Few things you need to pay attention to

Broken needle problem

There is no denying that Brother SE1900 is a perfect combo machine, but we cannot ignore the drawbacks it has. The first disadvantage of it I want to talk about is its broken needle problem. Most of the time, it works well. However, when you’re embroidering quickly, the needle is easy to be broken. So this machine requires you have high stability so that you can reduce the chance of broken needles.


Because SE1900 has many different functions, its operation is a bit more complicated than a conventional embroidery machine. Even the veteran who used the embroidery machine for many years will ignore some of its functions when he first touched the device. However, when you are familiar with the operation of this machine, everything will become pure.


Another problem is SE1900’s price. As a machine with such rich features, the cost of it will not be cheap. Compared to regular embroidery machines, the price of it is a little high. So Brother SE1900 is suitable for people who have enough budget. For the people without enough money, you can begin with a basic embroidery machine, then upgrade a more advanced embroidery machine, like SE1900.
