    So, I have never used a sewing machine in my life, HOWEVER, my daughter has been trying to sew all sorts of things by hand. Since I have no idea how to teach her to sew, and classes aren't really available within a reasonable driving distance, I decided it was time for a machine for her 8th birthday. This machine is unbelievable! The manual makes everything seem so easy, from loading the bobbin, to changing out and using the various different feet. Our first project was a denim handbag, made from the bottom of a pair of old jeans. We even made the button hole for a cute little button to keep it closed! I can't seem to stop thinking about all of the possible projects that we are going to be undertaking during this hot summer break!

    I can't compare this to other machines, of course. But I can definitely say that if you're a newbie and looking for something high-quality but not difficult to handle, this is it.

    Prior to purchasing the CP-6500 I had never used a sewing machine and this was a great machine to learn on. The instruction manual is very clear and the machine itself is amazing with so many stocking options. The auto bobbin winder and feeder are great functions. If you are new to sewing and do not want to spend a lot of money on a machine that may be to complicated this is the machine to get plenty of bells and whistles but not overwhelming.

    I cannot believe how much I love this maching. I have been using the same Singer machine for over 40 years and finally decided on an upgrade. I read a lot of reviews on this machine and it sounded perfect for me. It is so easy to get started on and very quiet. The machine is very light weight also. I have not utilized many of the extra features as the type of sewing I am doing at this time is very basic. As soon as I have time, I plan to experiment with the various stitches and attachments. So far it has operated extremely well and I plan to pick up sewing as a hobby once more.

    I like this machine. It's easy to use and very fast. Unfortunately, like with all newer Brother machines, it just isn't made to last like the machines of yesteryear..I've had 2 other brother computerized machines and they usually work well for about a year, then the problems begin. After my 2nd went to poo, I purchased a Singer Heavy duty machine, which started having all kinds of problems within a few weeks. So I went back to Brother, but not totally satisfied.. Today's machines are built so cheaply, it's just unfortunate that a customer can't buy a certain brand knowing it will last for years.. Nothing lasts for years anymore... It's a sad situation!!

    I have a Brother machine from 1954 that is more dependable than these newer machines.. The problem with the older machines is that they don't do any fancy stitching and can't sew on many of todays fabrics, like knits. But the point is, they used to make Brother machines to last!! Modern sewing machines are not built to last. Sad but true.

    Having said that, though, if you're looking for a machine that does a lot and you don't intend to use it on a daily basis, then this kind of machine will work well for you. If you plan to use it daily for hours at a time, it probably won't last more than a couple of years before it starts having issues..

    I've realized a couple of things about these machines that really help keep it running good, which is why I'm updating my feedback.. They really need to be cleaned under the needle plate/bobbin cartridge a lot.. If you sew a lot, then you'll need to clean them probably once a week. The needle needs to be changed frequently.. I think this may be a today's needle situation.. They, too, are not built to last like the needles of yesteryear..

    I wanted to wait before posting this review. The CP6500 that I received was refurbished. I was apprehensive, but when I saw all the great reviews on this model, I knew I had to try it. This machine is amazing! Once you learn to thread it & the bobbin properly, it's a dream. I've made several dresses for me & my almost one year old daughter from it, along with some pants for my son. The stitches are beautiful, and the guide is your best friend! The accessories are great, too. I'm in love with the buttonhole stitching, as I've never had that. The needle threader is great if your threads aren't too thick. I've been sewing since I was 12, but there is always something new to learn, and I'm confident that beginners can work well with this machine because all the directions in the manual are very easy to understand. I feel that this machine is good for people who are experienced but looking for a good machine on a modest budget.

    The only thing that I don't like is that when the threads happen to get stuck, it makes a really loud noise, and it's somewhat startling. But, the manual tells you exactly how to correct the problem after reading the error code. Overall, I really recommend this machine.

    After reading all the reviews, I ordered this item to replace an old Brother machine I have had for years. For the first couple of months everything was great. Two weeks after the return window closed (of course) it started acting up. I cannot get the tension correct and have tried everything - cleaning, re threading, changing needles, making sure the needle size and fabric and thread should all work together. Also changing the tension control doesn't seem to change the stitches. I hate to pay $80 to have this machine looked at after less than 2 months!! Amazon said I could return for a partial refund but that amount would be determined after I return it. I'll try calling Brother and see if they can help. I feel like I've wasted my money. If I had to do it all over again I would spend a little extra money and buy from a sewing center! By the way - the bobbin case is made of plastic which surprised me.
