1st off I did a ton of research, and I just found that this machine was getting the best reviews of any out there. I had not used a sewing machine much but my daughter is having twins so I was willing to do my best to learn. The instructions in the box are not the best. I went to a local sewing store for advice on stablizer, thread, and needles. I also bought a bigger hoop, not that the maching will do bigger that 4X4 just because its easier to hoop and you don't have to rehoop to add a design to your project. Once I figured everything out I have been going non-stop ever since it was purchased. You can not beat this machine. I downloaded a free digitizing program off the internet (Stitch Era) bought the designs I wanted and went to town. My work looks as good as the professional Embroidery store. You have to do your home work to get the best results, buy good thread, stablizer and needles. This is the way to go, no dought!!!! Love my Brother!!!!

I am a novice sewer and I had been using an old machine before upgrading to this. What a difference!! All of the sewing functions are easy... automatic threader, easy bobbin winding and placement, etc. On top of a great little sewing machine, you get an embroidery machine, too! The two towel photos I uploaded were created with designs included in the machine. I also purchased the accessory that allows you to download any .pes design onto your computer and then place it on a card that inserts into the machine. There are limitless possibilities and lots of free designs available online. I have had a few issues with embroidery jamming, but I've figured out that you really must use the correct type of needle, a new needle, and the correct stabilizer for every fabric. I highly recommend this machine for any beginner to advanced sewer, as well as beginner machine embrioderers.

I've had this for about a month. I am brand new to sewing, I did have some basic training in high school 12 years ago. This machine is sooooooooooo simple to get started with. I watched the instructional DVD first and an hour later I was in business. Before this machine I had bought a Singer Futura CE 200 and WOW I hated it! Bobbin kept popping out and I cried! I sold it and thought I would try again since this machine had great reviews and my experience has been night and day. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I can already tell I am outgrowing the 4x4 hoop that comes with it for the embroidery. Transfering graphics from online to the machine is SIMPLE! You can find several free websites to get them. This is an awesome starter!

I was looking for a new machine when my 25-year-old Singer finally died. I was only familiar with the Singer brand and was a little leery about trying something new. My aunt had recently done a ton of research on new machines and she recommended this model. I am SO glad I listened to her and bought it. It has so many upgrades and features that I had never even heard of before, self threading, automatic thread cutting, drop in, self threading bobbin and a wonderful and easy to understand on-screen function panel. I have been going crazy with this little gem. In my house, if it isn't tied down, I've embroidered on it! Have only had time to do a few actual sewing projects, but it has performed flawlessly. I can not say enough about the value for the price. This is a fabulous deal.

I have had this machine for a few weeks. I am a complete newby when it comes to embroidery machines. I only bought it to do the monogramming on the baby blankets I've been making because I was sick of having a friend do it for me. It took me about an hour to get started going. With some practice, I am getting pretty good. The size of the font is the only limitation- if I want to have it be very big, then it either has to be a short name, or I have to get more comfortable with breaking it up- which can be done with practice. I've about got it figured out, I think. between the quick start guide and the instruction manual, it's got all the info you need. I have not used it for sewing, but the features are fantastic and I have read nothing but good reviews on the sewing feature. Overall, 5 stars. Great product for the price.

  • A. The machine has built-in designs you can use, but to add more designs you need to connect it to a computer and put the design into the memory. You won't get a lot of designs in the memory so be sure they are ones you really want to work with. In order to keep a lot of designs handy without going back and forth to the computer you will need a card system to put designs onto the memory card. Brother PED Basic card writer will work, but I use a different system which is available on the Internet that works the best for me because it holds far more designs on their card. I also use a free editing program from the internet to re-design some of my designs and also have the Brother BES2 Lettering program to change some of the designs to have lettering on them. I make about 250-300 small items every year for homebound folks so I like to add variety to the projects. This is my second Brother embroidery/sewing machine and I plan on buying it for two of my nieces who want to learn how to sew. It is far more functional than a dedicated sewing only or embroidery only machine and a great value for the cost.

  • A. It has built in stiches that you can use out of the box. If you want additional ones, you can download them from the internet or buy them. I think you can buy memory cards with designs also, but they are kind of pricey.

  • A. Yes it does and very nice they are too. You can buy cards if what is built into the machine is not enough and you can go to the brother library or the internet download any design to your computer then transfer them to your machine. However use quality threads recommended by your color chart. Non branded threads bunch up under the shuttle and i have had to cut embroidery out. But with good threads marvelous!

  • A. It comes with about 70 preloaded embroidery designs, and 5 different fonts for lettering. I took the machine out of the box, read the directions and set it up to embroider "right out of the box". Loved the ease of it!

  • A. You will need embroidery software to send embroidery to the machine from your computer. You may wish to purchase the brother embroidery cards but that can add up $$$ quickly. There are programs on the internet that range in price. I would start with PE BasicThat way, you can write your own cards if you don'at want to keep your computer or laptop next to the machine..

Does this machine have the assisted needle threading that thread the needle but requires a two-step process or is it fully automatic by the single press of a button? Also, does this machine automatically stop in the down position?
