      As a novice seemstress, I really like this sewing machine. It is very light and can be moved around easily. Following the handbook that comes with it, you can do so much with it. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    • Very computer!!!!!
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      For the life of me I can't figure out how to use the automatic threading feature. I need to take it to one of your service centers. Otherwise, like anything else, it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks. It's a challenge.

    • So much for so little!
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      I've only had this machine for a short time, but so far have been pleased at how versatile it is and the quality of the stitches. It is extremely lightweight (especially compared to the 40-year-old all-metal New Home machine it replaced) so I was skeptical as to the quality, but it seems well-made and durable. It's also very quiet. I love having all of the stitch options at my finger tips, and anticipate turning out more professional-looking projects. The manual explains things in excruciating detail (which is great for beginners, but drove me a little crazy.) I have struggled for a long time threading machine needles, so I love the simple genius of the needle threader. I will reserve the fifth star until I've used it longer, but overall, I am pleased with my purchase and am enjoying my new machine.

    • Wonderful!
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      I have had this machine for almost 2 years now and it is terrific. In the past, I have used high-end Viking machines, yet I lost my last one in a move. Well, since they were out of my budget, I decided to try a Brother. Wow, was I surprised and delighted. This machine has handled tough heavy-duty zipper replacement in a man's hunting jacket, bridal satin, drapery fabric, denim, quilting cottons, and organza without a blink. Anything I could throw at it has been managed with ease. A couple of times the troubleshooting code showed itself, yet, each time it was for something I forgot to do. Also, when I began to hear a different noise when I stitched, it was always traceable to the bobbin thread not quite being in the tension completely. Re-threading worked every time, and the noise disappeared. I recommend reading the entire manual a couple of times so that all of it's features can be enjoyed. I am a professional seamstress and have worked with a LOT of machines. This Brother machine works as well as any of the others and I am delighted. It is even very reasonably priced! Thank you, Brother.

    • Best Purchase Ever
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      I recently purchased the "Project Runway™ Limited Edition Computerized Sewing Machine - Model # CS5055PRW" for my mother who has a special passion for sewing, stitching, embroidery, knitting, etc. Since my mother is highly experienced in using sewing machines, this was a wonderful surprise gift for here. After she went through the machine's user manual in detail, the machine was up and running in no time. After she stitched a few clothes for a toddler I asked for her opinion and this is what she had to say:- "Son, this is the best surprise gift I received. The machine is super easy to operate and work with. I'm so happy that you made the right choice in selection of the machine. Thank you my son". Those were the words from a satisfied and happy mother with her new gift. And I couldn’t have been happier to see the sparkle in her eyes and a happy & satisfied smile on my mothers face. This was my first BROTHER product purchase.

    • nice affordable machine
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • My First Machine
      Reviewed at http://www.brother-usa.com/

      I have been sewing for several years but have not had a machine of my own. For Christmas last year, I received this machine as a gift. I am so happy to have a machine of my own. For the most part, it is smooth running every time I turn on the machine. However, every once in a while it won't work properly. I turn off the machine and turn it back on, everything works perfectly again. This is the first computerized machine I have every used and am happy with it.

        The feed dogs drop down and so you can do the free-stitching. I think this is what you are asking about. I haven't done it yet, but it is an option.

    • Q:

      "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."

      • A:

        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.

      • A:

        I do not believe they are interchangeable. The Brother bobbins are TALLER than my Singer bobbins. So, I do not think you can switch them up. It is a pity, really. :)
