The one single needle single head machines appear to be the norm for embroidery sewing machines. The one needle machines are cheaper and more popular for home use. The one needle models will only allow you to use one spool of thread so you have to change the thread each time you wish to use a new color. For the home embroidery user, this is usually not an issue.
However if you are planning to get into the commercial embroidery business, you'll want a product that is multi-needle definitely. They are considerably faster plus much more accurate than the single needle models and you will be able to use several colors simultaneously without having to manually change over while stitching. This is a huge time saver and in the embroidery industry time is money if you want to run an efficient and profitable business.
The one needle embroidery machines will be the ones that I am going to look at in this article. I am a home embroidery machine user which I do in my spare time, so time is not the most important factor and I am not looking for a machine with all the bells and whistles. I need an embroidery machine that can do the job at a reasonable price. Ideally, that would be a dual purpose sewing and embroidery machine.
If you are looking for an embroidery machine today you have many options. In the not too distant past only commercial machine had multi-needle options ad that were way too expensive for the home user. Now that has all changed with the advent of machines from Brother and Singer aimed at the home user with multi needed options and combined sewing and embroidery models
