There are a lot of great embroidery features and accessories that come standard on the Brother PE500.
Right from the outset you will be amazed that the product comes with seventy built-in stitch designs, one-hundred and twenty built-in frame designs and five built-in font styles. All of these are controlled and viewed via the back-lit LCD touch screen that’s built onto the front of the machine.
The spacious 4X4 inch embroidery area give you plenty of room to work on a variety of different sized projects and if you can’t find the exact stitch you want there’s a USB port on the side of the embroidery machine that connects right to your computer so you can download more stitches from ibroidery.com. (ibroidery is Brothers own site for downloadable embroidery designs).
For your additional convenience, there’s also a one touch automatic needle threader, a simple bobbin winding system that has the steps numbered right on the machine for as little confusion as possible, and a jam free, quick set, drop in bobbin system so you no longer have to fish for thread.

Customer feedback highlights that people who purchase the product love the Brother PE500 embroidery machine. They all rave about how easy it is to use, how quiet it is and would recommend it to friends, family and the beginner seamstress.

Other than a couple minor complaints this is a well loved machine that will get a lot of use from the crafty set as it can embroider just about anything.
Because it is made by Brother International Corporation, a company that’s been making sewing and embroidery machines for years, you know that when you buy from them, you’re getting a high quality machine that will last you for a very long time.
