I got the 765 special edition a few months ago. I bought it mainly for quilting, but did select the embroidery module as my 'bonus'. (I'm taking a class next week to learn how to use that.),

What do you plan to use the embroidery for? I have embroidery on my current machine, and have used it a handful of times, but it is something I'd love to find a use for. They had samples at the sewing machine store of a quilt that they used embroidery on to do the quilting, and it was gorgeous, but it was quilted as individual blocks (maybe to get it in the hoop? I didn't ask why it was done that way) and then put together into a quilt, but I prefer seeing all the quilting on the backing as well.

Also, what sort of cabinet do you have the machine in? These machines are bigger than the one I have, although the drop-down space I have is just a shade larger than the machine width. I have a custom-built sewing room that DH built about 20 or 25 years ago at the other house, and we made sure that my sewing room in this house was designed to be big enough to accommodate it plus my work table, which he also built. I'm thinking he may need to rout out the hole just a bit to make it bigger so that I can get the machine in, but I was thinking I might be able to find a cabinet that he could see for dimensions.

I am slowly talking myself into this. I got my quarterly bonus yesterday, and the boss says I should just buy that machine! But the 770's are back-ordered, and I haven't asked about or seen anyone with a 765. Might be worth a few phone calls, however.
