Thereís a new Brother PE770 on its way! Iíll be using it mainly for adults - shirt collars and cuffs, tees and sweatshirts and I suppose some linens. Iíve been reading posts and forums, but would love to have some input about what Iím thinking about ordering.

I have a Little Max, so Iím considering getting Amazing Designs Edit ĎNí Stitch along with PlaceíNíStitch so I can merge designs, and an Embroidererís Buddy for sweatshirts. For linens, it looks like Perfect Placement will help out. And Iíll get some 90wt bobbin thread, since thatís what Brother says the machine is set up for. The Brother bobbin thread looks fairly expensive, though, so I'd like to hear about experience with other brands.

If anyone has experience with any of these or other solutions, suggestions for the Brother or advice in general, Iíd love to hear it. I consider myself a beginner - a lot of reading, not much practical experience.

Thanks for any help!

Congratulations on the new machine. There are a lot of gadgets on the market that you can live without.

Editing software is a good start. Embird is very popular and This site has a trial and the best purchase price.

The tutorials at Embroidery Library will help you with all of your purposed projects. Their tutorial for saving and organizing downloads is especially helpful - Embroidery Library site

As for the 90wt machine embroidery bobbin thread, I found this ad that indicates there other machines that use the 90wt thread Click here.

Some owners of the 770 swear they do not see any difference when they use 60 wt ME bobbin thread.

A bobbin tension can be adjusted if there is a problem with using the easier to find 60 wt thread.

Thank you. The Embroidery Library site looks particularly helpful. My machine should be here tomorrow - I think I'll give Embird a try then.

My sewing room is full of gadgets that seemed handy when I bought them and then got used once or twice.I'd like to avoid that with embroidery tools!
