One of the most popular things to do with your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine is to embellish your projects or ready-made items with letters or monograms. Who wouldn’t love to receive a gift personalized this way? Lettering can be as simple as a single letter for a monogram, or more complex with several lines of text. In this month’s issue of Embroidery Made Easy, we’ll show you some tips for working with a block of text that has several words and multiple lines by using the Advanced Spacing function, built into the software for the SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing & embroidery machine.
Then, you’ll get an opportunity to experiment using what you’ve learned in this month’s project (see below for instructions & design). It’s an adorable door hanger that’s perfect for decorating the room of that new little addition to the family. A great idea for a baby shower gift, too! In this month’s “Inside Your Software” article, we’ll show you how to change the color of the text when adding text to a design that is already on the screen.

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.
