This machine is just what I was looking for: affordable, light weight and easy to use. I've been sewing on machines of one kind or another for over 45 years and the light weight ones always moved and vibrated all over the place. This one doesnt seem to do that. So nice to sew on. It's also very easy to thread. I ordered extra feet for it so I can try out free motion quilting, and will look forward to seeing how that goes. Eventually I'd like to move up to a more expensive model like Bernina with all the bells and whistles, but, for now, this one will do just fine. Great all around sewing machine. Quiet running as well.
It was delivered very quickly which is always fun, since I was really looking forward to it arriving, once I placed the order.

I love this machine. When UPS dropped off the box I wa worried that the machine might be dammaged as the outside box was badly damaged & the balloon pkging was not inflated !! However the SM box was in good shape & the styrofoam protection was in place & solid. I immediately took it out read instructions for threading top & bobbin; very easy and the machine Purrrsss..works like a dream (I was using my Singer 7422 which I have been using non stop - not as quiet and tension is always slipping.. I still love it but needed a 2nd machine.
Especially love the ease of use, built in heirloom stitches & quilting stitch capacity.
Great choice ! Highly recommend ! I am enjoying the purchase and have already finished 2 handbags with ease !

This machine is fantastic. Some of the things I like best about it are: Quiet, Light, Portable, Feeds easily, Smart design, Easy to learn how to use, Great stitch functions make embroidery easy, Easy to thread, Simple to wind bobbins... Okay, simply put, this thing does a great job and is super easy to use. If you're looking for a good sewing machine, I'd pick this even for a beginner. You get the best bang for your buck with this machine!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality. It far exceeded my expectations.
got 2 for my daughters' birthday this year. each had a machine but one has a daughter wanting to sew and hers was a good beginner machine. the other was a nightmare to use. i have sewn for years and have a high end embroidery machine. used one of these to sew a dress for d2's daughter. runs smooth. had a bit of issue winding bobbin but that was user error - follow diagram exactly! - when done properly they wind like a charm. also w thread catching on spool notch but they have a note in manual on overcoming that problem. the threader came off and with some effort put it back on and now it swings right into place and threads needle as it should. only real issue is that the needle position defaults to left when machine turned on rather than center. must remember to change every time. thread cutter is conveniently located. discovered if lift the presser foot lever you can put a very thick amount of material under foot.
lots of useful tricks usually limited to much pricier machines. very happy w purchase and should keep my girls sewing sans headaches for years.

I love this sewing machine. It sews very nicely. I have another fairly new sewing machine by another name brand company and it is very temperamental. I got tired of working with it so I ordered a Brother and I absolutely love it!
We paid significantly less for this machine than we could have paid at Walmart. It showed up to my door and I didn't have to lug it from a store. The daughter was thrilled to receive this as her main Christmas gift. Thanks Overstock for making us look like heros on Christmas.
My niece needed a sewing machine because she had used hers so much that it actually quit sewing and you know that the day of getting someone to fix something is over so after doing all of the research I bought this sewing machine. And boy was she glad. Then, her sister was so jelouse I had to buy her one. After we had a family get together, of quilting, I decided I MUST HAVE ONE TOO.SO I PLAN TO ORDER ME ONE ASAP.
BY the way, I have never sewn on anything but XXXXXXX, more than 50 years years and counting, but because the XXXXXXX have become so pricey, I bought this Brother, and now I will never buy another Singer. This machine is quite, sews beautifully, and has many metal parts. I can't understand why some of the makers use plastic parts in areas where there is so much wear and tear.
I am very pleased!
The manual is somewhat confusing. You really need to search for answers to your questions about technical questions. It is hard to find certain info like how to increase/decrease tension on the feeder foot. Overall, a very nice machine. But a video of the product would have been most helpful !
Hello markach, This sewing machine does not have the Built-in Sewing Lettering Fonts for monograming. Thank you for checking with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 27, 2013
Do Brother machines only use bobbins made specifically for them? I saw bobbins being sold that indicate that. I already have many bobbins, which I could use in either of my sewing machines. I prefer metal bobbins.nanavee on Nov 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
My experience with my brother is that if the machine comes with a plastic bobbin then use only plastic! The metal can cause sever damage to the bobbin casing. My owner's manual had a warning about using only plastic bobbins.sandy3chimom on Nov 16, 2013
Can you please tell me what the difference is between this machine and the CS-6000i machine? This machine has adjustable thread tension & the other has dial, what is the difference? Thanks.kathyminor1 on Sep 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us kathyminor1. They both have a dial at the top of the machine that adjusts tension and they have the same main functionalities The difference is that one is 50-stitch and the other 60-stitch.

This machine is strong enough to sew thicker fabrics, however you need to be sure that you are using a strong enough needle to pass through the fabrics with ease. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 28, 2012
