This machine is AMAZING! I love it! I was looking for a nice embroidery machine, I compared this one to some of the Babylock and other brands and this one is far more afordable and does all of the same things. My Stepmom has a babylock ellure plus which cost almost THREE times the cost of this one and they do the same things with the exception that this one is not also a regular sewing machine as well. But to tell the truth I prefer it this way. I can work on regular sewing while this machine is embroidering away! It is SO easy to use, the first day I got it I was able to get some embroideries going and they looked great! Stitching is beautiful and directions are simple. I'm sure there are a million other things this machine does that I haven't figured out yet, but so far its great! I LOVE the USB feature, I have embroidered so many free designs it pays for itself not having to but the cards! If you want a good machine at a reasonable price this is it! It's great!!!
I purchased this machine after searching for more expensive machines. The PE 770 has a lot of features that some of the other high end machines don't even have, such as a thread cutter. The 770 stitches out evenly and efficiently each time I use it. It is a great machine for the beginner looking to start machine embroidery. I have used it to make applique tshirts for my little girls.
My only complaint is that the instruction manual does not really explain how to hoop anything other than a flat piece of fabric. I had to do an online search and found out how to hoop different materials such as a tshirt and a towel. (don't hoop the item, use a sticky back stabilizer, hoop that, and then attach tshirt to the sticky stabilizer outside of the hoop.) (towels need 3 layers of stabilizer, sticky back in the hoop, an iron on light tack stabilizer attached to the towel that you place on the sticky stabilizer in the hoop so that the sticky back doesn't pull the loops out of the towel when you remove it, and a water soluble stabilizer on top of the towel so that the stitches don't get caught in the loops of the towel.) phew.
I am very happy with this machine so far and highly recommend it. I have found that I would like a little bit more creative control in the designs and am looking into purchasing compatible software to manipulate designs myself.

This is my third brother machine and I am definitely a fan of their products. This machine replaces my Innovis 900D for embroidery. I wanted an embroidery only machine so I wouldn't have to switch back and forth from embroidery to sewing. This machine also has the 5x7 hoop which I will use often too. My Innovis 900D uses a cable and USB port, while this one uses a flash drive, but I had no trouble learning to use the flash drive. Since all my Brother machines are basically the same, I had no trouble learning to use it, and was doing a sample embroidery very quickly. My only complaint is that the supplied 5x7 hoop is hard to use. I have much better luck with the Elipse brand with 4 sizes of hoops that I purchased elsewhere. They are very easy to put in place. I highly recommend this machine--it is definitely worth the money.

I had an older model, different brand embroidery machine. I needed to upgrade and I did a lot of research before buying. I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money but I wanted good value for my money. I think this machine fits the bill. I really like it and it is easy to use and does a good job. I love the usb port. I used to have trouble downloading designs with my other machine, but the usb port makes it a breeze.

I had purchased another name brand and had to return it twice to a different company. I was upset because I really wanted a good embroidery machine for making gifts for family members. I took a chance on this since I had read a lot of great reviews and a few not so great. The biggest difference between this machine and a leading competitor's machine and this one is more user friendly for the lay person. I had been a seamstress for many years....but had never embroidered with a machine before. The competitor's machine beeped continually and the second one kept giving off an odor like plastic was burning. I have not had any problems with this machine....and....it was cheaper than it's competitor!
I had also read a lot about what threads are good or bad. The competitor's machine is very finicky about what thread can be used or it will mess up the bobbin etc. But, to be honest, with the bad luck that I had with the other machine, I was afraid to invest in a lot of thread until I knew that this machine would work. So, I went to my local Walmart and bought small spools of their embroidery thread to practice with and it worked great....so even the cheaper thread worked well with this machine! I am so impressed and happy. I know that I will be making lots of Christmas gifts using the PE 770.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. It worked fine right out of the box.
I have never embroidered before and am not very good at sewing, but this machine is so easy to use that my designs look great. I did have to adjust the tension for the bobbin as half way through 2 designs the thread was bunching up on the bottom, or the machine would struggle to stitch. Once this was resolved it was happy embroidering!
This machine is fantastic! I have only been embroidering for a few months and already saw the "need" for a 5x7 hoop. So user friendly. Having already had a Brother there was no learning curve, just hoop it and go. Highly recommend!

I want to purchase a machine that will embroider our logo on some items. My logo is on my computer. Can I transfer my logo to a flash drive and then load the logo into this embroidery machine from my flash drive. Can I then store my logo into the machine for multiple jobs.floydroseandjack on May 17, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

This is a monogram question, too. Actually, it is the same as "nana9290" -grandyjcac on Jan 14, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello grandyjcac, This machine has received excellent reviews! As long as the lettering being done is within the 5 x 7 field of embroidery, you can do more than one letter. However, the letters are done one at a time by the machine. I hope this information helps. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 15, 2014

Hello mamcnabb, In reading through the manual, we do not find where the machine cannot be used to embroider on fleece. It only mentions to use a stablizer material when embroidering on stretch material, thin material or fabric with a loose weave. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 27, 2013
Yes it can and does great. I've had this machine for about 2 years. It does a beautiful job. It has been a bit of a learning curve on stabilizers, I could have benefited from a class, but have figured it out myself over time. I have been happy with everything this machine does!pambulmann on Dec 26, 2013

no you need to buy a lettering program like letter it.....bagnall on Aug 13, 2013
Thank you, bagnall- that is the answer I was looking for! Any idea where I can buy such a program?avonmomma688 on Aug 13, 2013
If you're speaking of the SE-400, I have the same model and have had no problem inserting a space. It appears as an underline in the font menu.jrsstudio on Sep 18, 2013
I have 2 questions...
1. Can the 5x7 hoop be rotated either direction? Meaning...can it be used vertically (5x7) as well as horizontally (7x5)?
2. Is there a built-in basting stitch on this machine..where the basting stitch can be done automatically?
Thank you!menewbie on Apr 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us menewbie. The hoop is placed in one direction only (5” x 7”). The PE-770 is an embroidery only machine. To answer the question, does the machine have a basting function, I have to say “yes”. If one wants to “baste” the fabric to the stabilizer before embroidering, one can use a Frame pattern with the straight stitch, that will baste the two layers together and then you can embroider your design. This machine does not have the Embroidery Edit feature so this has to be a 2-step process. If the machine did have the Embroidery Edit function, then you could combine the two functions. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 12, 2013

Will this machine run with a stop and start button, or do you have to use a foot pedal?lani2u on Dec 18, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
As opposed to a traditional electrical sewing machine, there is absolutely no foot pedal to begin with and function the machine -- you simply media a button. You can even start the machine and turn it on on its own whilst it sews the design to suit your needs.
You will have to change the color of the actual thread if you utilize more than one coloring for the design and style, so I do not suggest you go out shopping and expect the project to become finished with your return...
Nearly all machines consist of some built-in models such as alphabets that can be used for monogramming and you'll purchase designs of virtually anything from Disney characters to wild flowers. You can even download patterns from the Internet on memory credit cards that you can after that insert in you machine. The particular Brother PE770 performs this and in fact it is one of the few devices on the market that mixes both the embroidery and conventional sewing within a machine. In some devices you have a look at a style and design onto your computer, then scan it for embroideryoverstockcustomercare1 on Dec 19, 2012
