The machine sews well on basic fabrics that are medium to light weight. It works well with a walking foot. The stitches are uniform and tight.
When using knit fabric especially with elastic that has to be encased I'm having trouble with loose tension. I had to out it all the way up on 7 to get tight stitches. When assembling garments it works fine but when topstitching I'm getting long areas of skipped stitches. I've read the book and changed needle sizes as it reccomended. This is key to using this machine. Each fabric requires a different type of needle. I find it works best with actual brother needles. For knits Brother brand 75/11 stretch needles work best. I think once I get the hang of changing needles for each project it will be better.
The feed dogs are adjustable for this machine. The stick constantly somi decided to just put them up and leave them there. If you change them the all the way down chances are you'll have problems getting them back up.
The light on this machine is sub standard. I'm not sure if it's LED or not but the light quality us terrible. I've put it by a window to help.
I'm a seasoned sewer. I've been sewing for 20+ years and overall I'm not impressed with the overall construction of this machine. It's cheap and plastic however once you get the needle formula down the stitches are strong and uniform. I've decided to use it as my back up and drag my old Necchi back out. If you need a truly heavy duty machine this one is not the machine for you. If you need a light machine for small lightweight projects then it's okay if you're experienced enough to be able to troubleshoot problem stitching so that you can switch around the needles. I'd definitely recommend a walking foot as it does not feed well for thicker or stretchy fabrics.
I appreciate that this machine has a rubber base to keep it from moving while I sew. I appreciate that none of the stitches skip and that it is easy to start sewing at the edge of the fabric without having to hold the threads in the back to keep the stitches from bunching. I like that the presser foot has an extra height adjustment to use on thick fabrics, something I will be needing when I make the lawn swing seats.
There a couple of things I miss from my old machine but will adjust to quickly. The "down needle" button for pivoting fabric. The longer cord on the pedal foot which I could drop behind my table top instead of draping forward across the table. The quieter running motor, so I can sew at night without waking my grandkids and their parents up. These are all minor issues though in exchange for a really good machine that I expect will be the last one I get.
All of the machine feet I have for my old Brother fit this machine as well, but the bobbins are a slightly different size and not interchangeable. It comes with four bobbins, and I had purchased more bobbins for my granddaughters' other machine that fit this machine just fine. AND it came with a Teflon foot which will come in handy on many of the fabrics I use for the doll clothes.
I am a very satisfied customer. Thank you Brother for continuing to make such great products.
Update...really pleased with what a great job it does sewing tapestry fabric and quilted fabrics. So far it is better than the Bernina sewing machine that I have for more than 30 years. Also like that the machine is lightweight enough that I can move it without straining my back.
