hi, I just bought an ellure plus and am looking for software downloads, like for a fleur de lis, etc. The retailer that I bought the machine from sells expensive software and warns that most software online is no good. Also, looks for inexpensive source for stabilizer, thread, etc. Thanks in advance

Sonia Showalter has an excellent site and has new fleur alphabets. Her designs always stitch out great for me.

I have had an Ellure Plus for a few years and my BL dealer told me the same thing. Hogwash. Embird is great design editing software with add-ons purchased as you need or desire with full tech support from many sources.

If you are just looking for a suitable fleur de lis design there are many online stores that sell single designs. Embroidery Library is a good place to start your search. They offer each design in multiple formats so the PES you need will be available.

I use Marathon Thread (online) with great results and the price is very good. Their multi-color sets are great for start up. They also sell stabilizers and other accessories if you can't find them locally. I have not used their other products, just thread.

I love my Ellure and I hope you have a lot of fun with yours!

Many people swear by metro thread, I haven't used it myself, but only because I am too cheap to buy it when I still have so much other thread.

Their colors look very nice and you cannot beat the price.

I am looking at purchasing the ellure plus. This will be my first experience with embroidery machines. Do you think this is a good machine for a beginner?

Embird get the most for your money and can buy in modules so only have to buy what you need and it can grow with you.

I don't buy anything but Metro embroidery thread any more. It stitches out just great and their prices can't be beat. ThreadArt is also very reasonably priced. Metro also has a line of outstanding precut stabilizers and pre wound bobbins. Over time, I got tired of paying premium prices for embroidery threads when Metro thread holds up just as well, and the colors are gorgeous.

Go in for a demo and test drive and then you can determine what is best for your need.
