All right so now that we know the features your home embroidery machine must have let's take a look at the specsLet's start with costs because that's probably what you're mostinterested in hearing aboutSo as you can see there's quite a bit of a leap in price there with the brother in the baby lock brandsBoth are very good brands, but depending on your dealer.
They would charge extra for attachments, but keep in mindThis is MSRP that we're showing here so really the price will vary this is just the most accurateRepresentation we can get after those two there's Janome and then with the largest gap in price.
We have Rico ma being the most affordableNext let's take a look at needles the number of needles is important because the more needles it hasThe more efficient the machine is because you won't have to be switching the needle every time you have to switch the thread color theseAre all pretty similar?across the board with Rico maBaby lock and brother and then here we see that Janome is the only one that doesn't have tenBut seven is still better than a single needle or four Nieto of course nowLet's look at digitizing software most brands will include some digitizing software with the purchaseUsually a light version where you can edit some already digitized designs if you're a home embroidererOr if you're doing this for business chances, are you probably won't need to do full digitizing just minimal editingWhich you can definitely achieve with the light versionNow let's see how many embroidery designs are included we talked about this one brieflyYou'll definitely need some designs to get you startedAnd this is especially important with the home embroidery machine because you probably don't want to constantly spend extra money on designsSo we see Rick Coleman leads this category with 20,000 digitized designsso that definitely gives you a wide selection to choose there andWith the digitized software you can add lettering and do some editing to these already digitized designsLet's move on to the work standmostEmbroidery machine companies provide a work stand with wheels in order to easily move your machine around and to have a nice dirty flat surfaceto place the machine onRecall my includes this work stand in the price and others have it worksThen as well, but you will have to pay extra for it depending on what the street you are purchasing frommoving on to the cap attachment if you're thinking of embroidery capsYou'll definitely want a cap attachment again.
This is included with the recover embroider machines the others will charge extraBut they do have an equally wide calf frame the only issue for some may be that you have to pay additional for this attachmentOf course not everyone is going to embroider caps so you may not need to account for that costIt's just something to keep in mind now.
Let's take a look at speed speed is important because it will help determineHow fast you can complete a project you might want to complete a project faster if you're looking for a little side incomeThis is pretty much the same across the board with the Ricoh my brother and baby lockThe Janome is a bit slower.
However moving on to the memory sizeThis is pretty important feature because it determines how many designs your machine can hold in its eternal memory?Which is necessary for it to be?Substantial if you probably don't want to be going back and forth deleting designs and reuploading designs to your embroidery machine memorySo the Ricoh member machine actually has the same memory capacity as the standard industrial singer had in the marketThat's pretty mean the brother and baby lock are tied with500,000 stitches and the Janome has 10 megabytes of memoryMaximum embroidery area this feature refers to the actual size of the design you can embroider hereWe see the brother and baby lock are pretty congruent and then Rico ma comes in next at 12 by 8The Janome comes in at last nine point four by seven point nineBut I'd like to say anything above nine is a decent sewing area for a home embroidery machineNext let's take a look at how many flat hoops are included.
This is the actual frame your design will be embroidered withinFor those of you who aren't familiar with machine embroidery you need these to stabilize your garment and prepare it for the machine embroideryThis is pretty much the same across the board againMostly every embroider machine supply will provide some amount of flat hoops.
What's not the same across the board?However is whether or not the machine includes cap hoopsThis is mostly because you have to pay for a cap attachment with other suppliers of courseThey won't give you a cap whoo before you even have a cap attachmentthe RICO, mah is the only one that includes a cap hoop in this list becauseIt's the only one that includes the cap attachment within the initial priceNext let's talk about the starter kit depending on which company you're looking at your machine may come with a starter kit that includes threadbobbin backing and needles basically all the materialsYou need to get started on your first couple of projects the particular companyWe're comparing do not include a free starter kitBut the Janome does have a kit that includes materials and additional attachments for an extra twenty five hundred or so alrightLet's move on to the control panel the size of the panel is more of a cosmetic featureBut it's also very important if you want something clean and easy to see and operateBoth the baby lock and brother have a ten inch touchscreen and the Ricoh mah is next with the 7-inch touchscreenAlright, now.
Let's talk warrantyThis is pretty standard across the boardEach warranty is up to 25 years for the chasis as far as parts and labor it varies a bit by brandBut it's usually somewhere from one to two years for electronic parts is usually two to three years and for drivetrain components about five yearsfor Acoma it's one year for parts and labor three years for electronic parts five years for drivetrain components and25 years for the chassis andLast we'll go over financing which we talked about briefly already of course everyone knowsFinancing makes sense when you're making a large purchaseAnd if it can be at 0% and that's even better because it eliminates both upfront costs and crazy interest ratesWhich allows you to enjoy the machine and maybe even make some side cash as you goBut we're seeing here in this section is that recom is the only company from this list that offer 0% financing at this timeSo that's definitely something to keep in mind if you rather spread out your payment'sLast I would like to thank everyone for watching we hope you found this informativeI know we may have both advanced embroiders and beginners watching, but we like to includewhat each feature means in case you're new to embroidery andNeed some perspectives on why certain features are important keep in mindWe only compare the brands that are being searched for the most often of course there are many other brands you can lookBut the actual embroidery features are pretty much the same across the boardIt's more of a matter what you get us a customer or what you get within the startup packagewhich is what we aim for a trachoma so that's why you can clearly see that there are many perks andAttachments that we offer on this particular list if you're interested in learning more about the e/m or any other recoupment machineYou can see our machines inactions during a live virtual demo all you have to do is fill out the form at the end of the video and youJust schedule a time and date that works for you and embroidery specialist will call you to webcam or FaceTimeAnd show you exactly how a machines work and answer any follow-up questions you may haveAgain, thanks for watching and good luck on your search.
