Well I got caught up in the release of the new Singer Futura Quintet on HSN. Needless to say I am sending it back tomorrow. I so wanted to love this machine, but it consistently comes un-threaded. I tried everything and then got online and read others were having similar problems. I did a quilt block today and it came un-threaded 7 times. It unthreads every single time the auto thread cutter is used. It is a mess with the embroidery as well, unthreads a lot and jams up. I had at least 3 broke needles. I just do not have the time to deal with those issues especially from a brand new, top of the line blah blah blah machine. I want an embroidery machine so if you have one you love please let me know and details would be appreciated. I am so ill about this machine. I have seen several posts about a "learning curve" that maybe but when you get a brand new machine you a least want to be able to finish a block or whatever with out a broke needle and re-threading it 7 times. Ok that is my 2 cents and it is probably worth less than that, but there it is! I am sick about it. I feel like I have wasted so much precious sewing time dealing with this machine, not to mention thread and fabric. Uggh! Lesson learned don't buy a sewing machine off TV!
