Sewing, Sergers, and Embroidery Machines?

Hi everyone! I am seriously thinking about getting a serger and an embroidery/sewing machine. I currently have a Singer Simple and it works great, but I want to embroider also. I have seriously been considering the Project Runway Limited Edition LB-6800PRW Sewing and Embroidery machine. Do any of you have this machine and if so what are your thoughts on it? Anyone interested in selling one, or one similar to it?

Next is the serger. The serger that I have been looking at is the Project Runway Limited Edition 5234PRW. The serger is not available until October, but I am thinking about adding this to my wishlist for Christmas :] Any thoughts on this serger or any sergers? Anyone willing to sell one similar to it?

The next thing that I wanted to talk about was the fact that I have a sewing machine that I plan on selling once I get around to purchasing the Brother Sewing and Embroidery machine. It is a Singer Simple and it comes complete with extra bobbins and a cover. 

Here are a few of the features:
  • 23 Built-in Stitch Patterns: 6 Basic Stitches, 11 Decorative Stitches, 5 Stretch Stitches, 1 4-Step Buttonhole plenty of stitches for any project
  • Automatic Reverse: Automatically sew in reverse and reinforce stitches
  • Automatic Needle Threader: Easily threads the needle without frustration or eye strain
  • Adjustable Stitch Length and Width: Adjust the desired stitch length by a simple turn of the dial
  • Adjustable Tension: Ensures excellent straight stitch quality regardless the type of fabric sewn
  • Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control: Sew from lightweight to heavy fabric without making presser foot pressure adjustments
  • Snap-On Presser Feet: Quick release for easy on and off change presser feet in a snap!
  • Heavy Duty Metal Frame: Rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect sewing and durability
  • On Board Storage: The removable sewing bed means accessories are always handy
  • Free Arm: Provides professional results by offering easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas
  • Center Zigzag Taper: When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, not the left or right
  • Twin Needle Capability: When using an optional twin needle, parallel rows of straight stitching can be sewn for hemming or to add a decorative touch
  • 5-mm Stitch Width : Decorative and satin stitches can be set to 5-mm wide making are bolder and more pronounced look
  • Multiple Needle Positions: Can be changed for individual projects, such as inserting zippers or cording and topstitching
  • Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter: Offers more clearance for multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot
I would like to get around $100 for it including shipping, but I am willing to make a deal, so if you are interested email me at ashleysbookshelf at gmail dot com and make me a deal :]
Peace and Sewing,
