Brother PE770

Well, I got a new toy!!! 

I must admit I am a bit spoiled when it comes to gadgets and machines!!!  So much so I feel a little guilty (just a little, tee hee)  You see, all I have to do is tell my dear hubby that I have a coupon for something and he will be like ..."go ahead and get it then". He's such an enabler and I love it!!  Shout out to the best hubby in the world, my Keith!!!

Okay so I just got the Brother PE770 Embroidery Machine. The set up and first embroidery all took about a hour. Pretty easy so far. I know how to sew, so I may have had an advantage over someone just starting out with some of the terminology and set up. I did keep looking for the foot control pedal that comes on your sewing machines though.  There isn't one on this embroidery machine. That kind of threw me a little.

Here's my very first embroidery design. I didn't have all the right colors so I substituted.  I think it came out okay. I still have a lot to learn and I hope to incorporate this into my other crafting. Maybe I can learn how to embroider on my cards!!!  Wouldn't that be fun???


  1. I'm jealous. I have the brother innovis 1500D and still dont know how to do the embroidery part, Need to take lessons on it but havent been able to with hubby sick.
    You are a pro!!! great Job!!!

    1. Linda, I have seen your work!!! You're the Pro!! I have a long way to go but I'm going to try to learn as much as I can. Sorry about your hubby being sick.

  2. I haven't used my embroidery machine in several years! I started paper crafting and put it away. You're going to have a lot of fun with it! Check out cross stitch designs for your paper crafts. They stitch up really nicely on paper and I even had special paper to use for it so it wouldn't punch the entire design out of the paper.

  3. Good for you, have fun learning!

  4. Nice job, Danita. I can't wait to see your future projects. Who knows, you and Sonya may open an embroidery business together!

  5. It looks wonderful Danita and I'm sure you're going to have a great time experimenting!

  6. Very pretty. I didn't know you knew your away around a sewing machine. I look forward to seeing what other things you come up with. I think embroidery on a card sounds amazing!
