Brother PE500 Embroidery Machine

The Brother PE500 Embroidery Machine is on special from Walmart for only $199 on November 27th.  this machine is a 'toned-down' version of the SE400 or 6800PRW.  The PE500 is embroidery only (no sewing), and supports a field of 100mm by 100mm (about 4" by 4").   This is a perfect machine to start with with if you are looking to start with embroidery.  quite a few folks I know have gotten this machine to make plushies or just embroider everything in the house.

If you need a regular sewing machine too, there is a starter brother machine for $50 from Walmart as well.  Personally, I prefer the Brother CS6000i sewing machine, but it is also almost 3 times more expensive.
