|What allan500 likes about this machine|
The path that led me to purchasing a Singer Quantum Stylist 9960 was all about buttonholes. I own several old machines that I like very much, a Singer 15-91 at the top of the heap. But I do not use buttonhole attachments well. Other people do, but I donít. I depended on a Brother CS6000i for making buttonholes, but one day it stopped making buttonholes. Since I never loved that Brother, I opted to get a new machine rather than get it fixed.
I researched and researched until I was sick of reading about sewing machines. I, like many, had been off of Singer because of the quality different between its older machines and its new machines. But one Singer machine got consistently good reviews, the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960. After having owned it for a week, I concur, the machine is a winner.
The machine is, I believe, made by Juki. The reason I say that is because it has Jukiís box-feed system and Juki features like auto pin and foot leveling when sewing heavy fabrics.
It does buttonholes very wellóin more styles than I will every use. It has proper weight. Not too heavy, and not too light. I very much dislike light machines. After all, a machine is a machine and ought not slip and slide while one is working with it.
It has every stitch I need (600 or so, depending on how you count) and it comes with all the feet I need, including a walking foot. Stiches are formed well. The one press thread cutter that cuts both threads is to die for. It is rather quiet, although not as quiet as my Swiss-watch-like Singer 15-91. Actually the Quantum is probably not louder, but doesnít have the 15-91s pleasant click-click sound.
My experience with the machine so far has all been positive. It has more features that I could have thought up had I been asked. It sews well with as little fuss as one can rightly expect.
