    you might want to google those 2 models? I'm not sure if either of them do embroidery? the 6000D does do embroidery.

    They do have a lot of decorative stitches, that probably include a font function, but I'm not sure that either actually embroider? just for research you could go to the Brother website and check out the different machines. I have the smallest combo machine, the SE350, and I love it.

    I have the Brother 6000i and it doesn't have an embroidery feature. But it's great little machine for the money.

    I have the 6000D (Quattro) and love it. It is pricey, but worth it. Does embroidery and is much smarter than I am. You do have to be computer literate to operate it, and I will never figure out all that it does if I live to be 100. But it has the embroidery you need, and sews like a dream. Overkill if you only want to do casual embroidery. I think the 6000D is already outdated, and the software updates Brother keeps coming out with are very pricey.

    I also have the Quatro and yes it is pricey, but worth every penny. It does all you ever want it to do and more. The possibilities are endless with it.

    my brother cs6000i recently died a very painful death. Repairman says that for casual sewing, the brother is ok, but for heavy duty sewing like I give mine (piecing, fmq, binding) that they will not hold up for long. Please be careful in your choices and do your research. I ended up buying a used Janome 6600 and am amazed at the difference. Good Luck in your search.
