The Singer Futura XL-400 is another great beginner embroidery and sewing machine that compares nicely to the Brother SE600. Both have their pros and cons that are unique to themselves.
Built-In Stitches: While the Brother SE600 has 103 stitches, the Singer only has 30, including a 1-step buttonhole stitch
Pre-loaded Embroidery Designs: The Singer has quite a few more designs with 125 compared to Brother’s 80.
Built-In Fonts: The Brother includes 9 popular fonts for monogramming and the Singer only includes 5.
Included Hoops: The Brother only includes one hoop that is 4”x4”, which means the largest design can only be 4” around. The Singer, however, comes with two hoops, the largest being 260mm x 160mm, which is 10”x6”. This means the Singer can make a design almost double in size compared to the Brother. In addition, the Singer has a multi-hoop capability, which means designs can actually be as large as 18” x 11”.
Computerized LED Touch Screen: While the Brother comes with a computerized touch screen that allows individuals to edit directly from the machine, the Singer does not come with such a screen.
