Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ponette Great machine, great price I am a novice sewer and I had been using an old machine before upgrading to this. What a difference!! All of the sewing functions are easy... automatic threader, easy bobbin winding and placement, etc. On top of a great little sewing machine, you get an embroidery machine, too! The two towel photos I uploaded were created with designs included in the machine. I also purchased the accessory that allows you to download any .pes design onto your computer and then place it on a card that inserts into the machine. There are limitless possibilities and lots of free designs available online. I have had a few issues with embroidery jamming, but I've figured out that you really must use the correct type of needle, a new needle, and the correct stabilizer for every fabric. I highly recommend this machine for any beginner to advanced sewer, as well as beginner machine embrioderers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Machine!! I was looking to replace my old and tired Kenmore machine and saw this one online. I was a little skeptical about it at first...a sewing AND embroidery machine for the price of a good quality sewing machine alone? I thought it may be cheap or that the stitch quality wouldn't be good...but Brother DEFINITELY delivers on this one! While the body itself is plastic it doesn't feel cheap or flimsy at all. The stitch quality is outstanding especially considering the low price tag on this machine.I was intimidated when setting it up because of all the controls and touchscreen, but it was a breeze to get up and running. I think it took about 10 minutes to start my first stitches, which would have been less if I didn't read through the setup part of the manual first (which I highly recommend doing!). The manual is very easy to read and understand. I didn't find it lacking at all.Choosing a stitch is easy. The machine tells you what foot to use for each stitch so there is no confusion. Switching from sewing to embroidery is a cinch. Simply shut off the machine, change the presser foot, and attach the embroidery head which snaps easily into place. Importing embroidery images from the computer is literally drag-and-drop. No software required at all!I also purchased the sidecutter foot from Amazon (walmart didn't have it) for 30$ for this machine, which basically makes it a serger as well, less the multiple threads. I have found seams made with this foot to be extremely strong and durable.Overall, this is the best machine for the value that I have found to date. I absolutely LOVE it and I wouldn't trade it for any of the higher priced machines out there!!I've attached a couple pictures. Keep in mind my camera isn't the greatest.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by maxandmeena LOVE IT! I was given this machine as a gift. I LOVE IT! It was very easy to set up the embroidery part of the machine. I already have a regular brother sewing machine so I have not tried to sewing functions on this machine but it looks identical to my other machine.The stitches come out very nicely and I have not had any problems with malfunctions.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ClaudiaSews Best little machine ever! As I am writing this, I am embroidering on this machine. It is so simple to use. Once again, Walmart listens to it's customers! This is a very affordable machine with great features.I have several machines (8) and a VERY EXPENSIVE embroidery machine but this is my favorite. I take it to embroidery club meetings since it is so light and since I am an older woman, I don't want to carry a heavy machine!I have recommended this to first time machine embroiderers as well as to the very experienced.
