Computerized One-Touch Needle Plate
Changing out your needle plate has never been easier! By simply pressing a button on your screen, the needle plate automatically lifts up for easy removal.

And, since the M8 comes with three needle plates, changing them out for the proper application is a breeze.
SFS-i, Intelligent Feed System
