XL-400 - Selecting a Design to Embroidery Tutorial
On Oct 27th, I just purchased the Singer Futura Quartet 4 in 1 6000 series Sewing Machine and so far it is great - easy to learn. it came with everything. The only thing I have bought for it is the SINGER 2 SPOOL STAND (Merrow Global 228776C) so I could use the large salus embroidery valve pack 5000M thread spools. If you do not have a computer just buy a guaranteed used computer for very little money to run the computer software which is a must to open up your Futura embroidering automatic ability. So far it is great. Will keep you posted if anything different.

This machine is amazing! I was worried that it was going to take me forever to learn how to use it as I am a beginner but it was very easy to master! NO complaints.
Best embroidery machine!!

This embroidery machine was purchased after I made a Memory Quilt. The machine I already had did not have a font large enough for the quilt. I couldn't have made a better choice. The large embroidery area is one of the best features. I have had so much fun embroidering towels, canvas bags, jackets and of course quilts. Now if you could make a Singer Sewing Machine Trolley case that will fit the Futura 400XL, that's my next purchase.
