Emboridery Machines -- White 4400 , SVP Smart machines
On Sat, 13 May 2006 09:31:20 GMT, G. Wayne Hines

 These are the 'smart' machine series for both Pfaff and Viking......I
would not waste my money on them. They are produced for Singer and are
going to be sold in dept stores.  Very limited in scope no screen
difficult to use small embroidery area.   Same for the White and any
machine sold though WalMart etc. In believe the White is Brother based
though.  If you want an embroidery only machine look at the Janome
300e.  I have a couple of Pfaff 7570's and when I wanted a bigger
embroidery field I purchased a Janome 300e even though I sell Pfaff.
Terrific machine, easy to use and very very well built.  Also the
support from the company is terrific. Several Internet support groups
too.    There are lots of 'deals' on this model, and prices seem to
range from a low of $700 to almost MSRP of $1400.  They DO NOT need
proprietary software and work extremely well with Embird, the best
programme for customizing around.  
Remember that when the combo machine is embroidering, and some designs
can take up to an hour to complete, your without a sewing machine.
Something to consider when purchasing.  
I also found the Janome to be so user friendly that a dealer was not
really necessary for lessons....It takes an adapter and a small CF
card both available for under $20.00.  I load my cards through my
printer so never have purchased a card reader/writer.  I get the CF
cards for about $5.00 as they cannot be over about 128mb so the small
ones are great.  Ask your friends for the ones that came with digital
cameras, usually small and discarded for larger ones almost
immediately.  Janome cloth setter is a great tool for beginners, and
the Giga Hoop can be used with the 300e.  
I recommend this machine to my customers who just want a bigger
embroidery area and not a combo machine.  I do not sell Janome, just
Pfaff and Singer.  If you want an excellent under priced and
underrated combo machine then I recommend the Singer XL 6000.
Beautiful machine and not given enough credit.

    <pre wrap="">A similar machine is the new Huskystar EM10, which should be
available
soon at Husqvarna dealers. (Pfaff is supposed to have a similar
offering as well) I don't know about the White, but one possible
drawback to the Huskystar is you need a computer to edit designs and
to get designs to the machine. Many other machines use USB memory
sticks, CF cards, floppy disks, or a USB CD/floppy drive to load
designs.
