Summary: This is a very good sewing machine. I use it to make quilts and it works very well for that. It has all the functions that indeed for the amount of sewing that I do. I got it at a great price.
Summary: For what it's worth, and what I paid for it, this machine works beautifully. It originally had some tension issues, but after a cleaning, rethreading, and needle change, it fixed it right up. I've already sewn several quilt tops with this machine in the short time I've had it!
Impressive machine for the price. I would not hesitate to recommend this.

Summary: i got this machine for my granddaughters for Christmas. They are 9 and 10 years old and I wanted something they could "grow into". I "played" with it a bit, as I will be the one teaching them, and I have to say this is a great machine. The drop in bobbin is so simple for anyone and the needle threader actually works!! Runs like a top and is easy to select the various stitches IF you read the manual. Quality of the stitches is great no matter what stitch you select.
Great sewing machine....great price....would highly recommend it!

Summary: Great sewing machine! Great price! Easy to use and so quiet. My old machine was giving me alot of problems and I decided it was time to find a new one. I read reviews on this model and they were all positive so I decided to give it a try. I liked it immediately. It's not heavy like my other machine and I'm very happy with my decision.
Summary: I love this machine! It was so easy to set up and use right from the beginning. My 40+ year old machine was very basic so I really enjoy the needle threader, drop-in bobin and free-arm style. I do a lot of mending so really enjoy this feature. In my initial practice, I got a thread jam so had to figure out how to take everything apart to get at it...how simple! So cleaning now will be a breeze! For the type of sewing I do, I feel this was a great buy!
Summary: I had some curtains to hem so I bought this machine and truly am enjoying using it. It has been a long time since I owned a machine since I am 67 yrs old. It is amazing how the machines have been improved. So easy to thread and the needle threader is great.
Summary: I Love this machine!!!! I am new to sewing and this machine is super easy to use and works great. My Mother-in-law has been sewing for many years, and she now wants to get the same machine because of it ease to use, and the amount of different stiches that can be done.
Summary: after getting another model of brother machines and finding it to malfunction I was afraid it was a Brother problem . But after getting a model upgrade and seeing how well it worked out of the box it was clear it was an isolated issue. This new machine works great.
