I'm just a bored brony.
Pretty much everything in my gallery is based upon MLP:FiM by Lauren Faust, so thank her and the animation team for everything. All the embroidery designs are up on my blog for free download, and can be used for making your own embroidered stuff. The designs may NOT be included in any embroidery collections, or hosted somewhere else without my permission.

These are the embroidery machines I currently have:
One of these: Brother 6800PRW www.amazon.com/dp/B003EPLBMO/
One of these: Brother PE770 www.amazon.com/dp/B002RJR5BE/
Cost $700 (had 3, sold 2)
One of these: Brother ULT 2001 (older version of www.brother-usa.com/homesewing…
). Cost was about $2800.
One of these: Butterfly B1501B/T www.butterflyemb.com/b1501bt-S…
Cost was about $10k with accessories
I recommend either of these: www.amazon.com/dp/B003EPLBMO/
for folks starting out. They are exactly the same besides the model number and the carry cart. They can do embroidery and regular sewing, and do both very well. I have had more than a dozen different machines by different manufacturers, and I like these the best. DO NOT BUY the Singer XL400, it is a horrible embroidery machine, and Singer customer service is even worse. Singer used to be totally awesome, I am very disappointed in their new products and service.
