Fancy Trim Foot: Video Part 17

Hi Everyone! Well…..I’ve come to the end of a journey!  It’s taken me a while, but this is the final foot from the Bonus Foot Collection that came with the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960 for me to show in a video demo.  Can you believe it?  The foot I will be featuring in this video is the Fancy Trim Foot.


This is Part 17 in my Video Series featuring this Amazing, Affordable machine!  It’s been a wonderful learning experience for me and I’m happy so many of you have found these video’s helpful!  Don’t worry…..I have other videos planned, so stay tuned.  I’m always interested in hearing what you’d like to see in future video demo’s too!

Here’s a list of the bonus feet that came along with this machine:
4.  Fancy Trim Foot
6. 1/4″ Foot and Quilting Bar 
7.  Shank/Ankle

If you’ve been watching my video series and reading my blog, you know that I like to show simple sewing operations in a different way.  I like to bring something a little off the beaten path and push the boundaries.  This foot is no exception.  Yes, this foot can be used in a traditional way to sew on flat trim or ribbon with either a single needle straight or deco stitch.  It can also be used with a twin needle.  I really like that look.  So clean, simple and sewn in one operation.  If you’d like more information on threading the 9960 for sewing with a Twin Needle, here’s the link to Video Part 9.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to use the Twin Needle/Double Needle on the Singer 9960, here’s the link to my video: Singer Video Part 9

The other trim that the Fancy Trim Foot sews on with ease, is a string of continuous sequins!!  Yes….SEQUINS!!  How about adding a little glitz to your next project using this foot.  I used a Mono-filament/Invisible Sewing Thread to apply the trim so the stitches would be invisible.  There is one important thing to keep in mind when sewing on continuous sequin trim.  It’s directional.  That means, one sequin lay’s over the next sequin in a consecutive row.  So with that being said, it’s important to feed the sequins into the foot in acertain direction as shown in the picture below.

I hope you’ll give this foot a try and let me know how you liked the Fancy Trim Foot!  If you Own, Use and LOVE the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960, consider joining our Facebook Group!  We are a very active group and enjoy sharing our projects and supporting each other.

  1. Roxanne,
    I only started sewing at the end of last year when my husband picked me up a mechanical sewing machine from a garage sale. I am a crocheter, knitter, spinner, cross-stitcher and jewelry maker- – but had never sewn in my life! I played around on that machine and realized that sewing was a lot of fun! But I also realized there were some features that would be a big help to me, but were not on my machine. So, I started doing research. Some of the quilting stores I went to wanted me to buy $2000+ sewing machines! I was only just starting out and that was NOT gonna happen!
    Thanks to your video series–after lots of research, I decided on the Quantum Stylist 9960. And I love it! I am now making bags and doing TONS of intricate paper-piecing projects. I cannot wait to use the free-motion quilting foot. Your series not only helped me choose a great machine, but you gave me the courage to jump in and try out the different feet and features! So, thank you:)
    I would love to see a video on common troubleshooting. (I already had to figure out how to fix my needle threader as with use the hook can get misaligned.) Also cleaning the machine and maybe any other tips that owners should be aware of when caring for or using their machine. Do's and Don'ts, for example.
    Thank you again for an AWESOME series and all the time you put into it:) -Tonya W.

  2. HI Tonya!! I'm so Happy to hear you've discovered sewing and are Loving your 9960! I do have a video on cleaning your machine. It's video #11:
    Thanks for the great suggestion to do a video on troubleshooting the needle threader.

  3. Just saw the cleaning episode was on my feed! Will check it out for sure!
