Stabilizer - use whatever is appropriate for the job, I have a good selection on cut away, wash/rinse away and tear away in various weights, lite, medium & heavy. There are lots of guidelines on the internet, just search for embroidery stabilizer guidelines, you'll see lots.
Thread - lots of good quality thread out there, also lots of bad. Personally I use the thread from Designsbysick, it is good quality and reasonable price. The store is closed for maintenance at the moment but I'm hoping it will be open again soon
Needles, manual say Singer (obviously) but I use any good quality EMBROIDERY needles, e.g. schmetz, organ, inspira
Hi Kayla, first E is embroidery, s is sewing.
Lynn - I already did check it out, and I bought it!Apparently my local Singer store was the first to get the XL580 and I am the first person in Canada to own one!
It is fabulous, I will have to do a full review on it soon.
Check out the Singer Futura XL580. Wow!!
In reply to Labeelady, I realize I can download designs anytime, but the real help is being able to adjust them with the program for my Futura to the Futura format fhe, I would rather play with designs when at a motel or baby-sitting than watch TV and it makes time go faster and at the same time, I am keeping up with my hobby.
This afternoon, I discovered the Singer Futura XL550/SEQS6700. It is my new dream machine. Hopefully, someday is will move from my wish list to reality.
Help Please... This morning I discovered that downloading the PES designs and I attempt to convert them to the SINGER FHE format, they are not converting. If I do the XXX or other formats, they convert automatically when set to FHE. I rebooted my computer and still no solving this problem. If I manually put the dot and FHE after the design name, it converts when I file it. Has anyone had this problem and if so, were you able to solve it? Thank you in advance..... Carol
