Review

[M] You would have to pay at least $2,000 more to buy a model that has a bigger embroidery field than that of the Designer Topaz 30, which is a repeat Best Buy selection. This model also has the most work space (nearly 10 inches to the right of the needle) of any midrange sewing-and-embroidery combination model. We like that the Topaz includes an onboard sewing advisor that will make the best suggestions for needle, thread, sewing-foot attachment and stabilizer. The Designer Topaz 25 ($2,399), which has a smaller embroidery area and fewer stitches, also is a Best Buy.
