    Do standard low shank feet fit this machine? I’d liike to buy a walking foot and a bias tape binding foot for my SE-400.

    Hello Kamala,

    You have been a tremendous help as I’ve gotten used to my se400. Thank you.

    I purchased my machine used off of Craigslist locally, and unfortunately, I did not get the normal pack of accessory feet that is supposed to come with it. I’ve been doing projects with some leftover feet that I had from an old Kenmore, but I’ve discovered that sometimes the feet aren’t quite right, and I’m afraid of damaging the machine. Is there a way to buy a packet of the feet that are supposed to come with the machine. I can’t seem to find all the accessory feet I need on the brother site.

    Thanks for any help and advice.

    David

    I was trying by 1st buttonholes today. The trial buttonhole and the 1st buttonhole on the coat went well, but then the machine would only sew a one straight line and just kept stitching in that spot. I took the buttonhole foot off and put the zigzag foot on the machine and that sewed correctly. So I put the buttonhole foot back on and it did the same stupidness. Any ideas what the problem is? Thanks.

    • Kamala says

      Hi Linda, Do you have a buttonhole stitch selected? Pulled down the buttonhole lever? Stitch width and length OK? Other than that, I don’t know. Something changed or is different. The question is what. If all else fails, turn the machine off. Clean out the race (page 152 in the manual), rethread everything and try again.

    Wow I am so glad I found your blog… I have the Brother SE 400 and it was supposed to come with a buttonhole presser foot… but it must not have because I cannot find one and I’m very careful when opening such things. The problem really is that I bought it a year ago from Amazon, brand new, but then got busy with 2 weddings in just over a year and never got to use it til just now. Obviously complaining to Amazon at this point is useless. I have searched and searched and cannot find the exact model number XC2691-023 and was wondering if the XC2691051 is interchangeable? Or if you know of one that is? Thank you so much!

    • Kamala says

      Hi Kelly, The buttonhole presser foot came with my machine. It doesn’t look like a presser foot to me exactly. It’s a big 4″ long white plastic thing. Maybe it’s in the accessories somewhere. I don’t know about other part numbers because I’ve never had to look for one. Does it say it’s compatible? I can’t even find it on Brother’s site. It’s just a plastic thing that could break. You could try contacting Brother Support. I can’t think of anything else.

    Hi Kamala
    My son just bought the SE400 for his new wife for Christmas. Does the machine have a quarter inch foot or a walking foot? She is a beginner quilter and will need these.
    I love your page. I just happened to find it and now I have bookmarked it.
    Thank You
    Debbie

    • Kamala says

      Hi Debbie,
      No, the quilting feet are optional. She will have to buy them separately. The included feet are buttonhole, overcasting, monogramming, zipper, zigzag, blind stitch, button fitting, and embroidery.
      I’m so glad you like the site. Please stop back and send your daughter-in-law. I’m planning to make some tutorial videos after the holidays when I have more time.
      Blessings,
      Kamala

        Hi, Kamala.
        Thanks for such an inspiring site! Love my SE400, too. I’m looking for the best walking foot and free motion foot for this machine. Are the SA188 and 187 the ones you would recommend? What about the SA132 quilting guide?

        • Kamala says

          Hi Wendy, You’re welcome. I glad you like the site. But I’m sorry I don’t know the answer because I’ve never done quilting. I know people do use the SE400 for quilting so perhaps someone else can tell you. Blessings, Kamala

  6. Carla P says

    Hi there!

    I was wondering if the feed dogs on the Brother SE400 drop down to allow for free motion quilting? Also, how wide is the throat plate? I love to quilt but this is the only detail holding me back from getting this machine. Thank you!!!

    • Kamala says

      Hi Carla,
      Yes, you lower the feed dogs using the drop feed lever for free-motion quilting. You will need the free-motion open toe quilting foot which isn’t included. I’m traveling in Italy right now and can’t measure the throat plate for you. I asked @BrotherSews but haven’t heard back yet. I’ll let you know when I do.
