  • A Great Starting Point For A Beginner Embroiderer

    Dec 27, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price and built in functions.
    Cons: Quick Load Thread Cassette.

    Summary: I'm not married to Martha Stewart, but I could very well be. My wife is a domestic diva in her own right-a self-taught quilter who also sews home decor items that are constantly admired when guests visit our home. She has been valiantly sewing her ... read more

    Pros: Ease of threading the needle
    Cons: can't think of anything negative

  • Great starter embroidery machine

    Nov 24, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy set-up, easy to use. Great warranty (25 year).
    Cons: Would be nice to be able to use larger hoops.

    Summary: I love my SE-270D! The cartridge is not hard to use once you do it a couple of times. It does not care a lot for the shiny threads (rayon)..but with a bit of "coaxing" (mumbling under the breath works)...it complies nicely. It does make you want a ... read more

  • I Love Brother!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth sewing, quiet and easy to use.
    Cons: This fun machine makes me want to spend more time than I have sewing!

    Summary: This sewing machine is amazing -- so sturdy and quiet with all the modern features like automatic threading, up/down needle position button, drop-in bobbin, quick thread clip button, etc. (well, modern to me since I used an old Kenmore before getting ... read more

  • Sounded too good to be true!

    Sep 22, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: This would have been a wonderful machine, if and when it worked.
    Cons: Brother has wonderful products, this wasn't one of them.

    Summary: It was. I have had nothing but problems with this machine. The first one would freeze up when I used stubby cone thread with the adapter. The thread wrapped around the spool holder which pulled the thread tight and cause me to pop needles left and ... read more

  • LOVE this machine!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: All the features. Low cost. Disney designs. Easy to use.
    Cons: The fact that I didn't buy it sooner!

    Summary: I've had a basic Singer for the last 10+ years. Finally decided I wanted something more. I wanted some of the bells & whistles (up/down needle, self threading, self cutting thread) without paying thousands of dollars. I also was hoping for alphabet ... read more

    Pros: There is not one good thing I can say.
    Cons: Everything!!!!

    Summary: I bought this machine and it worked fine. I decided to try to upload pes files I purchased from the internet, like the book and brother website says it can do. That was a big mistake. All it did was make massive balls of floss on the back of the material ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It's cheap.
    Cons: low quality constant problems not worth the frustration

    Summary: I purchased my first 270d online. I had it for about 3 weeks before I had to return it. Luckily it was within 30 days so I didnt have to pay for shipping. I pulled the replacement out of the box and it was already jammed in the needle down position ... read more

    Aug 11, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sews and embroidery in one machine, relatively inexpensive, and great customer service.
    Cons: You quickly become addicted and need more supplies for projects you can do.

    Summary: The first one I purchased at Walmart I had only a couple months before it had problems. It would stop in the middle of the embroidery design, give me error messages, the LCD screen would stutter, turn blue or even go blank, and the machine would freeze ... read more

    Pros: inexpensive
    Cons: Very difficult to set up to embroider following the instruction manual.

    Summary: I bought it because it was inexpensive. It is difficult to insert the thread cassette, difficult to thread the cassette, difficult to insert the embroidery loop under the needle. The needle was put in so tight, it was hard to get out. A piece broke ... read more

    Pros: Can't really think of any.
    Cons: It is a piece of junk!

    Summary: I am currently on my second machine (I had to return the first one because the automatic threader quit after only 3 weeks). I have had more problems with this machine than I ever had with my $99 Singer. It seems to have a gremelin or something because ... read more

    Pros: cheap price???
    Cons: I had my machine for 6 months then the machine locked up.

    Summary: It's the truth, It is a great fun item when it works! You must use only one size thread to get the auto-threader to work, and it jams up! I had my machine for 6 months then the machine locked up. Took it in to get repaired and the part was on backorder ... read more
