  • AWESOME MACHINE
    Verified Purchase

    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!!!

  • Excellent Value!
    Verified Purchase

    First, Overstock.com has the best price out there (I checked a lot of online and brick & mortar locations), especially if you use a discount coupon or have Club Rewards. The machine is brand new in the manufacturer's packaging. Second, I got this to have a second embroidery machine so I could sew on my Viking while still being able to do embroidery (instead of always having to keep switching back in forth on the Viking while working on a project). I am totally impressed by this Brother PE770. It produces excellent embroidery designs that look great! You do not need to have any embroidery software, although useful, it is not required. You can buy designs on Brother embroidery cards that insert into the machine or CDs/Internet and simply copy and paste onto a flash drive/thumb drive. They open very easily when you put the thumb drive into the USB port on the machine. As another reviewer mentioned, you can see some great videos on YouTube by Vince J Arcuri (search for Brother PE770 & you'll see several videos for the PE770...click on his name in one of the videos & it will take you to all of his Brother videos). There are also videos from other sources that are useful. Out of the box I was able to stitch out an embroidery design that I converted from a different format into a PES format. The design stitched out perfectly. I couldn't tell if it was done on my expensive Viking or the Brother. It's that good. Honestly. Lastly, the PE770 is not only a great second embroidery machine for experienced users, but an affordable option for those who are interested in getting into machine embroidery but not ready or able to invest a lot of money. It's really easy to use and the needle threader works great! It works better than the needle threader on my Viking (no joke). This is a solid 5 star positive review...a "no-brainer" in my book! :o)

  • Great machine for the money
    Verified Purchase

    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. Happy Sewing!

  • Absolutely the Best!
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • Minor Problem, Major Benefits
    Verified Purchase

    I received this PE770 Embroidery Machine. It's ready to embroider right out of the box. Set-up was easy, usage was easy and results - Excellent! I love the quality of this machine. I had have two embroider that cost much more than this one. I needed a large working area (5x7) and for the price of this system, I found this to be a bargain. I was a winner all around until 1 week later. The needle holder broke. I contacted Brother, Brother honored the 2 year warranty. I did have to find an authorized dealer which was 50 miles away. I should be mad, but if you see the quality of the embroidery on this machine and its capabilities, I excused this small inconvenience. The authorized dealer fixed the problem within 2 days. I am back in business embroidering wonderful designs. I Love it!

  • Great for home embroidery or very small business
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased this machine after having a babylock for 6 years. I debated on the Singer Futura, Janome, and this Brother model. I just found that the price point for what you get with the Brother was well worth it. I'm not saying anything against the others because I am sure they are fine machines but for about half the cost, the Brother has pretty much the same features. I have been using my machine for almost 6 months and have almost 2 million stitches used on it. If you are looking for something to run a full time business, this is not necessarily the machine you would want to use long term but to get started in a monogram/embroidery business, personal monogramming, or for a back-up to a commercial machine, this is what you want. This machine has worked quite well so far. My business really grew so I have since purchased a commercial machine but still use this as back-up. It's easy to use and requires little to actually get started. I have had an issue with thread breaking but only when I have used cheap, inferior thread. If you stay with a good quality thread, you should not have this problem. The most difficult part was getting the frame to clamp into the arm. You have to put it in just right or you will struggle trying to get it to click in place. Make sure to put the back on first. If you know very little about monogramming or embroidery, it is important to know that you can't use those cute fonts you buy online unless you have the software which allows you to do this. You can do the basic letters that are installed in the machine and you can do appliques but you will have to spend an extra few hundred dollars to get the program you need to create names, merge designs, etc.

    I went to this machine from a Brother with a smaller hoop size. This one has a 5x7 hoop which is very versatile for monogramming, gift projects, and in-the-hoop embroidery designs. Very easy to use with the USB access for designs. This is a great machine and Overstock has it for a great price. Try it! You'll be glad you did.

    This machine is AWESOME! I love it! I was looking for a nice embroidery machine. I also like that it is embroidery only. This one is more affordable and does all of the same things as the others then some. For example the ability to rotate embroidery in 1-, 10-, or 90-degree increments. 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. After upgrading from an old embroidery/sewing machine, I LOVE the USB feature! This machine is SO much fun to use! Just tried applique for the first time and it came out so CUTE! Going to be doing a lot more of that!

  • Great Price on a Great Product! Packaged well!
    Verified Purchase

    I am just learning to use this embroidery machine, but it is doing a beautiful job! I found out from calling ******* customer service that the PE-770 works best with 90 wt. bobbin thread and 40 or 50 weight top thread. I am glad to know this because I think some of the tangling etc... problems may be eliminated if the correct thread is used. Also any good sewing machine needle may be used. This may be elementary, but I have never used an embroidery machine before, and the manual isn't as detailed as I would like it to be. I was able to download some embroidery patterns, put them on a thumb drive, and ...voila... they were on the machine! I haven't stitched one of them yet, but at least I got that far. I have been doing regular sewing for over 50 years, but this is very different. There are some helpful videos on you tube that may help beginners. Happy Embroidering!

    This is a great basic embroidery machine for those who don’t want to invest hundreds more. I upgraded from a 15-20 year old 4x4” machine. I wanted the USB capability to get more designs from the internet, and also wanted the ability to do larger designs ( up to 5x7”). I also like that it has a card slot so I can use the cards purchased for my older machine. The black and white screen isn’t the greatest, but it can get the job done.

    I cannot even begin to explain how pleased I am with this machine. I have been shopping around for a LONG time and searching what seemed like a million different forums and blogs about embroidery machines. I am so happy that I chose this machine. You get your money's worth with this machine and the stitches are impeccable! Just tried applique for the first time (first time using the machine all together) and it came out so stinkin cute! I own a own small business making baby items and would DEFINITELY recommend to someone else looking for a simple, affordable machine that has a great performance!

  • Love my machine!
    Verified Purchase

    I love my Brother machine. It is very easy to use and I have had no trouble with it. The one thing that I wish I had known ahead of time is this: you do not need additional software to buy and import regular embroidery designs, but you do need to buy additional software in order to use outside monogramming designs. If you don't buy the additional software, you can only use one letter at a time rather than spelling names and words. There are many software options available, depending on what your needs are. I love the finished product that the machine creates. It looks completely professional.

  • Easy to use
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • Not as described.
    Verified Purchase

    Product was sold as new, but arrived used and repackaged in a plain box with no UPC for the rebate. Customer svc was contacted and was about as useless as the box it came in. I purchased this as a gift for my significant other and had it shipped to my fathers house, so she wouldn't see it. He informed me there was nothing on the box, it was just a plain box. This was sold as new with a mail in rebate. Hard to do with no UPC. I contacted customer service who just said it must be a mistake and I wouldn't qualify for the rebate and they had no UPC to give me. (Basically SOL) So I went to his house to look for myself, then I discovered the unit I received wasn't even new. It had almost 30,000 stitches done. Not very used, but I paid for new. It was then that I just returned it for a refund and decided not to use overstock again. I did get my refund without a restocking fee, as I should have. Guess I was dumb for ignoring the other crappy o.co reviews. Live and learn.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Does this come with a case?"

    • A:

      It comes with a fabric dust cover, but not a hard case.

  • Q:

    "Can I do regular sewing and quilting with this machine?"

    • A:

      This machine only does embroidery.

  • Q:

    "I'm confused about this product. A few people in the reviews said that it was necessary to purchase software. Why? If it includes built-in patterns, why do I need to purchase software? What else is needed to actually use this machine once I get it out of the box???"

    • A:

      When My Mother got me my 1st brother embroidery machine I went out and bought a Dakota embroidery disc and I couldn't get it to work from the computer to the machine when I called Dakota and asked why it wouldn't work. I was told didn't anyone tell you needed software, you have to have software in order for your machine to transfer the items to the machine. I use cards works for mine and the software packages, I also have letter works there all part of baby lock/singer. Just a few suggestions. A really nice place to find other things to do on the embroidery machine I use Embroidery Garden. I Hope this helps!

    • A:

      Thank you for your answer. I'm still not sure WHY software wouldn't come with the machines, but at least I know I need to get it.

    • A:

      Embroidery software is necessary if you want to alter a purchased pattern or if you want to make names or words. You can use free software available on the internet, or use a free trial of several different software options. I've had an embroidery machine for 6 months and haven't purchased any software.
