I am going to teach my 17 year old sister how to sew, so I like that it is great for beginners. It looks just as pictured and has everything I need. It comes with all the tools, the needles, and the footers. It was easy to setup and start sewing within 20 minutes of me opening the box. You have more than enough to choose from with the 25 stitches. I have not personally use them all but I like that most are great for any sewing project. I knew what I was doing but for those who don't it does come with instructions. The instructions touch base on everything from how to thread the bobbin, drop it in place, to picking the right stitch for the fabric you're working with. I would highly recommend this.
The Brother XL2600I comes in easy-to-open packaging that seriously takes 2 seconds to open. It came in perfect condition, unharmed and pristine. The best part about opening it? It took me less than a minute to get it working!!!! This machine is SO STRAIGHT-FORWARD AND SIMPLE TO USE. I am, by the way, a first-time sewer under the age of 15 and I only had to glance at their easy instruction guide before putting my machine into action.
I am so impressed by this machine, I am at a loss for words. The drop-in bobbin, needle-threader, thread cutter, and the rest of this machine's many, many features make sewing quick, convenient, simple, and fun, while remaining to provide lots of advanced (yet uncomplicated to use) functions and features for ALL TYPES of levels and abilities...
BEGINNERS WITH ZERO EXPERIENCE:
-extremely easy to learn on
-TONS of features that aren't overwhelming
-can be used without touching any of the features if necessary
-can be used without adjusting settings and dials all the time!
-sews steadily, quietly, and not intimidatingly
-can be used at whatever speed you feel comfortable at
-will meet your needs continuously as you gain experience
-simple directions written ON the machine
-easy to thread, easy to prepare, easy to wind bobbin
-very forgiving and durable machine that DOES NOT break every 10 minutes
-HIGH QUALITY unlike other "BEGINNER" machines (which are cheap and break a lot. NOT easy)
-No, you will not sew over your fingers! It's really hard to do that!!!
-great for ALL ages of beginners!!! (Children may need some guidance, as with ALL sewing machines)
TIP: This may seem a bit overwhelming at first. To tell you the truth, sewing in general can be. There can be a lot to think about, but just take it step by step. Watch some Youtube videos, ask some friends, OR go to your local craft store if you need a little help. Or, you can always ask questions here at Amazon.com. But don't worry, once you get the basics down, there is SO much to discover, and so much fun to be had. Plus, once you get going you will never stop. The more you play around with things, the more you will learn and the more you use the machine the easier everything will seem! Don't worry about doing things wrong. Machines may SEEM scary at first, but TRUST me; there's nothing you can do wrong. Just GO for it and HAVE FUN!!!!
-Simple functions, easy to use
-Lots to explore
-you will have so much fun playing around with settings, stitch patterns, stitch widths and lengths, and even different feet!
-you can make anything on this machine; from clothes to quilts to curtains to stuffed animals. Anything!!
INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED:
-although this machine is easy to use, it is not OVERLY simple for more advanced users
-provides all the necessary stitch patterns for more professional sewing projects
-can go fast, has some speed to it (if necessary)
The manual is good, but I found it helpful to go through and outline the parts in english with a colored pencil. (Half of it is in spanish, and there are a lot of some-what-unnecessary precautionary things, but it's still very easy to read.) I don't really have to use it often, because the machine is extremely straight-forward and easy to use, yet not overly simple for advanced sewers at the same time. I do really like the detailed pages that provide clear information on thread, stitch size and width, fabric, tension, needle, and foot combinations. For instance, if you were sewing stretchy fabric, you would look at the chart and it will tell you what tension, needle, stitch pattern, etc, you should use. Very convenient.
The ONE THING I found slightly confusing at first about this machine was that it seemed as though only half of the stitches were accessible. I then realized that in order to access the second half of the stitch patterns on the dial, (13-25 the little numbers on the inside of the dial), you simply have to turn the stitch length dial onto 'SS' (stretch stitch). Problem solved.
I had SO much fun playing around with all of the stitch patterns. There are 25 in all, and I think it's the perfect amount. It has all the stitches you will ever need, and there is something for anything you could possibly sew. There are simple stitches (like straight stitch, zig-zag, etc.), there are stitches for stretchy fabrics so the seams won't pop while being used, and lots of gorgeous decorative stitches that I found EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE FOR THE PRICE.
And speaking of the price, I am BLOWN AWAY at the quality of this machine for how much it costs! INCREDIBLE. To tell the truth, I was almost a bit concerned that the machine would be a bit on the cheap and beginner-ish side. I was worried that it would be a bit toy-ish or overly easy-to-use. NEVER WOULD I IMAGINE the OUTSTANDING QUALITY in this machine. I SERIOUSLY CANNOT TELL YOU ENOUGH how amazing this machine is. It's almost like they're giving it away for free. In fact, I know a lot of people who own machines that are extremely expensive and advanced, and this one beats them all by miles and miles. It's unbelievable to me. This is the best purchase a human being could possibly make.
I love my machine SO much. Whether this is your very first sewing machine and you have little to no experience, you are a sewing-mom who needs a speedy and durable machine, or a professional sewer who wants an extra machine around to put a specific foot on or to use as a portable machine (this one is very light and easily portable), or you are the average sewer looking for a new machine, the Brother XL2600I is perfect for EVERY NEED, EVERY LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE OR CAPABILITY, ANYTHING YOU COULD EVER DESIRE.
Thank you, Brother, I thank you millions.
After a few practice runs on some scrap fabric and making a quick beanie, I hammered out the quilt in a day.

The machine is really easy to use. I did have some issued with the top thread jamming in the bobbin area early on, but I think that was just user error as I haven't had any problems when making some wind/rain pants and down balaclavas.
Ten minutes out of the box, I was winding a bobbin. Twenty and I was doing some practice stitching. The needle-threader is amazing! I doubt that I'll ever use half the 25 stitches but it's great to know that I have them! Easist thing in the world to adjust the tension for the upper thread.
So far, I love it. And I'll try to stay on top of it so I can report on how it holds up.
Six months later: I'm just finishing up four elaborate Ottoman Ren-Faire costumes, complete with millinery and this machine has been SUCH a trooper! It managed to sew through layers of material and heavy upholstery bullion fringe and not break a needle. I made hats, turbans, used a bunch of the embroidering stitches---they were very pretty! Throughout all of it, the machine has been amazing. This is a great purchase!
