    I finally hit the yardsale jackpot today!!!! I got a Brother PE-150 embroidery machine, most of the accessories for it, half a bolt of stabilizer, and 5 pks of printable iron-ons for t-shirts. As soon as I get everything cleaned up and find my camera I will post some pictures. I have had really rotten luck with the yard sales this year so I was really excited and just wanted to share.

    I got the machine, accessories, tshirt transfers, and a convertor for different types of files for embroidery for $150.00.

    Here are pics. I just found my camera. I hope they turned out ok.

    You got a wonderful, workhorse of a machine. I still have my PE 150 that I bought back in 2002. I have since upgraded to the Emore (5x7) but still find I use the PE150 alot if I'm doing 4x4 designs. It is so user friendly. Great buy!

    I have a lot of learning to do. I have done freehand embroidery on my regular machine but never used and embroidery machine before so I am actually a little scared of it. I dont have a printed copy of the manual so I have to get it printed off so I can read it all and then watch the dvd.
