I'm in the process of looking for a new machines......again! I need one that has an automatic button hole maker. I really like the Brother CE8080PRW.
Does anyone on here have this model or know of someone who does? Do you like it? Pro? Cons? I've been on the Brother site and compared & compared & compared, until I feel like my eyes are about to pop out of my head!

It's a great machine for the money! I had the Costco version of it, which has a few more stitches but the same machine. Brothers make very nice buttonholes. I should have kept it. I was being picky about looking at lavender and didn't think I would use it much so I returned it(my bad...Christmas gift from hubby ). You can buy a ton different feet for it, too.

Thank you Karen. I've had Brothers before and loved them, sew that's why I thought I'd go back! Just didn't know about this machine. I can order it thru Wal Mart and have it shipped to my local WalMart for free. I think that's what I'll do.

Thank you sew much for your help. Those automatic buttonholes are what I really want.

Take a mock up of what you would be putting buttonholes on and visit the dealer to test drive the various models.
