  • My little work horse

    I have had this machine for several years now and I love it. I have sewn all kinds of things with it, childrens clothing, housewares, craft projects, purses, tote bags, and small quilting projects. I never got very good at the embroidery feature. I thought the embroidery items that came with the machine were too small to be really useful. and changing the thread to get different colors was not very easy. I love all the decorative stitches the machine has built in. It is a great little machine.

  • Nice small machine

    This has been a good little embroidery machine. The actual size of the embroidery is small, but I knew that when I purchased the machine.

  • NIce little machine

    I really like the concept behind this machine. I just wish I had the patience to learn how to use all the functions. I have used it many times for basic sewing and it works pretty well. But Im giving it to my daughter so she can utilize the embroidery aspect, since she is more apt at that type of thing.

  • great value

    I'm still using this machine in 2010. I don't use the embroidery function that much. It's just a great electronic machine with lots of varying stiches.

  • Great Value and Incredibly Easy

    I have never sewn anything much less even thought I would ever know how do embroidery, but this machine is awesome...I had it set up and working fine in just one hour. This is my new hobby. The embroidery feature is easy after you figure out the tension settings and I have made awesome creations for my son. It is very easy to switch the machine back and forth from sewing. It was refrub. but looked just like new to me; I would recommendend to any new hobbyist. EASY and fun!! This is a very theraputic hobby; talk about stress relief.

  • I am surprised at how nice this machine works

    I bought this machine as just a toy while my 17 year old Swiss machine went in to a refurbishing( I paid $2500 for that in 1988). I also wanted to try out an embroidery machine to see if I really wanted one. So, I am used to a quality machine that delivers consistent stitching on a variety of materials. I am surprised at how well this machine sews, how much fun the little features are: automatic threading cassette, automatic thread cutter-what a blessing!. It took a few days to get used to the computerized screen after using a mechanical for so many years. The embroidery machine is very nice and also takes optional cards. It does a beautiful job. On the downside, it has a lot of plastic parts which may not be durable. Overall, this machine is a great value, fun, and easy to use. I am really surprised at how nice it is.

    We are waiting for our third machine. Overstock sent me 2 broken Brother SE-270D machines. They both arrived with loose packaging and the shuttle housing was loose, along with the bobbins and the covers, floating loosely. The first machine did not sew, and had uptake lever problems, which meant it looped the thread constantly around the bobbin, and got stuck constantly. The second machine's computer is broken and will not recognize Brother PE Design cards, or any format of card. Originally, during the first return, we had arranged to have the product shipped to us immediately on an expedited shipment, due to the bad product, so we could begin embroidering once again, immediately, however the process took over 9 days, and we did not recieve our shipment for 9 days, which was shipped regular UPS, and was not expedited. The second shipment has arranged for expedited shpment, and I have lodged my complaint. When I find out how the THIRD refurbished machine works, I will let you know. Other than Overstock's faulty, low-quality products, the machine is one of THE NICEST I've ever used. I'd never go through this trouble to get one, if I had not thoroughly (other than this time) enjoyed the use of the product. You can digitize images to embroider, and you can download them to a card, which is inserted into the machine, and read. So, you are unlimited as to what you can do. The software you use is called PE Design, and it's expensive, but it's worth EVERY PENNY. PED-Basic is a great program with a card reader/writer that you can write .pes files to and use on the machine, without having to spend $1000 on the PE Design. The PED-Basic runs about $140. I really loved using this machine. I am an experienced seamstress, and am very disappointed, however, in the quality of workmanship used to refurbish this machine for Overstock should take better care with such expensive merchandise AND when they tell a customer they will expedite an order, it needs to happen. Thanks for reading.

  • Brother SE270D

    This was my first time purchasing on I've been looking forward to an upgraded sewing machine for several months. I found this one on overstock and let me tell you, if it seems too good to be true - it probably is! I was very disappointed right from the start. I opened the box (all in tact and undamaged) I removed the machine and i noticed the seams weren't quite together on the right hand side. The turning knob on the right was off and the belt inside was loose and detatched. i placed the belt and the wheel on and started sewing. the first 5 minutes were great until it started jamming and the top thread would wrap around the bobbin. i stopped at this point and reboxed it and I'm now waiting for a return # to ship back. I was also disappointed in the plastic parts for such an expensive machine, the top plate and bobbin holder should be metal not plastic. it just didn't look as durable as i would hope. I must admit though the one thing i did like was the touch screen options and directions this made it quite easy to follow directions. Good luck to whoever purchases this machine - i hope I'm the only one who got a defected machine, so that you other sewers can enjoy it. For now I think I'll stick to my Janome - Patty B -

  • Best price on this machine

    I checked all over and this was the best price I found on this machine. My regular Brother sewing machine has been a workhorse. This machine looks just as well made although it is reconditioned. It's easy to figure out and to operate. I'm thoroughly enjoying learning to machine embroider on it.
