The Sailrite® Ultrafeed® LS-1 BASIC Sewing Machine package features our powerful, portable, straight stitch walking foot sewing machine. This package is perfect for first-time sewers who are looking for an easily portable, heavy-duty machine, for boat owners looking to sew heavy canvas or vinyl on their boat, or for a home sewer wanting a machine that can handle heavy sewing assemblies. Built with the toughest, most dependable parts, the Ultrafeed easily sews through heavy materials like heavy canvas, denim, leather and upholstery fabrics, but it’s also versatile enough to sew through lighter home fabrics with ease. Its sewing capabilities have been proven in up to 10 layers of heavy canvas and eight layers of Dacron sailcloth.
The Ultrafeed LS-1 BASIC Package features the Ultrafeed LS-1 Sewing Machine in the sturdy Ultrafeed® Wooden Base and the EZ Set™ Stitch Length Plate, which comes preinstalled on the machine.
Power Plus® Flywheel
The Ultrafeed BASIC Package includes the Sailrite® Power Plus® Flywheel, which has double the power and is twice the size of a traditional flywheel for more slow speed power and control. It enables you to sew heavy and thick assemblies at comfortably slow speeds for precise stitching. Powering the machine is a 110V AC motor (6,600 rpm at 1.5 amps) and a cogged belt and pulley drive system. Operate using the fully grounded, variable speed, electronic foot control.

Patented Posi-Pin® Clutching System
Sailrite’s patented Posi-Pin Clutching System (Patent #7438009) provides 100% power transfer from the motor to the upper drive shaft, ultimately powering the needle. As one of the most important features on our Ultrafeed Sewing Machines, this unique system eliminates clutch slippage, which robs sewing machines of power when sewing heavy, hard-to-penetrate fabrics. It also makes winding bobbins quick and easy. Pulling the pin out makes the machine stop working, which is an excellent added safety feature. When coupled with Sailrite’s special balance wheel with cogged timing belt, our machines outperform all others on the market.

Simple, Straightforward Sewing
The mechanical walking presser foot works with the feed dog to pull thick layers of fabric through the machine at consistent speeds for symmetrical stitching. The EZ Set™ Stitch Length Plate helps to keep stitch length consistent when switching from forward to reverse. Switching directions is made quick and easy by the spring-loaded stitch length lever. Easily maintain your seam allowances with 1/4-inch, 1/2-inch, 3/4-inch and 1-inch markings right on the needle plate.
The presser foot features a built-in welting tunnel for sewing piping and the needle is offset to the right in the presser foot, so you can sew zippers without changing the foot.

The Ultrafeed is built to be tough enough to go wherever you go. Move it around your home, or take it in your boat or RV! The Ultrafeed Wooden Base is a solid, self-supporting MDF (medium-density fiberboard) base with built-in handholds on either side to make your machine easy to carry.
The Ultrafeed features a 3/8-inch-high foot lift and a best-in-class needle bar stroke, so you can sew virtually anything you can fit underneath the foot. The Ultrafeed can be easily adjusted to sew lighter weight home décor fabric, too, so it can be your go-to machine for numerous projects. Set the variable stitch length up to 6mm and you’re ready to go. The Ultrafeed will easily sew through fabrics like:
- Heavy canvas
- Upholstery fabrics
- Window material
- Soft leather
- Drapery material
- And more!
