  • 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 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 personalized sewing.
  • Presser Foot Sensor
  • Ensures the presser foot is in the proper position for an easy start. The machine will not begin to sew if the presser foot is raised, reducing the chance of thread bunching.
  • 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.
  • 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 name or phrase with the multiple lettering and number styles 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
  • 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 zippers, 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, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas
  • Center Zigzag Taper
  • When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, 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.
  • On Board Storage
  • The accessories are conveniently stored in the removable sewing table, providing easy access to accessories.

Good Value, Great Features, High Quality

This baby is loaded with all the bells and whistles! Sooo many things it can do. There is a learning curve for anyone who buys this machine. It's not like my 1960's singer at all. Please, spend lots of time practice with it. Get to know it, aquire love with it before you jump into major projects. Yes it can sew super fast and handle several layers, but why push your machine to the breaking point? Work it in, find out how it handles each material, foot, needle, speed. You go in gun-hoe it will give you problems. Once you find these things out you can prep yourself for success.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Many Additional Accessories

I am 66 years old and have taught sewing classes on high end machines in the $3,000 to $6,000 range. I was so pleased to see this Singer machine offered at such a wonderful value. It does everything and more that my older high end machines did. My new machine runs quietly and smoothly. It is beautiful to look at and has so many lovely stitches. I have had my machine for 10 days and I am on the final stages of a puff or biscuit quilt.It has been so easy to do on this machine, the thread cutter is wonderful and also the reverse button that will take one stitch to get me back to where I need to be is very helpful on this particular project. The box feed system seems to work really great to keep my quilt pieces from shifting. I think this machine is good for any level of sewer. If you are a beginner, it is easy to use but the sky is the limit on how far you could grow with this machine. For the experienced sewer, it has everything you could want. I do not think that you should have to spend thousands of dollars to get a great machine and Singer has proven that to me once again. I am thrilled with my new machine.

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

The Quantum Stylist 9980 is my first electronic sewing machine, and I have not been disappointed. I especially appreciate the ease of changing the thread and bobbin as well as the thread cutter and easy-clip presser feet that ensure each task produces accurate results. The buttonholes are amazing and truly one-touch, a selling point for this model is that is has a buttonhole that is rounded on both ends, this produces a very compact, minimalist buttonhole. As a male sewer, the blue (non-pink) color of the chassis as well as its weight and solid construction, along with the substantial, fold-away carrying handle on top make this an appealing tool to work with. While I appreciate the myriad stitching that is available, it would be helpful if the name and intended use of each stitch were in the manual instead of having to hunt for it on the website reference (the manual simply groups stitches 21-100 as decorative). Nevertheless, this sewing machine produces accurate, repeatable results as expected with enough variations to its functionality (mirroring, elongation) that it gives one not only confidence but a sense of adventure in terms of finding creative uses for all of its features.
