Check out YouTube. Maybe there will be something on there. Do you have a manual?

You can find the user manual here, in case you're missing it.

I have this machine actually. It does have an alphabet available. If you go to section 4 in the manual it will show you how to do the alphabet. Although I use Embird if I want to write out anything. I find it's easier to control things than just using the built-in alphabet features, but that's my personal preference.

ThinkGeek: "E-mail has been around since before computers. At first, e-mails were written on rocks and thrown at neighbors. CC-ing a rock e-mail could be dangerous for an entire village. Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around."

Practice with scraps of like fabric and the same stabilizer before attempting to embroidery any particular project.

You can find many tips, tutorials and videos at Embroidery Library at Techniques and Guides tab the top right of their screen.

Click Here.

You could also contact your local Brother dealer and ask if they offer lessons.

Machine embroidery thread and machine embroidery bobbin thread is sold in fabric shops. You can also find cut away, tear away and water soluble stabilizer there.
