    4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with this so far.
    By Jennifer on April 18, 2020
    Update: 09/27/2022: I have found out about quilting. My obsession has gone further and I fear no one can stop me now. I feel secure knowing my Brother can take me through batting and fabric and bring me out on the other side victorious! Though I do wish for a quilting machine, I will continue using this one as it hasn’t let me down yet. The needles have remained strong, the bobbin is chugging along, and the machine itself…we’ll what can I say? It’s a workhorse. A few good praises and any project I throw at it will be completed without so much as a worry to cross my brain. Still highly recommended.

    Update: 02/01/2022: This machine is still going strong! During the first part of Covid I was using this to make masks for everyone including all the people I see at work (can be over 1,000 people in a week or more, about half of that bought masks). Now it’s being used to make memory bears for many of the same people, and maybe even more if I get the nerve to branch out. I have made bags, fixed zippers, attempted sewing projects I never thought I’d even want to try and not once have I felt like anything was going wrong, nothing has broken, and I will happily continue to use this until it does break and become unusable.

    Original comment:

    The last time I touched a sewing machine was in 1997. Home Ec class. We sewed pillows and “egg” babies. Since then I’ve done my sewing by hand. Thanks to the ‘rona, I made myself a mask and now have people asking me to make them some too. Enter another sewing machine in my life. I chose this one for two reasons:
    1. The price. There was some kind of promotion that was happening that included free shipping, so I only paid around $68 in total. I found this perfect in case I ended up with a dud; I wouldn’t be out much. And 2. It had a one week delivery time and I wouldn’t have to wait until the end of June to get it. My blood-blistered fingers celebrated when I pressed the order button.
    While waiting for my machine to arrive I eagerly researched the machine. For those who didn’t receive a DVD, there are versions of it on YouTube, although heads up, the voice of the lady narrator is annoying. Not to worry though, there are many other people who have this machine or a model really close to it that show in depth reviews from how to set it up, to how to use it. I also watched a few other videos that go in depth on general troubleshooting and what the different knobs on the top did, so I felt confident when my machine arrived and found the setup easy and quick.
    It is not hard to thread once you see what you’re doing (the video and instructional booklet make it a little confusing), and I haven’t had any issues with the bobbin, although threading it in the bottom part was confusing (again, the video and booklet make it slightly hard to see where the thread is supposed to go), but a bit of trial and error will make it clear. The top threading was simple to do and I love the automatic threader (yes, there are YouTube videos on how to do it and you’ll be surprised how stupidly simple it is).
    The foot pedal is a bit tricky to learn-probably harder the work than the machine, but once you get a feel for it, it works just fine. I can get mine to go slow and fast AND every speed in between, but I also sat there for a few hours with scrap fabric and practiced. All the stitches I’ve needed to use (mostly straight) have worked just fine - even the fancier ones that I played around with to see how they looked in practice, and I haven’t had any skipped stitches.
    In fact, any jam or nest that’s been made has been entirely from my mistakes (presser foot not down, fabric wasn’t in far enough for the feed dogs to grab, wasn’t watching to make sure I was holding onto the thread so it wouldn’t move). I also noticed that it also ‘jams’ on corners where the fabric is folded over many times for seams. In my masks, it’s about 12 layers which is slightly thick for this machine. I can sew through about 9 layers of 100% cotton just fine. With the corners, however, if I turn the handwheel to get it started then it works fine.
    The tensions is the only thing I haven’t touched or played with. I haven’t needed to, and don’t plan on changing it anytime soon. It’s not broken, nor causing issues, and I’m not that curious.
    All features seem to work as expected!
    The machine itself, though the outer casing is plastic, doesn’t feel cheap or fragile. There is a part that comes off and is said to be used as storage, but isn’t a complete piece: hole warning. What I did was keep the bag all the attachment stuff came in and use that inside the storage compartment and nothing falls out.

    The cons:
    It isn’t the quietist, although I think my Nana’s clunker was a lot louder.
    The LED light isn’t very bright. I mean, it helps, but only slightly. I ended up buying a cheap gooseneck lamp that I put behind the machine to help light my way.
    I haven’t had to contact customer service yet, so I cannot say if they’re helpful or not, but I have had a search around the Brother website and haven’t seen a place to order any back up pieces except for thread. Maybe it’s because I’m on mobile? I know some things are only specific to this machine, so I don’t know about that.
    The only feature on the machine I am a little unhappy with is the lever for the presser foot. It’s made of thick plastic and I can foretell it breaking with time and heavy use.

    Otherwise this machine has been amazing in the few days I’ve had it! Take those one and two star reviews lightly - I don’t doubt they have experienced those issues, but I also feel like most of them are user error. As a beginner sewer, this machine allows me to make products quickly and in better quality than hand sewing ever allowed me to do (and the people getting my stuff are a lot happier with the product, too). I’m looking forward to running this machine into the ground and getting an upgrade!

    I wondered if this machine would be enough for me, not that I had high demands but I loved my last machine and I wanted something reliable from day 1. I mend mostly so bluejeans are often a staple. I was concerned about seams and whether it would be the right machine. I am very happy. It's a relatively light machine and yet I can power over bluejean seams without causing issues. There isn't as much room as I'd like to allow thicker seams to pass but if they fit it sews fine even if I have to help it by turning the wheel a bit. It stitches smoothly although perhaps not evenly regardless of how tough the going is. I am very pleased as a lighter machine and I'd recommend it for any beginner or in my case, someone who used to sew and still wants a really reliable machine without paying for an expensive one.
    Photos show: pencil for width. Thicker seam was too thick. Bottom photo shows stitches over a seam... chugged a bit but smoothed out after.
