Maybe. But most machines can only reduce designs 10 to 20%, and with that reduction there is no stitch-count change, so it makes the design denser than it would have been, which can cause thread breakage and a stiffer feel to the design. To reduce it in size AND stitch-count, you will need to use software. That usually works just fine. If you don't have the software to do this, then I would say, do a test stitchout reduced and see if that will look and feel okay to you.
