  • Exceptional!

    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.

  • The best sewing machine EVER

    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!

  • Perfect machine

    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.

  • Great machine

    This machine is very user-friendly. I have never operated a sewing machine in my life, but was able to get everything working right out of the box. The embroidery is very intuitive as well.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Love it!

    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!!

  • SE400

    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.

  • Awesome Machine...Everything I Wanted!

    I'm new to sewing and embroidery machines, and I've wanted to have one for a long time. I've seen reviews that say you can be up and embroidering or sewing in about 10 minutes...which might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it's close! After unpacking it, I was dying to sew something, and it was very easy to set up the bobbin and feed the top thread (my 5 year old son can do it now quite well! He just follows the numbered diagram on the machine and he has everything ready to go in no time...big helper!). If you want to embroider, you do have to change the foot, but even that isn't terribly difficult or time consuming. Embroidery is the main reason I wanted this machine, and it doesn't disappoint. There are several built-in designs (which is great for getting started and trying things out). However, I'm sure most people want to do more than just the built in things, and that's where there's a world of possibilities out there. Brother recommends iBroidery.com (which is fine, if you just want to easily pay-then-download things). But plenty of designs are available on websites like Etsy and others, and there are also plenty of free embroidery designs out there if you look. Not to mention if you are so inclined, there is software out there to make your own designs or tweak patterns a little (some are free, some are pay...just depends on what you want to go out there looking for and how much you want to tinker around). It's easy to connect the machine to your computer via USB cable to copy embroidery files over. I've never thought to buy a "card", but I suppose that would work as well. Very versatile machine, and the embroidery comes out so wonderfully!

  • This machine is great and easy to use

    I've never had an embroidery machine before so was a little worried that this would be difficult. The directions were so easy to follow that my first embroidery attempt turned out perfect. It is great for sewing as well. I'm very happy with this machine.

Hello trailyn, 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! overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 10, 2013

Does this machine support .dst embroidery files? gypsykatcha on Feb 26, 2013
Subscribe to Answers
Answer This Question

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
