SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist 600-Stitch Computerized Sewing Machine Reviews
Reviews By H. Erickson-Sander : Date September 2, 2011
Okay, here's the thing. I've spent the last several years happily sewing along with my Huskystar E20 by Husqvarna. It's a basic machine, but it got the job done. Really, I was happy, but I had no idea what I was missing out on. When I was recently upgraded to this Singer Quantum Stylist machine, I was at first skeptical of the computerized side of it and slightly concerned it would be too much machine for me: a beginner seamstress.
When the machine arrived I couldn't wait to try it out, I opened it immediately and carefully read through the manual (which is surprisingly simple for a machine with so many features). I wound the bobbin and threaded the machine while reading the instructions on how to do so very carefully - it's just a tad different than your basic machine where the spool sits on top. Once I got all set up with some brown thread and a white dish towel to practice on, I slowly pushed down on the pedal and - WOW.
"It sews like magic!!!" I exclaimed, and my husband laughed. And then I went crazy trying out all the features that were new to me, since I formerly only owned a very basic machine. I was shocked at how smoothly and quietly this Singer machine runs. The computerization of it is simple and easy to get the hang of.
Since receiving the machine a few weeks ago now I've completed more sewing projects than I've ever done in my life. This machine is wonderful and makes me feel more like a professional than a beginner (which I am!) I've always used sewing machines, I grew up doing projects on my mom's now-vintage Singer, but I've never really gotten into it. Now with this machine, I'm always excited for that next new project. I love sewing!!! WITH my SINGER, that is.
I understand that there are many machines on the market with the same or at least similar features, this isn't the only machine that can wow a beginner who's just moving up from the most basic machine. BUT, if you are someone looking to invest in a nicer machine with more features, I can definitely recommend THIS one! And if you're someone like I *used* to be, who doesn't think you NEED a fancy machine and that your basic one is just fine - think again. I'm sold!
My favorite part is that even through all the projects I've completed already, I haven't had this machine jam at all. Not. Even. Once. This is new to me.

First of all, I wanted to point out that this machine comes with the value added accessory package as well as the hard case and extension table. You will see that advertised on other websites, but the Amazon description does not state it. So it was a very pleasant surprise to open the box and see those accessories included.
As for the machine, you really could not get a better deal for your money. I'll admit, I've been pretty leery of Singer in the past few years and have several sewing machines. I'm actually replacing a computerized Kenmore with this one and know that I made an excellent choice. The features on this machine are outstanding. The fact it has an automatic thread cutter was enough to get me to buy this. The stitch quality is excellent and the monograms come out perfect. Selecting your stitches is as easy and adjusts the stitch length and width along with tension, automatically. But you do have the choice to set those yourself as well and that is not hard to do. Another feature that is not mentioned is the fact the machine has dual lighting on the bed. So not only is the area where the presser foot lit, but also the bed of the machine. It lights up the whole area very well. You normally find this only on high end machines.
For $329, you just can't go wrong.

PROS -- Automatic thread tension, thread cutting, stitch lock-down. Has lots of stitch patterns including decorative and alphabets, many accessories and presser feet included, foot-pedal not required (good for disabled), no lubrication needed.
CONS -- No automatic bobbin winding or threading. Numerous letters and decorative stitches may be bloatware, depending on your sewing needs; confusing stitch terminology in the manual. There is no memory to save sequences of character/decorative stitches which you define.
