Me, the footsie fetish queen... whowouldathunk that a machine could come with everything a tool junkie like me could want?!?!?!

No joke... the package I got on this machine brought the footsie total to 39! The machine comes with 18 (IIRC) and at that John Deer event, another 21 feet plus an incredible accessory carry bag was included in the deal as well. This 21 foot kit had a $585 price on it.

There are two walking feet.. one open toesies... one regular.

I just spent about three hours just unpacking this beauty. I haven't even threaded it yet... (but just for kicks and grins, I did push the needle threader button a couple of times! LOVE IT)

I'm gonna have to post some pics... you guys won't believe the case that comes for the embroidery module and hoops! It looks like something that should house some uber-secret weapons on an aircraft carrier or somthin'.

Then... the *jewelry box* that holds the 18 feet (plus loads of other things... two more bobbin cases, single hole needleplate, etc... OMG.. it is just beautiful. It has two trays that the feet snap into - you literally can turn the trays upside down and the feet stay in the tray. So cool.

So I guess I'm off to figure out how to get the tablet that came with this thing to work... Anxious to see its capabilities and limitations. :)

Um, pics, pretty please? Isn't unboxing delicious? That's an amazing package, a serious Baby Lock/Brother advantage.

The fancy foot cases get me every time. Pfaff and Baby Lock must be trying to out do the BERNINA accessory wardrobe. Maybe that will push BERNINA to come out with some special edition cases, etc.

Btw, my iPhone 5 autocorrects to put BERNINA in all caps, I sometimes fix it, but I'm feeling lazy. Kinda obnoxious I know. Pfaff, Janome, Elna .....all normal.

Isn't that foot case just gorgeous??! When I first saw it at my BL dealer some years ago, when the E first came out, I wanted the machine just to have that case, lol!

And PHOTOS please!!! Lots and LOTS of photos!

I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.

Ok, someone post pics of the foot case before I drive to a dealership and peer in with a flashlight and get arrested. It's after 10pm here.

I might just have to buy the purple PCP foot case to appease this lust. Baby Lock was smart to make their case useful to only the Ellisimo.

Please Sally, you don't want me in jail for the holiday.

Sewing machines make me happy. I like sewing with them, cleaning them, petting them, gazing longingly at them.

OK.... It's 10:45 PM here now... and I don't wanna see anyone going to jail tonight. lol

I just nabbed a few pics off the web... hope these are good enough for you junkies. :)

The military-looking case for the embroidery stuff:



And here's the Footsie Box:




I couldn't find a decent pic of the accessory / foot kit with the bag... I guess I'll have to take one.

My children will thank you for keeping Mommie out of jail for the holiday.

What a haul! That really counts for something, all those accessories for a reasonable package price. Good for Baby Lock!

My Baby Lock Quest Plus came with the straight stitch plate, large extension table, and 15 feet. There was a set of 9 more feet, which I asked for as an incentive, and only didn't get because the sales person said it was no longer available. That was incorrect, actually.

The Brother Symphony comes with tons of accessories, too.

Congratulations! You will love it!! I have had my EG since June and still giggle sometimes as I discover something new! I am new to the whole embroidery thing, but the EG makes the learning curve quite easy. I'm a garment sewer from way back but have been doing everything else since I got my new machines......can't seem to get enough of trying fun new things. The quilting features on the EG are great, too! Enjoy! The EG brings a whole new level of excitement to sewing!!!

Am waiting with baited breath to see those other 18+ feet and case and what they all do! I've had my EllieMo nearly 2 years now- just have the original 18 shown in your picture and I haven't even used all of them yet. Have fun!
