Meet my family of embroider machines..
DC (dreamCreator) was my second machine purchased. All of his stitches I have put on during my ownership. He has two size hoops 5×7 and 7×12, making him perfect for stitching designs on towels and doing projects in the hoop.
Elli (Ellisimo Gold) is made by Baby Lock, a close cousin of Brother. She use to have a sister but “Goldie” spent more time in the shop than at home, so she had to go. Elli has 3 hoop sizes: 4×4; 8×8; 8×12 but she can accommodate the 5×7 brother hoop too.
Barney (Quattro) is by Brother. He’s a big boy and one of my favorites. Hoop sizes are: 8×12; 8×8; 4×4; 1×2.5 and he accommodates the 5×7 hoop size as well. With the wide range of hoops this is a very versatile machine.
Black Bro (Innov-is 4000d) is an oldie but a true work horse. This limited edition black series were built in 2004.
