I purchased this machine as an embroidery machine from someone who had made the purchase at the dealership as an embroidery machine. She did not buy the sewing feet and bed. How can I try to find the sewing feet and bed? I have loooked on Brother's website and this model is too old for them to sell parts. I have googled and can not seem to come up with a good answer. Thank you in advance for your help. Also, I am sorry if this is posted in the wrong category, but I wasn't sure which category to place this post.

I would try a good sewing store that sold Brother and see what they can do for you.. maybe you could get a good trade on the brother 4500d.. of course maybe those parts would work on the 4000d

I think that is my next step...checking with the dealer...but can't trade in just yet.

She might have brought it that way - because whomever sold it to her - may have not had the parts - because they took it in on a trade in - that happens - did you ask the dealer if he could get the parts or if he could find them for you from another dealer?

That is true....I haven't even thought of that scenario. I will begin looking at dealers. Thank you.

The feet are probably a standard size from Brother . The ones that came with my 4000 are the same as the ones that came with my 8500 and ULT (both deceased ) . The sewing bed may be harder to find . Strange they would sell that as an embroidery machine only .

I thought so as well...even more strange is I have the piece that attaches to make the sewing machine 'go'...but nothing else. I didn't think it was important at the time...had no interest in sewing. Then I kept meeting these cute ladies and they have made me interested. :)
