1.) Folks saying they can't get the feed dogs back up after putting them down. This is really confusing on Brothers! Your machine will arrive with the switch all the way to the right (feed dogs UP). Then you flip it to the left and you see the feed dogs visibly go down. Then, you try to flip it back to the right and the switch won't go all the way over. And to add insult to injury, you don't see the dogs come back up! It seems like a defect! Alas, it isn't. The switch will NEVER go back to flipping all the way to the right, BUT, as soon as you either start sewing or simply turn the handwheel, up will pop the feed dogs! They DO come back up, but that weird switch and the fact that they don't pop back up without advancing the handwheel or sewing is kind of misleading.
2.) How does the thread cutter work? It DOES leave about 2" of tails, but the nice part is that it pulls both threads to the BACK and cuts them both. You will still need to give them a little trim though.
3.) Needle threader doesn't work. Unless someone has a truly defective machine, it works perfectly when the needle is all the way in the UP position.
4.) Heavy duty sewing. The piercing power is pretty darned good considering this isn't sold as a heavy duty machine. It also feeds well with thick layers. Going over humps is difficult even for my Industrial Juki (DNU 1541), so this isn't a matter of power, just mechanics. Try a humper jumper if you do this regularly. It's not the machine. And finally- don't think you're going to sew through leather with a size 12 needle! Get the appropriate size and type of needle and thread, play around with the tension and presser foot pressure and you should be good to go!
5.) Knee lift. Anyone who has ever worked on an industrial machine will appreciate this. It really does make life easier! I piece lots of curves which requires me to stop and adjust the fabric pretty frequently. With the knee lift, I don't have to take either hand off the fabric which saves a lot of time and aggravation. Plus, this combined with the thread cutter makes it really easy to quickly sew a piece, cut, lift and toss it aside while you grab the next one or even just to go to another seam on the one you're working on. Big time saver if you spend any considerable amount of time at your machine.
6.) And on an related note- if you really want to take advantage of the overcasting stitches and don't want to invest in a serger, the $20 side cutter foot works PERFECTLY on this machine! I've used it on cotton sherpa (a soft, fleecy material), cotton/lycra jersey knit (stretchy!) and flannel and it worked like a dream. Very worth the $20 and the instructions included in this machine's manual will have you up and running in no time.
I think those were the main things I saw mentioned in the reviews. Great machine for a great price. Obviously, if you want fancy monogramming/embroidery, serging, super heavy duty sewing, etc., then you need to invest in the appropriate machines for those things! For what it promises and the price, this machine is awesome!
I purchased this machine for the knee lift option, but am pleasantly surprised at all the other great features.. I sew for a living, and have had many, many sewing machines, including quite a few brother project runway machines. I never really appreciated the brother machine until I bought a very expensive Bernina machine. I then realized that the Brother machines have many of the same features as the Berninas.. They aren't built as well, they don't have the metal parts Berninas do, but they also cost a fraction of the cost...The Brother may not last 20 years like a Bernina, but then again, when you pay a fraction of the cost, when it comes time to replace it, you'll probably be looking at a new Brother with some great new features!
My knee lift quit working on my Bernina, and I really depend on it for speed. I noticed quite a few reviewers stated they didn't get the knee lift on this machine and thought it was a waste of time.. Let me tell you, if you sew a lot like I do, the knee lift is the best feature of a sewing machine. Once you get used to using it, you will never want to be without it!
Our only local sewing machine shop went out of business last year so I have no where local to take it to be repaired.. The nearest dealer is a 3 hour trip with a $100 minimum to look at it, plus whatever it costs to fix it with parts, etc... If it has to stay more than a few hours, it would mean another 3 hour trip to pick it up..
I started looking for machines with knee lifts and found this one on Amazon.. After doing a lot of research on it, I decided it was worth purchasing this machine, as it could easily end up costing me this much to repair my Bernina..
I am really so surprised by this machine... Not only does the knee lift work great, but it has a thread cutter I've never had in a machine before.. It's awesome.. You just push the thread cutter button when you finish sewing a seam and it actually cuts the thread.. What a time saver..
The options are very easy to use. There are quite a few decorative stitches including lettering that actually work! The lettering on my Bernina has never worked correctly.
The needle threader is different than my other brother machines and it took me a bit to get used to it.. At first I thought it didn't work and I was very disappointed, but after getting out the directions and following them (lol), I figured out how to use it and it's now easy as can be..
It comes with a hard carry case, which is nice, but to be honest, I never use them, but if you like to cover your machine when not in use, it would be nice..
Probably the one thing I don't really like about it is where the spool of thread goes.. You lift the top of the machine to add the spool.. Once you thread the machine you close the top to sew, which is nice, except I don't use spools of thread, I use cones thread, so the top needs to stay in the open position. It's not a big deal, just kind of wish I could close it.
There are a lot more features than what I mentioned, but the bottom line is, this machine works great and offers a lot of features normally found in much more expensive machines... Right now I have four machines and I find that I am using this one about 80% of the time..
