I found a place online that sells 4D sketch for $139. I've always wanted it, but I blew a ton of money getting 4D embroidery extra and 4D stitch editor back when I first got my machine. I can't find any reviews online for it. Has anyone used it? Is it worth getting? I have a Designer SE.

you could make a offer on this one and it free shipping.
I would put 80.00 and see what the offer is. hope this helps
I have one and I like using it. It is fairly easy.

None of them Ship to Canada. One said she would be willing, but I couldn't bid on eBay mobile. I think she has to change the listing. I'll ask if she's willing, but not sure if she CAN now that there are bids.

I have it and it was one of the main reasons I got the suite and not just extra I think in 2006 or 2007. Essentially I wanted to use it to thread paint or embellish over photos I had on fabrics.

It definitely does that and if you work well with 4d generally I think you will like it as it. But if your mostly doing thread painting and you have good FMQ you may not need it. Although from a planning point of view it's a good tool. I remember from my classes it has some very clever things.

I ended up getting it and I like it so far! I just started using it last night, but I'm dreaming of all the things I can/will do. Mostly combining machine stitches into embroideries and maybe some calligraphy. Thanks for the advice.

Do you have a tablet to go with it? Much easier to draw with pen than a mouse.
