The machine worked fine for 2 months and now I can't get it to sew right. I have tried adjusting the tension up and down and nothing works. I changed the thread and bobbin. I have taken the thread out and threaded the machine again and again and nothing works. I have been sewing for over 50 years but I am getting really frustrated with these machines. I purchased a new Singer Sewing machine and I had to return it after 2 months with the same problems. The features on this Brother machine were a selling point for me and like I said it worked fine and then I just can't get it to sew right.

I have used a sewing machine for 20+ years and had never used a serger. I bought this Singer ProFinish Serger based on the positive reviews online. It is just as easy to use as everyone had said! I had a little trouble with it when I took out the factory installed threads and put in my own colors. There was quiet a panic and some frustrations of wonky needle stitches. I rethreaded several times but couldn't solve the problem. No matter what tension setting I used, it was still loose. I knew I had it threaded correctly and began googling for a solution. I found one forum where a woman posted that she had taken a class for using her machine and the instructor had said to floss the threads into the tension wheels. Sure enough, this was my problem! I had not properly inserted/flossed the thread into the tension wheel. It is different from my sewing machine where you just run the thread through and it catches it. Now that I have this bit of information, I have serged several items and changed threads several times with ease. This is a great machine at a great price! I would recommend this serger to anyone looking to buy a quality machine without spending a ton of money.

I got this one for my 7 years old daughter, and needless to say she loves the Hello Kitty theme. The 3/4 size fits her well and even I feel pretty comfortable using it. In fact, it sews so much smoother than my Singer machine. This sewing machine has all the basic stitches and easy to use, and very portable. It is excellent for a beginner.

I'm extremely pleased with this machine! Ive always used a, Singer, which broke, so i decided to buy a, Brother, after hearing so many great things about the brand. It was definitely a good decision because it was like driving on gravel with the, Singer, compared to smooth sailing with my new Brother! I definitely don't regret converting! :) Great bang for your buck for sure! My only complaint is that although the shipping was fast, it came in the original box with no protection around it. That normally wouldn't be an issue for me except for the fact that I received my package damages with a hole the size of a golf ball on the side. Luckily it didn't affect the machine from what I'm aware of but I definitely feel that Overstock did a shotty job with their shipping and could use some improvements. I paid good money for the product and I believe that proper shipping conditions should be included within that cost if they're not charging for shipping. I would have gladly paid extra for shipping if I knew there was a risk of damaging it in the process.

I bought this Machine xr1355 for my wife as I had just purchased her an Embroidery Machine a few weeks earlier to use and she decided she wanted to make a quilt with the embroidery patterns she had. This machine was delivered and even though it says Factory Refurbished you would never know it. there is not a mark on it and it runs great. It is very easy to use and my wife was able to sew the quilt together in only two days using this machine and she had never sewn before with a machine. the automatic needle threading does take some time to master but once you do it is a lot easier than threading by hand.the machine shows you pictures of the stitch patterns and you enter the numbers on the digital screen and it tells you what presser foot( the machine comes with 8 quick change presser feet) to use for that stitch with a little letter above the stitch number on the screen. the machine can be adjusted so you can sew really slow until you feel comfortable with it and adjust the speed up as you feel more comfortable sewing. The wide table makes sewing larger items so much easier and it comes off if you do not need it or want it on very easily. you do not need to use the foot pedal but if you want to it connects with a simple plug into the back of the machine.I did a lot of research on machines before buying this one and I am glad I bought her this one it has been everything it promised to be and more. She loves all the stitch choices, First thing she did when we got it up an running was take a old piece of scrap cloth and tried all the stitch designs out, and was amazed at how easy it was and how nice they all came out. Between this machine and her Disney embroidery machine she is having a lot of fun making Blankets and quilts and shirts these two machine have opened her up to a fun new world that she is really enjoying.

I love this machine. I'm so glad I bought it . The price use great,it's a must have when sewing. I recommend it highly. I have a singer serger that's over 30 years old that still works, but this one is so much easier to thread.

I have been using the Singer 9600 for 2 weeks and am enjoying it very much. It seems to be a very good machine especially for the price. Runs quietly and sews with little effort. Quite enjoyable so far.

I would consider myself an intermediate level sewer. I studied tons of reviews before deciding on this sewing machine. I made the right choice! It is sturdy and smooth-running. Although I am still getting used to all the fancy features and attachments (I keep the manual by my side,) I haven't had any problems with sewing anything I have tried. This is a great sewing machine.

So far I've found the machine fine for what I needed it for (quilting}. Like the extended table. Machine is much lighter than expected compared to my old Singer. Love the computerized mechanism. Very easy to use.
