Product review by Sally from Essex on Friday, February 8, 2013
I purchased this machine with the intention of using it for the embroidery, as I already have a sewing machine. Only received this on Tuesday but very happy with machine so far. Able to look through tutorial which is easy and takes you through the various functions and I am really pleased with the embroidery results. Did have a problem but this was soon resolved by using the helpline, where I was able to speak to someone direct and not have to go through an electronic switchboard. Starting out on embroidery? Then this machine is for you.
Product review by Ken from Thatcham, Berkshire on Thursday, November 15, 2012
This is an excellent machine. Modern sleek styling with real quality. Easy to use, good clear instruction book. really good value for money, large size of embroidery hoop very useful. Threads easy to load. Ordered one day delivered next, packaging brilliant. We all want a good deal with a good product and service. The machine has turned out to be far better than I expected. Great product, great service, would certainly buy from again.

Product review by Rosie Rabbit from West Sussex on Tuesday, April 17, 2012
I've never had an embroidery machine before and I researched a lot of them via the net and Youtube before deciding on the Futura and I'm very happy with my choice. It's easy to set up and within an hour I was sewing away on my first design. I like the fact that the screen is actually on my laptop and that I don't have to cope with peering at tiny one on the machine. The software is fairly intuitive and you can create your own unique design by manipulating and combining images.
Also the Futura can read designs in other sewing machine formats ie the jef format produced by Janome.
The threading of the machine has also been simplified - just one straight down channel for the thread.
I really like this machine and I think for an entry level embroidery machine it's unbeatable in value and performance.

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your service. I ordered a Singer Futura XL 400 on Tuesday and it was delivered on Wednesday. I really appreciated your emails and texts advising me of the status of my order (#700034255). I wish all companies were as efficient! I'll certainly spread the word about your company, good service should always be praised!
