Brother Quattro 6000D, Stich Stich Stich!

When we're living in 2009, chances are you suck at sewing. It seems like kind of a lost art in a way and when you mastering an old sewing machine can be a real pain anyway. Really...

But with this gadget called Brother Quattro 6000D, you’d be a master seamstress. This beast of a sewing machine features a 7-inch HD LCD display and embedded runway lighting. It even goes so far as to have a camera next to the needle, letting you see close exactly what you’re doing, so you don’t mess up your stitches anyway.

There’s still no info on pricing or a release date as of yet, but I think we can safely say that it will cost quite a nice chunk of change. You may want to toil away on your old machine while saving some extra scratch. Get ready to stiching!

Too bad the computer industry doesn’t take over the sewing machine industry, because they are not getting the message. Embroidery needs to be generic USB drive(s) and the machine needs to recognize the standard graphic formats, especially .jpg so we can make our own designs using our own graphic packages. Tying a sew machine to an operating system that quickly goes out of date and using propriety file extensions is inefficient and costly to the end user. Notice how each company buries the operating system compatibility down deep in their website without mentioning future upgrades. Since the technology has been around since 1990, all the machines should auto thread, auto tension and fabric sense. Big whoop on the zoom function, it is already built in to Vista by using the control plus key or control minus key and is nothing that a magnifying glass does not cure at the machine.

These current price tags are ridiculous and costs more than 10 times my new notebook with a rate of depreciation that is faster than cars. Ladies, wake up and stop buying in order to force the prices down. We do all the hours of work and have to pay for all the materials, so why pay such exorbitant prices in order for them to retire on our nickel. Time to boycott to show them the female race has smartened up.

Just ask yourself how many clothes you could buy with the price of a new sewing machine. Can you go to Walmart, buy the embroidery patch and sew it on by hand? Isn't this amount of money better invested in a new car or college education than in a sewing machine with a very limited shelf-life.

Built in obsolesce and proprietary software went the way of flood pants. The men just are not listening to our pleas so time to withhold the money in order to get their attention. Spread the word!
