Let me warn you this will be a mumble-mumble post…It’s one of those conversations you could have over a cup of coffee or cappuccino at a sewing café…
I have been pondering about buying an embroidery unit for my sewing machine. Geeky as I can sometimes be I love the idea of connecting the computer to my sewing machine and sending a design instructions that magically get embroidered on a piece of fabric.
Unfortunately when I bought the machine I mistakenly thought I could just do this without any optional accessories. Big mistake! Apparently you need an embroidery unit.
What’s the problem with that?
First, it’s super expensive.
Second, I don’t see myself embroidering on a regular basis. At most I would be doing a monochromatic embroidery like I did on my jeans pockets
Why am I considering it?
The machine is being discontinued. So I am afraid the embroidery unit will no longer be available.
Some shops are having discounts ranging to 25% off. This in Europe is quite a deal.
I would like to embroider large letters and more complex designs as in the above picture.
So, if you were sitting in a café with me what would you say? Have you ever considered an embroidery unit? Do you have any experience with it?
Disclaimer: I realize these are very trivial thoughts in the current economic climate so excuse me for that.
