I purchased this machine to be used exclusively for free motion quilting. I did a lot of research, and yes, there were some really bad reviews, but way more good reviews. I've had really good luck with Brother machines, and this machine had more of the features I needed for the setup I was creating so I decided to go for it.

I'm pretty machine savvy and no, it did not work perfectly when I took it out of the box, it was doing a lot of looping on the underside. But once I adjusted the tension on the bobbin (which was WAY off), adjusted the presser foot pressure (the color guide adjustment window made it super easy) and the thread tension dial - and got all 3 in sync, which just took a little time and patience, the stitches were perfect! I then dropped the feed dogs, there's a dial that also makes this function super easy, readjusted my presser foot pressure using the color guide window, again super easy, and started practicing free motion quilting and the result is all I'd hoped for.

Two of the features I really like on this machine is the location of the bobbin casing, which is on the side of the machine vs the top or the front. The machine is facing me when I free motion quilt, so the bobbin casing is facing me which makes it really easy to change bobbins when I need to. Also, when you do the type of sewing I do on this machine, it must be oiled frequently. You do not have to take the machine apart to oil it, there are small oil "holes" on the machine where you put in drops of oil as needed. For someone who is used to taking a machine apart to oil it, this is a little bit of heaven!!

I was having a small issue with the automatic thread cutter.

Purchased this machine even after reading a few poor reviews and were they wrong!
This is a great machine for free motion quilting and piecing! I have had it for almost a month and it's getting used almost daily, no thread breakage, no needle breakage even at full speed. The only thing I wish it had was a bobbin out indicator. Totally satisfied with it.

I used to be a "singer machine" gal, mainly as that's what my grandma always used, and what I learned on. The last Singer I bought, I just did not have good luck with it...so, I researched, and bought the Brother CS6000i here on Amazon....it is a great little machine for the price...then as time went on, and I started getting into quilting more and more, I decided I needed a few more features, mainly auto thread cutter and knee-lifter...so, back to Amazon, and bought the Brother PC-420. It, too, is a great machine! I actually probably would have not bought another machine if it had a larger throat space and was a little more "industrial" as far as stitching faster, and machine heavier...plus my husband has made me a frame for machine quilting, and I felt I needed something more substantial. So, off I went to do more research! I found that the Brother PQ1500 has all the options of some of the other "quilting" machines, for a lot less money...it is essentially the same machine as the Babylock BLQP-Quilter's Choice Pro, as a matter of fact, they look the same, and some have said they are...and the Juki TL 98Q is also very similar. The Brother is just less expensive...and I already knew that Brother makes great quality machines! As I have said before, in the quilting world, there are some who think you have to have a Janome, Babylock, etc...again I say "hogwash"! As a matter of fact, my quilting teacher has had to rethink her stance, and seems to now believe that the Brother machines do great with quilting!! I must also say that while my PC-420 does a great job, my PQ1500 is much faster with the quilting, after all it is a straight stitch only machine, up t0 1500 stitches a minute, so it does what its supposed to do...Read more ›

I bought this machine used, but should have gone the extra $200 for the brand new. I am new to quilting, and started out machine quilting about 6 months ago. I got this machine about 3 weeks ago. It has been on my radar from the beginning as the most affordable and dependable choice with the largest harp (throat space).

Compared to my $99 Kenmore, which is still a great, cheap, and simple straight stitch and zig zag machine - this machine now makes that one look like a toy. This is industrial quality, straight stitch only, quiet machine.

Even though the machine was serviced before purchase, I expected tension issues - and at first, I did have them. Thread breaking. However, I have discovered a yahoo group for this machine, and also found what works for me, for this machine, for quilting. I use Isacord thread, but have also used Coats Machine Quilting cotton. A size 14 or 16 needle works best. I haven't tried the needles made especially for quilting but probably will eventually. Although I had tension issues with my Kenmore and learned by my mistake NOT to adjust the bobbin tension, I did find that adjusting the bobbin tension just a tiny touch back helped tremendously. So far, no more tension issues. However, each fabric, batting, and thread usually requires minor tweaks now.

What can I say> Needle down - Awesome!
