Several years ago when I started blogging, I made it a personal goal for myself to explore my special sewing machine feet that I had accumulated over the years. I own, Ahemm, a “collection” of machines”, so I have various feet from each machine that I’ve never explored. I thought it would be fun to take one at a time and learn to use it and see where this journey would take me. After all, I freely admit that I purchased the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960, just to get the bonus foot collection to use on my Singer Quantum L-500. That sort of developed into the Video Series which I continue to produce featuring the machine.
Years ago, when I first learned to sew and even on into my college years for Fashion Design and Pattern Making, I only used a few feet. I had the basics: A utility sewing foot, zipper foot, buttonhole foot and a few others, but those were the three I really used the most. My interests were in Couture Garment Manufacturing and you might be surprised to learn that it only requires a single needle machine for construction. Couture sewing in fact means, Fine Sewing. These garments are usually lined which alleviates the need for an overlock machine. Hems and finishing are always completed by hand, so no fancy machine stitches are required.
Of course though, we all like special sewing machine feet. We like to find quicker and easier ways to accomplish sewing tasks because for most of us our sewing time is limited. So–Bring on the Specialty Sewing Machine Feet!
Here’s a list of the bonus feet that came along with the Singer 9960:
Just recently, I started a Facebook Group for those that Own, Use and LOVE the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960. It’s been wonderful to see how people have embraced the group by sharing what they’ve made, helping others with issues and by offering support to one another. One very kind member shared some information that came with her machine. She received written instructions for the bonus feet that came with her 9960. Special Thanks to YOU Meredyth for sharing this valuable information! I didn’t receive this information with my machine, so I thought I would past it along here for those of you that might be interested and not belong to our FB Group. Part of the reason for my Video Series was because there weren’t any written instructions about these feet in the manual that came along with this machine.
I hope if you were missing this information also, that you find it helpful. If you’re looking for further instructions on these specialty feet, be sure to check out my Video Series on YouTube.
