H182354 - Brother PE770 Embroidery Machine
Worst product ever
I deeply regret ever purchasing this machine. I have had nothing but problems since I bought it. It is in the repair shop more than at home. Every time I use it I hold my breath that it will work properly. Would not recommend this product at all.
I am having so much fun with this embroidery machine! It does a beautiful job. Mine works great. I wonder if the couple of reviews with tension problems got lemons or if they are possibly not using a stabilizer material behind their fabric. I like using both the dissolveable stabilzer and the tear away kind. Also, I heard it is very important to always use embroidery bobbin thread. A spool actually comes with the machine. I use both regular thread and embroidery thread on top, but always use embroidery bobbin thread and a stabilzer material. I love my machine and am so happy I splurged and purchased it!
Very Disappointing! 2nd machine both had tension issues! Will never purchase this particular machine again
does not work as televised
The machine worked great on television, but did not work well in person. The machine constantly messed up patterns because the tension kept getting out of alignment. Brother customer service was not helpful and just seemed to read from a manual. It would be nice to talk to someone in customer service that actually used the machine and could identify what was causing the problem. Exchanged the first machine, received another, and the problems remained, so it was also sent back.
Love This Machine
This machine is incredibly quick to set up, get started, and embroidering like a pro. The on-screen tutorial helped me get started right out of the box. It comes with a spool of white polyester embroidering thread so that you can begin right away. The directions are easy to follow and the machine is fluid and goes without a hitch. The fonts and designs are basic, but enough to get started. I've purchased more fonts and designs on-line although they require software downloaded because it does not come with this machine. The transfer however, is quick with the USB. Also, more hoops need to be purchased because it only comes with a 5x7 (which is plenty for what I'm doing). I've only had this a short while, but I'm well on my way to getting my money back with the revenue it is generating.
If only I had a sewing machine
I made a mistake in purchasing this machine. i was not careful in reading the discription. It does not do regular sewing so I had to send it back. If I would of had a sewing machine, I would have definitely kept this baby. She is gorgeous!
I can not say enough how much I LOVE this machine. My husband got me this for Christmas, and can't get enough of it. Really easy to use. Easy to download designs from the internet. I have five kids, and two grandchildren. Needless to say it gets plenty of use!
LOVE MY MACHINE
I got this machine for Christmas 2010. I absolutely love it. I did not know anything about embroidering, never did it before and was able to embroier a towel in the first 20 mins after opening the box,and the was mainly the time it took me to put the backer on the towel and set the towel in the hoop and select my thread color. I did one of the preloaded designs and it came out beautiful. I have since downloaded more designs on my computer and transfered them to the machine and now I am addicted. Would highly reccomend this machine. Just make sure you use backer on your pieces and use water soluble on front as well as back on plush pieces. Something I learned along the way. ANyone can do this, even a young child with some help.
This machine does a wonderful job with embroidering. I've had mine about a year and no problems what so ever. It is user friendly. Once you get the hoop in ,the machine will do the rest. Just set your pattern and off you go. I'm getting ready to make some personalized towels for bath and kitchen for Christmas gifts. With all it does, the expense if very little. Won't find one easier to use. I also have the SE350.
