SINGER® FUTURA™ “Embroidery Made Easy” Newsletter (September)

Embroidery Made Easy, Tips & Hints

We are delighted to launch the September 2013 issue of Embroidery Made Easy, a monthly newsletter designed to showcase tips, hints and projects for your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine.

 

Embroidering is fun, but creating your own designs provides an even more exciting way to unleash your creativity!

Fall is here and the kids have gone back to school, so it’s a perfect time to get creative with your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine! You can really express yourself by digitizing your own designs. Perhaps you’d like to stitch out some of your children’s favorite artwork and put them on a keepsake quilt? Or a create a logo? Whatever your vision, your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine can help you make it come to life.

In this issue of Embroidery Made Easy, we will introduce you to the AUTOPUNCH™ digitizing software. You’ll learn the basics of using the AUTOPUNCH™ Wizard and then practice what you’ve learned in this month’s project – a cute embroidered dish towel for your kitchen. In addition, we will explain the “Color Block List” feature that’s inside your software. Hope you’re excited – let’s get started!

Embroidery Made Easy, New Products, Tips & Hints

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® FUTURAsewing & 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!

Quick Trick for Reinforcing a Buttonhole

Tips & Hints

An excellent tip from the experts!

Have you ever sewn a perfect buttonhole and then accidentally cut the stitches; or have you sewn a buttonhole in a delicate or knit fabric and have it sag or look frayed? For perfect results, try placing a strip of fusible webbing between the fabric and your presser foot . After you have sewn the buttonhole, trim away as much of the fusible web as possible. Next hold a steam iron above the buttonhole and steam until the entire remaining fusible web is dissolved. This will help add stability to the buttonhole.
