It was recommended that I check out babylock spirit embroidery machine. I checked the website and it looks good, but I can't find any price info or reviews on it. Does anyone know anything about they can share? Do tell

I don't have specifics, because it will vary a lot depending on the dealer, but based on what I've seen in reviews, I'm going to guesstimate $3800-4100. I was going to look at the Brother equivalent yesterday, but decided on the combo version instead (the Baby Lock version is the Unity), which I ended up getting for $5700. At my dealer, the Brother versions are slightly less expensive, so you may want to consider the Dreammaker, which is essentially the same machine.

I've heard that $3500 to $3800 is average for this machine. I believe my dealer just had a lightly used demo model for $3499. If I wasn't buying a serger at the time, I would have purchased it. Now I'm considering the Crescendo sewing machine and making my Ellisimo Gold my "stand alone" embroidery machine.

That's what I did, only I don't have the Babylock versions, I have their Brother "cousins". I have the Quattro, cousin to the Elissimo and the and I just purchased the Dreamweaver, cousin to the Crescendo. I purchased the Dreamweaver so I could sew while using my Quattro for embroidery. The Dreamweaver/Crescendo is a wonderful machine, I find I use the laser guide all the time for topstitching (I'm a garment sewer more than a quilter).

Slightly too many machines...
