  • 960+ Built-In Stitches with Stitch Reference Chart
  • 10 Essential, 21 Stretch, 919 Decorative, 13 Buttonholes, 6 Styles of Alphabets & Numerals. This chart located on the upper lid of the machine allows you to quickly see all of the 960+ built-in stitches and choose the perfect stitch for your project.

  • With just a touch of a button select stitches can be mirror imaged, adding even more stitch variety. Select the elongation button and a variety of stitches can be made two to five times longer. Control the exact look of a stitch pattern with the stitch editing capabilities. 
  • Drop Feed 
  • Lower the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms and for sewing on buttons. 
  • 13 Fully Automatic Perfectly Sized Built-In Buttonhole Styles with Exclusive Buttonhole Underplate
  • Buttonhole sewing is a fully automatic one-step simple 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. The Exclusive Buttonhole Foot with Underplate sandwiches fabric between lower plate and foot to ensure perfect buttonholes on multiple layers of fabric.
  • Easy-to-Load Top Drop-In Bobbin System with Clear Cover
  • The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert the bobbin. The clear cover makes it convenient to monitor the bobbin thread supply.
  • Free Arm 
  • The removable free arm provides easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas.
  • Automatic Electronic Thread Trimmer
  • Press the thread cutter button and the machine automatically trims threads when you are done sewing.
  • Drop Feed with Box Feed Motion
  • Lower the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms and for sewing buttons. The feed dogs move in a box motion ensuring perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process. 
  • Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure
  • Adjustable presser foot pressure allows you to adjust the amount of pressure exerted on your fabric while sewing. The pressure is optimally pre-set, but feel free to override those settings for high pile fabrics or delicate fabrics like chiffon.
  • Stitch Memory with Editing
  • Program up to 60 characters into the sewing machine’s memory for easy retrieval, accessible even after the sewing machine has been turned off. Edit the stitches according to length, width, mirroring and elongation! 
  • Automatic Stitch Length & Width. 
  • All stitches are automatically set with the optimum stitch length and width settings. Feel free to override these settings for ultimate creativity!  
  • 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 Control lever to the desired maximum speed.  
  • 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. 
  • Automatic Bobbin Winding
  • Follow the numbered diagram printed on the sewing machine and your bobbin is full in no time! The needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer because the needle won’t move up and down. The bobbin will automatically stop turning when the bobbin is completely filled. Never worry about overfilling a bobbin again. 
  • Slow Sewing Speed Button Option
  • Allows you to sew at slower speeds for intricate work. 
  • 7mm Stitch Width
  • Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm creating attractive satin and decorative stitches.
  • High Sewing Speed
  • With a maximum sewing speed of 850 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
  • 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. An auxiliary spool pin is included for vertical threading, if desired. 
  • 25 Needle Positions
  • Needle position can be changed for individual projects like inserting zippers or cording and topstitching.
  • Automatic Tension
  • This system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever type of fabric is being sewn. 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.
  • 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 (six to eight) layers of fabric. 
  • DC Motor
  • Provides instant start up and stop with no casting, for accurate and precise stitch placement.
  • Heavy Duty Metal Frame
  • The internal skeleton of the sewing machine is constructed of heavy duty metal that holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing and overall durability.
  • Warranty
  • Limited 25-year warranty including 5 years on electronic components and 1 year on adjustments.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

I have more than one Singer machine, very loyal to the brand. I received this model, took it out of the box and started making projects, some that I haven't tackled before, No problem with it, I read some of the reviews while shopping around, and almost had second thoughts about buying, but glad I went with my gut feeling and with my previews experience with the brand, Great Buy, you will get your moneys worth, I recommend, that like with anything else, take the time to read the manual and get to know your new machine and enjoy the experience.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

Overall, I really love this machine. It is easy to use and very quite for those of us that like to sew late a night. ;)

My needle position was off to the left of the center mark. When I lined up with the 1/2" seam mark it sews a 5/8" seam allowance. Singer has ZERO warranty repair centers in the Denver area, so I had to pay to get it repaired locally.

You may want to search for a local Singer warranty repair center and call them before you purchase a Singer machine. Otherwise, you'll be required to pay for shipping cost and wait several weeks for your machine to be repaired. Sometimes these shipping cost add up to 50% of the price you paid for your new machine. That is why it is important to know these facts before making your purchase.

The Best Singer Sewing Machine Yet!

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Can't Think Of Anything That I Don't Like About The Quantum Stylist 9985

This machine is my favorite singer yet. I have owned others but this quantum 9985 is by far my favorite. The stitch quality, ease of use, and touch screen are just some of the reasons I really like it. It is so quiet and well built, but most of all, I like the way it stitches....Plus there are numerous decorative stitches that stitch out beautifully. Lots of extra feet too! Love it!!!
