    I tried this machine out today. I am in the market for a new embroidery machine (the other brother i have is SE 350 and it was a floor model (so it took a beating)

    Anyone have this machine?

    Pro's/cons??

    I have an Ellageo and love it. My only complaint is that it winds the bobbin funny and sometimes causes jamming in the bobbin area. I bought one of those little bobbin winders and that solved the problem. Babylocks are a wonderful machine and will really take a beating. My daughter has a Babylock commercial embroidery machine and she has just run the dickens out of it and it never fails! The stitches are very nice and even and it has lots of great features.

    I do and I love mine....I have the ese2 version....the only problem I have is it has a left needle and middle needle position but no right needle position - my singer has all three....

    sometimes I get thread snaps if I haven't threaded exactly right but I've had mine for about 5 years and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

    I have had an Esante for almost 20 years, I think. A long time anyway and it's been a great machine for me. It still embroiders nicely. Even the built-in designs are great. I love the thread-cutter and needle up positioning, which were fairly new features when I purchased mine. A friend also has a newer Babylock and loves it.
