    Wow what a sweet guy! Yep, he's a keeper alright!
    What size hoops did you get with it? Does it use a USB stick? There are plenty of "free" designs on the web but make sure you test them 1st.

    CONGRATS!

    If you need some help, just holler.

    Wow your right he is a keeper. and just maybe you can work together, doing beautiful embroidered quilts. he does the embroidery and you do the piecing to make them into a quilt. What ever you do or however you work together, it will be a good thing. Jan

    I took a class on this machine or the one that is top of the line. Does it have the camera & the little snowman sticker to make sure your placement is right. I loved it. Totally awesome experioence. Very user friendly. You got a good one. Wish I could up grade mine. The top of the line is about $9999.00. Good luck & have fun. I rememberd what the machine was. It was the Quattro.

    No little camera but it does have a light that centers it. Seems to be pretty easy and friendly

    That is wonderful. Where is this store and this lady. She is a pearl.

    I would like to know which Pfaff you have as I have a Tectronic 2040 and have had some problems. Thanks.

    We had been talking about getting a small embroidery machine just so I could make "pretty letters" on the purses I was doing or just for play. We looked at several of the Brother machines the past couple weeks and couldn't decide which one to get.

    Brother had a great sale going on in February so I didn't want to let it pass if possible....so on Saturday morning we went into the store (again) and talked with a really super lady...my DH said to show us the machine she'd like to have and she did.

    While talking, I told her the problem I had been having with my older Pfaff and she quickly told me how to take care of that problem...so actually I was ready to leave ... even without the machine but my DH was interested.

    After about 20 minutes of looking at different models, he pointed to the 2800 and said we'll take that one...even before she had finished showing us what they would do. He had pretty much made up his mind I think before we got there.

    Then he said, you best get some threads...so I was like a kid in the candy store and got some of this and some of that. The sales lady was surprised we got so much at first because she said most people only get a few and then don't have what they need to do a project....not us, lol.

    He told her to load us up with what we needed and she was pretty conservative actually. She told us several things that we wouldn't need most likely so there was no since spending money on them...really appreciated the honesty there.

    Got home and had to leave for a while but when we returned he got it all set up and couldn't wait to start a project. Without reading anything, he quickly figured out how to do a Disney Tigger on his work shirt and off he went. (He did do a practice one first).

    I finally got to try it out after a couple hours but I really think he wanted it and just won't admit it. Heck, he might actually want to sew something now too.

    He's a keeper for sure.
    If you take some soda straws and cut them and put them on the spindles of your thread stand the thread will sit better.
    Also if you turn one up and one down you can fit more thread on the stand also.
