  • way better than: Brother LX 3125 Sewing Machine
    Verified Purchase

    I was a little wary about purchasing this machine. There were no reviews on it, but I love Brother sewing machines. I purchased the Brother LX 3125 Sewing Machine (Refurbished) from Overstock about 2 years ago. It's an amazing lil guy but it's loud! NOW THIS MACHINE is QUIET! Smooth! Easy to work with, and a dream! I am going to purchase another one asap! This lil machine single handedly made sewing my first satin ball gown a dream: I was very worried at first that it wasn't do able with a brand new machine that I hadn't ever used before much less been used to. I ended up successfully sewing a zipper my first time out and had no issues. It's a great machine and is very intutitive. This machine also came with a great instruction manual that you can download from the Brother site: Overall I am very happy with this great lil sewing machine. It's small, lightweight and easy to transport with the Omni Trolley. I don't know what I would do without it! Favorite features: - LED light for sewing area - Easy stitch selection - Easy foot changing - User Guide/Manuals (quick reference guide is PERFECT for a first time sewer)

  • Great deal, great machine!
    Verified Purchase

    I am not a seamstress, but I would like to learn. I have crafty friends, and they've let me try their machines. I decided it's time to get my own, but didn't want to spend a lot or get a ton of "bells and whistles" I won't know how to use. This one was on sale (for $XX!! no tax no shipping) and I thought "can't go wrong with that!" It works as advertised...very simple set up, didn't even have to refer to the DVD, thanks to the prior practice on my friend's machine. Took it out of the box, threaded it up, wound a bobbin first try, and hemmed a couple things. I *would* say "worked seamlessly" but that's just bad form ;) I highly recommend this machine for beginning or intermediate sew-ers...does all I need and then some, it's light, easy to use, and came with extra bobbins, presser feet, needles....everything one needs to get started!

  • Easy and Intuitive!!
    Verified Purchase

    I have never sewn before and within 24 hrs of unpacking the machine I have fixed the hem on two different shirts, slimmed the sides of a sweater, narrowed the armholes of a wrap dress and slimmed the sides, and I have hemmed my first pair of pants! This machine has already paid for itself considering the cost of such alterations !! The instructional DVD is extremely helpful with staring you off, while the simplicity of the machine itself makes the sewing seem like common sense. Truly worth trying! Highly recommended.

    What a terrific, easy to use sewing machine! It is lightweight and relatively small. The directions are very easy to follow and the machine itself is incredibly easy to use. For basic work this is terrific.

    I bought this as a birthday gift for my 12 year old daughter and we love it. Easy set up, She has been sewing away since she got it.The bobbin set up surprised me, but it is so much easier to use. It is so much nicer than my old Brother machine, that I'll get for myself as well.

    Perfect sewing machine for simple DYI projects. Has a larger variety of stitch options compared to machines I previously owned---looking forward to experimenting with them. I like that it is light weight and portable.

  • FaNtAaTiC!!
    Verified Purchase

    I got the bug to sew after trying to decorate my house on a dime. I had not sewn in 20 years. After looking for used ones, pre-owned, new, I narrowed it down to Brother. I came to trusty Overstock and of course I found this machine at a wonderful price. It is so easy to use. I have sewn 2 sets of curtains, and attempted chair cushions(I opted to upholster, but my sample was a breeze). Not one problem! Sews perfectly. It easily marks how to thread the machine, I can't say enough good about it. It has handled the material I have used like a dream. I have not sewn anything to thick, but no problems with what I have sewn. It has gotten me so excited for my next project, and has made me feel confident to take on other DIY projects. Its also really light and easy to move from room to room. This machine is great for a beginner as they won't get frustrated with trying to work it, and its great for everyday home projects, I LOVE IT!!

    This is an excellent product, well worth the price! I sew thick terry cloth and heavy quilting fabric together. It's easy to sew with this machine. The price was great, too!

    I run a sewing club for middle school students ( 12-14 year olds) . I was looking for inexpensive, yet durable sewing machines for the students to use. These machines are great. They are easy to use and lightweight. The students made clothes, bags and quilts on these machines. I plan to purchase several more for next year.

    Verified Purchase

    i'm still not convinced that this is heavy duty. i haven't had too much use of it yet,but so far seems to be excellent for all basic household projects. clear, easy instructions,easy set up,easy to use.perfect for someone who has a few projects now and then or a beginner.maybe even alot of projects. i do have some "heavy duty" projects, i don't know if i'll be able to do them with this machine.i'm sure i can use it for lots and lots of "normal" projects. .

  • Perfect for Dad
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased the Brother sewing machine for my son who is now a single father of two active kids under the age of nine. After "playing" with the Brother LX2500 for a week, I was very impressed with the quality and versatility of the sewing machine. It was perfect for all the rips and adjustments my grandchildren needed to their clothing. My son is even thinking about making curtains for his bedroom! Although the sewing machine is refurbished, I didn't see any telltale signs (other than a sticker) that indicated the machine had been used. My 8-year old granddaughter even got some sewing lessons from grandma. Kudos to Brother and Overstock for a great (and useful) product.

  • Suits Our Purpose
    Verified Purchase

    I own a children's sewing school and purchased 7 of these machines. We were worried at first because there is no speed control, but have come to find this to be a non issue for our students. We needed a basic machine for basic projects and this machine has suited our purposes just fine. Our students are able to control/work the machine fine. The only problem we have encountered is what we thought were tension problems and after investigating further we found the problem to simply be the machine being threaded improperly, specifically the bobbin. Basic machine for basic purposes.

    Verified Purchase

    I bought this for our daughter who is moving into a new house. She wanted to make curtains and such for this new house...plus she also has a little girl that loves to wear dresses and so she wants to be able to also do this. We gave her this same brand of sewing machine when she was 20 years old and she loved it and was so happy to have another one as she had to sell everything when they moved.

  • Just what I was looking for.
    Verified Purchase

    When I first got this machine it had a small plastic part that was broke. I checked and found the piece and with a tiny drop of Super Glue and letting it dry it is as good as new. I have been having a ball learning how a sewing machine works. With my wife's help I have been learning things that I never knew before. We are both in our mid 80's so you can see it is nice to play around with but it does have a lot of small plastic parts so one needs to take care and not be to hard on it.. I would have given this five stars except for the small broken part.

  • Great Deal
    Verified Purchase

    Hard to beat the price on this little beauty! It is refurbished so I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it was a Brother and the price certainly fit in my budget so I gave it a try. I set it up to use for the first time yesterday and had no problems following the instructions to get it threaded and sewing. I made a skirt for my daughter and had no technical difficulties so far. The plastic case front piece that fits on in front on the bobbin has two small plastic pieces broken off, it stays in place without them just not quite as securly as intended. That is my only real disappointment. There are a number of plastic parts so I am not sure how the macheine will hold up long term, but again for the money it seems like a very good purchase.

    I purchased two for gifts and received positive feedback from both people. As I said, for the price - this was an absolute bargain.
