The Write Up From Husqvarna:
If you are sewing on a mechanical machine or an older computerized model, you are missing out on the benefits of modern technology. Our OPAL 670 computerized sewing machine is extra-efficient with loads of built-in assistance to change the way you sew for the better! Let your Husqvarna VikingOPAL sewing machine focus on delivering the best results while you relax and focus on the joy of sewing!
What Does That Mean to You as a User?
Using the Opal 670 is easy and comfortable.? The large sewing area accommodates big projects without cramping your movement, and the big screen has all of your stitch information in one place.? This machine is a great entry level comfort machine giving complete control over all aspects of your sewing – most especially with the Sewing Advisor which will automatically change stitch settings, thread tension and needle advice, based on the fabric and sewing task that you are undertaking.
Our Favourite Feature?
The scissor function.? Finish a seam and then with the press of a button, the upper and lower thread are pulled to the bottom of your fabric, and trimmed with a neat tail.
Something That It’s Missing?
There is no pivot action on this machine. This function raises the foot while lowering the needle into your fabric, anchoring it and allowing you to securely pivot without having to take your hands off of your work. Pressing the foot control will lower the foot again and continue sewing. This is a great asset for making quilting and applique that much easier. Try the Sapphire 960Q
