AllBrands is a Brother Authorized Dealer and ASC Authorized Service Center for any repairs including warranty parts, electrical and labor. We give unlimited technical support by email, fax and phone. We service machines in our stores and/or refer to your nearest ASC Brother Authorized Factory Service and Warranty Centers nationwide. Mass merchants do not have tech service or repair departments for your equipment. They are unable to help you directly, only referring any operational, mechanical or electronic questions back to the manufacturer instead of taking care of the problems themselves. Manufacturers and customers should expect that any problems you have will be taken care of by the dealer or merchant who sold you the equipment, not by just referring your questions back to the manufacturer.

Treat the Designer in you to a range of professional features in the CE-5500PRW, a Project Runway Limited Edition computerized sewing machine with 50 built-in stitches, 87 stitch functions and 5 sizes of auto-size buttonholes.
