Basic Drawing Tools
There are a lot of features that are built into the software for your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine. Our goal is to explore these features, so that you get the most out of your machine. This month’s issue of Embroidery Made Easy will expand on a few of the functions that are available in the AutoPunch™ Draw Package. Because there are so many tools to use in the Draw Package, in this issue we are narrowing it down to some of the basic drawing tools. These tools provide you with the ability to create basic shapes to use with the AutoPunch™ digitizing wizard.
In addition, you’ll use your new skills to create a beautiful border for this month’s project, a handy case for your tablet. Then, you’ll learn how to use the Show/Hide function in this month’s Inside Your Software article.

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!

School is out and the summer months are here! Winter is behind us, and it’s time to relax, take vacations or picnic by the lake. Summer is a wonderful time to regroup from the long school year and put behind hectic schedules that may have limited time for creativity. The featured technique in this month’s issue of Embroidery Made Easy provides more insight into the capabilities of the Editing software. This month you’ll learn more about Embroidery Settings, a function that provides basic dialogue from within the software to edit the settings of any block. This function can be considered as the “embroidery core” of the software.
