Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Not much direct help from here, but my wife uses a...
product ([link|http://www.pcquilter.com/|a robotic quilting platform for a sewing machine]) which is controlled by a bi-directional parallel port and runs on XP as well as earlier flavors of Windows. The product, including all the hardware and related software is about $1100. So, obviously these folks found a way.
