  • Excerpt: I love my Brother XL-2230 Mechanical Sewing Machine! It is so easy to use, so lightweight to carry, user friendly. I enjoy using my Brother XL-2230 Mechanical Sewing Machine every opportunity that I have. I have restored my kids backpack zipper that became unsewed by itself?

  • Excerpt: I have used Brother sewing machines for twenty years and have always loved them, so when I decided to buy the Brother XL-2230 Mechanical Sewing Machine it was no surprise.  I find it trust worthy and very dependable no matter what I put it through.

Beware

  • Summary: Item received unusable, totally not as described not giving me a chance to even try it. I was hoping to be creative with all the features, but it was not to be. Item description was missleading or dishonest. What followed was plenty of frustration and lack of resolution thus far.

  • Excerpt: I got this sewing machine as a gift when I was starting out.  I didn't know much about sewing,except what I learned back in high school.  However, I need almost all of my pants hemmed, and have had to do many alterations since I had my baby.

  • Excerpt: I bought this sewing machine when I first got married because I wanted to be able to sew some simple things like new curtains, pillows and other easy "straight-line" projects as I call them. This sewing machine works perfect for that.

  • Summary: It's not the most powerful thing out there, you can't do a lot of sewing on very heavy fabrics or leather. You could make some light weight drapes but, upholstery fabric might be too much for this machine to handle. For the money it made a great gift for my daughter to sew on.

  • Summary: The Brother sewing machine was intimidating at first glance, but it all came back to me after I wound the bobbin. The manual and pictograms on the machine made things easy to use and understand. Operates very much like a Singer and has nice features for the price.

  • Summary: I purchased this item to sew a "kung-fu" carrying bag that can hold long 8-footer spear and staff while holding bunch of other stuff in it. Thick sewing did not cause it any problem as I sewed zipper through double-fold material, and sewed on haress which is also quite thick without any problems.
