    Hello. I have just come across this amazing site! I am a musician but looking to build up a sewing business. I have a basic sewing machine I'm getting rid of and am in the process of researching all in one sewing /embroidery machines that have usb connection for importing more specific designs! I got soooo excited when I found the Brother SE400 only to be disappointed on reading it is only available in the US and not the UK.
    So now I'm looking at the Brother Innov-is 955 and the Singer Futura XL400. I'd be very grateful to hear anyone's experiences, good or bad, of these machines.
    Thank you!!!

    Welcome to the forum. I use Janomes and had a 9000 back in the day but found having the machines combined a pain now have the 500E for embroidery, normal sewing a TXL 407 for normal sewing. A gem gold for shows as portable. Embellisher for textile work and the 9900D overlocker.

    Do know you have to be careful with the Brother designs in particular the Disney ones as cannot be used to sell on. Any site selling Disney is also playing with fire. Not heard of the Singer one. One tip look at the size of the hoops first as resetting can be a nightmare.

    Maybe we should start a new topic for newbies?
    Cause, like, I've been looking through this forum for some time yet still I'd like to ask some questions about sewing machine types. I've found a few topics, but they're quite... dusty(

    I just wanted to say that this one was started in the wrong thread. Or is it OK to ask questions like this in "Introduce yourself to forum" section? I'm uncertain.

    It should really be in the correct thread but it can happen and be in the introduction thread if a newbie has not got to grips with the forum
