Okay, I am not actually considering Isadore since the embroidery unit is too big for my little sewing closet BUT I have to give Brother and Laura Ashley top marks for the prettiest machine I have ever seen.

You can watch the video here

If anyone has demoed this PLEASE post for the rest of us! THX

Yes it is pretty.. but I was sold on this machine just due to the Laura Ashley designs alone.. the fact it is a magenta PINK only sealed the deal..
This is one machine I intend to demo asap.. I have tried to get a firm price on it with no success yet.. but believe it to be under 3500.. perhpas as low as 2500. Hopefully someone has a price quote they can share.

I know was just looking (drooling) at it. It's very pretty. Much nicer then the Janome recently revealed.

A dealer gave me a quote for the NX 5000. She will sell it for 5400 and the MSRP is 7100. I was a little surprised.

I almost bought the floor model LA NX 2000 for 1800 but it would not have the 5 year warrenty on the motherboard. Just a one year store warrenty. I thought that was strange.

It is pretty.

Wow Jannerie! That is a lot for a machine that only does what the last (5 years ago) generation of TOLs did. You can get a Janome 11K SE for less than that and candidly you can buy the Laura Ashley designs at ibroidery.com. Right now they only have 1 released but more are coming according to the Brother website.

Poorpigling - when you demo this machine could you also find out if the quilting extension table is included in the price please??? And it would be so awesome if you could let the rest of us know what you think after the demo.

That is strange. Is there another dealer in your area that you could try? I was offered the floor model of the Babylock Symphony (it's the same as the LA NX 2000) for the same amount but it came with the 5 year warranty.

I did not know you could buy those Laura Ashley designs elsewhere.. Thank you so much for that info.. I really hadn't looked around to see if they were available elsewhere.. I think the ones on the machine were exclusive designs.. but not positive on that.
I was quoted a ballpark price from a dealer of around 2500 to 3500 so I would guess the race may be on to see what the dealers are ready to do to move that machine ..

Poorpigling, could you let me know which dealer is willing to do that? I would drive pretty far to get a good price!:) My dealer here wasn't very nice to me when I called last year about Brother embroidery machines so I won't go back there. If I can get one for that price I may have to reconsider buying one!

Have sent you a PM.. Was wondering also if there are any Alabama members who could firm up a price from Kens Sewing Center....
Will let you know a Dallas price when I can get one..
