Hancock Fabrics filed for bankrupcy in February and their liquidation sales began yesterday. That means that currently all of their sewing machines are 20% off. This includes the Brother HE1 ($279.99 today), which I mention because it is identical to the embroidery features of the machine I have.
(I have the SE400 which is also a sewing machine - see comparison here. However getting an embroidery only machine is totally fine because it's a pain to switch back and forth between sewing and embroidery so I recommend having two machines anyhow. )
The Janomi mini is also on sale ($63.99 today)! I have an older version of this machine (mine is teal) and have been tremendously impressed by it's ability for such a small machine. Perfect for travel, small quilting/mending projects, or a child's first sewing machine.
I paid $70 for my Janome mini, and $300 for my Brother SE400. Even keeping in mind that the HE1 lacks the regular sewing features, I would still consider this a very good deal on both machines - but if you want to play roulette, you can wait and see if they end up discounting machines further in a month.
