Pictures of old Brother (or compatible) frames

amgalaJanuary 22, 2008


I have been looking at some older Brother and Brother-compatible home embroidery machines, however, I can not find much information about them on-line. Hoop size and design is important for my needs, and I will take that into consideration when choosing a particular machine model. I was wondering if any of you have any pictures, or could easily take some pictures of frames available from the late 90s to the early 2000s and send them to me at [amgala]@[gmail].[com] (obviously with the [ and ] removed). Also, if any of you have any website links that show such pictures, that would be great also. I very much appreciate any help that is given.

Thank you.

My PC 8500 has a really small oval hoop for collars and cuffs, and approx. 4 x 4 and 5 x 7 rectangular hoops. They are metric measurements so not exactly those sizes. Does that help any? It's 5 years old, so that would be 2003.

You could also try Brother's website - I think it's
