1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Re: The "Which Embroidery Machine Should I Buy?" Thread on: September 06, 2011 04:16:24 PM
I have a Baby Lock Sophia and a Janome Memory Craft 11000SE.  Very different machines.  The Baby Lock was on sale for $800 when I bought it a couple of years ago.  The maximum size hoop is 5 x 7, and the machine tends to be a tad tempermental.  I have a friend who bought the top of the line Baby Lock, and she has mechanical problems with hers all of the time.  My Janome is awesome now that I have gotten over my deathly fear of adjusting anything to do with tension.  It has a much larger throat area, which is good as I quilt too, and the maximum hoop is 9 x 12 (I think).  I have honestly heard very little good about Singer machines with any kinds of electronics.  I have a gear driven Singer and I love it - it such a work horse!!  But electronically - no much good news about Singers.  As far as creating your own designs - I'm certain that you have to purchase costly programs like Design Gallery to do that.  But good luck in your search.
