Description

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® Balance Wheel

The Ultrafeed BASIC Package includes the Sailrite® Power Plus® Balance Wheel, which has double the power and is twice the size of a traditional balance wheel 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.

To read more about our oversized balance wheels and how they help power the machine, read our blog, "Size Matters: The Importance of Balance Wheels."

Patented Posi-Pin® Safety Shear

This patented sacrificial pin (Patent #7438009) 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 additional safety feature. As an added perk, it also makes winding bobbins quick and easy.

To learn more about our patented Posi-Pin® Safety Shear, read "Sewing Machine Safety Clutch vs. Posi-Pin Safety Shear."

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.

Conveniently Portable

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.

Sewing Capabilities

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
  • Denim
  • Vinyl
  • Window material
  • Soft leather
  • Drapery material
  • Sailcloth
  • And more!

Am getting use to the machine as I write this. I chose the Sailrite machine because I am an artist and use sewing into some of my creations/paintings. I had a Sailrite years ago and sold it because we moved. Presently I bought another one because of it’s sturdiness.

I am really happy with this product. This is my first sewing machine and the first time I've ever sewn anything, and it was simple to assemble and operate. Any critiques I have are nit-picky and easily dealt with. A big thank you to Sailrite!

The LS-1 is a well built machine. Heavy duty construction which screams durability and reliability. I'm ordering supplies to go with the machine in order to begin a project. I sewed double layer of 8 oz landscape fabric for the garden. The machine handled it with ease!

Exactly what I was looking for.

Great machine, if you’re looking for a very heavy duty compact straight stitch sewing machine you’ve found it. I didn’t try the motor that came with it as I ordered the compact sewing table with workhorse motor at the same time.
