Totally love it

By 

from Mayer, MN

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

I've had my XL 6000 for 18 months now, and totally love it! The embroidery is beautiful, and it sews like a dream. I bought this machine to replace separate sewing and embroidery machines. I love the large embroidery field on the Singer, and the fact that it comes with 3 sizes of hoops, including one small enough to hoop hats and socks. It actually threads the needle, from the top of the machine through the eye of the needle, automatically. The thread exchanger allows you to "stage" or set up your next thread color in your embroidery design, it cuts the current thread, re-winds it onto the spool, and threads the next color automatically. If you run out of bobbin thread during embroidery, it stops, rewinds the bobbin, then continues exactly where it left off after the bobbin finishes winding. You can also set it to automatically cut your thread at the end of a seam, which is truly wonderful for quilters. I haven't even discovered all that this machine can do yet! The only downfall in buying on-line rather than from your local dealer is lack of hands on training. The manual is a little difficult to follow. I haven't found any video or on-line lessons, but I'm still looking.

The Singer Quantum XL taught me how to sew.

By 

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

I almost didn't buy a Singer.  I had heard they had become foreign owned and the quality had dropped significantly.  I took the advice of my favorite sewing store owner and bought it.  I haven't been disappointed.

I had no clue how to sew embroidery.  I am an old quilter.  I would never dream of machine quilting.  I did machine quilt a couple of baby quilts and was pleased.  The embroidery fits in nicely making quilt blocks.  The quality of the embroidery, of course, depends upon who designed it.  Stick with the quality stock of embroidery patterns; there are many suppliers.

My only "wish" is that the Quantum XL 6000 had as larger hoop surface like some other manufacturers (ex. Bernina and Pfaff).  The Singer has an adapter stand type thing to make a larger sewing surface.  I bought it but it was too awkward to bother with.

I've had this machine for a few years now and will probably buy a Singer again,

I havn't found a project that I couldn't tackle with it.

By 

from Butler, PA

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

   I have  3 sewing machines and this one is by far my favorite!  I have made and altered lots of clothes made several quilts (including the quilting) and embroidered on countless shirts, bags, and home decor items.  The XL-6000 came with a small hoop, a 4x4 hoop, a 5x7 hoop, and a continuous hoop for embroidering borders.  The embroidery functions are very easy to set up and run.  The ability to connect to the computer makes the number of designs available to choose from endless.  To top it all off  it is very durable.  I have had this machine for several years during which time I have used it almost daily and I have NEVER had a problem with the machine.  Everytime I turn it on it runs just like it should.

Quantum XL 6000 Truly love this machine, not the manual.

By 

from Chester, SC

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

I purchased the Quantum XL6000 machine in March  2008 and love it. I had trouble in the beginning getting it to work with Vista. I ordered a new cable to connect the computer to the machine and no problem since. Sews out beautiful designs and love the endless bobbin. True the manual is not user friendly but with some time and practice I figured it out. Would love to find some videos. The machine is a very strong machine, does not seem like a plastic box as some of the others I tried. October to December the machine was use almost daily, I made gifts for everyone on my Christmas list, no problem. The Quantum XL 6000 is a wonderful machine to sew on. The designs are easy to down load from the internet and sews out beautifully. A friend has a very pricey machine but she is totally amazed at the features of the XL6000. The endless bobbin is really nice, so is the continous hoop. The multihooping feature lets you create larger designs, about 10"x18".  I would recommend it to anyone that loves to sew and create unique items or gifts.

like it for sewing but emb has broken 2s

By 

from Arvada, CO

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

I worked for Singer a few yrs ago and purchased because of price and versabilty.  At first I loved it.  But first I had trouble with the bobbin winder and had to get fixed. There must of been close to a full spool of thread wrapped up in it.  Then it would just stop moving.   I got fixed for about 200 bucks it worked about a month then the same thing happened again.  I do also have a 1000 and love it.

Great machine to start with and become a seamstress.

By 

from Groveland, MA

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

 

 

This machine gave me no trouble at all making Christmas presents for 18 people this season.  The only drawback was when I was trying to sew with a 300 weight fleece.  I was sewing a hat that required 3 layers to go through and that is difficult for any machine but I did it.  The trick was to go very slowly.

When you hear the name "Singer", you immediately think, "sewing"

By 

from Osseo, MN

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

I decided it was  time to trade in my old workhorse embroidery machine for a top of the line **Singer Quantum XL6000**. I had been drooling over it for some time, It has state-of-the-art, upgradeable features.  Some of the featuers I was drooling over included the . Must-have features of an automatic thread exchanger that rethreads the machine between the two color thread spools eliminating the need to rethread after every color change. A continuous hoop that creates perfectly aligned borders for any desired length. You can create large (10" x 18") embroidery patterns by using the multi-hoop embroidery with fabric positioning system  

The machine allows you to expand your creative potential with 12 feet including the overcasting, blindstitch, zipper, invisible zipper, rolled hem, decorative stitch, cording, embroidery, even feed, buttonhole with underplate, transparent buttonhole and standard feet. The conversion tool offers easy access to embroidery designs on the Internet, disk or CD. Plus, you can download software upgrades from the Internet as they become available. Embroidery unit with case

When you hear the name "Singer", you do immediately think, "sewing". That's because the Singer Manufacturing Company has been in business since the mid-1800s! And Singer's spirit of practical design and creative innovation continues with this new state-of-the-art embroidery machines.  Now if Singer would just add the multi needle feature it would be perfect!

Comments about Singer Quantum Computerized Embroidery & Sewing Machine:

The SINGER© XL 6000 sewing and embroidery machine is truly the ultimate in sewing. Use the thread exchanger and embroider with continuous thread changes. Make borders with ease using the continuous hoop which is included. Instructions are now a pop up on the screen and much easier to find and understand. When you run out of bobbin thread the SINGER© XL6000 sewing machine will rewind the bobbin right off a spool and thread automatically and continue to sew. No other house hold embroidery machine has these great features plus a large hoop, the ability to do multi-hooping, built-in embroidery, lettering and more. 

The SINGER XL 6000 comes with a great warranty package. 5 years coverage on all electronics and one year free labor at no additional cost. You do not need to take your machine to the dealer that you purchased it from you can take it to any  SINGER warranty service center where trained mechanics are ready to help you if you need service,  I could not be more pleased then I am with my Singer machine.
