I have been thinking a lot about getting an embroidery machine, and I know I need to really do my homework. But with the holidays I really haven't had the time. You post was one of the things that I have been wondering about..just how expensive are the materials, and how long will it take to make back the investment in the machine and materials to start.
I also don't know what the market would be like in my area. It's really hard to tell in this economy what would sell...
