great sewing experience! The machine came well packaged and was easy to put together in an afternoon with clear instructions. The maple top and black powder coating make it easily the most beautiful machine I own, and the adjustable table elements made it easy for me to be comfortable at the machine. The upgrade to the Deluxe version is worth it from my point of view. My only complaint would be that the drawer is hard to mount in a way that doesn't bind. The sheet metal is sharp on the corners and the holes are too small to allow adjustment. Once up and running it has been amazing to use, with highly consistent feeding and never once struggling to stitch through many layers of denim. Going from a single dog feed to the compound walking foot has been the biggest jump in the quality of my sewing by far. If you're working with thick and tough fabrics this will make your life so much easier. The motor is a bit noisy during operation due to being a servo, but isn't what I would call loud by any means and makes up for it with silence when not in motion. The one thing that I would recommend is a slower initial ramp up on the treadle for greater control at low speeds. It's a bit jerky when trying to raise or lower the needle a precise amount (without reaching for the wheel) but otherwise fine when at speed. A needle positioning system would be a welcome addition if ever offered.
Sailrite for makerspace
Purchased for a makerspace that needs great video/manual support for multiple users. None of the others even come close. The machine is simple enough and just works. www.cedarvalleymakers.org
The Best of the Best!
I have been sewing on various machines since the late 60s. This combination of quality head and digital drive is, by far, the best I've ever used. Will it hold up? It should, even under the most demanding use. For me? I don't sew for a living now. It will surely outlive me and provide excellent results for the rest of my time on this planet.
Very nice machine.
Very nice, strong, beautiful stitches. It was very stiff initially but has gradually loosened up with lubrication and usage. The threading is a bit reminiscent of my 1912 Singer Red Eye unlike my Bernina 880 plus, so it took a time or two to get the threading right. I love the machine and am very happy that my husband ordered her for me. "Fab" and I will experience many happy hours of creativity together.
I will not have to buy another machine, this one does what 3 of my other machines combined will do. Love this Fabricator ❤️❤️❤️ I assembled it by myself (60 yr old female) step by step at my own pace and it really was a breeze! And it worked no problem. Sailrite has awesome tutorials and the customer service is the best I’ve come across in years. Top notch. I’m very happy and satisfied with my choice.
I have my dream machine!
This is definitely my dream machine. It hasn't disappointed me yet. I'm really enjoying learning how to use it and adding feet accessories that will continue to take my sewing to the next level. Thanks for making such a high quality product.
Quality product, and excellent customer service.
The Sailrite Deluxe Fabricator is a remarkable and powerful sewing machine, it is truly a pleasure to operate, and I use it daily for many custom sewing projects. The sewing machine table like the machine is well thought out, I am very pleased with my purchase, and Sailrite has the best customer service in the industry.
