  • I would love to have this sewing machine. I would like to make quilts to give to family and friends. It would be nice to have a beautiful machine like this with so many options of adding your own personal touch. I crochet and knit alot and make family and friends all kinds of things, but I have not sewed that much, but would love to start. I love quilts and I can't think of anything more satisfying than making them yourself. Thank You! Valerie Kinomoto

  • What wouldn't I try with the Singer Futura sewing machine. The name Futura says it all. It will be used often now by me, and by my granddaughter in the future. I enjoy sewing and making memories for my grandchildren, plus I love Singer.

  • Would love to win this sewing machine. Just lost my job and will be redoing alot around my house. At 59 1/2 I will not be that rehireable so it's time to change and personalize my house and make special gifts for friends and family. I have an old Singer foot pump it would be good to upgrade.
