For doing a manual monogram (by hand, not using embroidery unit) Follow these steps.

1. Put on the "N" foot ( This is your open toe foot, so you can see easier)

2. Select the zig zag stitch (Should be #4, right next to the straight stitch)

3. Hit the stitch adjustment button on the screen ( Lower left)

4. Set the width (Will have a zig zag "/\/\/\/" icon) to whatever size you would like (Usually 4.0mm to7mm)

5. Set the length (will have a line "---------" icon) to a very short setting

You're now setup for a monogram. You might like this video too for using your embroidery unit.
Let me know if you have any more questions,
Chris

I'm not pro at this, my wife is. However, try to make the letters a bit smaller in size and you should be able to get more of the letters to fit.

I have the Creative Sensation and want to monogram a letter in a circle. How do I do this? Does it have to be embroidered?


You could use an applique (satin) stitch freehand on your machine. But, it takes some practice with steady hands to get it to look nice.

In the video, she uses a heat bonded stabilizer. If you don't use a bonded stabilizer, you'd want to put the fabric and stabilizer in a hoop to keep the fabric tight. If you are going to manipulate the fabric manually, you also would drop the feed dogs.

Can this to freehand machine embroidery?


If you can drop the feed dogs (or have a plate to cover the feed dogs), the machine has a zig-zag stitch, and you have a darning foot or free motion foot, you can do free motion quilting, hand manipulated embroidery (monograms), and applique on a basic sewing machine. It will take some testing and quite a bit of practice. You can also use an embroidery foot to monogram and applique. You will want to sink the needle into the fabric at every corner and frequently when creating curves so you can move the fabric.

Search the internet for instructions & tutorials on how to set up your machine and the best way to accomplish what you want.

How do i restart monogram pattern when machine lost setting


If you don't have your user's manual, you can download it free from the Singer site. Unfortunately, though, while that info is in the manual, it's really not "put together" so it's easy to figure out. I'm going to assume that you were in the middle of sewing a monogram, and you had a power failure, for instance, which interrupted the transmission. Put the hoop with the project in it back on on the machine and open the Futura program. Retransmit the design, and in the machine navigator (the screen the pops up), use the arrow key on the right of the Send Block button to move to the block you were doing. Then click the Send Block button. Then go to the machine, and locate two buttons above the lit button (it should now be green). The first button directly above it is a reverse button--you don't want that one for this. The button above that is a forward or advance button. Press that button and keep your finger on it for 10 seconds or so, and when you take your finger off, you'll notice that it keeps moving forward in the block without sewing. Move to the area right before the section where you left off, and press that button again and it will stop. Now press the green button, and it will resume sewing where you left off. It's pictured on page 39 of your user's manual, and the PDF version is in a directory on your hard drive where your installation software is, under \manuals.

I bought the SINGER FUTURA XL400 in august. It sews,monograms an embroiders. Sews like a dream with no issues. The monogramming part has me at my wits end. It skips stiches, leaves big loops an looks bad...


Be sure to install a brand new sharp needle before sewing. Check that the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible. An embroidery needle or top stitch needle may help.

When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot before threading to insure the thread seats in the tension disk.

I would like to find a machine that monograms and does not cost over $500. All I want to be able to do is the traditional 3 letter monogram (larger letter in center) or a child's name, such as Charlotte...


My advice is to try going to a shop that sells machines and gives lessons for free. I bought from JoAnn's and they gave me lessons on it. I bought a Brother for $549 and I am not sorry because I actually know how to use it thanks to the girls at JoAnn's. I would not be using all of the features if I didn't have the hands on instruction. The manual is great for a refresher but nothing beats doing it and someone answering your questions. Think about it before you buy online, you may save a few bucks but in the long run you will be happy to have a relationship with people who care if you have a problem and can help you.
