Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I would like to find a machine that monograms and does not cost over $500. All I want to be able to do is the traditional 3 letter monogram (larger letter in center) or a child's name, such as Charlotte (more than 6 letters, I've read some only do 6 letters). I do not want Disney characters and really do not need all the other embroidery things. Just monograms and names. Is there such a machine? I also want to be able to monogram a name that is larger than 4" long (I keep reading about a 4" hoop that only allows about a 3 1/2 " name. Can someone please let me know if such a machine exists?

My advice is to try going to a shop that sells machines and gives lessons for free. I bought from JoAnn's and they gave me lessons on it. I bought a Brother for $549 and I am not sorry because I actually know how to use it thanks to the girls at JoAnn's. I would not be using all of the features if I didn't have the hands on instruction. The manual is great for a refresher but nothing beats doing it and someone answering your questions. Think about it before you buy online, you may save a few bucks but in the long run you will be happy to have a relationship with people who care if you have a problem and can help you.

How do I set the stitch length and width. Have been doing as the manual said and doesn`t seem to work.


Sometimes you also need to change the foot as well for monogramming. Do check this in the manual.

Why is my bobbin thread showing?


Perhaps you should run your bobbin thread through the small hole on the lever that moves in and out. That is what you do when you sew a buttonhole, which is the kind of stitch a monogram makes. I haven't tried it because I don't do monograms, but it makes sense. Also experiement with the tension settings.

Applique and Letters (MONOGRAMMING) are two different things

I bought the SINGER FUTURA XL400 in august. It sews,monograms an embroiders. Sews like a dream with no issues. The monogramming part has me at my wits end. It skips stiches, leaves big loops an looks bad...


Be sure to install a brand new sharp needle before sewing. Check that the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible. An embroidery needle or top stitch needle may help.

When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot before threading to insure the thread seats in the tension disk.

Using my monogram machine


The one thing I've found is that when using the fonts stored in the machine, you need to treat each as a separate design. Then you would change the size of the Center Letter. I, too, wish the manual was more instructive. It is much easier to use a separate software program where you can create lettering and monograming. Do you have PED Basic, the program that allows you to download from your computer? That is a very good investment (about $150) and you can get free designs and download purchased lettering from different web sites. There is also a good site www.embroiderydk.com where you can join for a small monthly fee and create lettering and monograming. You also have access to over 7000 designs that you can download free whenever you want. It is well worth the price of $9.00 per month and you don't have to be limited to a bunch of emboidery cards or just the built in designs on your machine. One final idea...go the Brother.com and request more instruction on the embroidery portion.
