    Default Impulse Buy!! SINGER 9960 Quantum

    I checked my email this morning and Amazon had the SINGER 9960 Quantum Stylist 600-Stitch Computerized Sewing Machine for only $249.99
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It says it does 600 stitches, mirror image and elongating, has a dozen feet included (with walking foot!) and a extra large table and cover included. I checked with my friend to see if it was a good deal and she said to go for it! Singer has been bought by Huskvarna, so they are better machines than they were for a few years when everything was cheap Chinese made. Can't wait to get it. It should be delivered next week.
    I went to the local sewing machine dealer today as I am helping out there ( had a job interview, but I think they are more interested in free help). They felt it was not a good purchase. But, if I went through them it would cost $3000 plus to get a machine that does everything this one does and I could NEVER afford that! A couple of my friends bought machines from them recently and spent $2000+ for machines on sale. I don't think they even have 50 stitches and they had to spend big money for a walking foot to go with them, then even more for a lager table. I think I got a great deal and cant wait to get it!

    I bought that machine several months back.. It works great and I love it. It's quiet and has speed control, which I need both. I sew at night, while others sleep. AND I've always had a lead foot!! I know you are gonna love it. The only negative thing I've found is that the alphabet letters can not be enlarged.. But for the money and all the "extras"... it's a dream machine..

    I was up and running in no time at all.

    Heck, I'd buy it for the thread cutters!!! When paper piecing, those come in handy....

    I was curious about the machine so I clicked on the link, and (as is common) Amazon has already bumped the price up to $398... with the original price quoted to be $699. Sounds like you got a great deal at just the right time! Yayy!

    Go to the Singer.com site and see if it is cheaper!!! That's where I got mine for less than Amazon.. It's well worth the money, but not at $699..... we need money for fabric, too!! LOL....

    Congrats on the new machine. I have been looking at the Futura XL 400. Not sure what I am doing right now.
