Jane is giving good advice. Embroidery isn't something you learn overnight. I have at least a half dozen different stabilizers for different fabrics and it isn't a one type fits all applications world. All of the name brand machines are good and will serve you well IF you have good service and support(that should be your main concern). The stitch rate is pretty much determined by factors other than the rate the machine is rated at. Thread breaks usually occur for other reasons than the machine(ie, heat of thread going through needle, density of design or fabric, poor needles, etc). Most of us spend thousands on extras like threads, backings, hooping devices, and aftermarket frames. Learning to digitize , if you do other than stock designs, will also make your life easier in the long run. Both embroidery and digitizing have big learning curves to do it correctly. All of that said, we all had to start somewhere so it can be done. When you go to an ISS show, or similar, just remember that the vendors there are there to sell. Some pretty outrageous claims are made and I see lots of people think the machines and software do it all. That just ain't true:)
