The Skyline S3 is the perfect sister to the S5 and is also jam-packed with powerful features. The Skyline Range has been designed for every type of sewing - every day, home décor, high fashion, patchwork and quilting.  The Skyline S3 has a 310mm long arm (over 12”) with 210mm of work area to the right of the needle and an arm space of 120mm ( 4.7” ) high giving you plenty of room to cope with those bigger projects.  

With a great range of 120 stitches including a choice of 7 styles of buttonholes plus an alphabet, the Skyline S3 offers creativity on every sewing project.  Just flip up the top cover on the machine to view the huge variety of 7mm wide stitch styles available.  The stitch quality is excellent at speeds of up to 820spm whilst the special built-in features will help you cope with almost any sewing challenge. Pivot on corners with the needle up/down feature, control the maximum sewing speed for precision work, trim off threads with the built-in automatic thread cutter, thread the needle automatically … everything you need to make your sewing easier.
