I bought the Brother SE400 without having any sewing experience. The instruction CD was a huge help and I've mostly been using the embroidery function (which is the primary reason I purchased the machine). It's been so much easier to use than I ever expected and I've learned on my own how to applique and embroider. It's been so much fun and I can't wait to learn new techniques and improve on my recently learned skills.
This is the best sewing maching I've ever used. The ease of changing stitches (from zig zag to straight, for example) is fantastic; the ease of changing the foot from regular to zipper is incredible; winding bobbins is easy and the drop-in bobbin feature is wonderful. The self-threader is something I didn't know I needed until I had it! No more squinting at the needle or hoping my arthritis doesn't kick in. The embroidery features are wonderful, and it is incredibly easy to hook up a laptop for downloaded patterns. I've just about finished my first major project with this machine (a Civil War uniform) and have been absolutely delighted. The machine tells you when your bobbin thread is about to run out, so no more surprises! I highly recommend this machine, and the price is amazing on Overstock!

I bought this machine for the embroidery function, which is great. What I didn't realize is what a great sewing machine this is. I have been using it for my regular sewing in addition to embroidery.
The internet is filled with free designs that you can use on this machine and the USB connection to a computer makes it so easy.

I am new the sewing world and I love my new machine. I've downloaded a bunch of embroidery designs and I am like a kid in a candy store! For a beginer machine I think its wonderful, if your looking for something to do big designs you need to go to a bigger machine. This machine does designs no larger than 4x4. You will enjoy it!!

I purchased the Brother SE400 for myself a few years ago and love the quick easy to follow instructions. The machine is perfect. I have gained more knowledge of sewing in two sessions with the Brothers SE400 than I have with any other sewing machine. I dont sew well or often, but this machine helped me to look almost like a professional. I was able to make superman capes with emblems for each of my grandchildren and they were over joyed. If you dont know how to sew, or have little experience sewing and little to no embroidery experience this it the macine for you. For those with extensive experience, I believe you would love the easy smooth way this machine works.
I love how quite this machine is! I've had several other basic sewing machines and I guess I just thought all machines were loud. The Brother SE is so quiet and the bobbin threading is the easiest I've had yet. I'm only a novice sewer but for the price this machine is amazing.
As I am an experienced sewer and I have two brother embroidery/sewing machines myself, I knew that this machine would be a great one to get for my daughter as a gift. It is user friendly, has easy to read instructions and is good quality. Read the manual well and follow what it says....important to learn the basics first and then you can start embroidering. This is a great machine and my daughter has really been having fun with it.
what is the difference between the SE400 and the LB6800. They seem to be identical machines minus the rolling case.mngallovine on Nov 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello mngallovine, the differences that I could find are that the SE400 has 5 monograms fonts, and it is lightweight. Overall, they have very similar functions. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 28, 2014
Hello. I know that this question was asked in 2013; is this sewing machine compatible with a MacBookPro? If not, are there any Brother sewing/embroidery machines that are compatible? Thank you.cardinalsfan1924 on Nov 17, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello cardinalsfan1924, the two ways that one could “use” a Mac with said machine are: download .pes embroidery designs from the internet and archive in Mac and use USB connectivity to send the design from the Mac to the machine Purchase Brother MacBroidery embroidery software to edit and create designs with or import designs purchased on the internet to size or enhance. Thank you for shopping with us!

1. could you use designs from like Dakota collectibles?
2. Could I take a picture of a dog and digitize it?
3. does it have anything that would help you sew in stages if you have to move your hoop for a bigger design?
I want one for Christmas :Dtrailyn on Oct 7, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I could not find that you can digitize images. You can import .pes designs from your PC. From what I found on the internet Dakota collectibles is in .pes format. This can only do 4-inch x 4-inch embroidery designs.
Have a great day!

Except for trying out one of the built-in fonts, everything I have embroidered thus far has been art I digitized and exported as .dst and .pes file formats which are native to this machine. In fact I would say this is the hardest part. The software I am using has a larger higher curve than the Brother SE400. I am blown away that I can take almost any design properly formatted and the Brother will sew it for me. Thank you for your question. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 27, 2013
