We ordered 7 of these machines for our school sewing class, and each machine is in use approximately 1-2 hours per week. Upon receipt, one of the machines would not work, and we received a replacement. We have now been using the machines for about 6 weeks, and have consistently had problems with the bobbin casing dislocating and causing the needle to jam or break. The sewing instructor, who has extensive sewing experience, used the word temperamental to describe them and said that they are a nightmare for the frustrated students attempting to learn to sew. They were reasonably priced, but I guess you get what you pay for.

I'm a novice sewist who only likes to do fast and easy (weekend) projects. So far, I've made a pair of sleep shorts with elastic; hemmed jeans; fitted baggy t-shirts; and essentially played around with the machine. My father also hemmed a bunch of draperies for my sister's condo and he seemed to like the machine quite a bit.

PROS
- good number of basic accessories, incl. zipper foot, narrow hem foot, blind hem foot, a few extra needles, one twin needle, three plastic bobbins, extra spool pin, plastic darning plate and screwdriver. Zig zag foot was already installed when I received the unit. All the feet are metal except for a clear plastic "button sewing foot."
- "free arm" feature is handy
- seems solid enough. I don't mind the plastic, keeps the price down and makes it easier to carry.
- also like that it doesn't need much space to store. I made a cover for it w/ approx. measurements 17"x13"x6" --can easily carry w/ one hand due to integrated handle.
- foot can be raised about 3/4"
- a coin instead of screw driver can be used to tighten needle holder. You could use your fingers, but the screw is small.
- handles denim relatively easily, even six layers at a folded hem. keep the back of the foot lifted with a piece of wadded cloth or tilt it carefully with your finger.
- robust feed dogs.

I replaced my Singer with this machine and I am more than happy with it. The Singer machine caused me problems from day one on. Contrary to the Singer the Brother machine is quiter, doesn't let the table vibrate and doesn't tangle up the stiches like my Singer does. I already made a couple of outfits for myself and it worked like a charm. I only can recommend this machine!!! I am having a ball with this little machine. And the price isn't to beat.

I wasn't sure what to expect from some of the reviewers comments and the price of this machine. I certainly didn't need a toner cartridge! I'm new to sewing and with the features that this machine has, I figured that it could do just about anything I could ever need it to do. My mother, an experienced sewer, was there for moral support for my first attempt. This machine was great! Easy to use, quiet, and worked very well with no issues what-so-ever. I can't help but think that unless the machine was truly defective, that the people having problems with it, either didn't read, or didn't understand, the instructions. As a matter of fact, I know that's true because some things people mentioned as problems, are covered in the manual. I let my mother try it and she even liked it better than her old Singer. She said that she was looking for an inexpensive machine because she didn't need a fancy one like this with all these options. When I told her the price, she couldn't believe that this nice machine was so inexpensive. So far, I've got no complaints.

This year, I'd enrolled in a home ec course for the second time in my life. The first time around hadn't been very fun--but then again, I had been 12 at the time. I had such a good time sewing and thought it was so useful that I decided to invest in a machine. I went to a store here, where the cheapest machine they had was $398. When I said I wanted to invest, I meant less than $100. So I went onto Amazon and looked it up and found this Brother machine, a name I recognized. It got here three days ago and I'm in love with it. I've already sewed a cover for it, and it really is a dream. Easy to thread, not too bulky, quiet... Everything I could ever ask for. I definitely recommend this machine.

All the features are wonderful, and I've made several p.j. sets for my grandsons, curtains, etc. during the past 2 months. The only thing that I'd prefer is a better guide plate or foot to insure the straightest seam possible. The machine has a "blind spot".

Otherwise, great basic machine. Quiet, lightweight, small. Great price.

I highly recommend it.

I am a beginner sewer and this machine is really easy to use. I have only used two stitches so far as that is all I have needed, but I just put what i need to be sewn into the front and it feeds through and voila it is sewn together. I had trouble with the needle unthreading at first, but realised that I needed about 3 inches loose thread each time to prevent this. I recommend this machine to anyone wanting an easy machine to use.
