Jan 2010 I bought a Babylock Crafters Choice which I really enjoy. My local Babylock dealer has the one time within a year trade up. So I was looking at the Ellure as I really like the larger embroidery field than I currently have on the low Brother machines I have. My thought...tell Mom, kids, man in my life ..anyone...just contribute $$ at Christmas to help me pay the difference to trade in the Crafters Choice and purchase the Ellure. First question...does anyone think that is tacky to ask for $$? 2nd...anyone have thoughts on the Ellure?
