2 - 3 weeks is nothing!!! Almost every other day seems to be a Friday to me ...

Its a no brainer!

Local dealer, warranty, no worry about shipping (if its broke when it arrives dealer takes the hit) and lower price!!!

Order it, I get my plane tickets sorted and see you in a couple of weeks!

Enjoy when it arrives!  You do realise that it will be a VERY long 2-3 weeks.  :)

I know  :S But at least I can buy some nice embroidery thread and play a little with embroidery software until then, right?  :thread:

Embird is good if you haven't already got embroidery software ;)

Exciting times!

I was thinking of Brother Pe Design, seems popular and there are many tutorials around.
I just came back from the bank: paid the advance on my brand new, beautiful machine :D
Checked out the Janome ipad apps last night. There is one that lets you take a picture of the hoop and edit the design however you want: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-4DuFzUrM4
How cool is that?!  :D

Yes Brother is very popular.  I don't use a lot of software now.  Haven't got time for digitising.  I'd rather be sewing.  But like Syrinx I like Embird.  I use it for any editing etc.  And it,s soooooo much cheaper.

A month?  Oh dear!  Spend the time trawling the embroidery websites, just try not to  spend too much money on all the lovely designs you find...

What a pain!   :angry:

Are you learning how to use it from Youtube videos so that you can hit the ground running?
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.
