    Thanks again but my problem does not appear to be due to the driver or Windows Updates. I am bale to operate Futura CE150 through PC for embroidery. The problem is that when I scan a clipart through the editing software, it scans the picture and brings shows the same on the editing software window. But when I save it only the background color is saved. Perhaps I am wrong in assuming that it will automatically convert the clipart into embroidery format (as the advertisement said). The manual and the futura support site is silent about whether it is possible or what kind of editing on the scanned picture is expected from me so that it can convert into embroidery. My basic doubt itself is whether the Editing software of Singer is capable of it or should I buy their Autopunch for the same. If I know this for sure I can buy it, otherwise it will be an avoidable buy. Thank you, Mr. Yalmer, once again for the interest you have taken in finding a solution for my problem.

Is the embroidery attachment connected while you are trying to straight stitch?

    YOu need to refer to the instructional manual in the back. See which red light is blinking on the stitch guide, look in the manual and fix the issue.

For the older Singer models (CE100, CE200) the digitizing software (autopunch) was only included in the 200 series. If they still have this concept I am afraid that you will have to buy the autopunch add on, that was (and most likely still is, since they sell it) the software that converted scanned or pixel graphic into embroidery files. Check if you have the autopunch feature installed (if it still works that way with the new software, choose "create" in the menu, autopunch should appear under a grey line with "design library" and "lettering" the two items above the grey line).

If it is not there (and the new version has not hidden it elsewhere) it is not installed and you will not be able to convert jpg's or bmp's to the embroidery format.

Sincerely yours

    Another thing: autopunch used to be on a separate CD, not on the CD that had the Futura software on it (at least my CE 200 came with 3 CDs, Futura software, autopunch, and extra designs). Check if it was included in your CE 150 and you just forgot to install it - it would be really a pity to have it double...

    You need autopunch according to the singer website.
    I called the toll free number at this sight and when I asked the question about using clipart, I was told you need autopunch feature.
    the website is
    There is a phone number at that website under customer support that has someone who can give you the explanation, if you wish to call them.
    Hope this helps.

Sometimes when that happens there is a very small piece of thread stuck where your thread runs through the machine... check to make sure thats not the case ... I had that happen to me ...even look on top where the thread runs through....

For old models CE100/200/200E Futura software could be upgraded to version 2.5 (ask you Singer supplier), since version windows 7 is supported.
For newer models CE150/250/350 SES1000/2000 software can be updated normally, since version windows 7 is supported.

Singer futura ce150: When I try to run my program on my computer it says failed to initiate security....what does that mean?

It means installation was not completed successfully. You need to uninstall Futura, reboot and install it from the beginning. But before that you need to stop the program that disturbs the installation process. It could be antivirus software or something like that, do not forget to disconnect from the internet before stopping antivirus.

Singer Futura CE100 Connect Error. Check that USB cable is connected and power switch is turned on.

I received an email back from Singer stating that it is not possible at this time to load the Futura software on a 64-bit system using Vista. I have emailed to ask whether it would load if the OS were XP, but I haven't heard back yet.

They said that they were working on finding a fix for this, but they aren't sure that they will since it's a hardware problem.

Singer Futura CE200 Software

If you use the standard FUTURA software. you will have to buy an add-on for the Software.

Singer offers an add-on called Hyperfont which allows to digitize any true type font on the computer.

The software is available in stores and online, but be sure to get the right version for your software. There are versions for the Futura CE150, CE 250 etc, and there are other versions for the CE100 and CE200, so be careful.

You should also keep in mind that although you can digitize any true type font with this software, not every font is suitable for embroidering and will stitch out nicely.

Sincerely yours,
