Any Ideas?

I have a big birthday coming up in less than a month and want to finally buy myself an embroidery sewing machine as my prezzie. Don't you just love "to me, from me" presents in life?! I seriously pick out the best gifts for myself! I never have to return them and they are just what I have been dreaming of. Anyhoo...I would love your suggestions. Do you have a machine that you love? Or can't stand because it is difficult to use? Or your best friend's next door neighbor's sister has one that she raves about? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. I am looking for something that has several fonts and possibly the ability to add more fonts to it. Really I am hoping to monogram a few of my sweaters (how cute will it be on my new Target cable knit sweater!), and burpees and onesies as gifts. I don't really care if it can embroider bears and flowers and stuff. I doubt I would really use that so it is not a selling point for me either way.

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks soooo much in advance!! I can't wait to find my fun new toy!

OH that is a WAY fun birthday gift. Of course I have no suggestions, other then I suggest you monogram everything I'll be sending you! Glad you're gonna be an old fart like me.

I have the singer furtura. I love it. my only complaint is alllllll the stupid software you have to buy. The machine/software comes with 3 fonts only. So you need addition font software &/or the meage software to use fonts not included or to do the diamond monogram or circle monogram.
But I really do love my machine.

Great idea. I posted about my machine a week ago. I have a Janome 350E and I love it. It was worth every cent!! Good Luck and let us know what you decide on!

I have a BabyLock Ellure and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It is great for both beginners to advanced. I got mine as a beginner and it has really helped me get into sewing. There is still a ton of things I haven't done with it yet.
