Getting to Know the Singer 5 Futura Quintet

Singer sewing and embroidery machines come in many varieties, so the differences between them can be confusing. Fortunately if you're considering the Singer 5 Futura Quintet, this handy guide breaks it all down.

Five Functions in One Machine

The major selling point of this machine is its ability to handle fashion, quilting, heirloom, embroidery and home décor projects without requiring a lot of setup or downtime in between. To facilitate easy use when you're appliquéing or embroidering, it includes a knee lifter and an oversized bed that gives you more accessory tray room and work space. At just under 9" long, the arm is also roomy enough for bulky materials.

While this machine is but one of many that feature digital control panels, its interface is a bit simpler than some Brother and Husqvarna machines in the same price range. The Futura Quintet also comes with a Drop & Sew bobbin that pulls the thread up on its own, and it boasts a simplified threading procedure. You can even use the independent bobbin winder to fill a new bobbin while you're sewing.

Easy Customization

Like other Singer sewing and embroidery machines, this model gives you plenty of options. You can create continuous borders and edgings using an endless hoop and no-frills stabilizer that lets you hoop your fabric in a single click. Once you've reached the end of the main hoop's 6.75” x 4” embroidery field, the machine can mark a matching point with a jump stitch, so it's easy to release, move to the next section of your material and keep embroidering without worrying about alignment.

Singer sewing and embroidery machines like the 5 Futura Quintet are compatible with multiple versions of Windows, including XP and higher. While the machine comes preloaded with 250 different embroidery patterns, you can connect to the computer with a normal USB cable for firmware updates or to upload your own personalized designs.

Finally, the Futura makes it simple to choose how you sew. Program settings like whether the needle rests in the up or down position, take advantage of electronic autopilot sewing, choose from around 215 stitches or pick from multiple single-step buttonholes. The embroidery software lets you rotate, enlarge, trace, view and change the colors of designs, so your big projects might just become a bit easier to tackle. While it's true that you'll find many sewing machines in this price range with similar capabilities, the fact that Singer continues to support this model with firmware updates and video tutorials makes this a nice choice for anyone looking to upgrade or get started.
