My Favorite Sewing Machine


Brother Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine, SE-400

I just wanted to share with everyone my favorite sewing machine. It’s the Brother Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine, SE-400 and it’s a game changer for creating your own monograms at home.

I purchased mine at for under $300. I’ve had it for about three years and it is fantastic. Wait until it goes on sale before purchasing it. I purchased mine for about $300, so wait for a good sale!

Amazon is currently selling the machine for about $308.00.

The Brother Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine (SE-400) makes an excellent addition to a hobbyist’s collection.
