So I was very happy with the machine after that, until I finished a quilt top and went to quilt it with the walking foot. That’s when I discovered a major problem. You cannot use the quilting bar with the walking foot! That is a serious bug. There are other feet that will take the guilting bar, but the walking foot will not. Since the walking foot is recommended for quilting, how are you supposed to maintain an even distance from row to row? I called Singer Customer Care, and they got right back to me. They confirmed that there is no way to use the quilting bar with the walking foot, and there is no other machine with a walking foot to fit the 9960 which has that feature. I have also been unable to find one in the aftermarket. Needless to say, I am not a happy camper. If I’d known that up front, I would never have bought this machine. Quilter beware.
One final problem I have not yet been able to diagnose. It may be user error (me), or it may be some problem with the machine. If you let the bobbin winder fill a bobbin as directed in the instruction manual, you cannot remove the bobbin from the spindle. I have destroyed two bobbins trying to pry them off the spindle. I dont think there is any kind of release lever, but I haven’t checked with Customer Care yet. I’m sufficiently aggravated by this problem, I think I will just get a separate bobbin winder and not bother with Customer Care. I didn’t ding the review another star for this problem, because I’m not sure if it’s my problem or theirs. There was some question initially whether the machine used 15 or 15J bobbins. Various tutorials on the machine from Singer actually give contradictory information. The final word from Customer Care was use 15, not 15J. But now I’m wondering if that was wrong.
Sorry this runs on so long. On the whole it’s a great machine. Clothes and simple stuff are a breeze. But it was advertised as a machine for quilting, and I would say it falls short there.
HOW DARE someone provide used machines to Amazon claiming that they're new? Just UGH!
I'm waiting on the third machine to come in tomorrow, and we will see what happens. This third machine is as far as I'm willing to go without requesting a full refund.
With 960 stitches, it blows the Bernina 550 right out of the water, as it has only 177. Of course it is the quality of the stitch that counts, and the Singer 9985 stitches as beautifully as any machine costing thousands more. I am working my way through the entire catalog of decorative stitches and functions, and have not found anything so far that is less than perfect. What is really unexpected in a machine at this price is the degree of precision you can bring to bear on your decorative stitches. Say you wish to place an outline of decorative arrows around a neckline facing or placket; you can figure out by stitching a sample how many arrows you are getting per inch, and program the machine to run a certain number of arrows and stop, so you can precisely pivot and turn or reproduce a certain line of stitching or whatever. The selection and editing of decorative stitches is simple and intuitive if you are used to doing anything with a computer. Not every stitch can be elongated or made wider to the same extent, but it is easy to tell what you can and cannot do once you see it on the screen. Considering this capability, you really have way more than the 960 stitches advertised. For best quality decorative stitching, I recommend using 40-wt rayon or polyester machine embroidery thread on top and good quality polyester sewing thread to match your item in the bobbin, and attach the transparent satin stitch foot. Tearaway or wash-away stabilizer under your project will make a world of difference. Many stitches can be flipped or rotated, so you could stitch a line of left-facing triangles next to a line of right-facing triangles, or run some lines of straight stitches in between for a cuff or something like that -- in other words, the creative design possibilities get crazy when you have these advanced editing capabilities, and the results are perfect because you can edit precisely where each stitch starts and stops. With this wide selection of stitches, even the simplest garment can be embellished with embroidery to make it look amazing. Stalking Pinterest and Instagram photos of embroidered garments has inspired me to combine multiple rows of decorative stitches with straight stitching around garment edges, repeating thread colors I've used in the embroidered motifs I've done on the Singer Quantum Futura 580 on the front, back, and sleeves. Built-in stitches did not seem to add much to fashion sewing for me in the past because in regular sewing thread, they can look pretty sad, but the options this machine offers combined with the wonderful threads widely available to machine embroiderers make fashion sewing exciting in a whole new way.
The hand quilting-look stitch combined with the walking foot offers a feature usually found on only high-end machines. I was skeptical that a machine at this price point could produce a decent quilting stitch, but by following the directions in the manual and making the necessary tension adjustments, the result is quite impressive.
The manual is pretty good. When I get a new machine, I usually go through the manual page by page and try every stitch, technique, and foot to learn as much as I can and make sure everything is functioning properly. Though I have not completed the learning process yet on this machine due to my eagerness to get to the fun stuff, I have read through the entire manual and it seems that everything I need to know is in there somewhere. The quilting section should not be construed as instruction in quiltmaking by any means, and it is kind of weird that they do not mention the even-feed foot until several pages later, and free-motion quilting and stippling should probably not be attempted based on the instructions here, though of course YouTube videos abound. I find Singer manuals maddening in that the English version is on the left-hand side of the page, with French and Spanish on the right. It would be much more efficient for all users if they would put each language in its own section. The small format of this manual means the print and illustrations are quite small. I'll be looking for the manual at the Singer site so I can read it on a device which enables me to zoom in.
Speaking of instructions, I'd just like to point out that this uses size 15 bobbins, not 15J as the "customers also bought" copy above might indicate. The difference is slight but if you use the wrong bobbins, you will really mess up your shuttle race. When I selected this machine, I assumed it would use 15J bobbins just like my embroidery machine, which would be super convenient. Alas, that is not the case, and it is kind of a pain. You must use Singer brand bobbins, and not cheap copies, which are not the same size. This is kind of a pain, but it's worth it to me to have all these other awesome features I never expected to own. And did I say it's purple?
The Singer 9985 is the perfect companion to my Singer 580 embroidery machine. I am super thrilled that I was able to get such a high quality machine with so many awesome stitches and features for such a low price, with free shipping. Not to be snarky, but a local dealer of the expensive brands does not carry this machine in her store, and I can guess why, though she offered to special order it for me, at the full list price. *snort* If I were trying to sell a comparable machine for almost $5,000, I would not want this one sitting next to it, either. Thanks, amazon!!

Cons: Cannot adjust screen brightness, weight (if you are trying to bring this machine to class or travel with it)
This is my 3rd sewing machine and I tried 7 other sewing machines including brands like Pfaff, Janome, Brothers and I have to say for the price range this is my favorite. i stitched out all 170 utility, decorative and heirloom stitches. Haven't try the button holes yet. They all look great except for stitch # 42 (boat), # 47 (train) and # 44 (house). Stitch # 42 was quite off, while # 47 & 44 was just a little bit off. I believe there is a spot underneath the sewing machine that I can adjust if the stitches are off. Other than that this machine sew beautifully. I mostly sewn on light fabric, so I am yet to find out how it does on heavy fabric. The touch screen is super easy to use and the best part is when I adjust stitch length and width I can see the changes on the screen real time. I really like this feature as it gives me a visual what the stitch will actually looks like. One down side is I cannot adjust the brightness of the touch screen. During the day the screen brightness is not as big of a problem but when I am sewing at night with less light, the screen was so bright that I start seeing a halo after staring at it for a while. Another thing I love about this machine is the weight. I have sewn on some lighter machines in the past. For the lighter weight machine when I sew on high speed the entire machine start jumping and trembling. However I have no problem with this machine at all. Mind you even at top speed this machine does not sew that fast compared to other ones. Lastly I wish that there are more room underneath the bobbin case for me to clean with my brushes like other sewing machines. When you open the bottom plate where the bobbin sits it is surrounded by an enclosed metal frame. There’s pros and cons to that. Pro: you know this is a solid machine. Con: you cannot clean out any lint that is trapped underneath the bobbin case. Over all this is a great machine for beginners and experience sewers. For the price range you are getting an excellent machine that hopefully will inspire many fun projects.
NOTE: I was told by a local Singer dealer that all Singer machines purchased on line only has 1 month warranty instead of the full year manufacture warranty because they cannot guarantee online purchases are not damaged during shipping. If you are getting your machine online might want to check with your local dealer about the warranty.
The machine broke within 3 months of use. The first thing that broke was the automatic threader, which is flimsy, so its pretty obvious it won't last very long.
Then the automatic thread cutter broke, I remove the plate and just placed it away with my finger and use the machine without the automatic cutter.
BUT, then, the automatic tension broke! This was hell, the machien allows your to set the tenstion inside the computer, but its complitely useless, within 15min of sewing, the machine will readjust the tension for you automatically, which means that if the tension the machine sets is wrong, forget about it. There is a tension dial you can access if you remove a place with a screw driver, but adjusting the tension manually this way is also useless, within 15min of sewing, the machine will reajust the tension automatically for you. SO the machine is basically useless at this point.
RECAP: automatic threader, automatic thread cutter and automatic tension, all broken within 3 months.
-Called amazon, refused the return.
-Call Singer and it was the WORST customer service I ever got on the phone! She was rude, she refused to say the same of the service center for my machine because it was in french! She saidL its all in french, google it on your computer. WTF!
-Bring my machine to the service center, which is at the complete opposite side of town and a 3 h drive round trip. The machine stayed there 6 months! 6 MONTHS!!!!! everytime I called there was excuses, saying they ordered the part, singer customer service in on summer vacation, they its delays in the postal service, etc etc etc.
Finally 6 months later, I get a phone call saying my machine is repaired. I go to pick it up and the repair man says: singer doesnt provide the piece to repair your machine so just dont use these fonctions! WHAT?! SO USELESS.
SO I waited 6 months and told they cant repair it. What about ordering the parts and the parts being in the mail?
Yeah... forget about it. Do not buy!
Love it, this machine does it all. I cannot think of anything this machine doesn't do. Very easy to use, many different foot, stitches, etc
The machine adjust it self when there is more layers of fabric.
Messing up. I am a seamstress so I understand more then most how to work a machine.
I tried for 2 hours it was no use the cutter also stoped working properly and this is after changing the needle and using new thread.
Sending it back . I had watched a lot of videos on this machine it looked and sounded like what I wanted.
Going to get something else.
Meine erste Aufgabe war es, eine solche Puppe und Kleidung für die Puppe auf dieser Maschine zu nähen. Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit der Maschine! Ich kann sie jedem empfehlen!
