Usually, embroidery takes more time when designing a pattern so you need good speed. 400 spm speed is quite appropriate for all professional work.

Usually, we do not think to attach a sewing machine with a computer or other external computerised machines. Brother SE400 allows you to attach your brother sewing machine with the computer. Company is giving connectivity with the computer device by data the data cable which you will get with the machine. The purpose of giving this connectivity is to allow the user to import their own design into the machine.

There are thousands of designs available in the embroidery industry. If you want to import your self made design into the machine and make an embroidery design on fabric then you can do so. Even you are also allowed to download any design from the internet and stitch it on your fabric with the help of this wonderful machine.

Stitching/ Sewing functionalities

This sewing machine comes with 70 built-in designs in it. Apart from that, you can import self-made designs or import designs from the internet in this machine.

It also includes 4″ x 4″ embroidery hoops and has 4″ x 4″ of maximum embroidery working area. This is enough embroidery area to make big and wide patterns on the fabric.

Embroidery work needs a good and smooth stitching mechanism. Brother SE400 give a perfect embroidery designed all the time. We have tested its embroidery on the full speed. We were pretty happy to see the beautiful outcome of this machine even at such a high speed. That is why this machine is one the best-known machine in the embroidery industry.

If we talk about it button sewing capabilities then let me tell you that this sewing machine allows you to sew 10 different types of buttonhole design. Usually, we get only a maximum of 4 buttonholes designs in a computerised sewing machine. But you can see how valuable this machine is, which is giving 10 buttonholes design.

Warranty & Services

People always look at the warranty aspect of the computerised sewing machines. In computerised sewing machine, it is important that the warranty should be of a good time period because computerised sewing machine has the electronic and computerised item in it. Computerised sewing machine also has software included in it. The price of the internal components may be too high that is why people need a long term warranty in computerised sewing machines.

Brother SE400 is neither giving 1 year or 3 years of warranty but it is giving you a huge 25 years of limited warranty. This is really surprising and good news of its buyer. Company is taking care of its machine for the next 25 years. No doubt there must be some Terms & Conditions with this warranty but it is usual. You will not get 25 years of warranty anywhere else. Apart from that the company also has customer support on email or phone call as well.


We may find tons of mind-blowing features in many machines but the question arises on its affordability. We can get the computerised sewing machine which is giving more features as compare to this Brother machine but when it comes with a price, this is the best. In brother SE400, you are getting tons of utility and convenient features at an affordable price.

The thing to consider here is that when you are getting more than basic features in a big brand sewing machine then why go for another company or another machine? The looks, design, features, service support and warranty are so adorable in this computerised sewing machine.

We always try to save money when it comes to buying any product for ourself. The important part here is this that we are talking about affordable price here but we are not settling for fewer features and specification. This is all we need in a good product.

Company brand name is also a crucial factor for people and everybody knows its valuable name in this industry. In spite of having a big brand, the company is not charging too much. In the end, I can say that this machine is the perfect machine with this price range.
