Features of the 9960 Quantum Stylist
- 600 Built-In Stitches
Fulfill your creative dreams with a large selection of stitches including basic, decorative and stretch stitches for clothing construction, quilting, home décor and crafting.
- 13 Fully Automatic 1-Step Buttonholes
Buttonhole sewing is a simple 1-step process providing reliable results every time. The sides of the buttonholes are sewn in the same direction to prevent gaps in stitching or fabric distortion.
- Exclusive Buttonhole Underplate
The buttonhole foot with underplate sandwiches fabric between a lower plate and the foot to ensure perfect buttonholes on multiple layers of fabric. Effectively, this is like a mini-embroidery hoop in which the machine feeds the attachment, rather than the fabric. It makes creating buttonholes possible in places that conventional buttonhole devices cannot easily reach.
- Automatic Thread Cutter
- Instantly trims the top and bobbin threads at the touch of a button
- Automatic Needle Threader
Sewing's biggest timesaver! This feature makes threading the eye of the needle quick and easy.
- Automatic Stitch Length & Width
Optimal settings for stitch length and width are automatically set, but can be overridden for more personalised sewing.
- Needle Up/Down Button
Pressing this button when the machine is stopped will change the needle position from down to up or from up to down.
- Extension Table Included
The included extension table provides a larger working area, an essential for quilting or when working with a larger project.
- Large Back-Lit LCD Screen with Brightness Control
Provides clear and easy viewing of stitch functions including stitch length, stitch width, tension settings, recommended presser foot, needle up/down position and more! Easily adjust the screen brightness.
- Top Drop-In Bobbin System
The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert the bobbin. The clear cover makes it easy to monitor the bobbin thread supply.
- 5 Built-In Alphabets
Personalize projects by adding a monogram, name or phrase with the built-in block or script style numbers and alphabets, both available in upper and lower case, stitched at 5mm stitch width.
- Mirror Imaging and Elongation Functions
With just a touch of a button, selected stitches can be mirrored imaged, adding even more stitch variety. Press the Elongation button and selected stitches can be made up to 5 times longer
- Electronic Auto Pilot
Unplug the foot control, press the Start button and the machine sews. You are still in complete control over the speed - just slide the Speed Lever to the desired speed.
- 7mm Stitch Width
Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm creating attractive satin and decorative stitches.
- 2 StayBright™ LED Lights
Two lamps illuminate the sewing surface for optimal viewing. The long-lasting bulbs (100,000 hours) are always cool to the touch.
- 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
- 25 Needle Positions
Needle position can be changed for individual projects like inserting zips, cords and topstitching.
- Electronic Twin Needle Settings
Stitches are automatically adjusted for twin needle sewing with just the touch of a button.
- Drop Feed
A conveniently located lever lowers the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms and button sewing.
- 7-Segment Feeding System
This is a specially designed feed system that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This provides for much more accurate feeding of the fabric.
- Box Feed
This is a function that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.
- Six Second Threading
Threading the machine is so easy that you can have the entire machine threaded, from the spool to the needle's eye, in just six seconds
- Automatic Locking Stitch Function
Tie-off decorative and utility stitches with just a push of a button. This feature ensures quality stitching and prevents unraveling.
- Automatic Reverse
Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
- Horizontal Threading
Allows for the thread to feed more evenly reducing poor stitch formation and thread breakage.
- High Sewing Speed
With a maximum sewing speed of 850 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
- Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer.
- Direct Button Stitch Selection
Provides direct access to eight of the most popular stitches including straight, zigzag, blind hem and buttonhole
- Stitch Reference Chart
This chart, located on the upper lid of the machine, allows you to quickly choose the perfect stitch for your project – eliminating tedious screen searching.
- Automatic Tension
This system ensures stable stitch quality, regardless of fabric type. The tension can be adjusted using the tension adjustment buttons, if desired.
- Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
The Presser Foot Lifter has two heights. The second offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot.
- Free Arm
Provides easy access to cuffs, collars, trouser hems and other difficult-to-reach areas
- Center Zigzag Taper
When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the centre, not the left or right. This feature is especially valuable when appliquéing, because it provides a more attractive look when tapering into or out from a point.
- Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control
The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is adjusted automatically. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making adjustments.
- Error Warning
An audible warning alerts the sewer if something is incorrect. The audible warning can be deactivated, if desired. A picture appears on the LCD screen illustrating the probable error.
- Optimum Power Control
A control system that senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric conditions. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple (6-8) layers of fabric.
- DC Motor
Provides instant start and stop with no coasting, for accurate and precise stitch placement
- Snap-On Presser Feet
Easily change snap-on presser feet without use of a screwdriver.
