    I plan to go out today to buy mine, the USB port and larger hoops are my eye catcher on these machines. Have a Brothers that 4"x 4" hoop but want the bigger hoop for quilting blocks. have fun with your new one.

    I wil be getting a brother embroidery machine for Christmas as well, I ordered last week on the HSN, cannot wait to get it, its not as fancy as yours, but I didn't want anything too fancy, I wanted one for a while just to do small things, names on pillowcases and such, christmas stockings, dishtowels etc... i bought a bunch of thread at JoAnns, theres was on sale for buy one get one free, so i stocked up. My embroidery machine is just for embroidery, i didnt need one the sews, cause i have two pfaffs for that. I hope you have lots of fun, i know i will.

    How exciting!!!! Congratulations to you - I know you're going to have so much fun with it!

    I love cutwork - old fashioned "punto intaglio" - Anita Goodesign has some nice collections and so does Embroidery Library. A touch of cutwork is so elegant - and so easy to add to a plain towel or set of pillowcases.


    Have a great time!!!!

    Looks wonderful. I'm really wanting a larger embroidery machine as well. (have a Janome 350E). How big of a picture will this one stitch?

    I'm trying everything I can think of to try to figure out how to earn more money so I can afford a bigger hoop than 5x7.

    If I can help I will. Maybe we can help each other. I'm catching on pretty quick, but, there are so many things it can do.

    The big frame is 12 x 7. I wanted to get one with the bigger frame to expand my capabilities.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy my Janome 10001. I was worried about spending so much money on a machine but it has been worth every penny, then some!

    I have sorta had my eye on the dreamweaver sewing only, and the embroidery only (really dont want a combo machine, but one of each would be cool) After you have had plenty of time to test this machine out, I would love to hear a review of it, both the good and the bad.

    How blessed you are. Keep having fun. I have a brother but it was inexpensive. I love it to pieces. Hope you gave hubby a huge hug and kiss. Know that machine probably did not come cheap. Congratulations.

    I think both of these designs are from the first Anita Goodesigns cutwork CD. Then I applied 4" eyelet to one pair and 3" crocheted lace to the other pair.

    Cutwork doesn't show up very well on terry toweling, but in Europe, fancy hand towels/guest towels are made from linen or cotton/linen blends.

    You also see a lot of cutwork on linen window coverings, along with lots of filet crochet and insets of filet crochet in linen.

    Nice! I have been tempted to go up from my 300e but now I have been reintroduced to hand embroidery and really loving it. I too noticed the finger prints on the touch screen. I am using an iPad to type this so I am sure I have the same thing on this screen. LOL. Good luck with your new toy/tool/machine.

    I don't know that I would get much sleep if I got that machine. Just so much to try and fiddle with. ENJOY!
