What type of sewing you did/do with this machine?
This is my first sewing machine, although my mom had a Pfaff when we were growing up, and I did tinker with with it. The Brother has been incredibly easy to learn and use. I doubt I could sew without the automatic needle threader. The drop in bobbin allows you to start sewing immediately without having to bring up the thread. And speaking of thread, threading this machine couldn't be any easier. I've made 6 pillows, covered 6 chairs, the sofa cushion, made an apron and two oven mitts, and now just completed two bathrobes. this in two months. Great machine for the price. I love it.
What is your satisfaction level with this machine?
5 star A+ Great machine for the money. It has been everything and more than I hoped for. The character stitches are a treat, and the number of stitches I haven't even begun to explore. It has plenty of power so I'm not shy of trying heavy materials to cover the rest of the couch. I started off practicing on indoor/outdoor fabric samples, which are very thick, and after all I've done, I've only broke one and bent one needle. Not bad!

- simple to learn and use
- fully computerized
- push button sewing if you wish
