New Edition To My Sewing Family!!

My new sewing machine arrived the other day. It is a Brother HE-240 Sewing and Embroidery Combo. Initially I thought it was model SE-350 but they are almost identical except the front panel is different. I am loving it already and I haven't really even scratched the surface with all it does. So now I have 3 sewing machines and a serger. I am so fascinated with how the new machine just sews on its own with a touch of a button. My machine isn't even really one of the most expensive ones out there. I can only imagine what the more expensive machines are capable of doing.



All the feet that came with the accessory kit. I am going to have fun figuring out how to use all of them.



I played around with the machine for a while to test the embroidering feature.
It has 70 built in patterns and has USB port to download other patterns from the internet. The buttonholes are excellent. I wasn't totally satisfied with the buttonholes on my other machine.

Oooh, nice addition! I can't get over that you can download patterns from the 'net. That is so awesome! Have fun and happy sewing :)

I really need to upgrade my machine.

I am still on my beginner machine I got 4 years ago.

I'm still searching for the one I really want tho.
