The Sailrite® Ultrafeed® LS-1 Sewing Machine is the best straight-stitch, portable walking foot sewing machine in the industry. This heavy-duty yet portable sewing machine, like all Sailrite® sewing machines, is designed to seamlessly stitch through heavyweight canvas, leather, denim and fabric with ease. In fact, our Ultrafeed machines are the No. 1 tool for canvaswork and are a very popular choice among DIY boaters and upholsterers. Whether you’re looking to embark on a journey of upholstery work or love to work with canvas, the Ultrafeed LS-1 is a great option for working with hard-to-penetrate fabrics.
What makes the Ultrafeed LS-1 different? First and foremost, it offers double the power of other portable sewing machines. Each Ultrafeed LS-1 model comes with the Power Plus® Flywheel to offer twice the power and twice the size of a traditional flywheel to provide you with exceptional slow speed power and control. The Ultrafeed is also designed with Sailrite’s patented Posi-Pin® Clutching System (Patent #7438009), which provides 100% power transfer from the balance wheel to the needle for zero possibility of clutch slippage or loss of power. This is the key to the machine's ability to stay in place while sewing those heavy fabrics. The Ultrafeed LS-1 can easily sew through heavy canvas, upholstery fabrics, vinyl, soft leather, denim and much more. Remember, this is our straight-stitch only model. If you prefer zigzag stitch capability, be sure to view the Ultrafeed LSZ-1.
Ultrafeed Sewing Machines come in three packages to suit your needs and budget: BASIC, PLUS and PREMIUM. The BASIC package is our most affordable option and includes the Power Plus Flywheel, the Ultrafeed wooden base, the EZ Set™ Stitch Length Plate, a thread stand, a toolkit and more.
