So far the only information I know is that one machine will feature a color touchscreen LCD and will do multi-directional stitching.

If anyone finds additional information, please keep us updated.

Wow, you hit the mother load! Thanks for finding this. They had the Topaz 50 up a couple of weeks ago then took it down pretty fast. I bet that's what's going to happen with these since it's a couple months before convention.

Also, I just went over the Royale information. It's really not that different than the current Diamond Deluxe. Basically, a new screen, dimensional stitches, comes with the walking foot, and new color accents. My dealer mentioned that the new MSRP price on it is also $10,999, a thousand more than the current one.

Oh, spoke too soon... also an applique feature, straight stitch plate sensor, new graphic interface, and increased embroidery speed.

I was checking out the sewing projects under the Be Inspired tab and noticed several Topaz 50 projects. I clicked on the Topaz 50 link and found the site for all the new machines.

I doubt I will trade up from my Eden Rose 250C but I love looking at the new machines.

I also like checking out the new stuff! I have the Diamond DeLuxe but from what I see, there isn't nearly enough "new" on the Royale to make me even consider trading up to it. I don't even use all the features of the DeLuxe.

The other new machines look nice though. I was wondering if they ever were going to put omnimotion stitches on a sewing only machine.

Hmm, does this mean the price for the 875 will go down? That could be exciting...

OK so I'm not driving myself crazy wondering why I can't see them
