It seems that I never take my Brother CS 6000i sewing machine down. It's on the go almost daily. Love the extended table attachment, which very seldom comes off of the machine, even when not using the CS 6000i for quilting. Been using sewing machines for over 60 years and find this one very simple to operate. Started sewing as a teen in high school. Love the speed control feature too. Love the wavy # 22 stitch on it. Use it a lot for quilting potholders, coasters, mug rugs, placemats, microwave bowl pot holders, centerpieces, and both lap top and mini quilts. Also have used it for clothes for myself, doing alterations, making curtains, grocery/tote bags, quilt squares, and making doll clothes for the 18 inch dolls along with adult bibs for senior citizens. At my age, I need the needle threader too.
