This is my first sewing machine. I wanted to be able to sew and embroider, this machine is so easy to use. Threading the machine is very easy and I love love the automatic needle threader. Putting in the bobbin was so easy and filling the bobbin spool was super easy as well. I'm having so much with all the embroidery designs and I love that I can download them from the computer right to the machine. It is a quiet machine and is so much fun. I would recommend this machine for a beginner because that's what I am. Never used a sewing/embroidery machine ever. Thanks Brother
Brother Makes a great machine. I was happy with the first machine and used it for years, so I purchased a new machine that to me is a number of machines in one, It will embroider, do quilting, do cross stitching, and then its a regular sewing machine. I has great extra features for ease of use-simple needle threader, auto bobbin winder, it also has a built-in thread breakage detector. It comes with a few text fonts, and embroidery images, built in. It is fair to say it is easy to use. Only thing that I would say that I couldn't find in the manual is don't think the size of the hoop is bigger then 4x4, it will not accept the image file transfer if it is, even if you measure the hoop like I did (5X7 hoop) It was made for you to address the placement of your 4x4 image.
I love my CS6000i. I love the needle down and up button. I don't have to use the hand wheel as often. The platform attachment worked great while sewing a long house dress. There are quite a few decorative stitches. It's hard to make up my mind. It is a smooth running noiseless running sewing machine. I cant believe the low price. I have nothing negative to say about this sewing machine.
I watched all the YouTube videos, read all the instructions, and have a sewing support group. It is not a bad machine. It is just not a great machine. And soemtimes, for a beginner, it is nice to have an easier machine that is less prone to breaking! Every songle time I use this, something happens and finally i gave up. I boight the best thread and the best needles and use the right tension dor my fabric with the right needle sizd and I still have issues. I just gave up. Many told me that it might be a machine error. I used other sewing machines at friends and did just fine. I wouldn't recommend this but I wouldn't not recommend it based on budget if that makes sense.
