|What Mikgirl likes about this machine|
For X'mas I bought so many embroidered personalized bags for family and friends, and kept thinking "I can make this!"
So for X'mas gift I got this Brother PE500.
I love everything about this machine!
Everything is computerized so it's very simple to operate.
I've had few problems after few uses but I think it was because I got too comfortable and didn't set things up carefully.
What Mikgirl does not like about this machine
It's not that I don't like this machine...
It's that I love it so much now that I want a better one already!!
I didn't know how I'd like embroidery so I got the most affordable one...
But I tell you, if you like sewing and crafting, you'll like embroidering, so if you can get a better one...well, I wouldn't say better one, but the one with more functions that you can afford.
Now I wish I got a bigger hoop... This one is 4x4, and here're some nice deigns that don't come in smaller size.
I also wish I had the USB option.
This one comes with USB cable, but you need to connect to PC everytime you want to use new design.
Luckily I have oneof those small notebook laptop, but what if someone only has the PC console? It'd be a hassle to drag your embroidery machine to the PC just to download designs.
I guess there're options to avoid this, by getting a cartridge or something, but I need to look it up.
One thing to recommend...
When you buy your machine, especially online, get other supplies like thread, stabilizer, etc...
I ordered the thread few days I got the machine, so I couldn't play with my new toy until I go my supplies.
