  • Great machine for ANYONE

    This machine is excellent. It's helpful to have a case that fits everything exactly as well. The case is high quality but doesn't come with instructions on how to put it together. After about 15 minutes of looking at all the pieces, you just line up the hooks and the loops on the velcro and it makes sense. It took about 30-45 minutes from learning how to put it together to finishing it. A bit much but it's a one time thing and the machine and extra parts have individual compartments and it's very sturdy and looks nice. As for the machine, it's the best sewing machine I've ever used. It is very user-friendly (I taught my friends' 8 year old daughter how to sew on it). It has three speeds on the machine so you don't have to vary your foot pedal pressing so much. The embroidery attachment is easy to put on and the embroidery foot is easy to attach once you've studied it a little bit. The machine comes with it's own scissors and screwdriver, in addition to many other "feet" and parts. It also comes with white bobbin thread. You never have to manually turn the crack on the side to move the needle up and down, there's a button for that. There's also an option to stop sewing and leave the needle down into the fabric (for quilting and turning corners without your stitches messing up) and an option to end with it up. There are sooo many extras and options! Not sure if they are all listed anywhere but a few are: automatic needle threader, push button thread cutter, drop in bobbin (which is unbelievable!), about 40 specialty stitches, about 30 embroidery patterns that come with the machine (like a crown, a few different flowers and scrolls, a little santa, turkey, 4 leaf clover, beautiful - feminine - monogram letters), 5 basic fonts in small, medium, and large, several button hole choices, blade on the side to cut your long thread without keeping track of your scissors, white machine cover to keep dust off when it's left out....and a lot more. The fonts are nice and about 3 or 4 letters will fit the embroidery hoop that it comes with (size medium) set at size large, longer names will have to be set at medium (which is about as big as 30pt font). The machine tells you what won't fit, it beeps and a message appears on screen. If you buy a larger hoop you could fit more letters at one time. I would recommend this machine to anyone, and my friend has already bought one for herself! The best thing to do is take the time and, with a scrap piece of fabric, go through the instruction manual in order in one sitting (about an hour and a half) and learn the machine before you go off on your own. :) Enjoy sewing!

  • Wonderful machine!
    Verified Purchase

    I have been very pleased with this sewing and embroidery machine. It arrived sooner than I expected, and I have had so much fun with it ever since! The instructions are written very clearly - I had been using a vintage sewing machine that was passed down from me from my grandmother. No bells or whistles, straight stitch only. This machine does SO much more, and if you take the time to read through the very well-written instructions, you are moving right along in no time at all! Overcasting is so easy (I didn't even know what that was when the unit arrived), sewing on elastic, etc. The embroidery unit works just as promised, although it did take some time to learn that, even with a larger hoop, the largest area it can embroider at one time is 4x4. If you want to do a larger design, then you need to purchase additional software that will break down your pattern into 4x4 areas (and this is where the larger hoop comes in handy - you wouldn't have to reposition the material). I have been pleased with the variety of stitches included, and the size of the unit has allowed me to complete a variety of projects, from baby blankets, to a twin comforter, to water-proof bibs. The unit handles a variety of fabrics of different weights and thicknesses with ease. To see examples, please check out my etsy store, ChristinesBaby. I am happy that I purchased the unit with the travel bag - I don't have space in my home to leave the machine set up all the time, and the bag is large enough to fit all of the components that came with the unit, with additional room to spare for fabric, etc. I would definitely recommend this unit for the beginning to mid-level sewer. Since I don't consider myself "advanced", I wouldn't know if to recommend it to an advance sewer or not!

    I had been using a top of the line machine (another brand) that finally bit the dust on me after 19 years. I was very hesitant to change as I was very happy with my old machine and very brand loyal. It took me weeks to decide what I wanted to do as I compared machines (other brand vs. Brother) I use my machine mainly for garment construction but that is because my old machine did not do embroidery, only decorative stitches. I wanted to explore beyond that now since technology had really progressed. I finally, decided on this machine because of reviews, research and price. Even though it did not have a large embroidery field, I thought this was a good place to start and it also had the features I was looking for for straight sewing. I just could not justify the price of the other one and thought what the heck, if I don't like it, I'll get by and just trade up in a year or so. WELL, this machine is amazing!!! I was sewing 20 min. after unpacking the box! Plugged it in and turned it on and never adjusted a single thing. I put a piece of scrap in it and just wanted to check out standard and decorative stitches. It has nice stitches and it just "feels" good operating it. Next, I wanted to see how the embroidery feature worked about an hour after unpacking the box. First project looked professional and SO easy to use. ANYONE can do this...just don't be intimidated by it. Follow the instructions on the screen and do what it tells you to do. If you have never emboidered before you need to invest in good embroidery thread. It's different and makes your designs look professional. It's that way with ANY embroidery machine. SO, if you don't want to do that, you may encounter thread breakage or may not be happy with the appearance of your project. I have yet to try to download designs but that's on my priority list in the next couple of days. I am having too much fun right now with what comes already loaded in the machine and since I'm new to embroidery, I thought that was a good idea just to feel my way around. I could not be happier with my decision and this purchase! You could not move me off of this machine right now and I really wondered why I had not traded a LONG time ago.

    I did tons of research on this machine before buying. I wanted a new sewing machine where I could play around with embroidery designs for fun. This machine turned out to have so many sewing extras that more expensive machines have, but at a great price. The designs sew beautifully, plus Brother has new free designs each month on their website to download. This machine will not sew very large designs like very expensive newer machines can, but you can group designs together by moving the fabric in the hoop frame and create larger designs that way. I also bought a larger hoop from Brother that fits this machine for that purpose. It comes with a beautiful travel case and everything you need to start off. I use it now for regular sewing and mending also, despite having two other sewing machines already. I really love it.

    This sewing machine has met and exceeded my expectations. I am very satisfied with this machine. It can sew anything I needed sewing plus it can do embroidery. I can use the built in embroidery designs or I can import designs from my computer. This machine is very easy to use and small enough to take it from one place to another. The rolling tote comes in handy too. I am very pleased with the purchase

    I know next to nothing about sewing but have decided to start and learn to quilt. My experienced friend showed me how to start a bobbin, and thread the needle. She did nothing but ooh and ahh the entire time! It has so many easy features she has decided to ditch her old machine and get this new one! I was able to easily figure out the different thread patterns and buttons. The touch screen was very easy and I cannot wait to get started on my new projects.

  • Love this Machine!!

    This machine has so many prestored choices and does so much. Also the best is being able to plug anything into the usb port on the machine to sew/stitch any embroidery design from web or wherever you get your embroidery pic to use...

  • Sewing and Embroidery made easy

    I've never owned a sewing / embroidery machine. I read the book before I started and I love it. I;ve used it both for sewing and embroidery and will not go back to my old sewing machine. I enjoy the option of sewing without using the foot control. It is a wonderful machine and I will be teaching my granddaughter how to sew on it.

    I have only had one Disastrous experience with a sewing machine, it involved me sewing through my finger in middle school. My husband bought this for me as an early christmas present, and i was afraid of it. But i was so wrong. All you really have to do is take it out of the box, and its ready to go. I watched a video (that came with it) and threaded a bobb need to do!in,and the machine, in 5 mins. Thats all you need to do! i was sewing an old t-shirt within 10 mins of taking it out of the box! This Machine is so wonderful! I love it!!

    This machine was great and easy to use. I bought it for embroidery and was not disappointed. The case however was "used" as it was sent in an unsealed bag with a heavy tobacco smell that I cannot get out! I have tried many measured to remove odor and it keeps coming back. The machine and function is great!! The price was also good but if case can't be used, would have considered another site.

  • Great machine for the money!

    Just got this machine 2 weeks ago and have been using it almost every day. I have never had a sewing machine that did more than sew so am really enjoying the embroidery features. Have already downloaded new designs and am enjoying using them. The CD instructions are great for learning how to use the machine and the instruction manual is also extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this machine to anyone wanting to start doing a littile more than traditional sewing as the price is good and it is easy to use!

    Love being able to sew and embroider! I have never embroidered on machine but after reading -and rereading - and rereading the instructions I did it! The price is great for what you can do with this machine. A local store had a used machine (different brand) selling for over $200 more than Overstock brother lb 6800. This is an economical way to try out embroidery and still have a sewing machine.

    Love this machine! I bought it to start embroidering and replace an aging sewing machine. It switches back and forth easily. The embroidery field is small, but it works great. Ultimately this led me to get a much larger embroidery machine and start my own business. It's a great introduction or good for small projects and the sewing machine has all of the bells and whistles and durability that have kept me using it for many years.

    These were purchased to go to a mission group in Belize. We were able to transport them easily. The ladies there love them for making their crafts to sell. It was easy for them to learn how to use the machine and the case was very nice for them to be able to store all the components together so they didn’t get lost.

    I love this swing machine. I purchased it a few years ago and it has stood the test of time. I have completed many quilts and totes with it and it is user friendly and very durable. I bought another one as a Christmas gift for my daughter. She loves hers, too.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Can you quilt with this machine?"

    • A:

      I'm not sure. This is a sewing machine and embroidery machine. If u sew then stop move your material then sew another spot then yes.. so it depends on what kind you do. My mom sewed her patches with this machine then hand stitched.

    • A:

      Yes you can. The feed dogs do drop. I had a darning/quilting foot from a previous Brother machine and it works great. The throat is not large and would be really tight maneuvering a large quilt.. I have done table runners, place mats, mug rugs and other small projects with no issues. It is a great machine and I love it.
