The Quantum Stylist 9960 is a computerised sewing machine from Singer which makes sewing simple and easy by incorporating novel and extremely useful functions.
It has over 1000 stitches in total including lettering. 13 types of one-step buttonhole and precise hems can be achieved by adjusting the needle position in one of 25 positions across its 7 mm wide zig-zag swing. We can go on to say the 9960 measures the fabric thickness being sewn under its presser foot, then instantly adjusts the thread tension to allow only the right amount of thread out for the setting for the chosen stitch... but I'm sure you want to know more about how it sews and not about how technically advance it is.
However, I will go on to say one more thing about the manufacturing processes involved to produce the perfect sewn stitch. For most sewing machines, when it comes to buttonholes, they sew down one leg then sew reverse back down the other leg. Not the case with the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960. It sews each leg of the buttonhole in the same direction, giving perfect alignment for each side.
LCD screen is easy to view even whilst seated. It is angled upwards towards the user's eye. Choose the most used stitches at the touch of a button, or use the arrow key to scroll through the various patterns. Patterns can be edited on-screen and elongated by up to 5 times its original length. Utility, decorative, quilting, heirloom, alphabets can be stored in the machines memory.
Thread ends can be cut automatically at the touch of a button, no need to get the scissors out at the end of each seam. The Singer Quantum Stylist 9960 even has a stitch locking function to tie-off thread ends automatically.
From snipping thread ends to nearly threading its own needles, this computerised sewing machine is a real treat to own and use. Any seamstress or quilt maker would fall in love with it. Included are a very good range of feet, and the extension table comes in to good use when sewing larger type quilts or curtains.

Brigg, UK Review by Sue
I've had my 9960 for just over a week now and I am delighted with it. It sews like a dream, is very quiet and looks lovely. There are lots of useful extras including presser feet, bobbins and machine needles. The abundance of different stitches is mind-blowing and I am not finished going through them all yet. The instruction booklet is good and I can also find lots of useful videos online to help me. This machine is far and above the best one I have ever used and for the price appears to do a lot more than other brands, which is another reason I bought it. Overall I would highly recommend the Singer 9960 sewing machine. (Posted on June 26, 2015)
Croydon,Surrey Review by Maxine
I brought this machine about 3 years ago. I had been wanting a machine for years and finally bit the bullet and decided I wanted to buy the best machine that I could afford. When I first got it I was over the moon, it stitched like a dream, then disaster struck. I couldn't get it to stitch properly for love nor money. I finally gave up and the machine was relegated to the spare bedroom. I didn't dare tell the other half. Then about 18 months ago I was flicking through the TV channels and saw a lady from Singer demonstrating new machines. She was talking about the common problems people have when they call the Singer help line. I listened with interest only to find out that most stitch problems were caused by the threading of the machine, and sometimes the use of poor quality cotton. I was a little sceptical, but I brought some good quality cotton, replaced the cotton in the bobbin and re-threaded the machine and since that day my machine has worked like a dream. It has coped easily with making quilts, bags, hemming curtains, altering a dress and taking up trousers. I now wouldn't be without it. Despite my unhappy start, I would be more than happy to recommend this machine and the words of wisdom from the lovely Sue at Singers helpline! (Posted on May 21, 2015)
Somerset Review by Eileen Satchell
This machine appears to be a good machine. However, I find the manual very poor and I had to phone the Singer help line on one occasion as there was no mention in the manual on how to move the needle to the right. I felt a little better after speaking to the very helpful young lady at Singer, as she also didn't at first know how to achieve what I was seeking. She phoned me back after she had got one of the machines in front of her and talked me through what I was seeking. I cannot find fault with the help line at Singer or the machine, but I wish I hadn't purchased this machine. I'm a Pfaff and Brother devotee, but felt I wanted to try a Singer, but it is not for me.

Essex Review by Maureenmartinred
This machine is a dream of a machine a good allrounder from experienced to a learner matches my old 760 machine that I've had 40 years had other machines and just have not had what I want and expect from my machine this one ticks all the boxes and more . (Posted on October 14, 2013)
Swindon, Wiltshire Review by Judethat
Fabulous machine and realise how much I have missed a Singer. So much more control with the feet, more useful functions, stitches, auto thread cutter, lots of feet that are really easy to use. so many more functions and the one step buttonhole is fantastic. Really good machine, lots to learn yet though. Really good service from singer machines and fast delivery. Could not be happier with purchase. (Posted on April 20, 2012)
Rotherham, South Yorkshire Review by Gemma
After carefull consideration and much debate over which sewing machine i wanted, I finally chose the Singer 9960. Then came the hard part...where to buy it from. I phoned Singer directly to ask if they could recommend a seller for their machines and they pointed me in the direction of this company. I had 5* customer service from the start and the delivery was super fast. The machine itself is an absolute pleasure to work with, from doing anything as simple as turning a hem up to more intricate creative craft work. All in all a wonderful machine ordered from a wonderful company. I would recommend to anyone! (Posted on November 10, 2011)

Kyle of Lochalsh Review by Catherine
Fantastic machine. Loads of features and plenty of accessories. Very simple to operate and it comes with an easy to follow handbook.
Also this company is one of the easiest companies to deal with that I have come across. Not only do you get very prompt delivery but they also keep you informed of your order status. Superb! (Posted on October 7, 2010)
