RE: Brother SE400

Thanks for the manual. How to download the manual from there?

Hi guys,
This is my first post, so go real easy with me!!

I am looking to upgrade to a sewing machine that offers embroidery functions. Top of my short list is the Brother SE400. It’s not the most expensive machine in the world, but it’s expensive enough for me.

I was wondering whether anyone here has tried it out and got any user reports for it – it’s always good to hear the good the bad and the ugly about a machine before diving in.

Anyone…?


As for now you can look for the newer upgraded model to the SE400, the SE625. It has a color touch screen display, more stitches, more embroidery designs, and even includes a disc with even more designs. Plus, it accepts a standard USB key to install even more designs you can download from the internet.

You may want to consider Embrilliance Essentials. It will allow you to combine designs and it comes with 12 fonts. You can also purchase additional fonts for the software. https://www.embroiderydesigns.com/productdetails/BriTon-Leap/DLSoftware/1/ATG40238.aspx

RE: Brother SE400

I have a HE240 (from HSN) which is the same as the SE400 Brother machine. I would like to know what software I can use with this 4x4 hoop machine that would put the 3 monogram letters together as one design.

RE: Brother SE400

I got this machine for my birthday. I love it. Right at the moment, I'm using it just for embroidery projects. I had the Brother SE270D and hated the embroidery but it did just fine for sewing. When I started quilting and bought a new machine for quilting, my son wanted me to have the ability to add embroidery so that was the reason he got me this machine. My old embroidery machine did not connect to my laptop and my son thought was too limiting for me. Now, as far as the 4 x 4 hoop. I bought a 5 x 7 hoop and it works just fine but maybe it's my embroidery software. I worked overtime so I could afford the Embrilliance software and it was worth every penny I spent. The software will adjust the designs to what size I want so I'm enlarging stuff all the time. Now back to the Brother SE400. It's not that hard to use. My initial problem was using the needle threader but once I figured it out, I'm a pro threading my needles. I taught my 14 year old granddaughter how to embroidery with that machine. She was very fascinated and caught on quickly, with the exception of threading the needle. That threader is touchy.

RE: Brother SE400

Did you know that we can resize designs purchased from our website at no extra charge? The 4x4 hoop has a max. stitch field of 3.93". Any design that is over 3.93" will show on our website as needing a 5x7 hoop. It is always best to look at the actual design size, any design 4.90" or less can be resized to fit a 4x4 hoop. If you would like to have a design resized after purchasing from our website, call or send us an email and include the order number,the format needed, and the request to resize the design.

RE: Brother SE400

I've had this maching for about 6 - 7 months now and I LOVE it. The more I use it the more I learn. I was afraid at first, but now it's growing on me! I only wish I could use bigger hoops. But I'm not going to buy a bigger machine. I'm happy with what I can do.

RE: Brother SE400

I have a Brother SE400, I am having trouble saving and downloading a file to a memory card. I purchased the PED- Basic, but nothing is transferring to the card. I need someone with patience to give me a walk thru. Desparate. is there like a class or some simple instructions. Every one I try use on line isn't working. not sure if card or card reading is even good.

RE: Brother SE400

I have this machine and am not disappointed I did, I didn't want a huge embroidery area to start with and love the fact it's also a sewing machine so can be back up if one of my others is having a service. Not disappointed in the quality it embroiders either.

RE: Brother SE400

I bought the se400 because of its capabilities and price. I love it myself and the only complaints I have read is the 4by4 hoop, everyones wrote they would rather have a larger embroidery area but for the things I make it suffices for me. It is quiet whether you embroider or sew. It is simple to download files and save on your computer. There is a free program to do that. I havent gotten any of the digital software for it yet, dont really need it, I find plenty of designs for free on the internet and buy the ones I like on sale for special projects I have or just have to have for later use. Lol Hope that helped, good luck and happy embroidering
