Yes - Kim.  My go-to top pattern.   :thumbsup:

Can I just say that every time I see this tread title I think 'Oh no, the software's misbehaving!'  I can't tell you how relieved I am that it's sewing thread and not a forum thread...  :laughing:

I've sewn with cotton ponte roma which isn't very stretchy and behaved extremely well.  It was thick, though - I haven't actually been able to wear it because it hasn't been cold enough!

This was my ponte top:

Looking at Franklins, they have had a Brother F440e display model for sale at £799 (now sold), so it is worth looking around.

It's dull, grey and 21c here again.  The forecast has now crammed our full sunshine into two hours at the end of the afternoon.   :[ 

We're off to see the goddaughters again this afternoon, out to a riverside cafe first, then back home with them (it's really nice being in an extended household with them!)

I'm trying to persuade myself to go and do some weeding, but for the moment a stonking great headache is keeping me inert.

I absolutely agree with @Iminei about the embroidery area.  Mine goes up to 150mm x 240mm, and although I do sometimes wish it was bigger, it is usually absolutely fine.  Much smaller would drive me round the bend though.

Mine would be £1600 new, but I got a phenomenal bargain from the dealer, who had one that a customer had unboxed and returned because she wanted a bigger one - I paid £800.

I can only answer for Husqvarna Viking, but here goes.

1.  Mine has a usb drive that downloads stuff from my laptop and gets taken to the machine and plugged into it.
2.  Not unless you want to make your own designs (I don't) and then it's more of a discipline in its own right rather than graphics - as far as I can tell!
3.  Not a new Husqvarna, no.
