Brother NV880E, with Bundle

By: Hazel on 23 August 2023
I’m new to embroidery/ quilting, when I was looking for a machine to meet my needs, I looked at what was in my price range, easy to use. Looked at YouTube and watched a few videos on the machines on the market. Had to be a Brother, as that’s all I owned! The NV880E has exceeded my expectations. The Ultimate Bundle is great value, I couldn’t go past it. This helped me to get started. I’m addicted , love the whole package .
