Wow, I am sure in the minority here. I bought a Baby Lock Sophia - the original, not the 2 - about 3 years ago. That machine is the bane of my existence. I have used the emboidery feature 3 - yes three - times only, and every time I have used it I have ruined fabric and wound up taking it back to my dealer. The tension is ALWAYS screwing up, whether I'm doing regular sewing or trying to emboider - and it is impossible to adjust to correct once it messes up. I would try to sell it, but could not take someone else's money and give them that kind of problem. I'm actually heading to my dealer tomorrow to have it adjusted (a relatively pricey endeavor after the warrenty has expired) again tomorrow. After that I will use it only if my big Janome (which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE) needs to go in for cleaning.
