I bought this sophisticated Embroidery and Sewing Machine a few years ago, certainly an impulse buy.  I will say what little it has been used, this machine will do anything, and I mean anything!  It came with all kinds of attachments, and I have everything down to the boxes the pieces came in.  I bought lots of extra cone threads thinking I was going to do everything!  I already had a side thing I was doing, and it took off, and there was no time left for the embroidery.  I have taken lots of pictures for you to see what’s here.  The professional software is available at a dealer, but I was advised to learn all that came with this machine first.  It will even digitize pictures sent from your phone!  Don’t expect it to do big stuff, I sent small stuff and it did do the embroidery file, you can also change colors, etc.  I know that there was so much more that I needed to learn.  It even will do quilting.  It’s not likely that I am going to have time for this and the machine is too nice to just sit there.  The desk it sits on can go with it, since the machine is so big and heavy it needs this size sturdy furniture to sit on.  Plus you will need the drawer space.  All different size hoops, the embroidery equipment is very easy to change over to the sewing equipment.  This machine even threads itself, nice feature, learning how to do it is easy.  This machine runs like a dream.  The company I bought this from suggested lessons but it was too far for me to drive, but I can see where lessons would be helpful.  You can see videos on the internet and those alone will sell you on this machine, it did me!  I’m asking $8000 for all I have, the machine and all accessories, lots of extra thread (the thread is not cheap!), rolls of stabilizers, and that includes the desk.  There is a ton of downloaded designs and more that I purchased.  You will be amazed at all you can do with those designs and any that you create.  Any updates on the software is done thru your computer.
