Brother PE190D new user any advice?

mertleJune 10, 2007

Hi everyone, stumbled across this forum and it's wonderful!

I have just bought a new PE190D on sale and waiting for it to be delivered.

Does anyone on here use one or have used one in the past and have any advice for the beginner?

I plan on getting the PE basic software and card reader from Ebay and some designs from the net to try out with it too.

Thanks for any help or info on this machine, I can't wait to start my new hobby!!!!

Thoroughly read that manual several times before you start and then start practicing the manual from page 1.

Because of technology, today's machines aren't exactly your grandmother's old machine.

There are many free designs to download to practice with so I would start with the freebies first plus what is installed on your machine.

Brother is pretty good about giving you a starter kit. You do need extra needles, stabilizer, machine embroidery thread (a few spools to start), and practice fabric.

There is probably a Brother group on Yahoo groups you may want to join...they have a wealth of knowledge about your machine and embroidery methods as this site isn't that active should you need help.

Go to the MArtha Pullen website and look for the machine embroidery forum. Lots of very experienced people there.
