Summer Time Sewing
Summer is upon us and it’s a great time to relax and enjoy family, friends and the outdoors. Perhaps you’ve got a trip, vacation or a family reunion that is approaching. Hopefully your schedule isn’t too busy, so you can find some time to sneak away to your sewing space to get your creativity flowing! This month, we’ll be exploring more options with changing lettering using the Editing software. The focus is on manipulating individual letters within a word. Perhaps you didn’t realize that each letter can have its own color, size, position and texture, but it can! You’ll have fun learning just how to make these changes. The possibilities are almost endless!

Spring is here! The trees and flowers are blooming, everything is fresh and full of life. Along with it comes a new expectancy of what lies ahead. Perhaps you’re eagerly anticipating a wedding, graduation or a new baby arriving soon. Whatever it is, spring can inspire fresh new creative ideas, and your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing and embroidery machine can help you turn them into reality.
In this month’s issue of Embroidery Made Easy, we will explore more options with built-in lettering, focusing specifically on one of the most popular lettering frames, the Arc. You will learn how easy it is to shape text layouts using the Arc frame. Then, we will show you how to create darling cupcake toppers for an upcoming graduation party using this lettering technique. This month’s Inside Your Software article will explain how to use the Design Browser to quickly and easily find designs that are stored either on the hard drive of your computer or on another storage device such as a CD-Rom. So get ready, let’s get started!

Welcome to the August 2013 issue of Embroidery Made Easy, a monthly newsletter designed to showcase tips, hints and projects for your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine.
Have you ever wondered how to create a large embroidery design? A design that was too large to be embroidered in a single hoop?
You can do just that with your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine! Larger design layouts are easily achieved by using the Multiple Hoop feature built into the software. In this month’s issue of Embroidery Made Easy, we are going to explore Multiple Hoop embroidery, while also introducing another software function called Repeat Design.
In our Project of the Month, we’ll show you how to put a creative twist on monogramming by using Multiple Hooping, Repeat Design and built-in lettering to texture fabric in an unconventional way! Complete instructions are included to show you how to take the textured fabric and use it to create a personalized handbag.
In addition, we’ll take a look at one of the ways you can change the appearance of the software screen, by using the Change Screen Color feature. It’s a handy tool that you’ll use frequently. So let’s “think big” and explore Multiple Hooping!
