I will ck that link out and see what I can do. Thanks.
    Sorry. I can't help with the machine. I have a Brother 8500 Pacesetter that I bought used. I haven't sewed or did any type of embroidery with it. I've been tempted to sell it. I have quite a few other machines I could use in its place. Oh...the main reason I'm writing...I'm saving my money for Paducah too!!!! PADUCAH 2013!!!! LOL

    Good mornin' and Merry Christmas to all you folks on this board.....I am finally back to my computer--I got hacked (or something of that nature and have been locked out of my email, and thought that was the only way for me to get to you. But somehow, DD fixed me up with an icon on my screen that brings me up right now without all the hassle of going through email, etc. Now if someone can do the same for me with my Designer I so I can embroider--the only reason I bought it--which I have had for nearly 3 years now and have made maybe two things with a lot of help from a quilting buddy--help that I can never remember when I am in front of my machine trying to get it to do what I think I want it to do. ToniC, you tried once, but I am too thick headed to figure out the PM thing after the first round. Anyway, back to the subject at hand--keep the machine you have, tell the dealer to GTH, and work with your friends here on the board. They're GREAT...... Happy New Year to one and all--it is cold here in TN too--Love, Jo Ann
    Make every day count for something!

    I have a Janome 10001 and love it. What kind of problems are you having with your machine? Is it loading the designs from the computer or the actual stitching? I would definitely try to figure the machine out before investing in a new one. That's a great machine and once you get it going, you won't be sorry. I use Customizer software and it's great. I would be glad to help if I can.

    I have a 350E and also use the Customizer software. If I can help, I will, gladly. My machine isn't in that series, but the software is probably about the same.

    I found embroidery on the 350E very, very easy. In fact, I couldn't imagine it being any easier. I bought the machine used and the lady spent about 20 min showing me the machine and how it works and left her email address and phone number if I have any more questions. But it is pretty self-explanatory. I think that your machine, however, is more complicated, and thus leaves a person with a lot more questions!

    To answer your question...I'd attempt to learn how to use that machine, which is still selling for 2K than buy another one. Do you have the card you need?

    I don't know anything about this Brother stuff. But I do know this. I have a Pfaff sewing embroidery machine that I love! It took me awhile to learn how to use all the bells and whistles and then some.
    I think of buying a new one like buying a car. If I'm not satisfied with the one I have why would I buy another one of that brand.
    I totally agree with WeezyRider:
    If you do want another machine - go to every dealer you can find, sit down and tell them what YOU want to do.
    If they want the sale, they should take the time. They should also offer classes. If they don't, then move on. Everyone here has a favorite machine. The machines are good, but all dealers aren't. So if you want a particular machine and the dealer isn't helpful, doesn't matter how good the machine is.
    Life's too short and you need to make sure your money is well spent! Good Luck!!

    I got the Brother HE-1 as my Christmas present, i love it, i didn't want a bigger one, something easy and for small stuff and this machine is perfect, plus i could understand the instructions.
