Got a great deal! It was $100 less than what I thought I'd have to pay and FREE SHIPPING! It should be here next week and I can hardly wait!
Now, if someone else owns this machine (or any of the PE 700 series), I do have some questions about what I need to go with it. I know I will have to use Brother bobbin thread (90 wt), but what about the top thread? And what is "thread conversion" software? I know I'll just have to go through a learning curve on this, but any tips to make it faster and easier will sure help. I'd like to incorporate this into my quilting, as well as making other items. It comes with 136 designs on it and I can download off the internet with a USB stick. It also comes with a 5 X 7 hoop. I'm thinking I may need the smaller hoops as well. The closest dealer is in Plano, TX, about 65 miles from where I live, so I'm doing everything over the internet.
