Style Name: XL-400 with 30 stitches
I owned this machine for several months by now, and its amazing.
As with any technological product (no matter if its a cellular or a sewing Machine) there's a learning curve for it. Do research, read manuals, ask around.

I did a ton of research before buying this particular model. It could sew and embroider. most of the machines just came with either 4x4 hoops or 4 x 4 and 5 x 7 hoops. the large hoop for large projects are a plus. and last but not least, the price range of it, compare to other brands that do the same was the selling point hundred of dollars less than the others. WOW.

Machine Related:
- The sewing/embroidering part is big, yes BIG, making quilting or sewing big projects easier. But if you did a little research on this particular machine, you already knew it was big and that you will need ample space for it. When in sewing mode, its not bigger than any regular sewing machine, but with the embroidery arm attached this thing is huge, as to accommodate the big hoop that came with it.
Mine is sitting on a desk by itself and my regular sewing machine and serger are in another desk.
- Its very bright, which means that working on it is less of a task, more of a joy.

Sewing part:
- Include most of the presser feet you might need to start any project right away. - A beautiful selections of stitches lost of stitches to task and embellish your fabric. its true, there are not hundreds of them, but there are plenty.
- making button hole is easier.
- Threading system helps those of us that struggle with needle eye :-)

Embroidery part:
-Right out of the box, it comes with a software that allows you to do a ton of embroidery designs included.

UPDATE NOV 2015: I suppose that after reading all of the negative comments about this machine I may have been one of the lucky ones. As I posted when I first got this machine, there were quirks, but once figured out, this turned out to be a great embroidery machine for the casual embroidering that I enjoy. Perhaps if I were inclined to spend over $1500 for a machine I would upgrade to a Janome or Bernina but for my purposes, this machine has been top notch. what I love about this machine after so long a time of ownership is the larger hoops, it does a beautiful straight stitch and the ability to plug in to my computer and download images. I have successfully embroidered dozens of jackets, aprons, quilt tops, have done quilting and general sewing and it has turned out to be an all around good machine. Yes, singer customer service sucks. I would rather search the internet for answers than talk to a person anyway, so my two phone calls to them in the beginning were worthless and I found answers on my own. I did not drop $$ on this machine to give up so easily. Anyway, 2 years later and not disappointed in this machine at all.

ORIGINAL:
Let me begin with background to establish my experience and validity of this review. I have been sewing for 27 years - I have used Singer machines made in 1931 all the way through the 21st century. I make clothing, quilts, crafts, home accessories and household items, as well as alter/tailor those same items. I know how to repair basic malfunctions of a sewing machine. Embroidering is completely new to me. With that said here goes.

I purchased this machine because it has been 16 years (yes she said 16) since I have owned a NEW machine.

I upgraded from a smaller embroidery hoop machine to this one. I have had my hands full trying to learn about needles, material and different stabilizers. There is a learning curve to using this machine for embroidery. But that hard work is really paying off because this machine is able to do some fantastic things.

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.
