Rated 4 out of 5 by from Update/ upgrade Really enjoy using this machine. Still learning how to use it but so far it’s been great This replaces a Bernina embroidery machine and so far I’m happy with it it is a better machine than what I had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine This isn’t my second embroidery machine from Brother. Like it very much except that the machine does not embroider very close to the edge of the hoop, necessitating using the larger hoop more often than I would like. My other one embroidered a little closer. That said, it is very intuitive to use, and I have had many compliments on my final products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new machine - Brother Innov NQ1400E I love this machine. I am not using it for business. I just wanted to be able to personalize gifts that I make and this is perfect for that. Some day I may upgrade to the next best thing, but currently happy with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge step up from my SE400! I’ve been astounded by the performance of my new NQ1400E. This machine is so much faster, more powerful and produces much more professional-quality sew-outs than my SE 400 “training machine”. Finally, my digitized designs closely resemble what I see on my computer screen. I highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased This is a very nice machine. It’s very intuitive and easy to use. It also stitches well without error. My only issue is that the foot is too low. It often gets caught in jump stitches so you have to watch like a hawk. Many projects have been ruined because I turned my back for a second.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine The perfect intermediate embroidery machine I love it! Only thing I would change is to increase the stitches per minute from 850 to 1000

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good First Embroidery Machine!! I came across this machine by accident. I originally intended to purchase the Brother Simplicity sewing machine to replace the Elna 9000 that died on me. Someone had returned their NQ1400E to the sewing store I was at "because it was too hi-tech" for them. At that point, I was not sure I really wanted to spend big bucks on an embroidery machine and was "just looking" at the embroidery machines they had. Much to my surprise, the store owner offered the returned-&-just-serviced NQ1400E at a steal of a price and I took it home. I love using this machine and have made several projects that turned out beautifully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm glad I bought it I love how its easy to thread. My machine is NOT quiet at all. The rotate feature is weird too. I'm always using the mirror tool. It was so easy to figure out how to use. There's only two things I don't like, the noise and that it doesn't have disney.
