Singer Quantum XL-6000 Threads

lasmtNovember 4, 2005

I just updated to a Singer XL-6000. Oh my I made a few assumptions along with a few wrong advice turns by the dealers. Still here I am with this awesome machine. Not your lightweight POEM of lore. Not as intuitive as the POEM ran under dos and early windows updates. So it's not easy to get started and running. No classes up here in our rural area. Hundreds of miles from nearest dealer and they don't carry this machine. So feel free to make postings if you use this machine with any hints as to what works and why for you. I'm searching for tuturials now. Will download the Singer site one for this machine in hopes it helps. Also opted out of expensive Compucon-singer softwares. Going with PE-Design 6. Then it's tutorial at and the Vector drawing program they also carry. The last item is not needed. I picked up a converter program on ebay from the developer. Though some commercial designs provide you with a convertor you can take advantage of which I have. (They sell in PES for example but I need Singers XXX and the converter they attach does this.) Now I'm ready to convert my own orginal designs or any commercial designs for just about anyones format to use with the Singer XL-6000 all under 100. No expensive card reader writers are needed, no expensive digitizing programs either. The PE-6 program which is available from ebay for under 50 along with a converter program usually under 50.00. Any experienced Singer Quantum digitizers insights that are willing to share we would all appreciate. Thanks and always think outside of the box...ALWAYS:)))

I just got a 6000 for Christmas. I was so happy to find your post. I couldn't quite spring for the $850 digitizing software from Singer. I don't know how the PE Design-6 software can be so much cheaper, but I am willing to play with it to see what it can do. Thank you for the tip!

I'll be happy to learn more.

My machine instruction manual says to use 40 wt. rayon thread, but the lady at a local sewing store says that poly is OK. Have you discovered any sigficant difference?

Thank you.
