If you want to try your hand at a little bit of machine embroidery without investing tons of money in a machine, the PE500 is the one for you. (Amazon was offering it at 50% off, at $299 a tremendous incentive to buy.) This embroidery machine comes with a medium-sized embroidery hoop, 2 pre-wound bobbins, 3 spools of embroidery thread, 3 stabilizer sheets, a small scissors, plus the usual Brothers grab bag of essential sewing machine tools. There are only 70 designs pre-loaded on the machine, but you can do monogramming in your choice of 3 different alphabet styles and acquire more designs via embroidery cards or transfer them from your pc via the cable that is included in this package. Many more designs can be obtained from Brother's ibroidery website. Unlike a couple of other Brother sewing machines that I've used in the past, bobbins wind smoothly and evenly with a minimum of fuss.

Having problems? With a push of a button, help screens are easily accessible - right on the machine itself!

This machine is a delight to use, but if it doesn't stitch first check the upper threading. The tension at point #2 (diagrams for all threading are painted on the exterior of the machine) can be tricky. If you have the presser foot down, there is a good chance that your thread isn't on the right of the little metal bar. There actually is a take-up bar at point #4 that is recessed into the machine (Shades of those old Singers in Home Ec classes from eons ago!) and the thread must pass from right to left when it catches in there. Well, at least we don't have to actually push the thread through a little round hole anymore. If it still refuses to sew, gently remove the hoop from the embroidery unit and check the bobbin at the same time that you cut all the trailing threads underneath.

The embroidery quality of the machine is beautiful (on what I've done so far- which is just broadcloth). However, beware of the "4x4" embroidery area claim. It has the CAPABILITY to do 4x4 inch lettering, but you have to purchase additional software to get it to that size. The largest letter is will do is 2.54 inches. I called brother and they just said I'd have to buy the software (which is $399 for the "cheaper one". I was very disappointed because one reason I wanted an embroidery machine was to monogram a 4 inch (or close to it) letter for my children's Christmas stockings. Also, of the 70 designs that come with the machine, almost half are just fancy letters. I would recommend this machine for it's embroidery quality, just know what your getting as far as it's capabilities. If you've never embroidered before: You need a good stabilizer... the one that they offer in the "what people frequently buy together" package is absolutely horrible! It does not work at all! I would recommend the kind that comes with the machine (they only give you 3 sheets). It is called "Pacesetter Premium Mid-Weight Tear Away Stabilizer Pre-Cut Sheets"; it worked awesome, Hope this review helps someone ☺!

I have had this machine for about 3 months now and I actually like it better then my Brother PE770. I like my PE770 cause it can embroider up to 5x7" designs. The Brother PE500 has a maximum embroidery size of 4x4". I had it working within 5 minutes of taking it out of the box. I had my PE770 for 2 years and it was never opened when I got this machine...I was scared to take it out of the box. After using the PE500, I couldn't believe that I was intimidated my machine embroidery. The PE500 has a self threader that has worked for me every time...my PE770's threader has never worked for me yet. The only thing I don't like about the PE500 is that you have to connect it to a computer to load designs...it has some nice designs preloaded on it already and a few fonts too! The memory in it is capable of holding 12 more designs that you load onto it...if you want more, you have to delete some. All The Brother machines use the .PES format, and once you get this machine, you will go crazy searching for designs.The PE500 is so easy to use...it might take you a few ruined projects to get used to your machine, but practice on old scraps of fabric and get used to stabilizers and what kind to use with each fabric and you won't regret owning this machine! This machine will make you become an embroidery junkie!!!! Before you know it, you will be wanting a bigger machine! After playing with this machine for a week, I finally opened my PE770. The PE500 was much easier to get used to. This machine takes regular sewing home machine needles. If you have any troubles with this machine, do not adjust your tension!!! Before adjusting the tension, make sure that your bobbin is in correctly and that you are using the correct stabilizer for the job.Read more ›

I have had my machine for a couple of months now, and while I am not new to embroidery machines, this one is my third one, it is hands down my favorite. As many others have pointed out, it is very easy to use. It sews out nice and even though there is only a 4 inch hoop, you can combine various designs on the same article to give the look of a much bigger machine. For example, you can embroider the design and then below it a name, or a personalization. Or you can embroider several designs in a row. So aside from comfirming all the positive reviews, I have a bit of advice for people who are new to embroidery machines. First, learn to use your template. It will make your designs look so much better and will make it easy to line up or combine designs. Second, forget about the ibroidery site that Brother recommends in the instruction book. The designs are nice, but expensive, and you can find designs that are much nicer and a lot less expensive. I have no interest in these companies aside from being a satisfied customer. Three sites that I like are Embroidery Library (they have every kind of design you could imagine as well as frequent sales, I have never paid full price for a design there), Embroidery DK (a site where you pay $8 a month and can download all the designs she comes out with each month, as well as any designs you like from the archive, this site also has a lettering option for a few extra dollars a month, where all you have to do is type in the name, saying or monogram you want, and save it as a ready to use design right on your machine, the designs sew out great, and the lettering does too) last is another subscription site called Designs by Sick (also nice sets of designs, including lots of redwork designs and In The Hoop projects that are very cute).Read more ›
