Smile Hello from Texas

Hi everyone! I came here to learn about embroidery and to get advice on what machine you think would fit me best. We hand make small drawstring bags and sell them to stores. quite a few of the stores have expressed an interest in having their logo embroidered on the bags and on some of the other items we make. I would love get a big 9 to 12 needle machine at first but I know I need to start smaller. I was thinking of a 4 or 6 needle but they are still a bit pricy for now. I have been able to find some good deals on some used single needle machine and I like the features they have available versus the larger machines. Here are the ones I like so far.

Baby Lock Ellisimo Gold - I like the camera feature and the auto correct and the tablet for free hand drawing or tracing a pattern.

Brother Quattro 2 6700 - I like the camera feature and the auto correct and the tablet for free hand drawing or tracing a pattern.

Viking Diamond - I have a brochure on it and it sounds comparable to the two others except this one has a larger embroidery area, nice feature

Janome MB4 - I like the multi needle feature. It would make it embroider faster and you can daisy chain them. I have heard a few bad things about these though. Any thoughts???

Baby Lock EMP6 - I like the multi needle feature. It would make it embroider faster than the Janome and you can daisy chain them.

Janome MC11000 - Just found out about it. Is this a good machine and does it compare to the Baby Lock or other two?

I look forward to hearing back from anyone about any of the machines I listed.

Default Re: Hello from Texas

I love the mb4.I have a melco 6 needle,a viking, a singer and the janome that I have for sale.They are all for sale,but if could keep 1 it would be the janome.I have never had any trouble with it,its quick,quiet and I love the on screen editing.I have done everything from quilting, lace embroidery and heavy denim jackets on this machine with no hassles.I have a friend with a 6 needle brother and she has it in the shop every few months.Janome stands behind their machines and if needed,its easy to fo find a service center.Design transfer is so simple and it stitches beautifully.For the money and the quality,janome mb4 is great.Its not a huge machine like the melco and is not super heavy.I took mine to a trade show to promote my business.I have tried many machines and its my favorite.Hope you find a machine you love and are happy with,it isn't fun when you don't.Every machine has its naysayers,so go try them all out and see what works for you.Hope this helps
