Hello Sewing Enthusiasts,
Ms. Cahill, I have purchased three Singer machines from HSN: the heavy duty, the Athena, and the Plus One. I would like to know if there is a separate DVD that I can purchase showing the ways to use all of the presser feet that came with my machines. I did notice one came with the Plus One which aired recently. Unfortunately, I purchased my Plus One earlier this year and the DVD was not included. I would appreciate any help you can provide. I started sewing in my teens (I'm 73) on my mother's Singer treadle machine. I recently started sewing again after watching your demonstrations on HSN and I'm hooked again. I made aprons for my 7 granddaughters, curtains, place mats (from your sewing book), and am still sewing strong!! Thank you for your enthusiasm for sewing. It brought back my enjoyment again.
I have a singer machine model SCHOLASTIC . I need to know where I can get the manual, for some reason I lost ,mine and please H E L P.
I can not get the gathering foot to work I'm doing exactly what the instructions say it just won't gather It's a singer. And does anyone know where I can get the fringe foot or flower foot. I have 6 sewing machines 2 that embroider I don't need another sewing machine just to get the feet.
This message is for the person who is having problems using the NEEDLE THREADER ON A BROTHER sewing machine. I've had a Brother machine for about 3 years, and for half of that time I had problems using the threader. I finally noticed that when I pushed the thread cassette down with less force, the needle would be threaded. When I pushed it down quickly and with more force, it never would thread. I hope this will help you.
I hope a new brother sewing machine is in the works. I am waiting to purchase a sewing and embrodery machine from Brother preferably. I hope hsn has one in the works!
I am a quilter and in search of a long arm quilting machine. Do you think that any of your suppliers would offer a long arm machine complete with table for a reasonable price? Something that could be offered on flex pay? I have several different machines, but I dont have a long arm quilter which is perfect for working on large quilts. Flex pay makes it affordable. I have seen some nice machines for under $2500 which includes the table and the stitch regulator.
patty790 the athena 2009 has 30 built in stitches and the the stylist11 is actually like the curvy 8780 which has 227 different built in stitches. The athena is by itself where as the stylist11 comes with a 3-4 thread serger. The serger has improvements in comparison to the first stylist serger. You can go to Singer.com web site and compare the 2 sewing machines. Hope that this helps.
Oh Shucks Pottermom,
The software for the Futura is NOT compatible with Mac.
Hopefully you will consider purchasing a small HP laptop that you can devote entirely to embroidery. It is still well worth it when you consider the versatility that the Futura software offers compared to other embroidery machines at that pricepoint! Your question is appreciated!
Hi Luvprocaps, I just spoke with the VP from Singer and he told me that there were tables for the Quantum l-500 on the Way!!! Keep checking back on hsn.com in May. We're not sure exactly when the shipment will arrive but it is coming soon!
Thanks for asking!
Thanks for the info. I recently purchased the Athena 2009 from HSN and wasnt sure if the Sylist would be an upgrade. I think I will stay with the Athena for now! I already have a serger. I really needed the swift smart threading!
Thank you so much and have a great day!
Great Question! The Athena is Electronic and the Stylist is a computerized machine with a working memory. Athena has 30 stitch patterns, Stylist ll--has 225 built in patterns w/alphabet. The Athena has extension table and instructional DVD. The Stylist ll has mirror imaging, repeat pattern, needle down. BOTH models have swift smart threading, drop and sew bobbin and 15 specialty presser feet. You can view the specs on HSN.com to compare notes. Let us know which one you choose!
Does anyone know the difference between the Athena 2009 and the Stylist II?
I just purchased the 2 for one Stylist II and serger. I was very impressed by the futura but I can't find anywhere that says if the machine and software is compatible with a Mac computer. Please let me know. This may be my next purchase once I master the Stylist II and serger.
These machines are great I have the First Edition of the stylist. It it is a wonderful set. I'm going to order it not today though.I'm going to wait till september,if I CAN WAIT THAT LONG,(LOL).I love all the upgrades. GREAT BUY.
Wow, what a great deal with today shows. I already have the CE-150,SES-1000, and Singer 7470 along with a brother serger. For what I don't need the special 2 for one. But for any other person I really can say dont let this great deal go today! I have 5 Singer machines and they are the best! And you don't know how important and versatile is a serger until you have one.
I love, love, love when you are on HSN. I own several different machines that I purchased from HSN. My question is when will HSN have the extension table for the Singer QL 500?
Thanks ! I just might order next time they do a big promotion
still reading reviews.
I'm so glad you have been enjoying your Melrose thread. HSN has decided to discontinue the Melrose Embroidery Value Packs but you will be able to order them from the national chain fabric store's website. If you do a search on your web, you'll see places where you can purchase it. Thank for asking!
The Quantum L-500 is a fantastic machine and I just tried the circular attachment. Yes, it fits! Purchasing optional parts exclusively for the L-500 may prove a bit challenging however, my bet is that there are other brands whose parts would fit. You may want to check with Pfaff.
luce66, I just saw your photostitch comment and can understand your concern.Having not seen the picture you are trying to stitch, The following criteria helps when accomplishing a photosticth. 1) make sure the backround is simple--plain solid in a contrast to the subjest works much better than landscapes and busy bushes.2) decide which technique you want to use before you go through the wizard windows. (4-color, multi-color or cepiatone)3) choose smaller settings for more details.
I have purhased a lot of the Melrose Thread,but most of it is gone. Does anyone know where to purchase more kits or individual spools? I really like this thread.
want to purchase quantum l 500 but does it sew circles ? Are there optonal parts to purchase?
