Got some money for christmas and want to purchase an embroidery machine. So excited but very confused too! I like the Ellure Plus but my closest dealer is quoting $3400? Does this seem high? Don't have that much to spend but want a good machine! Thanks for any advice! :)

Whoa, yeah, that seems really high! I bought mine a year ago brand new and paid around $1800, if I recall correctly. I financed it along with another machine, so I don't recall the exact price offhand, but I want to say $1800 ballpark. I love my Ellure Plus for embroidery. Not the biggest fan of sewing on it (nothing wrong with it, it's just not my favorite to sew on) but LOVE the embroidery.

$1,800 seems to be the average. Ask the dealer what is included as you have seen lower prices.

That seem really high! I've had one for 4-5 years and paid 1800.00 w/extras. That was from a dealer that would not negotiate much and the only one in the area where I could get that machine.

If you called to get the price they may be quoting MSRP only. Many dealers won't provide actual selling price until you come in to the store. Dealer I used to work for wouldn't, another one I know does. There are pros and cons to both options from a dealer perspective. Go in to the dealer, ask for bottom line on the machine and what's included (i.e. perks and promos).

Don't forget to negotiate the price. Never, ever pay asking price. If they won't deal, find a dealer who will.
