Features

  • This Brother model is an extremely versatile sewing machine and can be used for a number of different tasks. Whether you have a quilting project on the go or a simple sewing job, the accessories and 60 built-in stitches will allow you to do anything and everything. Furthermore, the additional accessories can be neatly stored away in a small compartment on the arm.
  • A LCD screen makes sewing easy as the settings can be changed within just a couple of seconds. Users can choose from a number of different stitches and stitch lengths.
  • This device can be controlled easily using either the foot control or via the stop/start button. Among the other options, you will also find speed controls so you can work at a pace that’s comfortable for you.
  • Setting and accessing your bobbin thread has never been easier thanks to a quick-set top drop-in bobbin; jam-resistant manufacturing will also prevent your sewing from being disrupted.
  • When it comes to machinery, many are often careful just in case something goes wrong but Brother are offering all customers a 25-year limited warranty as well as a bilingual manual. With these two in hand, all problems can be solved or fixed in a very short space of time. In addition to this, they even provide a free helpline just in case the manual doesn’t answer an important question.
  • This sewing machine comes with a number of different accessories including a cleaning brush, button fitting foot, bobbin, buttonhole foot, monogramming foot, overcasting foot, needle set, screwdriver, eyelet punch, and a seam ripper. With these and more, you will have everything you will ever want and need for professional-looking jobs on everything from simple sewing tasks to fully-fledged quilt-making projects.
  • Finally, users also benefit from a number of extras that aren’t completely necessary but will make all work easier, such as easy bobbin winding, automatic needle threader, a bright light which can be used when sewing darker fabrics, a large table, and easy threading.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • One of the biggest benefits of this machine is that it offers seven different buttonhole styles and each uses a one-step system. With this, even the toughest challenges will be made easy.
  • Furthermore, the wide table allows for huge materials to be worked on and makes quilts easier than ever before. This, coupled with the option to use 60 unique stitches, makes it one of the best available.

Cons:

  • Although there aren’t a lot of drawbacks to this particular sewing machine, the lack of automatic embroidery functions will deter some people. If this is an important feature for you, another option may be better. However, if you can forgo this, everything will be in place for a fantastic experience.
  • If we were to find another fault with this machine, it would probably have to be the fact that it’s plastic. Although this makes it lightweight and easier to move than other machines, it tends to shake when working on slightly heavier fabrics which can cause imprecision. However, this can be countered if you place it on a sturdy table.

FAQs

Q: Will it sew leather?

A: This machine is extremely tough and will sew leather as long as you have the right settings applied. With leather being a thick fabric, you can get an idea of how strong it is; you will be able to sew multiple layers and thick materials.


Q: Is it suitable for a beginner?

A: With all the gadgets and extras that are available with this machine, you could be excused for thinking it is only for professionals but this isn’t the case. Many users who didn’t even know how to thread a machine before have found this Brother model to be a perfect starting point. With tutorial videos available online and an easy to use machine, you will very quickly pick up the basics before testing yourself on the more intimidating techniques.


Q: How much does the machine weigh?

A: In total, this sewing machine weighs around 17 pounds which isn’t too bad when compared to others and this is partly down to the plastic used.
