I can't stress enough the need for you to get to know your machine. You're not going to sit down the first time and turn out a perfect piece of work. You're not going to get the machine to thread itself every time until you get the hang of it. You're going to break needles. The learning curve is high but the satisfaction from getting to know your machine is priceless. The machine is large and looks impressive on the table. Learning how to use this machine is like learning how to play a musical instrument. It does not come overnight. You must practice, and practice will lead to perfection. Take time and start out slowly with easy projects. Then graduate to more difficult embroidery. Soon you'll find that you are an artist making beautiful items with the Singer Futura XL 580.
And when you embroider, remember that what goes in the machine through the computer is what comes out. In other words, spend a little money on well-digitized designs such as those at embroiderylibrary.com. Don't try to make a purse out of a pigs ear. Free designs are free for a reason...they are not worth anything. You get what you pay for. Take it from someone who had persistence in learning how to use and service his XL-580, I wouldn't trade my machine for anything. I can say that I absolutely love it.
As a sewing machine, it is large and sturdy and I have no problems with it walking off the table from vibrations. It is able to sew through heavy materials with no difficulty and it is easy to change tensions, stitch patterns and adjust stitch length and width. I really enjoy being able to adjust the needle position to just the right place I want the want the seam. This is really handy for piecing quilt blocks since you can get the perfect quarter inch seam with ease.
The various stitch patterns make sewing and decorating garments and accessories fun and beautiful. Sleeves are easy too because of the free arm. Small items are surprisingly easy to maneuver to despite the largeness of the machine.
Quilting on this machine is a breeze due to the larger space. Although there is no walking foot included it can easily use any foot that is for a low shank machine. The exciting part is that you can use the embroidery machine to quilt with. There are many patterns you can use that are easy to download off the internet, as well as design your own. When my small quilt was finished I decided to embroider a medallion in the center of it, which was easy to do, it came out beautiful.
The embroidery on different materials is a little challenging. T-shirts especially. They do come out beautiful, once you learn how to do it. That does take a bit of work.
With the embroidery program you can use your computer to design patterns and appliques. There is quite a bit of learning involved to it, but the capabilities are amazing. There are several online groups dedicated to this machine and the many talented members are willing and able to offer help when you are facing any difficulties. If I were a beginner sewist, I think the challenges of using this machine would be much greater. Not impossible but certainly more difficult.
I am glad I upgraded to this machine despite all the hard work in learning how to use it. Every day it is getting easier to use. It is taking my abilities to the next level and I am able to produce things that I never thought possible. Without this machine that never would have happened.
