Brother LB6800PRW Computerized Embroidery and Sewing Machine Review
(More customer reviews)I thought I had done my research on this machine but man was I wrong! After I had purchased this machine, I read that there is NO DIFFERENCE between this one and the SE 400 which you can buy for a full one hundred dollars less! The SE 400 is 369.00 right now on Amazon.com. Oh yes, there is a difference, you have the name project runway on your sewing machine and you get the little bag to cart your sewing machine around in. For that, you pay an extra 100 bucks! I never had any intention of using the bag, I would be embarrassed to cart around my sewing machine in a P.R. bag, I bought this one because I was told it was recommended by consumer reports so I looked no further. Don't get me wrong, this machine does what it says and is fun but the hoop is small and you have to buy larger hoops to use the larger designs. I could have spent that extra 100 on larger hoops or the embroidery thread you have to buy. Know also that the thread for an embroidery machine is very expensive. As are the hoops. Plan on spending at the very least another 60.00 on additional hoops and the thread for the machine is 5.25 for a full size spool. The smaller ones are cheaper but you get a lot less thread and the machine uses a lot of thread. Even with only the basic 8 colors, you have 42.00 bucks in thread and don't kid yourself into thinking you can get by with only 8 colors. I would buy this machine again but not the Project Runway machine, it would be the SE 400. I was considering not posting this review because its embarrassing to admit you were too stupid to look a bit further but maybe someone out there will benefit from the expensive lesson I have learned.
