Reliable, smooth running machine
I have owned 3 Brother sewing machines and this is by far, the go to machine for dependability. I did return a refurbished model and purchased same model, but brand new. I have sewn many hours already with zero problems. The stitches are clean and I have had no problems with thread tension. There is a good variety of stitch selections, not to mention all the useful attachments included. For embroidery I do prefer my SE625, but for regular sewing it is the XR9550. I do wish it came with automatic thread cutter, I think all machines should. Even with that being said, this XR9550 is an excellent sewing machine for all levels of sewing.
I recommend the Brother XR9550PRW, Project Runway
I have had my Brother XR9550PRW for quite a while, and I like its variety of stitches and its dependability. It hasn't given me any trouble. Just clean it regularly according to the instructions in the owner's manual and oil it with a good sewing machine oil. Do NOT use 3M or something of that nature as it evaporates and can cause parts to grind against each other. Use sewing machine oil only. Having said that, this machine has a great many decorative stitches that can be used for all kinds of home decor projects, clothing projects, quilting, wall hangings, etc. The machine is lightweight, which has its pros and cons. If you are sewing something heavy, it tends to drag the machine around on a table. On the other hand, if you wanted to take a machine outside the home to a sewing class, this would be the one to take since it would be easy to carry. Pre-wound bobbins are easy to find for this machine. They come in packages of various colors that will match the most popular thread colors. That is a time saver if you have a lot of ongoing projects. The “down needle” feature is handy where the needle stops in the “down position. The extension table that comes with this machine is great for larger projects as it helps to disperse the weight of fabric across the table. I would recommend this machine. I think it is a great investment for the price.
Best features/Best price
I like everything about my new Brother sewing machine. It has an auto button hole maker, needle threader, adjustable pressure foot for thick fabrics, and more stitches that I will ever need. The manual is clear and easy to follow. The machine is easy to thread. Bobbins are easy to fill. You can remove the flat bed attachment for sewing cylindrical pieces, and there is a wide table attachment for quilting. I bought and eventually sold a very difficult to use Baby Lock from Gloria Horne Studio in Pittsburgh, PA. It cost over $700. This Brother sewing machine is easy to use and offers the same features as Baby Lock. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. The Brother XR9550PRW is an excellent machine.
