Machine Alley

As I said earlier, we all had a blast at "A Nimble Thimble" over the weekend.  This wonderful quilt shop is located in Tyler, Texas and is owned by a sweet lady, Katie Hartner.
If you're ever in Tyler, pop in to the store and take a look around.

I thought I do a little show & tell about the various embroidery machines we all were using.
First up is the Pfaff 7570.  This machine is roughly 10years old and requires memory cards to operate.  I, also, have this machine but now use it strictly for sewing.
Our instructor, Brenda, owns this one. It's a Janome Memory Craft 300E stitches out some nice designs. It is computer compatible, meaning you can purchase designs via the Internet, transfer them to the machine or a flash-drive to be stitched. 
Next is the Janome 10000.  As you can see the screen is displaying several folders which have designed stored in them via computer, flash-drive, etc.
The Janome 11000 (this one is mine) is, of course, computer, flash-drive or memory card compatible. I really love my machine. I've only tapped the surface of its many powers.
This is a Brother Disney Edition. Note the large screen for easy viewing. Also computer, flash-drive and memory card compatible.
This is the "big boy" of the machine embroidery world at the moment. A couple of ladies were operating their babies with ease. It's the Bernina 830.  It has a very large hoop capacity and of course, is compatible with everything.
Finally, we have the Bernina Artista 730. Again compatible. 
You will find that all the machines nowadays are compatible for ease of downloading and using designs from the Internet.

It's incredible what embroidery machine can do. I have 2, a singer and babylock. I use the singer when I'm mass producing items. Otherwise, I use my babylock; it's more user friendly than the singer.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
