Does anyone own a Brother Embroidery machine? What is your opinion of the machine?
I am thinking of buying an embroidery machine. Would like others opinion on the Brohter brand before I buy one. Not sure which model yet so please let me know the model you are talking about. I will mainley be using it for children’s clothing, heirloom stitching & pillows.
I have a Brother 2500D and it works great. I must say that I use it mainly for embroidery but it sews so well too. I wish I could do both at the same time! I highly suggest that you get a 5 x 7 field. The 10 x 6 is also nice but not as essential as 5.x7. I would say 90% of what I do is 5 x 7 or less. The other thing I might consider if I had to do it again would be buying an embroidery only machine because I feel that so much of the extra sewing options are never used because I am always embroidering. I would probably buy a seperate sewing machine. The other thing to keep in mind is if you like Disney Characters you must buy a machine with a D as the last character. Brother machines are the only machines that can legally embroider Disney characters. Good luck in your decision. Keep in mind if you have not embroidered before there is a long learning curve because you must learn what kind of stabilizers to use, how to hoop items etc. Sewforum.com is a good place to go to get your questions answered and Emblibrary.com has a lot of good tutorials.
