This is my third sewing machine and I am impressed. It is very efficient and smooth. I love a lot of the auto features. I have a Mac and have to use parallels to use the embroidery software but it's not too bad. The PC software is the only reason I gave it four and not five stars.

I love my machine. My first adventure was pajamas for 4 children. I monogramed my new scrubs& a HUGE blanket. I embroidered a bunch of onesies when my last 2 grandchildren were born. I made makeup bags in the hoop for Christmas. It was so nice to be able to sew & embroider on the same machine. I think I have used all the built in stiches & they always came out beautifully. I have many more projects in my head. Each time I complete a project successfully it leads me to new ones. As a novice, I would suggest you view many of the tutorials or attend a class before starting your own projects.

I have had 6 Singer machines over 50 years and this XL-400 is everything I ever wanted in my sewing machine. I love the easy and how quite it is to use. I am a loyal Singer customer even though dealers have tried to steer me into purchasing another brand. I currently have the Singer Pro-fiinish OVERLOCK and Singer 3810. I have loaned out my older machInes. At the present time I couldn't be happier with my new XL-400. My next purchase will be accessories for the XL-400.

I originally purchased this machine for the larger hoop design function and in that area it does beautifully, but it's the ease of switching stitch patterns that's really great. I do a lot of top stitching on my projects and being able to flip back and forth between several stitch designs so easily is fantastic. (one wee grumble, wish it had a larger lighted area) I own several Singers, you can't go wrong with quality craftsmanship.
love this machine

I am giving this 4 stars only because it does not have a led screen built in but it is habit not need that makes me feel that way. I also miss the auto thread cutter like on my 9960 and most all other (Singer) machines.
I have owned Singers for 53 years and this one for 2 plus. I picked this for the following;
Love that it allows upgrades from the net.
Love, love, love that it will allow use of almost all embroidery types without major manipulation
Love using computer to design, download and embroider.
I have never had problems with tension or birdnesting, as some have said, which i feel happened because of using wrong needles and bobbins.
Being able to triangulate large embroidery designs
Size. I hate little machines for most sewing because they are usually noisy and like to jump around. That is not a problem with this.
It is so good with embroidery, that while i am embroidering with it, i often sew on my 9960,another favorite of mine, though i do stay in the same room.
Needless to say, i love all the common functions like bobbin winding, etc.
I could go on all day, but if you look at the product info on this machine, its all true. Read the manuals and take it step by step. In a short time, you will be thrilled with your projects.

I have had my Singer for about 3 years now and I love it. I can do any thing with it that the more costly machines will do. The only problem I had was when I had it serviced the company that serviced it messed it up so I sent it to Singer and now it is working beautifully.
Better than Brother

I have had this machine for about a year. I amost didn't buy it because I saw a few bad reviews but I am glad I read the good reviews too...some people you just can't please! I have made so many things with this machine! I LOVE this machine! I started out with premade designs but now I am doing my own and have upgraded the software to a more advanced program. My friends love that I have this machine too as they get lots of neat handmade gifts!!! When I bought the machine I got 5 tyoes of interfacing and lots of thread in the package- so glad that I took the whole package because it really helped me to test the water having everything that I needed as a beginner right there! My boyfriend even uses the machine to put all kindsof wildlife on his shirts! So easy to use!

Just like anything technical it has a slight learning curve but nothing you can't read the manual or YouTube it and figure it out. I was a complete beginner and no experience at all and I use it daily no problems!! I love mine! Also love the customer service & fast shipping!!

Absolutely live mine! It's all about learning your machine and what threads to use, what speed, what tension, etc. but once you learn that you're set and ready to go for almost every project!! I use line daily!
Very easy to use - love it

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.
