Help!! Anyone have a Brother SE-270D embroidery unit?!

CaitmonJune 27, 2013

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??

You might haunt ebay, see if there might be one at Etsy, check the Goodwill auction on line frequently, and put up a "wanted" on Craigslist. You are probably beating a dead horse, because it is al older machine. BUT, who knows, you might get lucky--I have seen other model units on all the above sites. In the meantime, you have a pretty good sewing machine for only $80,maybe you could resell as such and then put the money toward an embroidery machine. If it sounded too good to be true........
I'm sorry you didn't do some research prior to buying. Still, you never know!

I do!!!!
The cassette threading system broke and my tech will not fix it.
I was going to trash it but if someone can use it for parts we will figure out how.

I, too, wish to sell my SE270d embroidery arm module, I just recently bought the machine just for the sewing machine--because it is small and lightweight for travel. I have no interest in the embroidery part because I already have 2 larger machines. It is in pristine condition, and I know it was barely used before the owner went into assisted care. I have tested and embroidered 3 designs.I can provide pix, but actually the stitching is done by the machine--the arm only positions for the needle. Caitmon has probably already found an arm--but ''just in case".

Hi girls, I was remiss in not updating my info. The neighbor backed out of buying because of sudden dental bills. However, I have decided to sell the machine complete, and buy a small sewing machine. It would be a shame to disable an almost new embroidery machine, and ultimately end up with someone doing a search as you are doing now. So I will be listing the entire package for sale. Thank you for responding, and please accept my apology for getting your hopes up. Wishing you very good luck in your search.

Hello! I too am hoping any of you may be still trying to sell your SE-270D? I've also managed to lose the arm in my recent move. No way I can get it back now - grr!

I sold my complete machine back in late 2013. I neglected to "keep my eyes open" for an arm only, but I will do a search & post if I find one. It is a good little sewing machine, but not my preference for embroidery. However, I have not had any complaints from the buyer of mine, and many seem to like it. My main dislike is the threading system.

DO any of you still have an EMBROIDERY ARM?
I have lost mine and have tried to find for over 2 years. Actually need from 500D but have been told the 2 are interchangeable
Thanks Sandy
