Ping @ Beverly

Hello Beverly,
I'm currently spending a lot of time in two German groups on Facebook, one
for creative sewing, one for sewing for the chubby. One woman asked about an
embroidery machine and I passed on your excellent advice about looking at
what kind of data format the machine needed and so on. Some say that they
are so fond of their Brother V3 - which reminded me to ask which machine you
use. (I boasted with your skill, without naming names, though) ;-)

Mine are Singers, Quantum XL 5000 and XL 6000. They use a proprietary design format, so I ended up having to buy the software and dongle, but I'm VERY happy with it. There was a fairly steep learning curve on using the software, but I do like it. I can convert purchased designs, using either the proprietary PSW 2.0a software, or Embird whenever I can't find a design I want in the .psw or .xxx format and don't want to bother digitizing my own.
I bought mine based on a few criteria:
First, I have always had Singers, starting with my trusty 401A bought new in 1960, still humming along like new. (I now own *four* of that model, one of which resides at my granddaughters home).
Second, our own Pogonip/Joanne was raving about the endless bobbin feature:

page 29. Sounded good to me! (Threading it was tricky at first, but now I can do it blindfolded.) Third, the stitch quality.
The year I was making younger DD's wedding gown, I was in the local sewing machine store for other supplies, and they were having a close-out sale on the XL5000. I watched them demo it, including the snazzy bobbin re-wind and thread exchanger, and the quality of the stitch-out. I was sold. Bought it on the spot.
Believe it or not, I was so enamored with it that when I was embroidering the GROSS of pillowcases for the local Highland Dance group under a tight deadline (remember?

), I bought a used one, the newer XL6000, on e-Bay so I could set up a production line. The XL6000 has a big improvement to the thread exchanger, so I bought third one for parts, and the spare 6000 thread exchanger is on my 5000 now. Yes, I own THREE Singer Quantum embroidery machines. They keep the four 401As, the two Bernette MO2-3-4 sergers, the two Huskylock sergers, and the Babylock coverstitch machines company. :-)
