I have some software that designs plush dolls (easytoy/patternimage) only problem is that I don't know which machine to go with >.< Here's my specs:
-Want a good size area for embroidery.
-To be able to embroider custom images (my own digital art, including eyes/mouth for plush and then other designs things for bags and clothes)... none of that limited stuff where you can only use patterns built into the machine.
-I think there's machines that use software that is "pay per month" and I'd like to avoid that... one that accepts some kinda open format where you don't have to pay monthly.
-Cheap!!! Budget between 300-500.
-MUST be a combo sewing and embroidery.
Would be grateful to your suggestion
Note, I was looking at the Ruby Royale, that looks like the ultimate machine... except it's over 2000 dollars lol.. If I generate enough money with my projects, I'll definitely buy that, but for now, looking for a cheap solution that does all the listed
