I'm looking to upgrade my embroidery machine from the Brother SE350 which I have now.  I really want something that I can get free embroidery designs off the computer and transfer them to the machine:


(these for example:) http://www.embroiderydesigns.com/freeembroiderydesigns.aspx?searchtext=halloween



A couple I've looked at online are the Janome 200e, and the Brother PE770.  I'd like something in a similar price range.  So far all of my machines have been Brother or Singer machines and I've liked most of them other than my singer serger (the brother one is great though), and I teach sewing lessons on Viking machines which I really don't like.  I've never used a Janome so I don't know how it compares.



Are either of those good machines?  Or any other ones around the same price?   What should I ask santa for?

Does this machine use cards? Have you considered getting a transfer box for like $100 and downloading designs to that. That's what I do with my babylock ellure. I have tons of free designs. 

Is there something you don't like about your current machine?
