Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I like having an arm so I can embroider on hard to reach spots. I also like the convenience of being able to change the bobbin without removing the hoop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficulty in getting help I purchased the machine being told it would perform a lot of tasks. I’m having difficulty finding an embroidery program that would download fonts and designs that I had purchased off the internet. No one seems to be very helpful. By trial and error, I have found one that I can use. Machine is pretty fast does a good job. It’s just getting to that point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best thing I have ever won. I won this machine at a Brother /Anitagoodsign event. I have enjoyed so much along with the Brother Dream Machin2 that I purchased. I have been making some beautiful projects. We have family crafting nights and everyone has fun. I like that it is so easy to learn and use. The open front allows me to make many projects you cant on the other machines. I love it.
