Had my new toy now for about 3 weeks....and I would never have thought having a computerized embroidery machine would be so much fun. Just doing cards for Easter, all personalized with names etc. Made cushions with embroidery....the patterns that are already in the machine. Can download via a usb port from the web....just need to buy lots of cottons......hmmm!!!! Honestly the things it can do...software to buy so you can design your own patterns....the list is endless....love it.
