Subject: Did most of you purchased the embroidery machine and then learned to digitize?

I would love to finally switch to an embroidery machine but I feel like I should learn the digitizing first and then get the machine and be ready for it. Or is it the other way around?
Suggestions appreciated.

Also, how do you find the expos/trade shows for embroidery machines? I searched on line and didn't come up with anything within the tri state area.
Thank you in advance for any help.

If you get the embroidery machine first you can buy stock designs and use those. If you buy the digitizing software first (and you know what hoop size you will have) you can have several designs ready to go. I started with a small machine and stock designs, then bought embird, then upgraded to Masterworks, then switched to Bernina, then upgraded machine. If you have the cash upfront I'd start with Bernina. If not Embird is a good starting point.sndmWednesday, July 23, 10:32:34am

Actually I meant Bernina software. Bernina makes nice machines but I think they are excessively expensive and not the "ideal" machine for Irish dance (more inside)sndmWednesday, July 23, 11:29:45am

I started with a small embroidery machine with a decent sized large hoop or so I thought. I quickly learned the ropes with the software and was soon wishing I had just gone ahead and bought the large machine to start. I've had one now for the last couple of years and LOVE IT!more inside :)Friday, July 25, 09:10:59am

Do any of you ladies offer embroidery services? or do you only do embroidery for your own dresses? (NT)not interested in buying a large machineSaturday, July 26, 09:48:30pm
