    Hi, Lynn I just bought one last week and LOVE it so far. I haven't done very much though. so far the designs work beautifully. I've mostly done some lace ornaments. It's mesmerizing to watch!

    If money were no object, that is the one I would go for. (Being greedy, I wouldn't part with my PR600II, but the larger hoop size and the possibility to split designs 'in machine' with a jumbo hoop would be fantastic!)
    The precision needle positioning with the onboard 'needle cam' would also be a boon! I spend a lot of time moving the designs around on screen, and that feature must make it a doddle!
    I'm quite happy with my six needles, because that already allows for easy use of many more than six colors in a design, but I wouldn't turn my nose up at an extra four, and I do like the look of the thread feed system, which must make changing thread 'on the fly' even easier.

    Before this one I had the Singer CE-150. I was so frustrated with the quality and small hoops. Now I feel as though I have gone to embroidery heaven! I am still waiting to get my software and I really want to get the border hoop. Granted, it is almost the same as my car payment now! I hope I can start selling goodies to offset that payment.Before this one I had the Singer CE-150. I was so frustrated with the quality and small hoops.

    Have you considered a 15 or 16 commercial machine?
    There are some good buys on them for less money.
    Try the Amaya XT - 16 needles, large hoops - made by Melco.

    I don't think the number of needles is the most important thing - you can always change thread in one needle while another is stitching - I just think that the Brother machines are more 'user-friendly' for the home embroiderer. (the PR1000 is marketed as a commercial machine, but it is as friendly - or maybe MORE friendly, than it's predecessors.)
