I’m just going to come out and say it- I haven’t been a big fan of embroidery-only machines. I’m not talking about professional machines, like the Enterprise or the Endurance, I’m talking about machines that are for home embroiderers- and that’s all they do…embroider.
I feel like most of the embroidery-only machines that have come out in the past have inferior motors and therefore do not give the best stitch-outs. As a sewing machine dealer in a rather small community, we cannot afford to endorse inferior products. Selling someone a machine that they hate will hurt our business- so, I haven’t had a home embroidery-only machine in my store for years.
Well, that’s about to change!
We got back from Baby Lock Tech 2012 last week, and we are pleased to announce that we will be carrying the Baby Lock Spirit Embroidery-Only machine.
Why do we love it?
It’s got a 7″ x 12″ embroidery area: That’s right. So, if you want an area that is almost as large as the Ellisimo, but you’d rather spend less than half on a machine, the Spirit is the way to go! (Please contact us for pricing)
It has USB Type A and B Connectivity: So, if you like to have your computer in the room with your machine or across the house- it doesn’t matter. Transfer designs with a cord or with a USB stick.
Here’s a full list of specifications, if you’re wanting to do some more in depth research!
Do you need one?
If you have an Ellisimo or an Ellegante, you probably don’t need the Spirit- but feel free to come buy and look any time!
If you have a Sofia, an Ellure Plus, or a BERNINA sewing-only machine– the Spirit might be an excellent addition to your sewing room.
Here’s why: You already have an excellent sewing machine with a DC motor. If you’re satisfied with your sewing and decorative stitches, then there’s no reason to invest in more sewing fire-power. But, from years of selling machines, we know that people eventually want a larger embroidery area- and this is an affordable option with excellent features! (Once again, contact us for pricing).
We should be getting our first shipment of Spirits in at the beginning of October, so pre-order today and get those bigger embroidery projects ASAP!
