I have purchased a Ellageo ESg2 back in 2002 the power circuit died and the part is obsolete. So I have a wonderful embroidery machine with 100's designs and it can't be fixed. My question is what do you think about Brother embroidery machines. This way I would still use the same PES designs.

Thank you
Ann

Brother or BL are the most favored. I have owned both. Visit your local dealer and test drive the various models to see which one you like best.

I've never used a babylock, only a brother. I love how my brother has such an intuitive screen. Because I have a lot invested in PES designs, I will stick with this brand.

I have the Brother SE 350 and just love it. Newer versions are the SE 400 and the SE 425.

Not that I have any intentions of changing brands, but formats can be converted should there be a need.

If you do not have the software to convert, there are a couple free ones online.

Brother and Babylock machines are my favorites. I traded in my Ellageo in 2008 when the Babylock Ellisimo was introduced. I have not had one problem with it except a foot pedal malfunction the first month I owned it. My dealer replaced the foot pedal right away. I have 54 million stitches on the machine and I would not hesitate to buy another Babylock or Brother machine.

I am however curious as to why the power circuit board is not replaceable in your machine? Have you contacted Babylock directly to ask about this, and if the part is available, have your dealer order it. Usually boards like this are in the $300 dollar range.

There are times I still miss my Ellageo, it's a wonderful machine!
