The Futura XL-420 sewing and embroidery machine is like having two machines in one! The basic Futura™ software is included on a CD, and once installed on your PC, you can choose from 200 embroidery designs such as floral, holiday, children, frames and more. Three hoops are included a large hoop (10" x 6") for embroidering large designs, a small hoop (4" x 4") for embroidering small designs, and an Endless Hoop (6.75" x 4") for effortlessly embroidering beautiful borders for projects like pillowcases, table runners, quilts and more. Your PC and the machine are connected via the included USB cable. Once you have selected your design on the PC, simply transfer the design to the machine and begin embroidering. In addition, there is a Multiple Hoop feature to create design layouts up to four times larger than the large hoop -great for home decor items like pillow or table runners, or for fashions and accessories as well as quilt blocks. When you're finished embroidering, the machine easily converts to sewing mode. There are 30 built-in stitches including basic, stretch, decorative and more. Buttonholes are sewn in one easy step, and there are 2 styles from which to choose. Threading is a breeze thanks to the SwiftSmart™ Threading System. The Drop & Sew™ Bobbin System saves time because it picks up the bobbin thread for you. Six StayBright™ LED lights provide lighting on both sides of the needle, eliminating shadows. Engage the Programmable Needle Up/Down to have your needle stop down in the fabric, which is great for applique, pivoting around a pocket corner or free-motion sewing. The Speed Control feature lets you set your machine's maximum sewing speed just the way you want it – slower for intricate projects like applique, or faster for free-motion sewing or long seams. Use the included Knee Lifter to raise and lower the presser foot so you can keep both hands on your project.
