Pics of all your handiwork are greatly appreciated! :-)

    I use my embroidery machine all the time! Right now I am learning to machine quilt so I am making mug rugs and use my embroidery machine to put names on them and different designs, then machine quilt the rest.

    Just finished an apron for my cousin. Her favorite color is red. Used embroidery machine to embellish.

    I love my Emb machine but can't say it has really been worth the investment. I did a quilt with the blocks embroidered...looked great. Did it for a fundraiser. Mostly I do items for gifts or for friends...I think it's a personal choice but the machine isn't everything as you need a really good software.....but remember what I said I really do love mine!

    I love my embroidery machine. I made several quilts with it. I've made baby quilts for several people and what's nice you can personalize them. I've done tons of T-shirts. My grandson had a Minion birthday party and all the kids got Minion T-shirts. It was a big hit. You would be surprised with all you can do with a embroidery machine.

    I have a stand alone embroidery machine which I used for more fancy quilting (feathers etc) in blocks, then 'normal' machine quilted the rest. Also use it for patterns on table runners, baby quilts etc. It just makes a boring quilt special I think.
