When I unpacked my new embroidery sewing machine, I was baffled and confused, since I had never owned a machine that was computerized or that can do embroidery. Wow! Now what? I grabbed my manual trying to figure out the embroidery set up for the Brother SE 400 Sewing Machine. I just push a few buttons, and away we go, right? Not exactly…there is a little more to it than that, as I soon discovered. Although, once you understand, it is quite a simple process. I thought I would dedicate this post to giving those of you that are interested, a quick, embroidery set up guide to get you started. I am enjoying my machine so much, and continually discovering new ways to create with embroidery. It’s just so amazing to me, to watch a machine stitch out an embroidery design that I have given it, with such precision and perfection.
Get Familiar with Your Sewing Machine!
It’s important to get familiar with your machine, and the manual is a great place to start, but I admit that sometimes manuals can be hard to understand. A video gives you a much more clear idea of how the machine works, and how to set it up for specific tasks, like embroidery. In the following videos, I wanted to present the basice for embroidery set-up, with a 2 part series. I intend to add other, more advanced, video tutorials in the future, including Embrilliance Software for Mac users, so if you are interested, I hope you keep watching our YouTube channel. Or, you can find all of our video tutorials right here, on our blog. Our tutorials include basics for sewing, embroidery, crochet, and we are adding some fun “how to” crafty home projects.
