    New Machin

    I have A Singer CE-100 which has served me well. I recently had to purchase a new computer which runs Windows 10. The CE-100 doesn't work with Windows 19. So I guess I'll have to purchase a new machine. I've been looking at getting another Singer, not sure which one; but have seen the Brother 800. Does anyone have this machine? And if some one does have it, is it a good machine? I don't mind an embroidery only machine, but an affordable sewing embroidery machine is not off the table. Thank you, in advance, for your input.

    What are you using the computer for with the embroidery machine? Design transfer?

    Most machines can use the USB for design transfer.

    When I upgraded from WP to Win7, my design software was not compatible and I had to upgrade, including the card that goes in my [1980's] machine. I only wish I had a machine that takes USB!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    My brothers machines which are now considered older used a different 'card' system. Not a USB. Brothers has a proprietary software and card but there was a card reader and software that could read/write that fit the machine. I could not get the Brother's software to work with windows 10 but could get the little Max to work with my machines so that is what I am using now. I also have a great software package, digitizer software, that allows me to not only compose my own designs but edit others. Between the 2 I have been able to keep the embroidery functions of my older brothers machines working just fine. Brothers has an inexpensive machine that is available at Walmart that now uses a USB port for importing designs. Just depends on what you are using your machine for. It is a great little model for regular sewing too.
