Hello All,

I'm looking for some feedback on home embroidery machines. I had a 6 needle SWF for many years, last year I had motherboard problems. I've always wanted a higher needle count so got a 15 needle Barudan. Great machine, always heard good things about them. The learning curve is just too much for me. My frustration level is up there. There are 5 menu buttons so each function needs a "path" to set up that function. It's way too confusing to me. My SWF was simple & I was happy with it. Oh well, live & learn. Anyway, would any of you care to share what machines you have & why you like or don't like it. I'm looking at a Babylock Destiny II but it's a bit out of my price range (quoted about $12,000). I don't really need the sewing machine part. I have a Janome Memory Craft 6500. Any feedback is ppreciated!

Thanks, Peg
PS - I bought the Barudan used so not much out there in getting help with issues.

I think that machine is very similar to my Brother Dream Machine, upgraded with one upgrade kit. Camera is wonderful. Machine is simple and user friendly. I sew on a Bernina, sergers...Babylock all the way, but Brothers are my favourite embroidery machines. I have the Persona too.

Janome has a nice embroidery only machine, the 500e which includes the larger hoops. I don't have one yet but had a demo at a local shop. I do have an old Janome 10000 combination sewing and embroidery machine which I dearly love. It's been user friendly since I took it out of the box. The only thing I would have to learn is the editing software on the 500e but since I use Embird anyway I don't anticipate any trouble. Shirley has one, maybe she'll chime in here.
