After having my Singer Futura 200 quit on me, I considered having it fixed and keep it going for a while longer but then I saw the new Singer XL400 and the decision was easy. All the extras and added features and larger hoop. Its much faster and has speed control which a very nice feature when working with dense designs or heavier material. One of the first sewouts I did with the new XL 400 was a small blue willow design I will be incoporating into a quilt table cover for the kitchen ( a personal project)
New line of pillow cases I am excited about starting is Animals in Pajamas , designs I purchased online. I stitched this one today and on the new XL400 it stitched out in half the time the CE200 would have managed to do!! Amazing!
