General Features:

Three Stay-Bright LED Lights With lights on each side of the needle area as well as one light over the large surface to the right of the needle, it is easier to see your work. An illuminated sewing area makes all your sewing more precise. Sewing is also more pleasurable because the well lighted sewing area reduces eye-stain often caused by working in low lighting.
Automatic Needle Threader Effortless threading of the machine, including automatic threading of the eye of the needle!
Automatic Tension This system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever the type of fabric being used.
Top Loading Jam-Proof Bobbin System with Clear Cover This mechanism incorporates a rotating hook that ensures smooth, quiet jam-proof sewing. The bobbin loads from the top so it is easy to insert the bobbin. The clear cover makes it effortless to monitor the bobbin thread supply.
Optimum Power Control The Optimum Power Control provides precise piercing power when sewing multiple layers or dense fabric. The piercing power is the same regardless of sewing speed.
Drop Feed A conveniently located lever will lower the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, machine embroidery, monograms and attaching buttons.
Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter There are two heights to the presser foot lifter. The second height offers a 1/4" more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers or bulky fabrics under the presser foot.
Vertical Spool Holder In addition to the machine's horizontal thread delivery, a second vertical spool holder is provided at the back of the machine, specially designed for many of today's threads.
Self-Lubricating Because the machine is permanently lubricated, there is no need to oil the machine, and no oil gets on fabric.
Warning Signals Audible warning messages alert the sewer, ensuring trouble-free sewing.
Aluminum Frame The internal skeleton of the sewing machine. This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.
Redesigned Accessory Tray The machine's accessories are stored in the Removable Extension table. The covers for the accessory compartments have been redesigned as hinged covers, rather than removable lids. The covers are more secure and won't be misplaced.
Warranty Futura has a 25 year limited warranty, including 5 years on electronic components and 1 year on adjustments.
Sewing Machine Features:

Electronic Sewing Machine Push button stitch selection, and the optimal settings for length and width are automatically set when choosing a stitch. They can be overridden to personalize length and width choice.
100 Built-In Stitch Programs A large variety of stitches for construction, decorative sewing, heirloom sewing and quilting always ensures the perfect stitch for every project.
Built-In Stretch Stitches Specially designed stitches that add strength and flexibility to seams, especially useful when sewing on knitwear.
Built-In Quilting Stitch Create a hand-sewn quilted look with this unique stitch.
Twin Needle Function Automatically reduces stitch width on decorative patterns to prevent needle breakage when sewing with twin needle.
Built-In Heirloom-Friendly Stitch Selection Pin Stitch, Blanket Stitch, and Entredeux are a few of the popular heirloom stitches available.
7mm Stitch Width Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm. When sewing decorative stitches or satin stitches, the wide stitches are bolder and more pronounced.
One-Step Built-In Buttonholes Choose from 6 different one-step buttonholes. Buttonhole sewing is a one-step simple process that provides reliable results because the sides of the buttonhole sew the same direction to prevent gaps in stitching or fabric distortion.
Exclusive Buttonhole Underplate This is a SINGER® developed system that sandwiches fabric between a lower plate and the foot, to ensure perfect buttonholes on multiple layers of fabric. Effectively, this is like a mini-embroidery hoop in which the machine feeds the attachment, rather than the fabric. It makes creating buttonholes possible in places that conventional buttonhole devices cannot easily reach.
Programmable Needle Up and Down Select whether the needle is in up or down position when the machine stops. It is beneficial to have the needle stop in the down position when applique'ing, quilting or pivoting fabric. When removing fabric or picking the bobbin thread up, program the needle to raise to the highest position.
13 Needle Positions Needle position can be changed for individual projects, such as inserting zippers or cording and topstitching.
