This review is from: SINGER 4452 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine (Kitchen) We purchased this machine to repair our boat cover, as my lightweight sewing machine was not up to the task. This machine is small, about the size of a regular sewing machine and does not come with a case. An instruction sheet with threading instructions and a pack of accessories is also included. This Singer Heavy Duty Sewing Machine had no trouble stitching thick fabric, without hesitation. The motor did not seem to be taxed at all and just breezed through the job. Impressive.
