Singer Futura CE 100 Embroidery Machine Software/Drivers?

November 28th, 2011 1 comment

Does anyone have a copy or digital copy of the Singer Futura CE 100 program with drivers? I received a Futura as a gift but the person that gave it to me couldn’t find the software. I have the Tutorial DVD and the Bonus designs CD but not the main program cd. When I contacted Singer they wanted me to pay $100.00 to replace it. How could they charge that much for something that came free with the machine and is needed for it to even work? Singer support SUCKS!!!
If someone finds the software a link would be helpful.

One question: did you even try to find support at a yard goods store?
craigslist? ebay? Downloads from the manufacturer? I just tried the
Futura website and the have the installation software for free! Try registering the machine before you start complaining and whining.

How do I put embroidry designs on the PED Basic software that I bought?

I just bought a PED Basic and I can not figure out how to put any designs on it. I would also like to know where I can get free embroidery designs online. Thanks

Don’t know what sewing machine this goes with-but with mine you load the software program that comes with it, hook the box up to your computer, either scan clip art into the program or import it. Clip art should come on your screen. Keep reading your instructions.

Type embroidery designs into a search, there are lots!

Can try to help more, if needed.

Where can I find a program that I can download for free that organizes embroidery designs?

I have been using the catalog xpress by ann the gran but my trial ends soon and I don’t have the money right this second to buy the program

Check Search for your program. They have a lot of freeware and shareware there.

On Brother’s SE-270D Embroidery, how do you evenly space letters 45-70? Also, how do you center a word?

November 24th, 2011 2 comments

I just bought an embroidery and I figured out how to write a word with the 4 printed fonts but I cannot figure out how to center it onto my fabric? It says to use embroidery sheets. Do I need to use that and what is that?

Also, for the cursive feature on #45-70, is there a way to type in the word on the machine or do I have to eyeball that with each letter? Does the cursive section only have one size?

Lastly, if I’m trying to find a free ballet, hawaiian or a different letter font on the internet to download, do you have an easy way to find it?

i have a brother machine but it is a ult2002d so i can’t specifically answer your question. there are soooooo many yahoo groups dedicated to machine embroidery. i looked up a couple of the for you and there are 2 that are just for your machine. the people on these groups are wonderful and will walk you thru every step of the way. here are the links.

as far as downloading designs from the internet i’ll give you a few sites has a sale every week where she sells 5 different fonts for only $3.00 has all kinds of free designs
and my favorite site is">Designs by SiCK Embroidery Library
they give away 49 free designs a day and the membership to their site is very reasonable.

these are just a few to get you started. if you have any other questions just e-mail me, i will be more than happy to help.

have fun.

Looking for embroidery machine?

November 24th, 2011 2 comments

i am new to this whole embroidery machine thing so i dont know anything yet. i am looking to buy a machine so i can add designs to my own creations that i started for my kids. i want to monogram but also do those cute little designs for cheering, fairies and trucks and cars, things like applique. im not doing quilting and i already have a serger and a sewing machine. so this would be all it is used for. will make several items but dont want to buy a $1000 machine until i get into making my money back.

can you give me a run down on what i need to look for.
i dont like the cards that you have to buy for certain designs. i would like to find clip art or free designs online and send them to my machine through usb port or something. also handmade designs maybe that i can design myself. is there accessories i would add to do all these things or would a certain machine have it all.

also what about the thread. i would like it to have multicolor on one design but i think only the large industrial machines do that.

In order to get a machine that will transfers via an USB port, and create your own designs or even use clip art you will end up spending $1,000 or more.

The Brother PE II has the USB option.

To create your own designs is another heap of money.

You cannot just download clip art and sent it to the machine. It has to be digitized in a machine embroidery format.

To do this you have to purchase digitizing software. This can cost $300 and up.

Forget the cards, they are practically obsolete – almost every designer has the option to download directly from their site.

Embird is a popular software that many people use for digitizing.

You start with Basic Embird, and then add plug-ins (digitizing it one) as you learn and want to expand your talents.

You can do just as well with the $500 dollar Brother at Walmart or Costco and use an reader/writer unit and rewritable memory card, which you can get for just over $100. With Embird, that is still around $1,000.

There are many free embroidery designs you can download from machine embroidery sites without digitizing your own. You would still need the USB or a reader/writer and card.

Thread – There are stops already in most designs and this is where you change colors – you can use any color you want.

Editing software (Embird Basic) can be used to add stops where you want them for color changes.

About the only thing the industrial or professional models can do is work faster, using multi needles and multi spools of thread – the design colors stitch out the same on the home version or or pro version.
