I'm looking to upgrade my embroidery machine from the Brother SE350 which I have now.  I really want something that I can get free embroidery designs off the computer and transfer them to the machine:

(these for example:) http://www.embroiderydesigns.com/freeembroiderydesigns.aspx?searchtext=halloween

A couple I've looked at online are the Janome 200e, and the Brother PE770.  I'd like something in a similar price range.  So far all of my machines have been Brother or Singer machines and I've liked most of them other than my singer serger (the brother one is great though), and I teach sewing lessons on Viking machines which I really don't like.  I've never used a Janome so I don't know how it compares.
Are either of those good machines?  Or any other ones around the same price?   What should I ask santa for?

I have the Brother PE770 and have really enjoyed it.  I have also gotten a bunch of designs from that website.  The only problems I have had have been user error.  I am still learning how to match up the stabilizers with my material and designs.

The PE770 has been very easy to learn how to operate.  I have not taken a single class and I have had no trouble operating it.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

I have the Singer SEQS-6000. I load free & purchased designs from that site almost daily..tee hee.  I like the SEQS because it accepts almost all embroidery file types. I havent found a design yet that I wasn't able to download and edit.
