    Big Score, I can't stop smileing, Brother Innov-is 2500D

    About 3 weeks ago I went to a estate sale of a quilter. The quilter's Igrandaughter was selling most of the estate. I bought 40 yards of fabric, nice stuff. The gal was also selling an Innov-is 2500D. I knew what they cost, too much, but I did make a written offer of $500 because that was what I could afford. I know, even used, these machines sell for around $2000. Yesterday she called to see if I still wanted to buy it at my price, I was shocked but of course I want it. I picked it up today. This machine is even better than I'd hoped. I have only tried the utility stiches so far, I'm impressed. This is my "new" main machine. I hope to try the embroidery tomorrow after lots of reading. I have another embroidery machine, a Babylock, and it looks like a lot of the feet will interchange. I'm a happy gal!

    Wow! What a deal! Brother makes Baby Lock so your feet should work on both. I have the Brother Innovis 2000 which is the same machine without the embroidery part. I love my machine. Hope you enjoy yours.

    Congratulations! I just traded by Disney Brother with my mom and I got the best trade of all - her Innovis 4000D! I am having so much fun. I too have a Baby Lock Quilters Professional and now feel guilty with it sitting in the corner! Have fun!
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    What a deal . I had to pay full price for the 1500D but great machine. I'm always plugging Brothers even though I also have vintage which I use. depends on mood and location.
