Review:
This is a great machine. It is small and also does embroidery, but only 4x4. I love this machine, it has an auto threader. It has some pre-installed embroidery designs that are beautiful and also some fonts.

The auto threader works wonderfully. This is easy to sew with, is quiet and has an option to not use the foot controller. It has many, many stitches also of course.

It is small, so it is easy to take to any classes. Now I'm not embarrassed to take my machine to class.

Troubleshooting:
Once the auto threader did break, but it was only $11 to fix.

Brother has many similar models the SE400 is very common one, the Simplicity SB7500 is the most recent, the simplicity line is getting good ratings

The 950D is the equivalent to the Sophia 2. I looked at both of those when I was purchasing an upgrade machine about a year ago. I ended up going with the Brother 1250D (BL Ellure Plus)

This seems to be a very widely priced machine. PR reviews quote $400 to $950 and it's sometimes bundled with promotionals so hard to place a value on it. Have heard lots of positives on owning one. Thanks for your review.
