My most recent sewing purchase has arrived - it is a Brother PE-770. I previously owned a Bernina, sold it, bought another Bernina a year later, sold it and have been without an embroidery machine for nearly 2 years. Now don't get me wrong, I loved my Berninas. I had a 200E and a 185E. Both excellent machines. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
I have found myself wanting to do some machine embroidery, but wasn't up to spending what the solid Bernina costs. So ... being budget conscious, I did some research and came across the Brother PE770. This is an embroidery only machine. It does not use the Disney Cards, but with my kids in middle school, that wasn't a priority.
My purchase has arrived and I will be opening it shortly. Stop back for a full review - opening to first stitch.
