23  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Re: Singer Futura? on: July 30, 2009 07:10:59 AM
I would do some research into the features of the particular one you are going to buy & embroidery programs (both Singer & 3rd party) before purchasing.  The base models don't come with the (expensive) singer programs that let you *really* do stuff on the embroidery part, but the higher futura models do.  There are 3rd party programs that allow you to do everything with fonts and other designs for a lower price point than the singer ones.

Oh, and I haven't messed with the embroidery part very much, but I'm going to start soon---I just need to buy some embroidery thread and stabilizers! lol   The one time I tried it, it looked like it was going to work well---it just needed some tweaking on tension and such.  For me at least, it's going to take a little time to really sit down and get it looking nice (not because of the machine, just because I don't have the time right now to do it! lol)

Also, I'm sure there are better ones out there, but I think it was a decent price when I bought mine, and I didn't want to spend a TON of $ on a machine and I decided that I didn't want to do embroidery.  I'm actually going to start saving my $$ so I can get a machine that I can do more for quilting (like a Bernina--I'd LOVE the stitch regulator for my free motion quilting) and use this to do the embroidery that I want to do (simple childrens designs and font's--I have no desire to do super fancy embroidery)

Edited to add:  There is a Singer Futura yahoo group that is a really good resource for all things related to the futura embroidery machines!

What about sewing the triangles together, then to add the black go over it with black bias binding, sort of like you would use in Celtic knots.
