macihne embroidery

Ktcrugs | Posted in Machine Embroidery on

I am considering buying another embroidery machine – i had a Janome Memory craft 5000 and it was wonderful, but I am looking to upgrade to a multiple needle machine and am looking for advice on #needles and how difficult it is to change threatd – it seems most designs are more than 6 colors and many more than 10 colors – the machines I am leaning toward are the babylock endurance and enterprise – if 10 needles isnt enough for most designs, does it make more sense to get a 6 needle machine since I will have to change thead colors anyway? thoughts?

    Do you have a business where you need the speed?  

    The multi needle machines may be more touchy when it comes to maintenance.  That and instructions for use would be my primary concern as well as the cost for needles you would need to change per project.   

    If you use a thread stand for multi spools, changing to a new color is pretty quick.  Organ Titanium coated needles have a longer life than chrome/steel needles (they are not cheap).

    Visit the dealer and ask for a demo as well as a test drive of your own, including threading and needle changing.

    Best wishes.

    hello ktcrugs!!

    it's nice to be a part of this forum first of all...:) if we talk regarding babylock endurance emboidery machine then i would like ti say...With the Baby Lock Enterprise you get both quantity and quality. With 10 needles, the Enterprise gives you the opportunity to take on more than ever before. Large designs, multiples, or even gorgeous 10-color designs can be embroidered with minimal set-up or thread changes at a speed of 1,000 stitches per minute. 

    Baby Lock plays very vital role with 10 needles and a speed of 1,000 stitches per minute, this machine is ideal for anyone looking for industrial power in a home embroidery machine. apart from this if you get more info regarding embroidery of t-shirts then see this.. http://www.orangeboxasia.net/

    have a look on this too.....a lovely baylock embroidery machine...

    Buying an embroidery machine

    Wow!  Looks like I provided some info about 2 yrs ago for this member.

    So many decisions  !    A good dealer is my priority.  They will demo and then let you have a go at it.  Lessons may not be a consideration if you already have experience using an EM.

    I have a single needle and find it easy to change the thread when I use a thread stand that has the colors I will need at the ready.

    Best wishes for may happy hours stitching great projects!
