MERCURY DELA 65 ELECTRONIC HOME SEWING MACHINE
The last of these machines available. We have sold over 300 of these Dela’s and our customers love them. The remaining stock had some damaged boxes from shipping. All machines have been re-boxed and test sewn by us for peace of mind. Reduced warranty to limited 6 months for these remaining machines at this price.
A wonderful electronic home sewing machine, a true pleasure to use. No need to study the manual, this machine is surprisingly intuitive to use and combines all the best features.
Bonus: Includes hard cover (most machines in this price range come with a soft dust cover only).
The Dela 65 is supplied by a Japanese company who also supply other big brand name companies and make high end embroidery machines. They have excellent quality control and attention to detail.
You will love the auto-cutter which cuts your threads for you at the end of a seam, top and bottom, with a simple touch of the button! Closest machine to it in price is the Brother A150 @ $799 RRP.
A ridiculously quiet machine, you'll be able to squeeze in some sewing without waking sleeping kids, or sew in the living room while your partner watches TV without getting the evil eye from them (believe us, we've tried this!).
The body is solid and stable, with a die cast aluminium frame, with no noticeable bouncing or reverberation. The stitch quality is excellent, smooth and reliable. The electronic system gives you complete control of your machine when stitching, down to individual stitches.
All the stitches are pre-programmed into the machine which automatically sets the optimal stitch length, stitch width, and upper tension for the stitch you have selected. However you can also easily customise these settings without accidentally going beyond the capabilities of the stitch.

OPTIONAL EXTRAS for the Dela 65
We stock a large range of presser feet - there is a presser foot for every sewing task! The Dela 65 takes generic low shank snap-on or screw-on feet. Popular presser feet include 1/4" Piecing Foot, Walking Foot, Piping Foot, Rolled Hem Foot and darning foot.
We recommend always using the correct needle type for the sewing project. Remember that machine needles are a consumable part, they wear out and become damaged which can impact the quality of the machine's stitching and the success of your project. The Dela 65 takes 130/705H needles, also known as HAx1 or Singer 2020 needles.
The Dela 65 comes with a few extra bobbins but why not stock up on them so you always have a spare bobbin available when you buy a new thread colour? The Dela 65 takes Class 15 plastic bobbins. We recommend storing them in one of our Foam Bobbin Boxes to save them from getting dusty and tangled, or use our bobbin pegs to secure each bobbin to its matching thread reel.
