want an embroidery machine

I am interested in purchasing an embroidery machine. I plan to use it for family use and maybe some public use (to make a little extra money at Christmas). I don't want to spend too much money but want a nice one. I looked at the singer ce-100 but don't have room near the computer to put it. Does anyone have any advice for another unit?

Research the manufacturer sites and you will find one you like. I think you want a stand-alone type keep's an expensive hobby by the time you get through purchasing machine embroidery thread, a variety of stabilizer, needles, etc.

RE: want an embroidery machine

I agree it is an expensive hobby & unless you spend a good bit, you will have such a small field that you will be limited to what you can do in one hooping. Re-hooping is no fun. It is hard to get things lined up even again.

I have the Janome 300E and I love it. It's simple to use, doesn't require any expensive software - I just use Embird to convert and re-size etc. It had the 4x4 and the 5x7 field. Wonderful machine.
