What machine to buy?
I just sold my babylock, it did not do 3 letter monograms or 2 lines of text on one screen. But I know how to embroider; just am overwhelmed with all the options out there.
Here are my facts:
I have $600-$800 to spend, maybe a used one on an auction site?
I really just want to do 3 letter monograms (2 outer letters smaller than middle letter).
I also only want to do multiple lines of text (i.e. Ashley's grandma) without doing them separatley and having to be a math major to figure out to get them centered.
I am really not into "picture" monogramming. What is the best machine for me?
I was looking at Janome, Bernina, Husq/Viking, what else should I look at?
Also, I have a Chinese daughter--- I would like to scan or copy somehow Chinese symbols to put on some things for her with her birthname. So I guess I need to be able to get stuff off the internet and onto my machine, what do I need for that too?
