Whenever you start a new hobby and skill, and especially when purchasing your equipment and supplies, do not forget to do your research. In fact, when you are getting started in embroidery, it is a good idea to see what incentives or embroidery freebies might be included when you make your purchase.
When purchasing a machine, see if you can get a “package deal”. Look over the incentives and see what is right for you. A good dealer wants not only to make the sale, but to create a happy customer (who will return to their store time and time again), so they are sometimes willing to work with you to create a custom package! Are they offering the embroidery software free or at a discount? Can they offer you some embroidery feebies such as free designs? How about a specialty foot for your machine? Will you be eligible for a “life time” discount by making a machine purchase at this dealership?
What about when you are not making a “big purchase” such as a machine…can you still find embroidery freebies? Of course you can! At some of the craft stores, locally or on-line, you will see that if your purchase reaches a certain dollar amount, you may receive your shipping and handling free, or when you purchase select designs, it might be a buy one get on free. Many stores, both brick and motor and on-line, offer monthly specials, take advantace of these! Usually when you are enrolled in a class the students receive special discounts on the class day.
