Does my machine require a special bobbin and what type of thread should I use in my bobbin?

Yes, your SINGER® FUTURA™ sewing and embroidery machine uses a plastic class 15J bobbin. You can purchase this bobbin through your local SINGER® retailer. Never use pre-wound bobbins in your machine. When using the sewing side of the machine, you can use regular all-purpose thread in the bobbin, but when using the embroidery side, you will need to use what is called "bobbinfil". This is a finer weight thread that is ideal for embroidery. There are brands that are better than others; we recommend a spun poly bobbinfil sold under the Robison-Anton or Sulky brand name.
