I’ve got the innov-is 55. It took some getting use to, I previously had a 40 year old singer electric, which was very basic.
I have played with it and now feel very confident with it, there is an excellent manual, where I look regularly just to make sure I am doing the right thing with the different feet.
The only draw back I have found is the monogramming. I thought I would be able to personalise gift bags, but the size of the letters is too small, it’s ok for say very small items, i.e. I put “Lavender” across my lavender bags, but it’s too small to say put the initials on a gym bag.
I have found the eyelet worked when I first used it, but now the circle is not meeting up. I contacted Brother Help, and they gave me some instructions, but it’s still not working correctly, I will have to look into it further when I have the time.
Sorry about the long missive, but it’s best to get all the opinions you can before you spend a large amount on a new machine.
