Best of all, sewers even receive a variety of free accessories that will enhance their sewing and make things even more simple for them. Of course, like all machines, the Futura Quartet does have a few drawbacks to its name. One sewer found it problematic to switch the machine to embroidery mode. Another person deplored the fact that it is only compatible with PCs, which meant that she couldn’t use it on her Mac. A few people also found it problematic to properly set up the different feet. Beginners claimed that the machine software was not user-friendly, which made it complicated for them to indulge in lengthier projects.
Other than these few minor complaints, the Singer Futura Quartet has an impressive rating on most major review sites and is certainly a recommended buy.
Embroidery Area: 5/5
The embroidery area is spacious enough to comfortably accommodate larger embroidery designs. In fact, it is even bigger than what you’ll get with the more-expensive embroidery-only model Janome 350E. Now this is great because it ensures that you won’t need to repeatedly rehoop the fabric. The machine includes an oversized 10 x 6″ hoop as well as a smaller 4 x 4″. You can also use the multi-hooping option to get an embroidery area of up to 18.5 x 11″. Having a small hoop is also a great feature since it allows sewers to work with smaller embroidery designs (which means most of them) in a more comfortable manner.
Ease of Use: 4/5
While it comes with quilting, embroidery and sewing functions, this model is still surprisingly easy to use once you get the hang of switching between functions. This is largely due to the straightforward illustrated instructions manual designed to guide you through the specifications and features. To make things even easier for you, the machine boasts of an automatic needle threader which so you won’t have to lose time fiddling with the thread. Indeed, sewers simply need to swipe their finger across the LCD screen to activate the mechanism that automatically inches the thread through the eye of the needle. The Futura Quartet even includes an electronic automatic thread cutter to swiftly cut the bottom and top of the thread for a more professional finish. Sewers will be glad to learn that this model also comes with a handy drop and sew bobbin system designed to help you avoid snags and snares. Therefore, sewers just need to place the thread in the channel after inserting the bobbin and the machine is ready to sew.
Because of the USB portability, you can easily connect your machine to your computer and enjoy a wide range of additional amenities like software updates and other similar features.
Extra Features: 5/5
With the boxed packaging, users also receive a bonus Auto-Punch Software to enhance their embroidery project. This program is designed to help you effortlessly convert logos, clip arts and images into embroidery. With this software, you will also benefit from a variety of easy-to-use guides that are specifically aimed at beginners. You can also use this particular software to edit, scan and create additional images or to choose your angles, colors and stitch types.
Thanks to the Hyperfont software, sewers can even convert any TrueType font from their PCS into their embroidery projects: therefore, you only need to type in the text that you want and select your embellishments and size to create various types of monograms to personalize your pillowcases, cushion covers, towels and other such items.
When it comes to the embroidery function, the Singer SEQS-6700 boasts of 125 embroidery designs and 20 alphabet fonts, plus the capacity of uploading more than 1000 additional embroidery designs from your computer.
It is also equipped with no less than 215 built-in sewing stitches, including 192 decorative, 8 stretch, 10 essential as well as 6 fully automatic 1-step buttonholes. It also comes with 1 endless buttonhole. The 6 StayBright LED lighting system provides bright illumination, which makes it far easier for you to operate the machine at night or during dark weathers. To guarantee your comfort, the apparatus even includes an extra high presser foot system that leaves your hands free to manipulate the fabric for quilting or embroidery. The needle can be adjusted to several different angles for a precise and highly professional finish.
The Singer Futura Quartet definitely provides excellent value for money especially since it englobes four different functions in one single machine. Its heavy-duty interior metal frame can sustain quite a lot of wear and tear, while allowing you to use it on an everyday basis. Packed with additional amenities like dual accessory storage trays, it is covered by a 25 year warranty.
