Newbie with a Brother 270d
Hi everyone, I'm a new here and thought I would introduce myself before I start bombarding everyone with questions. I just received my embroidery machine a few days ago and can't wait to try it out. I'm still in the process of watching the video, step by step. I think I have threading the cassette case and bobbin down but the other may take awhile. I would like to know where everyone buys their thread. I was shocked to find it was 3.65 for a small spool at Hancocks, just had to get one though just in case I got brave enough to try it out (and I did). There has to be somewhere you can get it cheaper than that!! I've been looking on e-bay but can't decide on who to buy from or the colors.... I'm so confused.... I mainly got the machine so I could monogram and embroidery for my grand daughter who will be 2 next month so I'm thinking the pastel colors would be better. Is it better to buy a combination of different colors or colors along the same line?? Which do you use more of??
I did jump in and monogramed initials (don't ask me how I did it but I did and it only took me three hours to figure that out:) I can't remember if I had the setting for large or medium but if it was large,I'm in trouble. They were so small, would never do for towels or anything like that. Sorry to ramble but just have so many questions.
