Default Embroidery Machines Lets Chat & Have Fun

Hi,

If you have an embroidery machine please chat with us so we can help learn from each other. Please post what machines you have and what projects you are making. We would love to see pictures of your projects

This will be fun.

I have a Janome 10000 which I haven't started using yet so want to get it out and start learning to use it.

it reads just about every one of them.

XXX, PES, HUS, ART, etc.

the only thing you have to watch for is JEF - the newer models do and the older models don't

if you go to the futura website you can read all about it

I have two brothers, the 8500 and the PR620, I have been doing it for close to 16 years and do everything under the sun with them, I have the pedesign 7 program so that I can do my own designs but have a collection from the www.emblibrary.com site, it is a favorite of mine as a lot of my friends can attest to.

I have a Viking SE LE. Currently I am embroidering quilting designs on solids with batting and backing using variegated thread. They are cut into 8-1/2" squares and serged together like a rag quilt. Fun & Done!

Our embroidery group "Magic Machines" is starting the Summer Wine quilt by Jenny Haskins this month. I have already embroidered the first block.

I have a Janome 350E, just got it last October and haven't dont a whole lot on it yet. I just finished a hummingbird quilt that's on another thread. My DH got me magnahoops for Christmas, so now I can try to put something on the pashima scarves I found. I'm still looking around to see what editing software I want to use.

I have a Baby Lock Elegance 2. Haven't been able to do much since Thanksgiving. My mom had Hemorrhagic Stroke (brain bleed) and has been in the hospital ever since. Hope to get back to it soon though. A chat about embroidery would be awesome.
