Smile I'm so excited!!!!!

I bought a Brother Quattro 2 Sewing/Embroidery Machine today - and I'm SO excited!!! My other machine (a Pfaff 2170) is a great machine but I was unable to do large designs unless I used software to split them, which is way over my head, and I didn't want to have to do that with every large design (8x8) I wanted to stitch out. I want to be able to just load the design and go. The Brother has features and capabilities my Pfaff doesn't have. I spent time today becoming familiar with the sew functions, stitches, threading, etc. All the basics of the machine. Tomorrow I'm going to tackle the embroidery end of things. I can't wait to be able to stitch out those larger designs. I fell in love with this machine when I saw it demonstrated last Fall. Now one is living in my sewing room!

Hi Marge! I'm on the TL group and you have helped me so many times with all your knowledge of Lizzie. Thank you! Yes, the brother is a beauty of a machine. Hubby was very happy for me because he loves to make me happy, but he said he thinks this should do me for a good long time.

I have a Brother Innovis 4000 and that big hoop is the best thing EVER! I even bought a second one so I could have one ready to go when the other finished. You got a great machine, enjoy the heck out of it!
