The Kenmore 16231 Sewing Machine is a mechanical device that includes some simple automation, such as an automatic start/stop button and speed control. Many sewers, learners especially, love these two features because both offer more control over the sewing experience.
The 16231 is also a beautiful machine with soft green features, and it's firmly built -- with an inner frame made of die-cast metal it won't bounce around or "walk-off" the table while you're sewing. It's quiet and very easy to use as well. See Kenmore 385.1884180 and 385.1684180 Sewing Machine Manual Download here.
The Kenmore 385.1884180 and 385.1684180 machines come with a decent selection of built-in stitches: 31 in total and a one-step, one-style buttonhole stitch. Use the Stitch length and width lever to alter and tailor stitch patterns to offer you 90 stitch roles or variations in all.
The stitch arrangements are also color-coded, which makes categorizing and selecting them a cinch:
Green: Geometric decorative stitches
Red: Straight, Zigzag, and Utility stitches
Gold: Stretch stitches
Blue: Built-in buttonhole
The oversized Stitch Selection Dial is accessibly located on the side of the machine. Just turn it to select any stitch. Get Kenmore 385.1884180 and 385.1684180 Sewing Machine Manual Download to learn more about these stitch patterns

Fabric feeding is essential to any sewing job. Superior fabric feeding helps to make smooth, even stitches with no snags or puckers. Kenmore 16231 comes with a 7-Piece Feed Dog System, an innovative feeding system that holds the fabric above the feed dogs in 7 places. As fabric moves along during sewing, it "feeds" through smoothly and evenly to produce stitches that are really nice quality and look professional.
