    • 1 Star is still too high. Waste of money and time.

      Both machines have given me problems and now I have no machine because it's taking so long to be fixed thru the warranty. I would definitely advise against getting this machine. I received my first one and the instructional DVD would not work. I called Brother (which has the worst customer service) and was told to send the whole machine back and that they'd review the DVD and then send it back. I instead went to YouTube to learn how to work this machine. Then noticed that the embroidery foot was missing. I wasn't about to send it back for this so I bought one on line. Before I received the foot my automatic threader stopped working. It would not line up no matter what I tried to adjust. It looked like a small spring broke. I have orders to complete so I began to manually thread the needle. THEN the sewing part stopped working and the feeder also stopped. Luckily the 1st class customer service at Overstock replaced the machine. The new machine had all of the parts and the threader never gave me a problem. However, the embroidery carriage would jerk and skip. Then the sewing and embroidery was not working correctly. I was informed to call Brother- they advised me to go to their service center- one I would have never known existed of not for Brother. They were out a few days during the holidays (understandable) so I had to wait. Once I took it in I was advised that the warranty expired. Confused- I called Brother only to be met with poor customer service again advising that they did not tell me to go there. How did I know to go there I asked. So, I called OS back ad was advised that I do have a warranty, with them. I've sent the machine back pleading for a refund to go towards a different machine and maker. No again. So, I keep receiving emails from the warranty Asurion- who has had to send this machine back to Brother who has not been able to get the machine right twice now! Still waiting and still receiving emails that their should be ready soon. Soon. While I'm losing money for my small business. But what do they care. They'll just send me out another machine that is going to break again- I just hope it does before the end of my ending warranty. Do NOT get this machine unless you like disappointment. ***Update - 2/3/17 STILL receiving emails that they'll be finished with my machine. STILL losing money even after I've pleaded for a refund to go towards the purchase of another machine.

      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
      Verified Purchase

      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
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      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.

      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!!

    • Q:

      "Does this machine have an adjustable sewing speed? In other words, can you slow it down when you need to sew intricate designs or when sewing something very small?"

      • A:

        Yes you can adjust the speed by a little slider or put the foot pedal into the machine and you can adjust your speed that way also. The only stitching that has only two setting I believe is when you are embroidering. It's a great machine with a lot of variety with sewing and embroidering! Enjoy it! It is also very quiet!
