LOVE THIS MACHINE. I HAVE MADE SOME BEAUTIFUL EMBROIDERY PROJECTS. I HAVE BOUGHT PATTERNS OFF OF THE INTERNET WWW.EMBLIBRARY.COM THAT WORK PERFECT WITH THIS MACHINE. THE PLASTIC THREAD HOLDER NEEDED TO BE SANDED SMOOTHER TO ALLOW THE THREAD TO ROTATE. TURN OFF COMPUTER FIREWALL WHEN SEWING AND IT WORKS GREAT! MADEIRA AND MELROSE THREADS RUN SMOOTHLYIN IT.

If you follow all of the instructions from singer and always start your embroidery at a slow speed you will have no problems. This machine is so easy to operate and I look forward to the many creative ways I will use it. Applique turned our lovely. Use the bobbin fill not standard thread when embroidering. The only reason I give it 4 not 5 stars is because it has to be plugged in to a computer to embroidery and I find the bobbin winder doesn't work quite as smoothly as my other machine. I also am not a fan of the thread spool laying on its side, I find I have to watch close for hang ups but use of the netting on spool greatly reduced any problems. (Posted on 6/10/2015)

I have owned a Singer embroidery machine for 12 years, and have never had as many problems as I have with this one The troubleshooting guide does not cover all of the problems and specifics to this machine. I have been an advid seamstress for 30+ years. The embroidery feature is horrendous to work with (i.e. it should not involve so much to get the tension set on a new machine, in fact it should not be a factor at all). I have had my machine for 6 weeks and still have not been able to get the tension set so that I can even use this machine. I will be returning it and looking elsewhere for something more user friendly! (Posted on 2/28/2015)

I love this machine. There is so much I am able to do on it. Threading is a breeze. Easy to choose decorative stitches, adjust tensions, widths and lengths of stitches. Just started embroidery features and had no problem catching on. I was even able to convert a clip art file to embroider. Well worth the money I paid for it. Thank you Singer for an excellent machine. I have retired my Singer 603 machine. Perhaps my grandchildren with use it. (Posted on 2/12/2015)

""This is my first embroidery sewing machine, and I had no idea what I was getting into when buying it. It is not a beginner machine. Being a computer and technology enthusiast, I figured it would be rather easy to watch YouTube, find examples and make cool embroideryÌ¢‰â‰ã¢s. It has not been that easy. First, the machine is very picky. Wrong tension, stitch length, bad embroidery conversion, setup problems, and the occasional whim of god cause the thread to start getting tangled under the fabric. The machine does not detect tangles very well and will cause it to quickly jam. I have broken needleÌ¢‰â‰ã¢s 4-5 times and damaged the Ì¢‰âÒBobbin caseÌ¢‰âÂå badly. One time like a saw, the thread etched into the side of the plastic bobbin case causing damage. Even though it is computerized and automated, you Must watch over the machine the entire time its running and stop it in a hurry when you notice something is wrong. Pay attention to the manual and how different items work. Make sure you use the proper oil and oil where needed (such as the bobbin case). Other than these items, the machine has wonderful features. The software is rather easy to work with if you know computers. The large work size is a plus. Feature wise (Posted on 2/1/2015)

I've had my machine for about a month now. I got it because I wanted a bigger embroidery field and for the endless hoop. I'm working on an Halloween embroidery project right now. I've worked on about six different designs and had my thread break a couple of times. I moved my thread to a stand and changed my needle. So far everything is working great. I already had a embroidery machine and loved it but wanted something bigger. After reading reviews from other singer embroidery machines both good and bad, I decided to give it a try. Joined a Facebook group and watched a lot of videos. Love my machine, very happy that I purchased it. The price is great. I bought a referbished computer to go with it for less than $300. The software is easy to learn, I haven't done anything with the autopunch yet. Like that I can stop when a thread color is done, and the next day I can go to the next color. Would recommend.

""This sewing and embroidery machine can do everything. I'm a fairly experienced sewer and I enjoy being challenged; not only with projects, but also with my machine. The xl-580 does just that and the whistles and bells will make it so I'm learning for a long time. The above said, the customer support line reps are terrible. (Not exaggerating.) after being on hold for 45 min +, you get a rude person who talks like you're wasting their time. They're condescending and rude and when they do offer answers to your problem, they do a great job at making you feel like a complete idiot who probably shouldn't own a sewing machine. I was hesitant to write this review because If I was the only one who experienced this, well, it would be me that was the cause. However, every single new singer owner who has attempted to receive help from these reps that I've spoken with has had the same experience. The one adjective that three people have used is that the reps are"" (Posted on 12/1/00-1)
