My 26 yo daughter has recently expressed an interest in buying an embroidery machine. I figure that's only a hop, skip, and a jump into sewing/quilting! I would love to go machine shopping with her, but she lives out of state now. I have always liked a stand alone embroidery machine (I have an old Deco 600) because it just seemed like a pain to attach/detach the embroidery unit, but then again I never actually have used a combo machine. She's asking about a combo machine now, and I'm curious about those of you who use them. Do you ever wish you had a stand alone embroidery machine? Thanks for your input!
