the following appeared on the yahoo pr-600/Emb-pro group... if you're looking at a second hand pr-600 II on e-bay or anywhere,please get the serial number... also if you happen to be in your local brother/babylock dealer perhaps you could pass this info along... they check the serial numbers on all machines that come in to be serviced... This is just a crying shame!!! Barb can be reached via the pr-600/emb-pro yahoo group...


I had a machine stolen this weekend in Canton, Texas. PE600 II I had only
had it a couple months. Theft by "friend" I am 99.9% sure. I was sewing on
my machines between one & two in the morning and they were stolen between
then and 7 AM.

Police report has been filed, insurance does not cover, not home owner's,
not my business insurance - nada. I have been on this list a while, but not
very vocal. I doubt anyone will happen across a suspicious machine, but if
you travel at all with yours chain it down or something. These people were
like family - I have been selling with them once a month for 2 years. Being
alone at the shows, I cannot reload my machine every night and I sleep in my
camper about 6 foot from the building/machine..
Brother PE600 II

Serial Number U60762-M5B120258

I purchased the machine in Benton, Arkansas.

Any red flags you can throw out will be appreciated!
