It is very flexible and versatile, as well, because of the incalculable features that it has. The SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist 600-stitch computerized sewing machine also gives error warnings audibly.

It automatically does this job for you. More importantly, the lights used by this sewing machine are much brighter than the ones from other models of sewing machines that I have tried before.

Pros of the SINGER Quantum Stylist 9960

SINGER 9960 Quantum StylistThis SINGER Quantum Stylist 9960 sewing machine works even without using the foot pedal which makes it ideal even for people with leg and arm problems. It comes with all the accessories that you need to sew almost all types of fabric. The 600 built-in stitches that it offers really make it perfect for all sewing styles, may it be that you are going for the basic or decorative. This sewing machine also has a thread-cutter. Other than that, any person will really find this Singer sewing machine really magical because you can set it to sew by itself. I guess, “magical” is the only word that can describe this genius from Singer.

The SINGER Quantum Stylist 9960 allows me to work in low-light conditions because its working area is not just lit up by one LED bulb. Rather, it’s lit up by two LED bulbs that are bright enough to make go through a whole night of sewing. Singer was also generous enough to equip this machine with 13 buttonhole designs and I hardly noticed it until I started looking for buttonhole designs. The company also included a lot of accessories in the package and you have to know that it has a total of 18 extra presser feet. I just find it amazing that Singer is so generous this time with this machine.

Cons

SINGER 9960The SINGER Quantum Stylist 9960 weighs 26 pounds and obviously, that does not make it a handy sewing machine. Just like any other sewing machine packages that I have tried, its needles, too, are not that strong. You really have to get better needles if you wish to work with thicker fabrics. This sewing machine may not be that good for those who are just starting to learn how to sew. Well, it is easy to use but it has too many features. These will all just make you feel confused, especially if you are going to look at the number of stitch patterns that it has.

Aside from being a heavy and too sturdy machine, it also has a very boring design. I’m a bubbly type of person and I enjoy colorful things. But, I might just find myself waking up from a sewing machine table because it has a very boring color combination. I hate to mention this too, but the price is too expensive and is as uninteresting as it looks.

Is this SINGER Sewing Machine Easy to Operate?

Despite the number of features that SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist 600-Stitch computerized sewing machine has, I can still say that it is easy to operate. Well, that is, of course, if you have already read the manual. Also, I think that its parts are all properly labeled. Even beginners will find the functions of this machine very simple to understand.

My Personal Experience with the SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist Computerized Sewing Machine

SINGER Quantum 9960I love quilting using this machine. My mom and I have made two quilts, repaired two others and created three pillow cases using the SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist 600-Stitch computerized sewing machine that I bought two and a half months ago. It really surprises me how it works on heavy projects smoothly. This might sound ridiculous but when I saw how it sewed parts of our pillow cases without me controlling it, I literally screamed and called my mom to come witness it with me. I showed it to Trisha, too, when she got home from school and she asked me about the secret to that magic trick. Other than being entertaining, my mom loves using this, as well, because it still allows her to sew effortlessly even with her aching leg muscles.

Tips for Using this SINGER Computerized Sewing Machine

To get rid of all the questions running in your mind, begin by reading the manual. It is not as complicated to operate as you think it is. Also, if you wish to work on heavy fabrics or thicker layers of cloth, do not use the needles included in the package.

Is the SINGER 9960 a Good Sewing Machine to Buy?

My daughter thought that I was pulling off some magic trick when I showed how this sewing machine from Singer worked. So, my answer to this is a big “yes”. Kidding aside, I think this sewing machine is an excellent buy. Its price may appear higher than other sewing machines in the market today. However, you should understand that the SINGER Quantum Stylist 9960 sewing machine is not really a basic sewing machine. Once you experience using it, you will feel that the amount that you will be spending is not that enough for its excellence.

Verdict

Once again, Singer has impressed me with another innovative sewing machine. It can work as basic as you want it to be and it can also be the complex sewing machine that you need to come up with professional-looking finished products. Whether you are an expert who wants to invest in a cost-efficient sewing machine or a newbie who just wants to explore his new hobby, you will definitely love the SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist 600-Stitch Computerized Sewing Machine.
