Help!! Anyone have a Brother SE-270D embroidery unit?!
Help! I made a huge mistake. I knew nothing about sewing when I decided I wanted to learn how to sew and embroider things for my babies. I looked around on Craigslist trying to find a good deal. I found the Brother SE-270D. The girl only wanted $80 and it worked and looked like it was in good condition. When I asked her about the embroidery unit that attaches on the end, she said "oh, I lost mine, but you can buy a new one from Brother for like $20". WRONG!!! Brother doesn't sell that part to consumers, they directed me to a local dealer. The dealer said they would sell it to me, but since Brother doesn't "make" that model anymore, they can't just order a new part. So basically, someone would have to bring in the same machine to my same dealer that is completely broken, and the only good piece on it is the embroidery unit, then the dealer would sell it to me. So, does anyone out there have an embroidery unit for a SE-270D??
