babylock ellure- do i need ped basic and ultimate box?

khawk1411March 2, 2007


I'm new to forum and thanks to searching through forums to get an idea of where to start, I have made my 1st purch of a combo sew/embroidery machine- a gently used Ellure few years old (pre USB). Have never done embroidery but want to start. Pick it up this weekend.

The prior owner is nice to include a CD of lots of designs she already had. Now my machine didnt come w/Brother PED Basic Box, but she suggests I purchase it at Walmart.

Having read thru forums, it sounds like lots of folks love their Ultimate box and Embird to get new designs and use them on their machines. As a newbie, I am a bit confused- if I bought the Ultimate box, do I also need to have the PED Basic box anyway? Or can I just buy Ultimate box and forgoe her suggestion of PED Basic? And whose 'cards' do I buy?

Thx in advance for your advice.
