I would love to get an embroidery machine, but they are so expensive and I dont know where to start. Do you have them financed? Buy local? What do you use and how do you know what to look for. Im not a beginner. What is good but least expensive..thanks!

I use a U20 singer Industrial for applique and wide satin stitch, all my work is free form.Have used this machine for years, goes very fast so takes a little time to get used to.I also have a second U20 for putting the dresses together so I am not changing the tension and stitch all the time.

You're looking for something with the biggest hoop size possible. If you make a lot of dresses you're best bet is to jump right in to the large extension hoop/table that is offered by the Toyota and Tajima machines. I also believe there's a Happy Machine too? Yes, they are expensive, but you can get them financed. I put out the money for a small home embroidery machine only to end up buying the large machine a couple years later. (NT)Wasted money on the small machine for me.Friday, October 24, 08:28:49am
