Embroidery Machine Information

Good Morning to You All...

I am wondering if any of you could give me information, reviews or suggestions on an embroidery machine. I am looking to purchase one to do some things now that I have grandchildren. I have researched the internet and am totally confused now

I want to do some clothing and maybe some tote bags and lots of Disney things...

I love reading your posts and all of you are so talented so I thought where better place to get information than here.

Thank you so much for your help in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

I have the Brother 780D and most of the other Boutiquers have the Brother 770.

I have a couple of machines. Each brand of machine has it own format for embroidery. The Brother machines are the only ones with licensed Disney/Pixar designs. The best idea is to go to a site for each machine you might be interested in. Print out their info and then compare it.

Good luck. I love it!!!

I have two, both Singers. I have the Singer Futura CE250 and the Singer Futura Quartet FQ-4. I went with Singer because they can read the file formats from all other brands. You have to have a computer to use it with but the software makes it really nice to be able to change the size of the design, add or delete parts. I bought my FQ-4 on HSN for $700 as a package deal that retails for $2000. It has two hoop sizes, 4x4 and 6x10. My CE250 largest hoop is only 4.5x6.6 or so so having a large hoop for my shirts is nice.

i have a Brother pe500. Just got it in october and LOVE it.
not sure if you are still looking. It's so easy. The only downfall is that you can only embroider 4x4

all my machines are Janome, Brother is the only one with licensed Disney designs, Have heard lots of pros and cons to all the machines. GO to a shop near by and talk to the retailers, They will also be your repair and maintance shop. You need to like them and feel good about them, Then make a choice about your machine. Good Luck Its additive.

We have an Inbro single needle 12 colour self threading machine. It's a professional machine rather than a domestic. Unfortunately Inbro went bust a few years ago and we'll just run the machine until it gives up.
We used to have a Brother machine before though (2 in fact) and they're fantastic. Some people get on with certain machines though. Do you have a local shop you could go and have a look at a few different ones? Try them out and see what suits you
