Singer & White Card, Serial & USB Port Machines

S_5939_157
There are several procedures to follow for Singer Futura embroidery machine set-up. After connecting the embroidery unit, double check that the bobbin winder is dis-engaged (in the left position) and the buttonhole lever is pushed all the way up. Make sure that the needle is in the highest position by turning the handwheel toward you and stopping at the top. It's important to follow this sequence: Turn on the Futura machine WITHOUT any hoop attached. (You must always turn on the machine without any hoop connected.) This allows the embroidery unit to move. Next attach the desired hoop. (This is when the software reads which hoop you have on the machine.) Open the program. Open desired pattern. Transmit to machine.

Why do I need to have my sewing machine serviced?

There are many moving parts in a sewing machine and if it moves, it needs lubrication. These days many of the moving parts are housed with computer circuit boards and wires around them. Our Sewing machine technicians are factory trained to maintain and service computerized sewing machines.

For best performance and years of sewing, our technicians suggest you have your machine serviced annually. Below is our 24-Point Tune-Up Checklist and a list of Sewing Machine Performance Tips that our technicians suggest between services.

Sewing Machine Performance Tips:

Keep your machine covered when not using it. Household dust, lint and pet hair can enter your machine in one of it's many openings causing all types of problems.

Keep your machine away from direct sunlight, high/low temperatures and humidity.

Use the right needle for your project and change your needle every 3 to 4 hours of sewing or after every other project. The needle is the major culprit for most sewing problems.

Use good quality thread.

Use bobbins made specifically for your machine and make sure your bobbin thread is wound tight and no loose threads are hanging.

DO NOT SEW OVER PINS! Your needle may break, you could damage the hook or pieces of the needle could fly up into your face.

Do not use canned air on your machine or blow into your machine. The lint is just being pushed further into the machine and you are spraying moisture into your machine which can cause corrosion or damage your circuit boards

Clean the bobbin area frequently. Refer to manual for instructions.

Have a 24 Point Inspection completed, at a qualified repair center, on your sewing machine once a year to keep it performing like new for years to come.
Extended US Warranty: 30 Days labor on defects in materials and workmanship.
Non-US Warranty: 30 days parts and labor.

Although using a Bernina 1008, most of the information applies to most sewing machines. All sewing machines do better with a little bit of ‘TLC’. Just a bit of a clean up and a drop of oil every now and then does wonders. Keeping your sewing machine clean and lubricated will reduce the wear and tear and keep everything running smoothly.

15 Reasons Why a Sewing Machine Needle Breaks by Sewing Mastery, Heirloom Creations
A sewing machine needle can break for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is operator error and sometimes it can be the wrong needle for the fabric. If you have experienced a rash of broken needles within a short amount of time, see if one of the following situations relates to you and learn how to overcome the problem.

Thread Catches on the Spool
Some thread brands have these lovely thread holders notched in the edge of the spool. Handy, yes, but if the thread spool is laying on its side it can catch in the groove, pull the thread tight and SNAP the sewing machine needle. To avoid this, be sure to stand this type of thread up using a vertical thread pin.

Thread Wraps Around the Spool Cap:
For threads that need a horizontal spool pin and a spool cap to hold them in place, the thread can get caught between the thread spool and the cap. Though a spool cap is necessary to keep the thread in place, it must be pushed into place so there is no gap for the thread to catch between the two. This is one of the reasons I prefer using a thread stand.

Whitening Your Yellowed Vintage Sewing, Serger, Embroidery, Quilting and Knitting Machine Plastic ABS Parts! (RetroBrite) This is a video demonstrating how I have whitened some ABS plastic pieces of a vintage knitting machine that had become yellow with age and exposure to UV light. This is the RetroBrite procedure, which you may have seen being used on old video game consoles, sneakers, computers, and other older ABS plastic products. Works very well, is inexpensive, and really helps restore these old beauties to their former glory.
