    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.

    I have a Bernina 630. I have really only used it for making my quilt labels. I have not taken the time to get all the software figured out to be able to play with the embroidery. When I got the machine, the em unit was not why I bought it. Eventually I want to learn how to do more with it.

    Hi, I have a brother SD270 disney embroidery machine.
    Is the PED basic easy to use with your machine? I was thinking of getting this because of price so I am hoping it will be all I need. The PED7 sounds great but I don't want to spend that much. I try sewing while I am babysitting my grandkids and it is a challenge That is why I love to embroider I can walk away except when my granddaughter decides to turn off the machine Haha

    I had a Babylock Ellageo for many years and recently sold that one and purchased a used Pfaff 2170. I did many embroidery projects with the old machine so I purchased on ebay one of those embroidery thread assortments. The old machine would stitch with anything. :D .

    I bought 3D Software (and got the free upgrade to 4D). Loved to software and decided to upgrade the machine to something that could interface with the computer. Love the new machine - but have found that it is very particular about thread (much like the Vikings which I sold). So much for all that thread. :cry: :cry:

    I have a Husqvarna but I have never learned how to embroider on it! I keep thinking I'll take classes (the closest one is 45 min. away) but I never do!

    I have a brother 270D that I started out with and now take that one to retreats and bought a 8500 pacesetter that I love. If I ever buy another one it will be with a 6x10 hoop. Sure wish I would have gone bigger first :roll: I did sweats for the GK for christmas, my absolute favorite are in/the/hoop projects...I'll enclose a picture of projects I did for guild members for christmas....

    Ok, I have a question for all you embroidery experts out there. What kind of stabilizer would I use with this? It's 100% rayon, texture and drape mimics pashima silk. If possible, I'd like to have a double sided design on the ends. Theorys, suggestions??
