Sue Says "There are so many good features that make the Epic outstanding. One of the most important features is thread portioning and you are new to embroidery you will not be familiar with how important this feature is. This is exclusive to this brand whereby the system feels the resistance on the thread constantly and tweaks the thread flow when embroidering. This is particularily useful when sewing dense designs (ie candlewicking, lace etc). If insufficient thread is released by the tension disc, this is when you can get thread breakage or needle jam on other machines. This is also active when sewing. As an iPad user, I love the touch iPad screen and the Cloud WiFi connectivity. My favourite, favourite sewing technique is the unique sequin stitches and theme stitches and of course directional stitches. The complimentary software download enables you to create multiple sized embroidered letters from any font on your computer. These can also be made into appliqued letters. This software should not be underestimated. These are just a few of my personal favourites, the list goes on!".
