*Not a quilting machine* especially for beginners, But good sewing machine for beginnersThis is a really good beginner machine. I break everything and it has withstood being in my less than delicate hands for about two years (that may be a record for something with moving parts for me). Very straight-forward,easy to use,easy to understand. Really good if you want something cheap to learn and not cry when it finally goes kaput.**The only problem...... This machine is not compatible with any other feet (comes with zipper foot and button hole foot). Not even a universal walking foot, Which is what you would need if you wanted to make a quilt (especially for a beginner). If you wanted a foot that trims your edges while it sews,not compatible. If you wanted a foot that lined everything up for you (no pinning), Not compatible.
I bought 3 of these machines for 3 of my grown daughters for Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised when they were taken out of the boxes. These are VERY attractive machines and perfectly functional... the perfect "first" machine to learn on, as they have just the right basic functions... zig zag, blind hem stitch, built in buttonholer, easy to use reverse (better than my OWN more expensive machine), and a free arm! Attachments included, extra bobbins and a packet of 3 universal needles (machine has needle installed and is ready to go). Comes with a 25 year limited warranty on parts, too! For the price, I just can't praise this machine enough! What a terrific buy!
I am very pleased so far with this sewing machine. It is simple to use and works beautifully. I always had tension problems on my old sewing machine, but not on this one. Is also fairly lightweight. And comes with all the accessories.
Only reasons I didn't give 5 stars: the threading is a bit difficult because the thread take-up lever (where you need to fit the thread through a metal loop) is inside the machine and doesn't come out enough to get a clear shot at getting the tread through - takes some fiddling to get hold of the thread on the other side of the loop. Also the types of stitches are fairly limited.
But overall this is a very good basic sewing machine for a reasonable price!
We have become "winter visitors" and I found myself missing my sewing machine. I did an extensive search of local stores, as well as on line, looking for a machne that would do just the basics and not cost a fortune. I ended up at Overstock.com and ordered from them. This machine has all of the functions that I wanted and the blind hemmer as an added bonus. I am now a "happy camper" as I can sew when I want to as well as repair "this and that". This machine is light weight and easy to tote around. It fullfills my need to know that I can sew when I feel the need and I don't have to try to find someone who can loan me their machine. As luck would have it, my neighbor has the exact same machine and she redecorated their entire living area with it. She also is very happy with the product. The price is right and the shipping charges cannot be beaten. I would recomend this sewing machine to beginners or to someone who has the need to know that they have a machine with them as they travel.
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I'm no seamstress....I'm a fake seamstress that likes to pose like she knows what she's doing. This is my first actual full size sewing machine that I've owned. It's simple, and perfect for starting out. Not because it's lower quality, but because of the ease of use. The instructions are simple, and it can actually do a lot of things! I've read in consumer reports that Brother is a pretty reliable brand, and encourage the newbies to purchase this for their first sewing machine. It's a great price, and a great product! Thanks Overstock!
I ordered this machine for my mother who is 83 and she loves it! The machine is a perfect size for home sewing and taking to class or retreat. I tested it with some quilting and was happy with the results. The stitches are very consistent and easy to adjust. This would be a perfect machine for the beginner who is serious about sewing.
Horrible! Worked fine for 3 pants hemming and then stopped sewing in the middle of the fourth pair. Checked bobbin, threading, everything. Nothing will sew now.
It is grabage. Save your money for a better product!
Thank you for shopping with us judyru. The simple answer is yes but you may need a heavy duty needle and to change the pressure foot. The manual said if the fabric is more than 6mm or 15/64 of an inch thick is sewn or if the fabric is pushed with too much force the may bend or break. I hope this helps.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 18, 2013
