    • Not for Mac's

      The information on this machine says that you can use it with a MAC not so!!!!! The operating systems that the operational information book that came with this machine says that it will work with Vista, Microsoft 2000. This is an old machine for sure!! So disappointed!!!

    • Beginner

      I had never used an embroidery machine before purchasing the Brother HE-1. It took me about an hour to read the manual to make sure I was setting the machine up and using it properly, but it was worth it! My daughter's t shirt I was practicing on came out perfectly. I know that with practice, anyone could use this machine and get amazing results in minutes.

    • Love it!

      I love it. It's very easy to use. I was intimidated when I first got it... it seemed like so much to learn, but there are diagrams all over the machine, and it's very easy to learn. I was not personally fond of the patterns included, however, transferring patterns (and don't forget to download/save them on the machine!!) was easy. A few notes: You can run the embroidery pattern from your computer, or you can transfer and save each one individually. I find it a smidge of a pain to upload the patterns, but only because I have no where to put the laptop and the embroidery machine that I don't have to stand while I do it. I've only uploaded six patterns, which were rather large as they were free standing lace, but it was reasonably easy. 2nd:: I don't particularly like the patterns on i-broidery or whatever the Brother site is. All sorts of free patterns,and low cost patterns can be found (as well as patterns that I found to be cost prohibitive as well, but there are some really nice patterns to be had for less than $5). 3rd: I am still not positive if this is a 4x4 or a 4.something by 6. something embroidery area. I've kept my designs less than 4x4. The size does limit you a bit, but..there are tutorials on how to work around that, all over the net. I couldn't find tutorials specific to this machine, however. 4th: Cat tails will catch under the needle, even on a counter, where the cat shouldn't be. Cat may injure your machine when they're stupid enough to put their tail under the needle, if you aren't lucky enough to catch it. I'd say the machine is pretty low supervision, but really, that depends on whether you like your cats, and your machine...and want to ensure either one's safety. It's now inspired me to want additional machines, with more embroidery area.. so I personally expanded,and soon you can see a post on the Singer Futura 580xl.. I love my brother machines. I also have a cs6000i, which was a fantastic investment for the cost and is a little workhorse. Im hoping this machine is as much of a workhorse as the sewing machine is. Oh, and a side not... black long fluffy cat tail fur does not look good on free standing lack snowflakes. He was really mad.. too. This may not be an investment in your cat's emotional well being, but hey, he needed a come-uppence anyway.. I told him to stay off the counter. One more side note.. free standing lace will eat up your thread, fast.

    • Having fun!

      I have been looking at embroidery machines for sometime, but could not justify the price for just having fun with it. Enter the refurbished Brother HE1. My other two sewing machines, a Bernina and a Kenmore, were not even made this century, yet for regular sewing they are my go-to. This machine is quite a leap forward for me. I chose an embroidery only for the simplicity of such a machine and the lesser chance of something going wrong. So far, with the learning curve, I have only executed one butterfly in one color. There is a degree of operator error that can effect your results, but if you carefully follow the guides, you should do fine and preserve the condition of your machine. Love the price and the machine. Whee!

    • Perfect embroidery machine to fit my needs!

      I have always used Brother products. When I started looking for an embroidery machine, the refurbished HE-1 through Overstock popped up in my search engine. After doing some research, I decided to give it a try since it was well below my budget and seemed like it would be perfect to fit my needs. It arrived in original Brother packaging. I opened it and all original accessories were included and contained everything you'll need to monogram/embroider right away. I unpacked the machine from the box and it appears brand new, no signs of use at all! I read through the quick start guide and monogrammed within 15 minutes of opening the box. I have now been using my machine for about 2 weeks and I absolutely love it! I've purchased some monogram fonts from a website and purchased disks with embroidery designs and have been having a blast making art smocks, swimsuits, sweatshirts, towels, and more! I would recommend the refurbished Brother he-1 to anyone looking for a basic, easy to use, personal machine.

    • Almost perfect!

      I love it, the only thing that didn't work is the automatic needle threader. I did get the insurance on it, but I don't want to take it in for something so minor. If the automatic needle threader worked, I would rate it perfect. I am so glad I am able to use this with my Mac computer. Everyone said I would need Windows, but I don't. It works perfectly fine, I can buy designs from etsy or the internet, and transfer to the embroidery machine with my Mac no problem. It was such a good price, I couldn't pass it up. I think it's the same as the PE500, just a different name because some were sold the QVC - but I'm not sure about that. Love it! Rated 4 stars instead of 5 just because of needle threader. I can easily do it manually, but when you are changing threads a lot, the auto threader makes it go so much quicker. We use this in our children't clothing store.

    • Excellent machine

      I have been sewing for many years and purchased this as an intro. to embroidery machine. I am pleased with the quality of the machine, and the embroidery. Easy to use, and comes with everything you need to get started. It is relatively easy to move the fabric if you want to embroider words longer than the 4" space.

    • You keep skirting around the question regarding the operating systems this machine will work with....hmmmm....Will the machine work with a Windows operating system? If yes, why is it stated "works with Mac" but does not mention that it works a Windows Operating System anywhere?

    • i'm worried about buying refurbished. How reliable would it be? -Worriesome-

      • Hello skatergurl558, every product we sell as Reconditioned or Refurbished must pass a thorough examination. The original manufacturer or a professional outside firm repairs any defect on a Reconditioned or Refurbished item, returning the product to a like-new or almost-new condition. We sanitize Reconditioned or Refurbished products, if necessary. We check each Reconditioned or Refurbished item twice for proper working condition and quality. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know. Thank you for shopping with us!

      • Hello sgoodrich, yes this does both. monogramming and embroidery. Have a great day!

    • Can you upload new fonts from your computer to this machine? Thank you!

      • Hello, ashleydewey. This machine does come with some pre-installed fonts, and you can import your own patterns. Usually, the case with these machines is that they read new alphabets as patterns, making it so you can only embroider one letter at a time. Thank you for shopping with us!
