    Yes, IF you have the zig zag cam for it. Here's a great link for comparing the 400 series. http://blog.sew-classic.com/2008/10/...ne-review.aspx

    A Singer 403 is my go to machine - I love the simplicity - a post I made a while back - the same differences would apply to a Singer 401 & a Singer 403:

    You need the "0" cam, the 403 & 503 have no cam stack and relies solely on cams for anything beyond a straight stitch.
