    Hey Mary, I think it is comparable to the Pfaff Smart 300E machine I believe they came out around the same time!! Do you know the max embroidery this will do?

      I think it was 5x4 or 5x6, I don't remember right now.  Will ask my dil.  Mary

        I think that is the same as the Pfaff..Not sure..I was checkin into this as a starter machine for meBut you know Mary...Actually I have been rethinking this and kinda would love to check into an Industrial machine as you know I have been having fun on my purses and such and I tell you I am only working with cotton..that Home Dec Cotton was just about enough with all the layers as I was constructing it. My machine did fine up until the seams and such...topstiching was ok until I hit the seems or I went over those belt loops..So I have been wanting to add an embroidery machine to my sewing room for years...but I wanted my serger first..got that and wouldn't trade that for the world!! Then I am thinking on the embroidery!! But then the cool needle felting machine came along and I think this would be a great addition for my sewing room...plus the money is right!! So I think well I guess I can wait a bit for my embroidery machine!!! And now I think I might wait awhile longer as I really would love to have the ability of the Industrial machine at my finger tips...I know I was doing my thought process out loud to you! Hope you didn't mind!!So there you go!! But I know eventually I will have the embroidery machine!! Just switching what do I want more!!

    I am going ot buy the Janome 350e soon, I will let you know how I get on with it.  It has a USB port, which I believe will be very useful..

      I too will be buying a Janome 350e because it suits me and what i intend using it for. I have read many good things about this machine. My mother-in-laws friends owned the 300e but upgraded to the Designer SE. Issues with size/stitch limit. The huskystar, which Mary mentioned, I have not seen in Australia yet.

      There are many comments made about the 350e on the pattern review forum.

        Oh that is exciting that you are getting the 350e as well - when are you getting yours?  It will be handy to be able to discuss any problems we have or to share ideas about what designs we are going to use and what for.

          May for mother's day. hubby is getting it for me. Most certainly be in touch with you regarding designs, ideas etc. CherryPops

            What a lovely Mothers Day present!  Mothers Day in England is in March, but here in Belgium it is in May.  I wonder if that means I can have two Mothers Days...  I am getting my two new machines - the 6600 and the 350e from my hubby for my birthday.  We wouldnt normally spend quite so much money (scared to think about how much they cost! but I am going to be 50!!!!!) I am not sure if he will get both at the same time or if he will get one this month and one next month so that I have time to practice on one before I get the other.  My birthday is next week..... it is soo exciting!  I have had my Singer sewing machine for about 23 years and it only does about 5 different stitches.  It is perfect timing for a new machine though as my daughter is expecting her first baby so I hope to be able to use the embroidery on the baby clothes and bedding.  I must admit that I do not know a lot about sewing but I hope to find out.

            well you have come to the right place to learn about sewing and embroidery!

            how wonderful for you to be able to purchase two machines. You will benefit. Sew on one while embroidering on the other. I have a sewer/basic quilter and an overlocker/serger. and adding the Janome. That will keep me quiet for a while.

            you will make many beautiful items for your new grandbaby. my son's nanna made him embroidered jackets with matching pants for when he started walking and now she is making jeans with his favourite characters on them. I made general bunny rugs/receiving blankets and pram covers.

            I would love to embroider face towels and baby blankets. all in good time. and then do some edge work on jeans and skirts for myself.

            if you need advice just ask. always help out.

        If Memory serves me correctly..didn't you mention something about Mothers day...Well that is just around the corner you know!!And I haven't checked out that one as of yet...just might have too!!Do you know the size in which you can stitch with that machine?

        1. Cherrypops | | #10

          Yes still Mother's Day. Things have settled down at home, kids parties, school stuff etc for a bit so I can actually go shopping!!!

          I will email you more info about size etc.

      I will be waiting for your input on it.  Now, remember to relax in class and enjoy the process!  Mary
