  • machine was broken upon arrival

    timing was off, and there were multiple errors from there when using the embroidery part. over one year of trying to use it and finally sent it in because i had purchased the 2 yr platinum protection plan and they realized that this is not normal, nor was it user error. i was told it would be back to me in seven to ten business days. i have been jacked around for over a month and was finally notified that overstock/asurion LOST my sewing machine. they can not locate it and i continue to sit and wait while my "to sew" pile grows. i fully believe that i will never get my machine back, and will only get a "credit" that will not be enough to purchase a new (even a new refurbished) machine. spend a little more and buy somewhere else, and if you love to embroider, buy the pe770 or higher. se425 only has a 4x4 hoop size and it can be difficult to fit what you need into that small of a space. BUYER BEWARE.

  • love this machine

    Decided to upgrade my sewing machine as I was recovering from surgery and bored out of my mind. Love the machine, enjoy the embroidery functions. Easy to use. Only problem is the needle threader quit working, no big deal but I sure miss it when embroidering with all the thread changes.

  • Positive review

    I have been looking for some time for embroidery sewing machine that would be suitable for a beginner and that would be reasonable priced, as I couldn't find any where I live that were under €1000, decided to give this a go. I forgot all about the Plug on the Machine as I live in a different Country but was able to find a way to combat that Im very impressed with the quality of embroidery with this machine. Remembered reading review about how bad delivery's were and while I was given a date for arrival it arrive well in advance of that date , have found this service excellent and wouldn't hesitate to recommend site to friends

Questions & Answers

Get your product questions answered right here.
  • What is the largest embroidery size that you can make with this?

  • Does this machine come with a cord to hook to a computer to get more designs?

    • Hello tubamum, unfortunately this item is out of stock. We currently do not have inventory to check, and cannot guarantee the item will be restocked. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • Can you use the USB port to see the embroidery area on a computer screen? What hoop size does it accommodate? Thanks!

    • Hello KBCooks, I'm sorry this does not have that feature. You would just plug it in to get new embroidery patterns or system updates. Wow I just watched a bunch of videos on this machine and now I want it! Make sure to go to the brother web site and look at all the free downloads. This comes with a 4x4 embroidery hoop. Have a great day!

  • Why did you choose this product?

    • Have been looking for embroidery machine to provide worksheets and jackets with logos for my husband's business. This is perfect.

  • is this still under the 25 year manufacturer warranty?

  • Difference between this and SE400 machine?

    • Hello jeant, there is a bit of a size difference between the two, also the SE400 has only 67 stitch functions vs the 90 stitch functions on the 425. The 425 is a couple of pounds heavier. The 400 exclusively uses a 4.4 hoop. Thanks for shopping with us! A.S.

  • Can you tell me the differences between the RSE425 and the LB6800PRW? They both seem very similar...I am wanting one to download from my computer for embroidery patterns and that will also do some quilting as well as sewing. Also, is there additional software I would need to but with either of them to download from the internet?

    • Hello jkaywiz, oh I would love to have this! From hat I can see they both have the same features. Both of these machines will do what you are looking for. Have a great day!

  • Can you use a thumb drive with this machine?

    • Hello shofer, this does have a usb port. Thanks for shopping with us! A.S.

  • What is the difference between rhis machine and the Brother SE 400?

    • Hello shofer, I hope your day is going well. The 400 is a little more expensive and appears to have less frame patterns and uses exclusively the 4.4 hoop. The 400 appears to be more for people who embroider and want a machine that leans towards that application but can do any sewing functions as well. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • The SE400 and SE425 have the same machine specifications. The only difference between the two machines is that the SE425 comes with four bobbins, a zig-zag foot and CD with extra embroidery designs. I also noticed that Overstock Customer Care claims the machines ship with just the items listed. I have a problem with this statement, because I have personally talked with Brother's and they told me that when they refurbish a machine, they make sure the machine is brought right back to the same condition as when it came out of the box new complete with accessories. They told me that not all dealers include the proper accessories on refurbished machines, however, if you need any item that is missing, you can contact Brother's directly and they will ship these items to you at a fairly low cost. For instance the entire accessory kit runs around $110, the CD's alone are $10 each plus the cost of shipping.

    • Hello deandeb96, This ¬†machine has 98 stitch functions. Thanks for shopping with us!

  • Does this come with the extra 100 images on a cd?

    • Hi raejoshgavin1, No, it does not. It does come with an instructional CD. Thank you for shopping with us.

  • I am new to the embroidery concept, so please forgive the naivety of this question. If I had clipart in an image format (jpeg, bitmap, png, etc.) on my computer, would I be able to embroider such an item from these images?

    • No. You must use digitizing software to convert the image into a stitch file that the machine can understand. You can purchase designs in .pes format to use with this ,achine. You will need a card writer box like PED Basic to put the designs onto a card for the machine to use.

    • To edit my answer below, you do not need a card writer. This machine will use a cable to transfer designs.
