Happy New Year from all of us at SINGER®! This is the time when many of us like to focus on sprucing up our home or wardrobe for the new year ahead! After the holidays, budgets may seem a bit tighter than usual, but you can always give a quick make-over, with lots of impact, by adding an embroidery or other new embellishment to what you already own. Why not try adding an appliqué? Appliqués can add a wonderful, creative touch to your projects. Although they are simple to make, it does take practice to perfect the technique. In this month’s issue of Embroidery Made Easy, we’ll show you how you can use the software for your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine to quickly and professionally create appliqués that look perfect every time.

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!
