The Singer Sewing Machine 4622A is a low shank machine. Low shank machines are designed to accommodate a lower presser foot and are generally used with lighter weight fabrics. The low shank design allows for a smaller distance between the needle and the presser foot, which is ideal for working with lightweight or delicate materials. It is important to use the correct type of presser foot and needle for your specific machine, so make sure to choose accessories that are designed for a low shank machine.
