Review

[E] The PE-770 is by far the lowest priced embroidery model that has the capability to rotate designs in 1-degree increments and includes built-in memory to save your custom designs. You would have to pay double the price to buy another model that has that combination of features. This model also costs about $700 less than others that have a maximum 5-inch by 7-inch embroidery area, which allows you to combine designs with less rehooping and create larger designs for, say, quilt squares or jacket backs. This is an embroidery-only model that doesn’t have sewing functions.
