I have a Brother SE270-D, already have PE Basic which is great for d/l designs and putting them on to the card. My sewing field is 4 x 4 - I received the Large Brother hoop for Christmas, along with the very small one - my question is, for those of you who have Embird, what can it do that the PE Basic can't? I do not have the money to purchase PE Design (anywhere from $700 on up...) - I'd like to learn how to rehoop, purchase split designs and utilize the big hoop for that. Would there be any benefits of having both? I thought I read somewhere that Embird will allow you to split designs - I really have no complaints about this machine - I'm not wild about the lettering and I can't figure out how to type 2 words and put a space in between the 2 words.
Thank you !
