Has anyone seen one of these machines. I haven't seen it reviewed or an actual price. DreamMaker XE

It apparently falls into the category of they won't give you a price unless you go to the store. But it apparently has a 7X12 inch design field.

I just check the specs online, seem impressive. Wonder how it compare to the Janome 12K ?

For sewers looking for emb only machine, the MSRP of 5K sounds more attractive than the Janome 12K.

New TOL from Janome supposedly in August. So far, I would take Brother over ANY other emb machine. So far...

Thanks for the info. That sounds a little pricey to me.

They need to meet us halfway! Something in between the PE770 and the Dreamaker. I don't need a stupid laser thingy. I want a BIG hoop w/ no splitting involved and color screen. I can thread it myself, thank you very much

I soooo agree! I remember when the dreamweaver series was first introduced the video said: "The first 3 of a new line of machines". Leads me to believe that there will be more machines coming down the pike. There are a bunch of Innov-is machines, so why not a bunch of dreamweaver?

I'd love to see a machine that is embroidery only, larger than 5 x 7, and without all the extra frills of the TOL sewing/embroidery machines, should be less expensive.

And I want an 8 x 8 hoop, at least.

The 3 machines are the DreamWeaver, the DreamMaker VQ (sewing only) and DreamWeaver XE (sewing and embroidery combo).
