When it comes to selecting a new machine, you want to make sure it has all the features you want and need, and maybe even some extra features you didn’t know you wanted. The Husqvarna Viking Epic 980Q has all of this and more with the JoyOS Advisor, Exclusive Stitch techniques and even interactive video tutorials.
The Husqvarna Viking Epic 980Q is one of the most advanced machines on the market with exclusive stitch techniques, interactive tutorials, and an exclusive sensor system- and is one to consider when you are looking through a guide to buying a sewing machine. The Epic 980Q has one of the largest display screens of any machine with captive touch, measuring in at 10.1”, and also has some of the brightest LED lighting and largest workspace areas. The JoyOS advisor feature of this machine will help make sure you achieve accurate, even and professional looking stitches every time by setting the best stitch width and length, and automatically setting the best thread tension and presser foot pressure for the desired stitch technique. If you are trying out a stitch technique you’ve never done before, or even just looking for more sewing tips and techniques, the JoyOS advisor can show you animations and illustrations that can walk you through each step of the sewing or quilting process. The Epic 980Q also has Exclusive Stitch techniques, including theme stitches, sequin stitches and even the ability to create unique decoratie and textured stitches using dimensional stitches. If you are someone who likes to sew on a variety of different fabric weights and textures, and even combine them into one project, the exclusive sensor system on the Epic 980Q will help ensure even feeding and stitches as you sew by automatically and continuously sensing and adjusting to any thickness of fabric.
Does this machine have a drop foot, for quilting ability?
Yes, you can lower the feed dogs when quilting on this machine.
I’m new to the sewing world. What do you mean by “lower the feed dogs”?
No worries! Putting feed dogs in the down position eliminates the machine’s grip on the underside of the fabric, placing you in full control of stitch length and position.

My Singer machine keeps having problems with the feed (I think) & thread keeps binding up in a big ball between the bobbin & the material. I’ve checked the machine multiple times to be sure I haven’t threaded it incorrectly & all is correct. My needle is the correct type/size for hemming my jeans. Could I have the tension set wrong?
Has anyone else had this problem?
