So I'm thinking I want an embroidery/sewing machine combo. I don't have a bunch of money to spend, but have found a few in the 4 to 500 dollar range. From what I'm understanding though, they have a very basic software package and you have to purchase software that could be several hundred dollars. Is that true or am I misunderstanding?
Can you download patterns to the software that comes with the machine?
I have been looking at Brother and Janomes.
