Why choose the Husqvarna Opal 650 from us?
Welcome to the world of computerized sewing machines. The Husqvarna Opal 650 uses modern technology to make sewing more than a pleasant experience. This efficient machine features plenty of built-in functions, 8 inches of sewing space, an exclusive sewing advisor and much more. The Opal 650 takes sewing to a whole new level with a large graphic display and memory, plenty of programming functions, and more. It comes with 160 types of stitches, 7 different types of buttonholes, 7 pressure adaptable presser feet, adjustable stitch length and width, and more.
As you can see from the image the Opal 650 is equipped with the sewing advisor that offers assistance on how to select different stitches, and settings for various kinds of fabric. Select the type of fabric and the advisor will recommend everything from the stitch width and length to the needle size, choice of presser foot, and more. Also included is a well illustrated manual with a complete step by step guide for using twin needles. Some of the presser feet that come with the machine includes 2 utility feet, a zipper foot, edging foot, blind hem foot, embroidery and teflon non-stick feet and more. Also included is a sensor one-step buttonhole foot that does all the work for you!
The Fix and Stop features at the touch of a button can be used to reinforce stitches at the beginning and end of your stitching. Choosing a pattern/stitch is as simple as pressing its number into the keypad. It also comes with an large graphic screen showing the stitch to be sewn and more information like length, width, foot pressure, but don't worry all this is set automatically by the sewing advisor.
The Husqvarna Opal 650 comes with a large deck and 3 LED lights that make sewing easy on your eyes while the needle threader lets you thread needles in an instant. You can save your personal stitch setting and programs in the machine’s 4 memories that can save up to 20 stitches or letters in each memory. Other features include 29 needle positions that allows for precise positioning for edge stitching, topstitching, quilting, and more, a sew on button program, drop-in bobbin, and many other useful functions that make the Opal 650 worth much more than its price.
While using the opal 650 you will find the display screen easy on the eye! The screen is backlit and the graphic icons are very easy to view, not like some machines we have used in the past. It is a machine we would recommend for sewers that want to enjoy being creative.

Next Working day delivery free is an amazing bonus. Unfortunately DPD did not deliver the next day but I did get it the day after. I had received a demonstration of this machine locally and was not disappointed when it arrived. It is very easy to use and versatile machine. I had a Husqvarna mechanical machine before so this feels very different. I also bought the Husqvarna walking foot and this floats over the quilting layers. I look forward to trying all the decorative stitches. I will definitely buy from sewing machine sales again.
Such a neat machine with a multitude of stitch variations. I previously owned a manual Husqvarna machine. Moving on to a computerised machine has inspired me to take on new projects. To have dedicated quilting stitches on the programme and plenty of space to the right of the needle is ideal. Great machine. Not too heavy.
I love to use my new Opal sewing machine. It feels larger than my old one. But in fact it is only slightly bigger by a few cm's. The difference is I can get more fabric through the gap under the arm when sewing big quilt sections.
Now i can add my name to everything i make, often its hidden in seams. I am happy with my sewing results on this lovely machine.
