    I think the price for this machine new is over $2500. That's a great buy! She definitely needs to sew on it before buying unless she knows the seller to be trustworthy.

    I think it would depend on what model the Esante is. Does it have usb capability or would a transfer box need to be bought.

    this is what she just emailed me.:

    There is a box with it that has a card reader with 4 slots. Model is ESe.
    The separate box is "The Amazing Box" Memory Card reader

    I have the Babylock Espire which is really the Esante without embroidery and I love the machine. She handles all types of fabric and all types of thread. No complaints. Love the one touch threader, needle down, great lighting, large throat and work table, smooth bobbin winder, clean drop-in bobbin......Can't say anything bad about it. Forgot to mention: She uses Brother accessory feet which are cheap compared to some.
