  • Brother Sewing Machine
    Verified Purchase

    This sewing machine is providing just what I need at my experience level. This is my first machine and I find it very easy to operate. Having completed my first dress, I am feeling very proud of myself. Even though this machine is refurbished, it looks brand new. It sews at a speed that I am comfortable with. I am very happy that I made the purchase.

  • Simple to use
    Verified Purchase

    The machine I received appeared practically brand new. It came with instruction manuals and all the parts indicated in the manual. It was easy to set up and use and I was quickly sewing. All the stitches worked well and I had no issues with the machine. I wasn't looking for a machine with tons of stitches, I just wanted a basic machine that would provide regular even stitches and get the job done. This machine does that as well as having a small number of built in stitches. The system was easy to understand and use. Threading was easy. Bobbin was easy. The machine is light weight, so it can be transported if needed. I don't expect this machine to be a high quality machine for professional sewing, because it isn't designed for that, but for light general sewing it works great and the price was quite reasonable.

  • Beautifully basic
    Verified Purchase

    Basic machine, excellent price, just what I needed. All I want are basic straight and zigzag stitches for repairs and shortening jeans. Accompanied by a nice easy to understand video. My only challenge was understanding tensioning for different thicknesses of material and here it is in a nutshell -- the bobbin doesn't adjust; the adjustment comes via the knob on LHS which you should keep at 4 for almost everything. If you have much thicker materials than normal, turn the numbers up. I had to go thru 3/4" of fabric on a horse leadline and I used a leather needle and set the tension at 8 which worked fine. But normal things that you might think are "heavy" like jeans pretty much just stay at 4. The trick is to get the appropriate needle for the type of fabric and change it periodically -- don't try to use it forever, the heads wear out.

  • Darling Machine for Child!
    Verified Purchase

    Attractive floral design appeals to my 9 yr old granddaughter. Lightweight and very simple for a child to use. Do not recommend for adult sewer as stitch length and width not adjustable like most machines............this feature makes it easy for child's first sewing machine.................just turn dial to desired stitch. Great price for refurbished........................looks & works like new

  • Verified Purchase

    My mother's sewing machine (as old as I was) was stolen, during a move, 25 years ago. Since then, I had flirted with the idea of buying one -- just for repairs to clothes and horse blankets -- but then would get caught up in the "what features do I need -- oooh embroidery! ack! a million dollars!" head conversation. So, when I saw this machine on sale on Black Friday, I decided what-the-heck and went for it. Since then, I have taken a quilting class and a sewing class. This machine has been able to handle everything in either class, except for sewing together a piece of non-roll elastic (it expended the whole bobbin on the underside). I've seen my classmates struggling to use fancier machines. The lack of stitch choices actually ends up being a good thing - I mean, I only ever use zigzag to finish edges, and a straight stitch to sew them together. I guess if I were going to do more quilting, a more decorative stitch might be nice. The little compartment comes off the front, so I can get a sleeve seam in there. The star I didn't give this great machine is for bobbin winding; but I understand that's an issue with pretty much any Brother. I also recommend taking sewing classes, if it's been as long since home economics in high school for you as it's been for me...

  • Awesome entry level machine
    Verified Purchase

    I would never have guessed this was a factory refurbished machine if it didn't say so on the box. The led light gives great coverage over the sewing area. Selecting a thread pattern is hassle free since there is no need to adjust width of any thread pattern, which can actually be a bad thing. However, seeing as this is a entry level machine using the preselected width, on the zigzag stich for example, is suffiecient enough. Threading the machine is a breeze since this machine has the automatic bottom bobbin threader. I find the foot pedal to be much more responsive to pressure than others, however the top speed is not that fast.

    While I have only had this for a few weeks, it runs very quietly and smoothly. I wanted a more lightweight machine with quality. So far this fits the bill! My first Brother Sewing machine. I have sewn for Well over 50 years. A lot of stitches behind me.

  • Good beginner machine
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered this machine for my granddaughter's 9th birthday based on reviews. The machine that arrived looked like new, but the needle bar would not engage. I believe the drive belt had come off, perhaps do to being dropped or bumped by UPS. I called Overstock, and a replacment arrive in 2 days. The machine worked fine, but was missing the accessories. I called Overstock customer care, and they immediately sent out the missing items. Though this was a bit of a hassle, Overstock's cusomer service was awesome. They kept me informed through emails to make sure I was satisfied. I will definitely continue to shop Overstock and will recommend them to others.

  • Broken sewing machine
    Verified Purchase

    This sewing machine was my 10 year daughters Santa gift. She took it out of the box in excitement and when we started to thread it, it was not working properly. Hopefully Santa will be able to exchange for a working machine. She was very understating and said, "elves make mistakes too". UPDATE-machine was replaced quickly, very good customer service.

    I love this sewing machine. The price was right too. Easy to thread, etc. It’s not a huge fan of jean material but other than that it’s a great little machine.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "does the front part come off so you can fit a shirt sleeve under the presser foot? Or is this just a compartment for tools and accessories there in the front? Thanks,"

    • A:

      Yes, the little compartment on the front does come off. I did remove it to hem some jeans. Keeping the accessories in a bag helps with this process so you don't have to deal with a lot of little items falling out as you put the compartment back.

    • A:

      Yes, definitely, and I've been using it on sleeves. I don't actually use the compartment for anything, though it comes with some items in a bag in it.

  • Q:

    "Can I use model work well for quilting"

    • A:

      That’s what I plan on doing with it. Although lite weight, with a freemotion foot, it should work just fine for quilting.

    "Is this machine capable of sewing thin leather? "

    • A:

      I'm not sure I have enough experience sewing with leather to answer your question. I would assume it's the same capability as your average machine, if that helps you make a decision.

    • A:

      yes it is great

    • A:

      I bought it to make upholstery slip covers for my RV couch dinette out of upholstery vinyl. It did great.
