Singer has outdone themselves in terms of giving the customer value for their dollar. Packed with feature upon feature, the Singer 9960 sewing machine should have enough to provide competition for sewing machines going for double the price. Here are some of the features that will be of interest to anyone in the market for a new machine:
Metal Frame – This is what gives the machine its steady action, holding everything in alignment and preventing the skips that can prove frustrating for even the most steady-handed sewing professional.
Bed Plate – The 9960 is outfitted with a stainless steel plate designed to let your fabrics move smoothly across the arm, preventing unwanted hangups.
Drop-in Bobbin — Drop-in bobbins are usually easier to use than front loading styles, and this one is no exception. It also makes it easy to watch your thread supply as you complete a task.
The machine also comes with an automatic 4-step buttonhole and 11 stitching options out of the gate, giving the consumer a lot of choice when it comes to their style of sewing.
High among these benefits is the warranty, which gives you 25 years on the head, two years for the electrical components, and 90 days on labor. Also among the additional features:
• A free arm gives you access options you don’t have with a fixed arm
• Singer provides on board storage in the bed, putting any accessories you need at arm’s length
• Change the needle position depending on your approach to a project
• The machine advertises for 1,100 stitches per minute, making it faster than most entry-level machines on the market.
The features enumerated thus far would be enough to place the Singer 9960 sewing machine fairly high in the rankings of sewing machine reviews.
