I put the Blank Card into the Embroidery Machine and it says the machine cannot use this card. See anwser below

When you install the PED Basic for the first time it defaults to the largest hoop in the software. In PED Basic it is 6X10 or 160X260. It does not matter what size the design is it sees it as 6X10. So be sure to go to the top left hand corner and select the 4X4 hoop and then save or resave your designs.

It was a delight to use your website and find exactly what I wanted. Besides the PED Basic I wanted, it came with lots of goodies and the price was less than what I expected. The checkout process was easy and the delivery of the product was fast....I mean really fast. I am a very satisfied customer.

Carol H, Wetumpka AL
From the website alone, I wasn't able to determine that the Brother PED Basic was the product I needed to be able to use my Brother PC-8500 embroidery function with my current desktop computer with Windows 10. I was about to select a different product, but I was still quite uncertain about it. That's why I called customer service and I'm so glad I did. Eugenie was EXTREMELY patient and helpful to me. She listened to what I wanted and directed me to consider the Brother PED Basic program. It was exactly what I needed. I was able to install it easily and write designs to the card. Thank you so much!

Evelyn I, Brookshire TX
Wish that I would've been able to realize that PE Basic was not exactly what it was advertised. I couldn't compare it to PE Lite and thought that Basic had replaced Lite and that since the new PE programs didn't need Lite to run that was why the PE Basic was replacing Lite. However, since my Lite had quit working, I ended up buying Basic with the wrong perception and it is nothing compared to Lite, so basically I need another program. Truthfully every other company also didn't give enough info about Basic and I like Allbrands so I purchased from Allbrands instead of anywhere else. So the product information every is also misleading. When I went to the actual store is where a Gwen explained the difference and the actual product that I should've bought. Lesson learned: sometimes it"s better to go to the store for product info and comparison.

Gwendolyn F, Chesterfield MI
Highly satisfied with product, price, packaging, speed of shipment. New item.

Sherrill B , Bath MI
Great service I will use your business again

Devora K, Phoenix AZ
Thanks for the great service. I have a very old (1998) Brother PC-8200, and with the PED-Basic card reader, I can now start to download embroidery designs. I haven't really done embroidery on the machine before this, just sewing.

Carol, NW Ohio
Great little item. I even installed it myself. Have not figured out what all it does yet, but will do that shortly. But I did get to my designs and it works. I am very happy with this box. New computer and old converter box would not work and my embroidery machine is about 17 yrs old, so this has worked out very well for me. AllBrands answered all my questions before I bought it, which helped so much.

Carol, Ohio
I received my PED Basic from AllBrands yesterday. It loaded like a charm and I am definitely not a computer guru. Took me awhile to load a design but I got it. Nifty little item and I appreciate everyone answering my questions about it. I am just very happy to be able to get to my designs once again. Thanks much.

Susan, New York

Just a big thank you for your ex service & fast shipment. Ordered Sunday night, took delivery at 2 P.M. today (Wednesday) Have always enjoyed doing business with you!

Susan, New York
I have purchased my little Brother embroidery machine and the PED Basic to go along with it. I have sent others to your web site and I know two of the gals have purchased sewing machines from you. I used to work for a Brother dealer so I know the quality of their products. I'm happy to find so many Brother sewing products available on your site and will be purchasing more in the future.

Susan, Arizona
whenever I shop at allbrands their shipment is fast and will continue to shop with then when a product is necessary.

Lydia, Australia
