Default i want an embroidery machine

i know a few of yall have one-so my question is what is the best one that is still reasonable? i dont know anything about them, except that i could make my money back from the purchase of the machine so, what are some good brands that are easy to use and do a great job? what do i need to look for in one?

thanks girls!!

I've got a brother and I love mine! I got it 5-6 years ago. I paid $800 then but you could get the same thing for about $300 now. It's a brother 180 D. It is a stand alone embroidery machine. Personally I don't like the all in one machines. With a stand alone machine I can be embroidering and then go over to my sewing machine and sew. I would suggest going to your local dealer and getting a trade in. You can get a great deal that way. Mine only has a 4 x 4 stitch field, it's great for a beginner but I long for a bigger stitch field so I can stitch out bigger things.

all the extras and add ons will be as much as your machine! LOL

I've got an amazing box that lets me take files from my computer to my embroidery machine $150

software to convert images to embroidery files $150

stabilizer and embroidery thread $100

yes you can use the disney images and the other images that are already on the machine as well as the 3 fonts on the machine. So you don't need the box or the software immediately. I just like it for a bigger variety. The stabilizer and the thread though you would need right away.

I have an esante by bablylock, paid $2000 used 7 years ago. it has the larger hoops which come in handy for a lot of projects. Love, love love it. I have more than paid for it, several times over, and i have a hard time charging people. there are places to get thread really cheap, i always get my stabalizer by the bolt with a 40% off coupon. the amazing box and embird- computer software, are both a must. i have paid for very few designs and fonts, most places have free designs to download. Let me know if you want any of these sites and i will make a list.

I have the brother Disney 270D. Haven't used the embroidery part really. I had problems everytime I tried. The sewing machine is awesome though. Completely digital and very very quiet!! You can get the PED basic box on Ebay for about $80 or walmart did have them for $60 on clearance. There are tons of places online to download free designs, but it comes with a ton anyway!!
