Smile Re: Embroidery Machine

Sorry it has taken me so long to post. I LOVE this machine!! (Brother SE-400). I've been able to make all kinds of cute things. For my 3m old, it's 4x4" hoop is perfect. I've made a few things for friends, and the size doesn't seem to make a difference. If I want to add a name, I just re-hoop it lower.

Also, you DON'T have to use expensive embroidery thread. It takes regular old thread just the same.

Cute clothes. Those are the types of thing I would like to start making. I'm looking into what type of machiine to buy also. I then need to find out how to make all those cute types of shirts with it.

I have yet to learn how to sew. I really want to, I just have a lot going on. Between, my (real) job, a 3m old, making bows & these new appliques- I just don't have the time. I hope to learn on day. I love this machine because I can just plug it into the computer and hit go. It's really pretty simple once you mess up a few onesies! I attached the back to 3 of them before I realized out to hoop it correctly! I watched a lot of YouTube to figure out the appliques. There were a lot easier than they look. They are a big hit here for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Maybe when things slow down, I'll learn how to sew.

So this brother machine you can plug into your computer and do appliques that you can purchase and download online?

Yep, it's really easy. It has a bit of a learning curve with hooping onesies, but shirts/hats/bags are really easy! I buy my applique designs from a couple different sites. Most of them are .50-$2, so you really can't beat that. There is software you can buy to make them, but then you still have to take the time to make them. There are a lot of free appliques out there, too.

I'm looking at the Brother 770. I was thinking I would need the 5x7 hoop for some of the designs I've found that I really like. The cheapest I've found it is $600.

I have the Brother SE-350 which is the machine the SE-400 replaced. I love it but really wish it did bigger than 4x4. So I am looking into upgrading already.
