    Hi quilter's,
    I am new to the site. A baby lock allure is on the way to my house. I bought a used one. IT does not have a reader writer box. Does anyone know the details on how to download to an allure? IT has a memory card, I think. Hopefully the card already has designs on it. The man I am buying it from lost his wife. He is trying to explain what he knows about the machine. Lord wonder what I am getting myself into. I don't own an embroidery machine. So I need help. Can I have someone with a reader writer make a card for me?
    I love reviewing all the information and looking at all the beautiful works of are posted on this site.
    God bless you all.
    Thanks for helpful information. Happy Sewer.

    Hello! I am new to this forum. I signed up for the Doll Quilt Swap. I think it could be a lot of fun.

    I have been quilting for over 30 years. I am a huge fan of primitive style quilts (Jan Patek, Blackbird Designs, and anything Moda).

    Thank you for allowing me to participate.

    oops - I posted in the wrong place. Sorry!

    I have previously studied that website. Still don't know if I understand it all. Maybe I need a keeper. Not a new machine. Ha.

    Thanks for replying.

    Have a great evening.

    Thanks everyone. I have been looking at this site for a long time. Just never had the nerve to write. I feel like I know all of you from reading your remarks and viewing your quilts.

    I have an Ellure Plus. Mine has the USB so you can direct connect to computer to down load patterns. This is a pain because computer is in one room & sewing machine in another. I bought an Amazing Box Max. It has a card you download to from computer & then insert into side of machine. I really love my Max. Check the web for best prices. I bought mine from Allbrands.com out of Louisiana. You really need to find a local Babylock dealer & get them to check it out for you. Most of them will even show you how to use it. Good for them because you will want more hoop sizes & embroidery designs so it will benefit all of you. I really love this little machine. My first embroidery machine. Only drawback, it only goes to a 5 x7 or smaller. So I am upgrading to the Ellageo & trading this one in. It really is a easy machine to use. I have the embroidery down pat. The regular sewing bothers me. Had almost a year & am still learning stuff. If you have never machine embroidered before try & find someone to help you. Remember for every 10,000 stitches add layer of stablizer. If I can be any help just PM me & I'll do what I can.

    Debra,

    I don't have the machine yet. The guy who is selling it is going to throw in the pallette. It does digitizing. Whatever that is.
    So with the pallette, if I understand correctly, I can make my own embroidery designs.
    So do you like the the sewing part of the machine? Will it sew heavy fabrics ok?Does it have any quilting designs already programmed? I went to a babylock sewing center , the lady was not very helpful. I got the idea she wanted me to purchase the machine before she told me anything.
    So does a memory card come with the machine or is it purchased separately?
    I don't know what I am getting myself into.
    Can I talk to you separately or do we just talk through this forum.
    Sorry I don't know more about this.
    Oh the guy with the illure also has an allegeo. He is keeping it for his granddaughter.
    The feller in Lexington , Ky. with a sewing machine shop offered me great deals on machines. You might want to call him on the allegeo.
    Thanks for replying.

    If you are getting the Pallette that is super. That thing is very expensive. Almost as much as the machine, maybe more. I'm not sure if the Pallette comes with a card. Surely it does. Cards are about $69. to $99. depending on where you buy it. The machine only has some built in embroiderey designs & letters fonts. They are nice & will get you started. I have used quite a few of them. There aren't any quilt designs though. The sewing is OK. My problem was with decorative stitches. I really need to practice more on them. It sews denium ok too. If you will PM me I'll give you my email address & phone number if you want & when you get machine I can talk you thru some things. This lady really had some investments. The Elleago is more than $4000.00 & Ellure retails for almost $2000. 00 unless you can catch a sale. The Pallette depending on which one you get is way up there in price. You are getting a good deal. I will try & help all I can Deb
