Not only is this a new model to the Opal range, but it is a sewing machine that will have most of the functions that make a sewing machine feel special. For instance, imagine cutting both the top and bottom thread at the touch of a button! Simple things like not having to reach for the scissors at the end of every seam, makes sewing more enjoyable.
The Husqvarna Opal 690Q is computerised. It has 208 stitches with a stitch width of 7mm. 565 stitches including letters and numbers. In fact their is a choice of 4 different font styles. When using the lettering, each name or phrase can be saved in to one of 12 memories giving a total of a 240 total stitch memory.
We love the fully automatic thread tension system. It works in conjunction with the stitch selected and the type of material that is being used. You can access the sewing advisor and tell it you would like to sew a blind hem on medium weight cotton and the machine will take care of the settings and produce professional invisible hems as a result.
The Opal 690Q is a sewing machine I would buy if I did not already have about 700 in our warehouse. In fact I do own one, in fact several, unfortunately they have to be sold. But seriously; I will be using this machine for my next sewing project.
It offers a fairly large 8 inch sewing surface to conveniently work on large projects. Have a good look at the images, one of the images shows a close up of the new LED lights. They look like globes that sit to the left and right of the machine needle bar and presser foot. I know many of our sewers like to use their machine late in to the night. Using the 690Q will not be a problem. It gives a huge well lit area all around the sewing bed.
Another feature is an exclusive one-step buttonhole foot sensor for you to make those perfect buttonholes you have always desired. Use the electronic control to slow it down for doing free-motion embroidery, 5 speed settings. Plus the speed is instantly variable by using the foot control.
It’s loaded with 10 presser feet and accessories, including spare bobbins, spool cap, needles, brush, screw driver, felt pad, stylus, patchwork bar, lint brush and seam ripper. Additional assistance is available in the well illustrated manual which includes a step by step guide for twin needle usage. As well as regular feet for inserting zips, over-edging and decorative sewing. The 690q has 1/4" quilters seam foot, the clear view satin foot and the embroidery/darning foot fro free-motion stippling. Everything can be kept safe and secure under the hard plastic cover.
The Husqvarna Opal 690Q sews quality stitches that any quilter would be proud to show off. We are confident you will fall in love with the Opal and we offer a 30 day returns.
