Welcome to an intuitive, interactive sewing experience. The Husqvarna Viking Epic 980Q is one of their most advanced and comprehensive computerised sewing machines ever made. Made for sewers, by sewers to set your imagination on fire.

A winning combination of guidance and freedom

Take advantage of the convenient JoyOS Advisor feature, a special interactive resource that supplies interactive tutorials, stitch techniques, quick help and the complete user’s guide. All at your fingertips. Utilise the extended guidance JoyOS Advisor feature to:

  • Select your fabric type for a wide selection of applicable sewing techniques.

  • Let the machine instantly set the best stitch, stitch width/length, thread tension or thread portioning for your selected fabric type.
  • Automatically regulate presser foot pressure for the technique you’ve chosen.
  • Consult animations and illustrations to assist you with expert advice on the screen.
  • Learn how to sew different techniques like zippers, collars, hems, and more.

  • With our quick help feature, you can touch any stitch, icon or function to see its name and description.
  • Open the user’s guide directly on your screen to review everything you need to know about your machine.

All of this is illuminated over an attractive tablet-like display – an interface that allows for multi-touch functions, just like operating your smartphone or tablet.

Graceful & Sleek

The Epic 980Q is a splendid combination of large sewing area and durable presence. It boasts on of the most generous working areas available, optimised with a sewing head designed for visibility, so you can survey the area with great clarity. This spacious platform is complemented by the lightweight one-piece aluminium casting, which means the Epic 980Q is the lightest machine in its class. Durable, quiet and extremely stable, this machine stands still so you can make history.

Not all LED systems are equal

The Epic 980Q incorporates a revolutionary new lighting system, developed by optronic experts. The working area involves a number of powerful LEDs mounted on the light module, for a uniquely bright sewing experience that virtually eliminates shadows and blind spots. This illumination, combined with the light guide optics, ensures that exceptional light is cast throughout the entirety of the workspace, enabling fabric and stitches to be observed in true colour. With this kind of clarity, anything that you can envision is yours to share.

Hassle-free threading - every time

With one touch of a button your needle is threaded and ready to sew with the built-in fully automatic needle threader. Another way you’ll get from “idea to done” in no time.

Dream from your fingertips

A generous 10.1” (217 x 136mm) full-colour multi-touch LCD display with 180° viewing angle and high resolution (1280 x 800px) offers you an easy to navigate, intuitive experience when you swipe, pinch and zoom.

Instant and interactive guidance

The JoyOS Advisor feature is your source for illustrations and tutorials, guided projects and sewing techniques for zippers, collars, hems and more. Your complete user’s guide is always available with the touch of a finger.

Plenty of space to shine

An expansive 12.2” x 5.5” (310 x 140mm) of operating space illuminated by revolutionary LED technology and light guide optics.

Easy, automatic adjustment to any fabric

Husqvarna's Exclusive Sensor System technology automatically and continuously senses and adjusts to any thickness of fabric for perfect, even feeding as you sew.

More bobbin, less time

Large bobbins mean you can do more sewing before it’s time to change your bobbin. A separate bobbin winding motor is placed on the side of the machine – a real time-saver that can wind your bobbin as you sew.

See more, and sew much more

Get gorgeous stitch results using various types of threads with the deLuxe Stitch System which selects the best thread delivery method for you, either thread portioning or thread tension, for specific techniques and accessories.

Always stay connected

Convenient thread paths

New thread paths with telescopic thread guides allow you to use all of your favourite threads, even if they are on large spools.

Stay organised

Keep all the included accessories handy in the accessory tray. The customized compartments allow you to store your presser feet in alphabetical order, and has a slot for the sensor buttonhole foot and a designated space for the second stitch plate, needle packages, extra tools and more.

Perfect even feeding

The included interchangeable dual feed foot is designed to feed layers of fabric and batting evenly - no matter what type of fabric. Especially suited for quilting and fabrics that need perfect pattern matching.
