Our EverSewn Sparrow 25 Sewing Machine Review
The Sparrow 25 sewing machine has a lot of features that users of all levels will appreciate. While none of these features are revolutionary, they are essential to getting a project done quickly and efficiently.
What does this sewing machine offer? Here’s a rundown of features.
The Sparrow 25 has 197 stitches – which is way more than you will ever use or need. But having more stitches does give you more options, whether you’re quilting, making something for your home or just hemming a pair of pants.
These 197 stitches include:
- 68 decorative stitches
- 18 quilting stitches
- 14 utility stitches
- 8 single-step buttonhole stitches
- 2 darning stitches
Decorative stitches include cute options, like flowers, leaves, stars, hearts, scrolls and more.
If you’re a quilter, you’ll love all of these stitches. Of course, you’ll love the quilting stitches, too.
The Sparrow 25 has a vast array of stitches to choose from, and you can select them using the LCD display and respective controls. The LCD display provides you with important information, like the stitch number, width, length and more.
If you’re familiar with the EverSewn machines, you’ll find that the controls and the overall design of the machine is very similar to other models they offer. That makes it easy to get started without having to waste hours trying to figure out how the machine works.
The control buttons underneath the LCD display allow for direct stitch selection and adjustment of the length and width.
The only complaint with the LCD display is that it’s not backlit, so it ca be hard to read in low-light situations.
Adjustable Sewing Speed
The speed at which you sew depends on the fabric and the project itself. The sparrow 25 makes it easy to adjust the speed of the machine with the push of a dial.
The speed dial is located on the front of the machine – right to the top left of the LCD display.
This machine can perform up to 850 stitches per minute for ultra-fast sewing when you need it most.
Knotting, Tension, Needle Controls
The Sparrow 25 also gives you control over the thread tension and the position of the needle. There’s also a knotting function for easy securing of stitches when you start and end a seam.
The upper thread tension control allows you to increase or lower the tension, depending on the stitch, fabric and the project you’re working on.
The needle up/down button makes it easy to start and stop sewing. If you’ve ever accidentally tried to remove or reposition fabric while the needle was down, you know how convenient this feature is.
When you’re ready to go, switch to the needle down position. When you’re done, switch to the needle up position.
This machine also has 15 needle positions, which gives you even more control over the sewing quality and the overall look of your project.
Easy Threading and Bobbin Winding
The machine features an easy-to-follow guide that allows you to thread the machine in seconds. There’s also an easy bobbin system so you can get up and running quickly.
Threading is one of the most time-consuming and frustrating aspects of using a sewing machine.
Built-in LED Light
Even when sewing in a brightly-lit room, it can be hard to see your project because the machine casts a shadow over the fabric.
The Sparrow 25 comes with a built-in LED light that illuminates your project, so you can see what you’re doing at all times.
Whether you’re working in your studio or your low-lit living room, you will never have to worry about not being able to see where your stitches are going.
Like other sewing machines from EverSewn, this model comes with a slew of accessories. And all of these accessories are housed in a neat compartment within the machine’s free arm.
These accessories include:
- Zipper foot
- Zig zag foot
- Overlock foot
- Applique foot
- Blind hem foot
- Sliding buttonhole foot
- Button sewing foot
- Spool caps (large and small)
- Spool felt

You can also purchase additional accessories from the manufacturer, including:
- Cording foot
- Hemmer foot
- Gathering foot
- Quilting foot

These extra accessories allow for even more versatility when working with the Sparrow 25 machine.

The manual also includes helpful information on how to get started sewing with this machine.
EverSewn offers a host of tutorials that will help you get to know your machine and get started sewing.
