Hi, I was wondering if you got a machine and which one? I am new to embroidery as well and am looking, I have been burned before with a singer futura, I broke the same week I received it. I want a good easy to learn machine that I can monogram and do appliques' for my 18M old! Smiley I'd love some advice. Thanks!

I have a Janome 350e that I love. This is an embroidery only machine. I chose this because I had a sewing machine that I love and I didn't want a multi purpose machine. To me, that was just one more thing that could go wrong!

The Janome 350e has two hoops - 5x7 and 4x6. It's super easy to use. It also has a USB port so that you can transfer designs onto the machine. The machine retails for $1600-$1800 new; however, you may be able to find a used machine for $700-$900.

When factoring in costs for the embroidery machine, don't forget that you will need consumables. Needles should be switched every 4-6 projects depending in size. You will also need embroidery thread and stabilizer. Wash away, cloud cover, and a spray adhesive are also very useful!

Hello all. Looks like the last post was summer of last year.

I am now looking into purchasing an embroidery machine for possible home business-based projects.

I was wondering what the best bang for your buck machine there is currently.

I'd like to be able to upload patterns from my computer and preferably use sizes larger than 5x7.

Thanks!

My wife loves her Bernina.  She had a 200 for years and upgraded a couple of years ago to the limited edition.  It is the Cadillac of machines and it does anything she would ever want.  She has a Viking and it just sits there watching her Bernina go to town.

I bought the art program to go with it and between us she has made some incredible presents for family and friends.  As soon as I get enough posts I will show off some.

This butterfly embroidery machine is highly rated and I have used it for my commercial embroidery business for years. http://www.butterflyemb.com/butterfly-single-head-embroidery-machine-b-1501.php I really like how easy it is to use.
