    Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 346reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by FABULOUS! (although the manual is lacking) I just purchased this last night to embroider some quilt squares. I read the manual and watched the DVD. Still yet, each time I tried to embroider the thread knotted up underneath the needle above the bobbin. It was so bad that I had to cut the fabric out - that is what fabric hadn't been ripped and shredded being caught up in the mess.I was packing it back up in the box frustrated today that I had spent the ENTIRE day wasting time, and fabric, trying to make this thing work when I noticed the slider on the lower back of the machine. It's the slider that raises and lowers the grips that move the fabric along while sewing. Low and behold, the grips were in the RAISED position. Thinking this was surely the problem, that the grips were snagging the thread and fabric as the hoop moved along, I decided to give it one more shot. Thank goodness I did. I pushed the slider to the lowered position and VIOLA!! Problem solved!! Now, anything I've tried to embroider - with or without using stablizer - had been perfection.I tried several different fabrics including cotton, denim, terry cloth, and a poly/cotton blend. They all came out perfectly. I also tried using cheap non-brand thread and then embroidery thread. Absolutely no difference whatsoever. What DOES matter is making sure those grips are lowered!! I went online and downloaded a few designs and was pleasantly surprised at how simple it was. I thought I had surely skipped a few steps or that they hadn't saved because it was that simple. They were all there and have worked wonderfully this evening.So, back to the quilting squares I went. It works so seemlessly (of course now that the grips were lowered - which, by the way, the manual said NOTHING about) that I have stepped away from it all evening while it's running. I turn it on, get it started, and walk away to work on other things around the house. When it beeps letting me know it's ready for a thread color change (which is remarkably simply) or that it's finished I change it out and keep going.Now that I figured out what was causing my thread and fabric to snag up and/or tear, I'm thrilled with this machine. This was my first attempt at embroidering and I'm so glad it is this easy. 12/15/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Amazing Performance! I have been the proud owner of this machine since 2008 and I am still loving it!!! It was amazing to me how many things this machine made so much EASIER to do, changing stitch sizes/frequency/styles is done with the touch of a button, the machine automatically threads itself, backstitches or cuts the thread with the touch of a button, TELLS YOU when the bobbin is running out of thread!!! This is the most reasonably priced sewing machine I found anywhere that had the computerized feature and could stitch letters/words. I am still happy with my purchase two years later! 08/24/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Starter!!! The world of embroidery is an expensive addiction! This is a great machine to get you started. I had it out of the box and going within one afternoon and by the weekend had made a dozen custom designed scarves. It accepts 2 types of files, PES & DST - which is fairly easy to find. The hard part is finding designs within the 4x4 hoop. I bought a 3 pack of all the hoops off eBay so I could go bigger, but the real gem was downloading Stitch Era which allows me to adjust the size AND type of files I get off the internet. Transferring from the computer to the machine is a breeze. It's not my mom's Janome but it's great for what I want to do - I HIGHLY recommend it :) 12/15/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by The Husband Being new to sewing machines, I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this for my wife. I learned a lot along the way and have used it as much as her. What we found was an incredibly easy to use machine that results in professional looking work. The embroidery aspect of the machine is simple to use and yields an excellent quality. Being able to connect via USB allows to download almost any design file out there. The limitations lie in the size of the designs that can be used. At most, the machine can handle 4" x 6.5" designs. This is big enough for 95% of the designs out there. The machine is easy to switch from embroidery to sewing, or from one foot to another. This is a great tool to work and learn with. Although we're novices, we've already produced great looking things. We haven't had the machine long enough to really attest to it's long term durability. However, it is well made and I know that this will be very durable. It's used heavily and I can tell how well this machine is made - definitely not a flimsy product. 10/28/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Machine!! I was looking to replace my old and tired Kenmore machine and saw this one online. I was a little skeptical about it at first...a sewing AND embroidery machine for the price of a good quality sewing machine alone? I thought it may be cheap or that the stitch quality wouldn't be good...but Brother DEFINITELY delivers on this one! While the body itself is plastic it doesn't feel cheap or flimsy at all. The stitch quality is outstanding especially considering the low price tag on this machine.I was intimidated when setting it up because of all the controls and touchscreen, but it was a breeze to get up and running. I think it took about 10 minutes to start my first stitches, which would have been less if I didn't read through the setup part of the manual first (which I highly recommend doing!). The manual is very easy to read and understand. I didn't find it lacking at all.Choosing a stitch is easy. The machine tells you what foot to use for each stitch so there is no confusion. Switching from sewing to embroidery is a cinch. Simply shut off the machine, change the presser foot, and attach the embroidery head which snaps easily into place. Importing embroidery images from the computer is literally drag-and-drop. No software required at all!I also purchased the sidecutter foot from Amazon (walmart didn't have it) for 30$ for this machine, which basically makes it a serger as well, less the multiple threads. I have found seams made with this foot to be extremely strong and durable.Overall, this is the best machine for the value that I have found to date. I absolutely LOVE it and I wouldn't trade it for any of the higher priced machines out there!!I've attached a couple pictures. Keep in mind my camera isn't the greatest. 02/17/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Awesome Machine 1st off I did a ton of research, and I just found that this machine was getting the best reviews of any out there. I had not used a sewing machine much but my daughter is having twins so I was willing to do my best to learn. The instructions in the box are not the best. I went to a local sewing store for advice on stablizer, thread, and needles. I also bought a bigger hoop, not that the maching will do bigger that 4X4 just because its easier to hoop and you don't have to rehoop to add a design to your project. Once I figured everything out I have been going non-stop ever since it was purchased. You can not beat this machine. I downloaded a free digitizing program off the internet (Stitch Era) bought the designs I wanted and went to town. My work looks as good as the professional Embroidery store. You have to do your home work to get the best results, buy good thread, stablizer and needles. This is the way to go, no dought!!!! Love my Brother!!!! 02/10/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great machine, great price I am a novice sewer and I had been using an old machine before upgrading to this. What a difference!! All of the sewing functions are easy... automatic threader, easy bobbin winding and placement, etc. On top of a great little sewing machine, you get an embroidery machine, too! The two towel photos I uploaded were created with designs included in the machine. I also purchased the accessory that allows you to download any .pes design onto your computer and then place it on a card that inserts into the machine. There are limitless possibilities and lots of free designs available online. I have had a few issues with embroidery jamming, but I've figured out that you really must use the correct type of needle, a new needle, and the correct stabilizer for every fabric. I highly recommend this machine for any beginner to advanced sewer, as well as beginner machine embrioderers. 07/28/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by From a new sewer, THIS IS AMAZING! I've had this for about a month. I am brand new to sewing, I did have some basic training in high school 12 years ago. This machine is sooooooooooo simple to get started with. I watched the instructional DVD first and an hour later I was in business. Before this machine I had bought a Singer Futura CE 200 and WOW I hated it! Bobbin kept popping out and I cried! I sold it and thought I would try again since this machine had great reviews and my experience has been night and day. LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I can already tell I am outgrowing the 4x4 hoop that comes with it for the embroidery. Transfering graphics from online to the machine is SIMPLE! You can find several free websites to get them. This is an awesome starter! 02/03/2011
