600 Stitch Applications
Fulfill your creative dreams with a large selection of stitches including basic, decorative and stretch stitches for fashion, quilting, home decor and crafting.
13 Built-in Perfectly Sized Buttonhole Styles
Buttonhole sewing is a simple 1-step process providing reliable results every time. Just place the button in the buttonhole foot and the machine sews a buttonhole perfectly sized for that button.
One Touch Stitch Selection
Stitches are displayed on the machine’s front panel. Simply touch the button for the stitch you want and start sewing. Also, the eight most commonly used stitches are conveniently located on the front of the machine and available with a direct stitch selection.
Built-In Needle Threader
Effortless threading of the needle for a faster start.
Easy-to-Load Top Drop-In Bobbin System with Clear Cover
The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert. The clear cover makes it easy to monitor the bobbin thread supply.
The included extension table provides a larger working area, essential for quilting or when working with larger projects.
Electronic Twin Needle Settings
For stitches other than the straight stitch, this function reduces stitch width for sewing with a twin needle so the needles clear the presser foot while sewing.
Heavy Duty Metal Frame
The internal skeleton of the sewing machine is constructed of heavy duty metal. This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing and overall durability.
Singer Quantum Stylist 9960: Features
This sewing machine includes 600 different types of stitch patterns and has an adjustable speed setting that can reach up to 850 stitches per minute. With such a high stitch-per-minute speed, you can sew your project quickly and efficiently, and the number of stitch patterns is truly impressive. It’s more than double the next highest stitch variety on the units in our sewing machine reviews.
This heavy-duty sewing machine includes several features that help with efficiency. With an automatic thread cutter, needle threader, and tension control, you can sew without having to stop and cut the thread or adjust the tension. The sewing machine also has an automatic bobbin winder that you can use before each project. It quickly winds your bobbin in the thread you need for your project.
The Singer 9960 has several features that help you create clothing. For attaching buttons, you can choose from 13 different buttonhole styles. You can attach the button using a one-step operation that quickly attaches any button style. The sewing machine has twin needle capabilities. When you make clothes, you can attach a twin needle to the machine to create uniform hemlines. You also can manually adjust the stitch width and length on your projects to fit the style of the item you are creating.
This digital sewing machine is not intended to be portable. It has wide dimensions and weighs 20 pounds, which makes it the heaviest machine in our comparison. The throat of the Singer sewing machine is 6.5 inches, which is relatively small for quilting and other large projects. It features an LCD computer screen that displays the stitch pattern as well as the width and length of the stitch. The screen also displays information about your project and error messages when the machine is being used incorrectly.
Several design features on the sewing machine help you while you sew. Rather than only controlling the machine by a foot controller, like most machines, the Singer 9960 features a start and stop button as well. When you are using the hand controls, you can adjust the speed of the stitching on the machine to match your speed.
The machine has several small features that make your sewing projects easier, including a drop-in bobbin. You simply place the bobbin in the machine and leave some of the thread outside of the casing. It is much easier to place than a standard bobbin because you can see the thread. The sewing machine also features a sewing light to help you see in better in low-lit areas.
Additionally, you can adjust the machine for free-arm sewing by removing part of the table. By doing so, you can sew hard-to-reach areas or maneuver difficult fabric easily. The sewing machine also has adjustable feed dogs so that you can drop them and sew in any direction without restrictions. This feature is particularly important for quilting. The sewing machine also comes with an extension table for projects that require more space, such as quilting.
Singer Quantum Stylist 9960: Design
While the ease of use makes this the best sewing machine for beginners, the wide assortment of accessories helps you complete more advanced sewing projects too. The sewing machine includes 19 different presser feet and is compatible with many more. It also includes a needle set with several different sizes. The smaller needles work better on delicate fabric, while the larger needles help with thick or difficult fabric. You also can use the needle set as replacement needles.
In addition to the feet and needles, the sewing machine comes with standard sewing tools. It includes a seam ripper, several spool caps, screwdrivers and a cleaning brush. Both the screwdrivers and cleaning brush help with maintenance and prolong the life of your machine.
The sewing machine also includes a dust cover and a transportation case to protect it from lint and dust that can damage the mechanical parts of the machine.
