Adjustable position needle and needle up/down. Every thing beyond that is a perk.

1) When I select the needle down position and stop, the foot automatically lifts just a bit so that you can pivot the fabric. Not sure what this is called. 2) Needle Threader 3)drop in bobbin.

Needle up/down, needle threader and Pfaff's IDT. (Wish I had auto-cut for the thread. I have it on my mega quilter and love it!)
