Brother SE1800 Sewing & Embroidery Machine

If you are ready to upgrade to a machine that has both sewing and embroidery capabilities then this would be an excellent choice.

A little pricey at just under $1,200 but loaded with some of my favorite features.

I’ve owned the Babylock Allure (made by Brother) which is nearly identical. My machine was extremely reliable and easy for a first-time machine embroider to understand. It sews and embroiders extremely well.

While the price might be a little prohibitive for most sewists, this is a good machine for someone looking to upgrade and begin machine embroidery.

My Overall Impression

On a personal note, I’ve owned the Babylock Allure (made by Brother) which is nearly identical. My machine was extremely reliable and easy for a first-time machine embroider to understand. It sews and embroiders extremely well.

While the price might be a little prohibitive for most sewists, this is a good machine for someone looking to upgrade and begin machine embroidery.
