Love to yak and share ideas and help with others am Married almost 46 yrs and love my Kids and grandkids ssssssooo much hope to join in!
My sewing interests are:

My sewing machine(s):
I am now using the Brother "disney" computer embroidery machine (that i love to sew on) mostly and also have a euro-pro craft and sew and a Jenome sergerand a recent addition to my"little sewing space" for my granddaughter is a "hello kitty"sewing machine(works great)!
I am interested in patterns such as:
Mostly use "Simplicity thru the years but like Butterick a lot also!
I think the "little" embroidery machines are great for beginners and those who don't know it they will (or will not) enjoy machine embroidery. I have a Babylock ellure and have had it for several years and I REALLY ENJOY it! The Brother is a cousin to Babylock so I think it would be a fairly easy transition to a Babylock machine. You would definitely enjoy being able to use bigger patterns. Even on mine, I cannot do the jumbo patterns requiring the largest hoop. So buy as big as you can! especially if it is the jumbo patterns you have in mind to use on your next projects :)
