Introducing, NEW to 2018 the Husqvarnar Viking EPIC 980Q sewing machine. The biggest and best in its class to date, boasting the largest sewing area of any stand alone sewing machine and the largest touch screen, just to name a couple.
After spending time listening to customer feedback and ideas Husqvarna Viking decided to remove the embroidery machine heart of the Designer Epic and in doing so has come up with the most fantastic sewing machine you could ever wish to operate. Husqvarna were very conscious not to compromise by keeping all of the best sewing features such as the massive 10.1" Full colour Interactive tablet-style touch Screen which makes stitch selection very simple and clear. On the intuitive touch screen you can pinch, sweep and zoom just like on a table or smartphone.
Because of the enormity and clarity of the screen the Joy Of Sewing (Sewing Advisor) is a really useful tool, the tutorials are very easy to follow step by step and the videos and animation are crystal clear, you'll be mastering mitred corners and zips in no time at all.
Keep your companion (sewing machine) up to date and connected by downloading the MySewnet App on your smartphone to share project ideas with your machine from wherever you are using your free MySewnet cloud account. Also your machine will update automatically as and when new firmware updates are released.
Now tried and tested the fully automatic needle threader which was eventually introduced to the Husqvarna range back in 2015 with the launch of the Designer EPIC, the threader has proved over time to be faultless and more increasingly a must have on any sewing machine. It simply threads that eye of the needle at the single push of a button, no more magnifying glasses and scrunched up faces or profanities, just smiles all round.
Your work space is tremendous on this machine even HUGE projects a dwarfed by the space you have to work with, an Epic 67 square inches of space that’s over 12 inches from the needle to the right and over 5 inched from base to ceiling. To compliment that work space the LED lighting is improved and vast, the whole bed area is fantastically illuminated to cast virtually zero shadows on your project. Because of the sloped design and position of the head of the machine visibility is perfect when watching the area where the needle impacts your sewing and the lighting on both sides of the needle highlight your work in perfect presentation.
The Viking 980Q Quilting machine is jam packed full of sewing features designed to make your experience more pleasurable ever time. Some simple conveniences as the sleek spacious accessory storage area to the hassle free thread sensor system. The EPIC will constantly adjust itself to ensure your stitch is perfect every time regardless of fabric or thread. Husqvarnas Exclusive Sensor System does away with tensions, instead of a conventional thread tension the EPIC 980 only feeds you the tread that you need to complete your stitch, even the most obscure of threads have a much greater chance of not snapping when being sewn with the EPIC 980Q and the stitch will be perfectly balanced. Even when quilting, you can use the included Duel Feed Foot to ensure when you are sewing multiple layers your sewing is balanced and neat. The Exclusive Sensor System works with every stitch, every thread and every fabric, even on button holes which are measured and balanced to be perfectly replicated how you want them time after time providing perfect symmetry consistently.
