I so want an embordering machine, just to expand my creativity some what. But trying to rack my brain as how much will I use it, for the price of these machines, a person would have to justify and use it. Of course, I would be looking at a reasonable priced one, because who knows how much would I be using this. Any of you's that have embordering machine, what kind do you have? What features should I be looking at? Do you have to have special threads? Are you happy with the stitchin? By the time you buy stabilizers, thread, and designs is it expensive to do? I have no trouble buying fabric and anything to do with quilting, but with this machine I question myself.
