    maybe just service that one for sewing , and get an embroidery only model that is higher end, either way expensive machines with computers need to be kept in good condition.

    maybe go for the brother quatro 6000, its expensive, but i have seen it in action, its really nice. I would get one if i could afford it. I think they run 8000. From what the lady at the show said the 1500 can do most of the same without all the bells and whistles runs about 2000. The duetta 4500 is also very popular. I wouldn't mind having one of those when my espire gets old. You would still be able to use all of your attachments for sewing from your other machine

    That looks like a really nice machine.

    Isn't Baby Lock related to Brother???
    Brother makes the sewing machines and sells them to babylock, and they put their name on it and they market it differently, like the qc1000 is the espire and the quatro 6000 is the ellisimo, the only difference is that brother has the my custom stitch feature that is only on their machines. Feet and attachments are all interchangeable
    Thank you. I tried looking it up and was unable to find what I was looking for. I was sure I'd heard they were basically the same brand.

    Thanks, but I am finished with Brother. I had some problems a couple years ago, and Brother's customer service was very bad. I have not had good luck with the Brother brand. :(

    I do like the way the SE-270D sews. Sew smooth. I like all the different stitches it does, too. It just really annoys me that it doesn't do all the pretty embroidery it's supposed to do. Oh, well. We will see.
