Now it's up to you. Don't you love using the start / stop key when embroidering ? You'll find it just as valuable for traditional sewing. Simply unplug the foot control and press the key. For the next time. Unlimited memory capacity. Save to the machine or to an optional card. Now you can better organize your files by assigning a name. The names are then automatically alphabetized – so convenient. Easy to navigate. The large, color LCD touch screen guides you through. Whether it's information, instructions or advisory messages, everything is simple and clear, right in plain sight. The tools you need. Need help laying out your embroidery ? Use the design and hoop templates included with the 8600. The templates along with the hoop positioning keys assure perfect design placement. Look how easy ! Pull down the lever, position the thread and the needle is threaded. Works first time, every time. Great for all those color changes. Pick and choose. Want to use the fish but not the background ? Just touch the screen to skip over the colors or parts you don't want. You'll even see the screen recalculate the real sewing time. It's all there ! Smart and informative. No separate unit to attach, the carriage is built-in. One minute you're inserting a zipper, the next you're embroidering. And the feed dog adjusts itself to the task automatically. Everything's set, but the machine won't sew. What happened ? Did you lower the presser foot ? Did you thread the machine ? The Xplore 8600 will let you know ! Ready to Xplore ? Have some fun. Come explore all the decorative possibilities. Choose from cross stitches, quilt stitches, heirloom stitches, florals, satin stitches, a comprehensive alphabet. Looking for more? Simply switch to embroidery mode and you're ready to embroider a built-in design or alphabet. An elegant way to say, " It's mine ! " Two or three letter monograms are so easy to embroider. You can add a classic frame and even encase the monogram within other designs. Or if you want to embroider your entire name, select from Gothic, Script or Cheltenham fonts. All of these styles are built-in, ready to embroider. Recipe for success. We've given you the standard version of the stitch. Now it's up to you to personalize it. Elongate satin stitches up to 5 times their original length. Use mirror image to flip stitches for a different effect. And, of course, you can change the width and length of any of our stitches. What delicious ingredients! Just the way I want it ! See it all come together before embroidering. Arrange one or more designs in the window with the drag and drop feature. Take it a step further and use resize, mirror image, face to face or rotation to refine the components until you're pleased with the results. Be creative with the free arm ? Yes! Save all your thread and fabric scraps. Sandwich them between layers of wash-away stabilizer, and sew continuously around the free arm to weave unique, custom-made fabric for decorative accents. Another thought – use the optional free arm hoop to embroider cuffs and pant legs. Torn seams, missing buttons ? As creative as you are, sometimes you still need to be practical. Reinforce belt loops with sturdy bartacks and pleats with arrowtacks. Make durable buttonholes and securely attach the buttons. Of course these elements can be creative as well. Sew buttons around a pocket area. Instead of a zipper, create a lacing effect with eyelets. Anything goes.
