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