Just got a Brother PE150...help

katiejoOctober 7, 2007

Hi, well, I'm quite a rookie at this...I just bought a Brother PE-150 embroidery machine and now I have questions. Can I download my own images off the internet to embroider? I would like to embroider my horse's names on their blankets and halters...is this possible? How do I go about doing this? Do I need special needles and such for thicker materials? Where do all of you buy your memory cards and larger hoops (I only have a small one)? I used an embroidery machine in high school but no where near what this one is like...please bear with me on the questions. Thanks in advance!! Katie

Hi Katie, you can get a bigger hoop, but it's not going to allow you to embroider more than a 4X4. It only allows you to line up and continue on something. You don't have a machine that will appreciate(at the very least) going through a thick webbing like halters...no matter what needle you use. You can certainly do blankets for your horses. You need a reader writer box to transfer anything you see outside of your machine. You just need to go into machine embroidery and there's a wealth of information about these boxes. Your machine has the letters to embroider already. If you want something different, you need to get a box (it will come with a card) and the internet is your library. If your need help, you can email me. Chris
