SOURCE: What part(s) would I need to embroider baseball

It depends where do you want the embroidery to be.
If is on the front part of the cap there are two ways:
One is with sticky stabilize rmaking sure all the parts of the cap are laying flat on the sticky paper.
The second way is with a special cap attachment (sells for around 440) that comes also for the singer futura.

It must not be inserted right, check your manual and if you do not have it handy, go to and download one for free. You can cause real damage if it is loose, so be careful that something isn't broken and not letting it seat right.

Sewing machine skips stitches
1.needle inserted incorrectly--flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle--groove of needle faces away from the shaft
2.Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle. Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.
3.possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
4.blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
5.needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
6.incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
7.wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem--some can't--
8.size of needle & thread not compatible--
Using the wrong type needle can cause problems,,
A needle to fine for heavy fabric can bend or break when it hit's the fabric
And a too large needle can make puncture holes in the fabric and pull unevenly while stitching

I have singer XL 550 occur error cord 06 how to solve the broblem.

The error code means you have a problem with your feed step motor. I have included a link to the owner's manual. Page 31 shows what the error is. On Page 37 it shows you the electrical connections to the main circuit board. Before you go inside, be sure to unplug the machine. Look for the plugs that deal with the feed step motor and ensure they are plugged in properly. Check for dust as well. After that you need to take it to a repair shop.
