Hey everyone!! I am new to embroidery and appliqué and just bought the Brother SE400.  I have done lots of sewing on it and LOVE it, and have monogrammed a couple items as well.  The problem I am having is that I use a mac computer, and I can't find a software program that works with mac.  I see so many cute appliqués and embroidery designs that I want and have even bought a few.  The part I am having trouble with is getting them to transfer from the computer to the machine with the USB cord.  I tried to use SewWhat Pro, but it says it only works with windows.  Can anyone walk me through it??  I really want to get some things made before the holidays get here!  Thanks so much!

as the previous person said, these things work on Windows. i actually have a mac computer, and installed Windows to it (because it was cheaper that way, my friend had an extra mac laptop laying around). there is no embroidery software that works on OSX that i've ever heard of, sorry. the emulator is a good way to go, if you're not willing or able to get a windows based machine just for the embroideries.

I just purchased a Brother PE770 and am using Embird 2003 through Parallels for Mac (www.parallels.com).   Its works well from my experience with Windows based programs, but I have only begun to tinker with Embird.  In looking for a program I have found something called "Macbroidery"(http://www.brother-usa.com/homesewing/embroiderysoftware/BESMonogramming/MacBroideryEmbroiderySoftware.aspx#.UKBUHXMl7IY), but I don't know much more about it.
