    I bought this machine because I am a beginning quilter and ready to step up from my old basic machine. This was quite a step up for me! There are just enough bells and whistles to make me happy but not enough to overwhelm me. My favorite feature is the needle down feature. I love that I can stop the machine in the middle of a stitch and the needle remains in my work so that I can raise the presser foot and turn my work without getting off track. It is easy to use and very quiet. Quite a change from my old clacker!

    I was a bit skeptical about buying a this when I saw a few reviews that said it was loud, but it's far from that. It's super quiet and the fact that I don't have to use a foot pedal is super convenient. I would recommend this machine to beginners and anyone else who loves sewing.

    Love this Brother machine. Had one for 2 yrs until it dropped out of van and broke. It is an easy computerized sewing machine to learn and love the pedal free one/ off switch and the speed control. The machine shows an error code if you do something stupid,like leave the presser foot up, and make sa beep too. Highly recommend it.

    I consider myself a very experienced sewest, and teach sewing and textile arts. I have owned every brand of machine under the sun (well almost, Singer is out of the question unless it is my mom's 301!) and have paid A LOT more money on machines with all the bells and whistles-so I have paid 6 or 7 times more than I did for this refurbished machine! As an instructor, I get to help students master their machines, so I have seen them all. I have always been impressed by Brother machines. Due to economics, I have sold off my super high-end machines, and with experience, have found, for my needs, I only really need a heavy duty straight stitch, which I got (a Janome-all it does is straight stitches, sort of a home industrial), and a machine that offers a buttonhole, needle up/down (MANDATORY!), and some fancy fun stitches to play with. I did a bunch of research, and tried out a Janome Magnolia, but could not stand the poorly positioned buttons for reverse, etc.-their function buttons were at an angle, so you could not see the buttons while sewing. I returned it, and decided, what the heck, at $$$. with the same features but better than Magnolia, why not take a chance. I know, one thinks "refurbished-what, was it dropped from a high rise?" But I think most of the time, these "refurbished" models are those sent back due to operator error, not reading the manual, or just novice sewers starting up and not knowing certain tricks that make sewing trouble-free. Anyway, the machine got here in the stated time frame, wrapped up like it had never been out of box, and looks totally brand new. I have been sewing all kinds of fabrics on it and am very impressed! Of course, there is a change of needle for specific fabrics, but the feed dogs are great on it. Great screen size and back light. Tons of buttonhole options, decorative stitches, and an alphabet. TONS of information furnished too-if you are experiencing any trouble (which I have not been, only operator-error ones that can happen on ANY machine from any price range, or brand!) there is a very detailed manual that one can reference (and learn basic sewing with, it is very extensive), phone number pages and stickers galore to call their customer service, and a DVD to watch. If anything I would change on machine is more lighting, but I will just get an adjustable, high-powered sewing machine light one can mount on machine; I would offer a different place to mount second spool holder on, so when I wind a bobbin, I don't have to un-thread machine (could get a side winder for that, or wind bobbins on my Janome). But these are very, very minor wishes that can I can fix if I want (lighting, YES, bobbin winding, I don't really care that much). All in all, this is a great value for the money. Do NOT be afraid of "Refurbished". The discounted price is your gain!

  • Great machine

    I'm 70 years old, born and raised in Germany. My mother was a Master Tailor. I learned from her. I had a number of sewing machines in my time and I have to say, the XR 1355 is the best sewing machine money can buy, for it's price. It does every thing. It a great machine.

  • 25 Year Factory Warranty, NOT 20 - Factory Refurb
    Verified Purchase

    After trying desperately to get a copy of the warranty and clarification about it being a factor refurb prior to sale I took a chance and ordered this. It arrived and turns out to be a factory refurb with a 25-year (very) limited warranty. It's really just one year parts and labor - 25 years is for the non-mechanical frame. Still, despite the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act requiring that written warranties be inspectable by consumers prior to purchase, Overstock would not supply the written warranty and their information on the site is very confusing - saying there is a 20-year factory warranty. The 25 year warranty is available for review on the Brother web site. So, in the end, things turned out very well, and delivery was quick and the product is excellent for the price. Overstock needs to correct the information on their site regarding this product, at least, and perhaps for other Brother products where the warranty is 25 years, not the 20 that they state on the site. The product is 100% complete and works as advertised - many features for not very much money, and the refurb pricing is superb. Will it last long-term? Impossible to say at this point.

  • Excellent buy
    Verified Purchase

    I bought the sewing machine for my 9yr old daughter (and myself). We are sewing novices. It took a little time to follow the instructions for threading the bobbin and the top thread. But after we figured these out, choosing stitches, length, width, and tension was a breeze. The machine looked brand new! Well worth the price. Highly recommend the brand and style for beginners and for moms who always need to sew something around the house.

    I couldn't believe the steal I got on this. I got it at Christmas for less than $*** because I wanted to replace my sewing machine with one that had fonts included to monogram my grand daughter's clothing! Saved so much and Brother has NEVER let me down!

    "Does the machine have a "walking foot"?"

    • A:

      Hello mimi, we are still researching this and should have the answer shortly.

      Hello Mimi, thank you for shopping with us. You can purchase the walking foot from Brother. Have a great day.

    • A:

      Mimi, this machine does not have a walking foot. However, mine came with a quilting foot and the feed dogs can be lowered so you can use the machine that way if you wanted. The manual lists the walking foot as an "optional accessory" using part number SA140... Hope this helps. AA
