    My Early Christmas Present

    Hubby said go ahead! So I did! I traded in my Janome 300e for this beautiful Brother embroidery only machine. What a difference. Don't get me wrong, I loved my little Janome for a starter, but this one is on a whole new level. Boy am I having fun.

    How very very nice! Is that a Quattro? I have the Duetta and have loads of fun with it.

    In your post you said "embroidery only machine", but your Brother is for both regular sewing and embroidery - I'm thinking you know that - right???

    It looks like a beautiful machine. I have a Brother embroidery machine and I love it.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    It is embroidery only! Wow, I want one! I had read Brother had a new V series of machines out but had not checked into them. My PC6500 has been giving me fits and has to be repaired. I'm not so sure I wouldn't trade it in on this beauty. Nice hubby!

    Last month I took an Anita Goodesign class using all Brother machines. Brother does make Embroidery only machines, they do look a lot like this one, just can't remember the name. LOL Enjoy your new machine! I had a blast at the class, wish I could justify the cost of an embroidery machine. Just not in the budget this year. LOL

    It is the Innovis Dreammaker "embroidery only" machine. Brother just came out with it. You can also get it sewing only or combo. I only wanted the embroidery.

    What is the benefit of embroidery only machine? How do you get the designs to the machine? Stick or plug into laptop?

    Congratulations on your new machine. I also got myself an early X-Mas gift at Joanns today..a HV Topaz 20. I have NO CLUE how to even start to use the embroidery part of the machine. LOL I'll take some of the classes after the holidays

    Designs can be sent both ways to the machine. The benefit for me was the price and the fact that I already have a beautiful Viking to sew on. Now I can sew while the embroidery is doing it's job.

    How cool is that! I didn't realize there were embroidery only machines on the market without going with the behemoths that have a bunch of separate needles for the thread colors. I have a HV Designer Diamond that I use exclusively for embroidery, then have a Topaz 30, a SE, and a D1, that I use for various aspects of quilting. I would think that it would be a lot cheaper to have the "one use" type machine rather than the "two use" machine, that I don't even use for both. But I wanted the very large hoop capabilities, and the computer connection. The Topaz does much of what the Diamond does, but uses only a stick for download, less screen. But it has the large throat too, which I love for quilting.

    Congrats! I also would like to move away from a combo machine without losing too much embroidery space. Hubby thinks I need a 10 needle emb to get an emb only machine. Just wait until I show him this! Enjoy your new toy!
