Singer XL-400 Vs SEQS-6000 Comparison In Detail

Singer XL-400 Vs SEQS-6000 Comparison In Detail


I have always been a fan of sewing & embroidery combo machines. The main reason is because, you don't need a separate machine for regular sewing. You can do both regular sewing and embroidery on the same machine itself. XL-400 has been Singer's main machine in the combo segment. It was loved for its versatility. Now Singer has SEQS-6000 in the same segment. Since they belong to the same segment, it will be worth comparing them.

Singer XL-400 Vs SEQS-6000 - Major Feature Differences

Obviously the first difference you can pick is the color. Singer XL-400 comes in slightly dark cyan or something like that ( I am not an expert in naming colors. Am I color blind? lol). And SEQS-6000 comes in slightly dark green or something. Another difference is in the branding. XL-400 comes with 'Futura' branding and SEQS-6000 comes with 'Futura Quartet' branding. As a sewer, I really don't care about the branding as it is just some kind of a marketing strategy.

You might be wondering why this comparison is lagging like a documentary. It is because, I don't have anything else to say. Apart from the above said differences, both Singer XL-400 and SEQS-6000 are identical in features. The features are given in the table below.

Editor comment

Both Singer XL-400 and SEQS-6000 are versatile machines. The stitch quality is also very similar. One thing I really loved about these machines is the ability to do all the embroidery editing on a big laptop screen instead of a small LCD screen on the machine.  

Since these two machines are identical in features, there is nothing to choose between them. The choice is yours.
