The SQ9050 is not an embroidery machine. It sews embroidery stitches only it does not embroider designs. The ped basic is for use with an embroidery machine with the embroidery unit and for a model that does not have the download facililty like the 400 the LB6800 and so on. The more modern machine make the ped basic obsolete.

No. This software is used with most of the Brother Embroidery or Sewing and Embroidery machines. The SQ9000 and SQ9050 are sewing machines only, but do have one style of lettering font. They are not embroidery machines, although you could do free hand embroidery.

It will if you buy a rolled hem foot. I just bought this one. I haven't tried it yet, but it does fit on the machine and it's the foot that makes the rolled hem not necessarily the machine. Copy and paste this address:

It does, sort of. It's a bit tricky to use (for me, with my fumbly fingers) and I find it easier to just thread the needle. But it does come with a needle-threader.

Question

The start and stop arrow

Is this arrow supposed to be lit when the machine is switched on. Red when the foot is raised and green when the foot is lowered. My embroidery machine has this feature and this arrow button is always lit on my 9050 it is not.

Is the needle threader automatic?

answer 1
The needle threader is very simple. You thread the machine and bring your thread down to the needle. Next to the needle is a lever you push down on that has a hook to grab the thread. Hold the lever down with your left hand, thread in your right hand (keeping the thread under the hook), let go of the lever wth your left hand while holding the thread with your right and it will push the thread through the eye of the needle. First machine with a needle threader that I actually like. I have had other machines in the past with needle threaders that were complicated or didn't work very well at all.
