Singer 9960 Sewing Machine
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.
