Our Brother PE770 Review
For a home embroidery machine, the PE770 is exceptional in terms of features, durability and quality. With this model, the design options are virtually unlimited. And the backlit LCD display screen allows you to not only navigate the available designs, but edit them as well to perfect your creations before you even start embroidering.
Large Embroidery Area
Unlike other machines, the PE770 is designed strictly for embroidery, so it offers a generous 5” x 7” field to accommodate larger lettering and designs. The larger space also allows you to combine designs without having to frequently rehoop. Whether you’re doing monograms or a simple design, you’ll have plenty of space to get the job done.
Over 100 Designs and Multiple Lettering Fonts
The machine itself comes with 136 embroidery designs as well as six lettering fonts. You’ll find florals, scrollwork, quilt patterns, frame shapes, border styles and several quilt patterns. You aren’t limited to the included designs either. Personally, I believe there are more than enough designs included, but if you want more, you easily expand your collection.
The built-in memory and a USB port allow you to import new designs and expand your creativity. You also have the option of using the built in embroidery card slot to use designs from Brother Embroidery cards. These are available for purchase separately, and allow you to expand your design collection even further.
184 Sewing Stitches & 10 Buttonholes
In addition to the built in embroidery designs, this model also comes with 184 decorative sewing stitches, including: smocking, scallop, heirloom, shell tech and drawnwork. While I wouldn’t recommend this machine for regular sewing, the decorative stitches are excellent for enhancing your embroidery and quilting designs.
The PE770 also offers 10 professional, one-step buttonholes designed for your specific buttons.
In addition to choosing your design, the 1.4” x 2.7” LCD display also makes it easy to edit your design. The design editing features allow you to rotate, mirror, and preview your design. You also have the option of making the design smaller or larger, depending on your own personal preference.
Custom Stitches & Sideways Sewing
One unique feature that I haven’t seen on many other embroidery machines is the Brother My Custom Stitch option. This allows you to create your very own unique stitches, and save them to the machine’s built-in memory. If you’re a creative sewer, you’ll love this feature.
The sideways sewing feature also allows for cylindrical and appliqué sewing, so you can sew horizontally without having to rotate the fabric.
Easy Threading & Quick-Set Bobbin
When starting a new embroidery project, the last thing you want to do is fight with the machine just to get it properly threaded. This model offers an automatic needle threader and a simple threading system, so you can get your project started quickly.
