Advantages: Light, easy to use, good results, not too expensive
Disadvantages: Cover not included, doesnt come with walking foot
After my singer reached its demise a month ago I decided to look for a cheap alternative. My singer was computerised but I was going for value for money over features this time because I found that I never used half of the features available so it was a waste on me really!
I decided on this Brother sewing machine mainly due to its price of 180 euro in Hickeys. It was expensive enough to be of good quality and do what I wanted but not too many features or extra bits that I would never use anyway.
The machine is white in colour and there is a dial to change the various 23 different stiches to your needs. The feet are easy to attach and clip into place with ease. Included with this machine is a zig zag foot, buttonhole foot, zipper insertion foot, button sewing foot aswell as an all purpose foot. I was a bit disappointed that they didnt include a walking foot as I like to quilt so this was an added expense of 8 euro for me.
The manual is very well laid out and gives accurate descriptions to set up the machine and its easy to go through the steps of inserting the bobbin and working on your masterpiece!
Unlike my last Singer machine this did not come with a cover case but I got to make one myself to test the machine and I was happy with my own handmade cover. It is noisey but nothing worse than any other sewing machine I have experienced.
I am very pleased with this sewing machine and I find it great for simple sewing. As a beginner I have made quilts, bags and dolls for my daughter and this machine has never caused any problems throughout its use.
Summary: Happy with this sewing machine and great for beginners
