What customers say about "Key Specs"
SINGER Futura XL-400 Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine
  • I got the 30 stitch machine and it is more than enough for what I do.
  • The stitches are perfect and it works fast.
  • Worked very easily and stitching came out beautiful! I was a little concerned because I read negative reviews that the thread breaks often.
  • The machine throws down beautiful stitches and the software is far more reasonable than comps from other brands.
  • The stitching is beautiful and consistent on satin, chiffon, denim, and even laminated cotton.
Brother PE770 Embroidery-only machine
  • Straight out of the box this machine stitches like a dream! The PE770 is much quieter and WAY faster than the Brother pe500 I owned before it.
  • I am THRILLED with it....the stitching is superb...the construction of the machine is impressive....the manuals are informative.
  • I have put in well over 1million stitches already on it, and its still going strong. I have not had it serviced yet and will probably wait til it starts giving me issues. An absolutely wonderful machine that I enjoy using!
  • It stitches very beautiful, it works like a charm. Just have patience, don't give up and figure out what works for you.
  • 650 speed is much faster than my old Bernina--the designs really stitch fast

What customers say about "Features"
SINGER Futura XL-400 Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine
  • I choose this machine because it's a fairly new model with auto thread, automated features and it doubles as a sewing machine as well as embroidery machine.
  • The software is blah itself so don't purchase it for that feature and expect it to do all Embird does.
  • I love the many features it offers, including multi-hooping and enlarging or modifying designs.
  • It is very easy to figure out and has so many cool features.
  • It requires an additional software purchase to have the auto punch and digitization features. This was my mistake, but luckily I had my own software previously.
