Here is the webpage for it. It looks like a very nice sewing and embroidery machine. It's special both because it's pink and it has Laura Ashley designs on it. There might be one review on it here. Seems like it has lots of nice features; not the camera like on the Quattro 2 though. Please let us know if you get it!

I work very-part-time at a store that is also a Brother dealer. The Laura Ashley 5000 is almost identical to the Brother 4500D (D=Disney patterns). Reviews of the 4500 will give you a good idea about the machine. The people I know that have it really like it.

Good information. Thank you will read the reviews. If I decide to buy will probably be the last machine for me at least in that price range and want to get it right.

The Isodore is a very nice machine and yes it is similar to the Duetta 4500D. I believe you can use all the designs off of iBroidery.com on the Isodore and there are some Disney as well as other licensed designs.
Easy to use, big hoops. beautiful stitching. I think it comes with pretty luggage as well. If you can get a good price, go for it! I don't think you will regret it!

Read all the reviews here on the Duetta were very positive. Have several dealers in this area so checking prices and also what lessons would come with machine as I would need and want them. Thanks for responding I would never have figured out the two machines were so similar.Thanks again.

It's dumb, I know but I'm still in love with the color of the Laura Ashley 5000. I'm not anywhere close to buying a combo machine (or embroidery machine for that matter) but I still think about what I might get some day.
