Rated 5 out of 5 by MizMarsha Good Value
I purchased this machine recently as a replacement for an expensive Pfaff that I had sewn on for years. I was very happy with the purchase. This machine is a good value for the money. It sews well, much better than my Pfaff ever did as a matter of fact, Stitches are smooth and even. The only negative things I have to say at all are that the bobbin filling seems to be a little difficult to use. I have gotten better with using it over time Also the machine comes equipped with a needle threader that seems next to useless. Other than that the machine is great and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good basic machine.

This machine is terrific for the price. The quality of stitches, dependability, and ease of use rivals higher priced machines for me. I have been a professional seamstress for @ 40 years and have always used Viking's expensive machines. These have been great, yet I lost mine in a move last year and was unable to replace it due to cost. I decided to try a Brother machine because of their reputation for quality. Boy, have I been pleasantly surprised. This one has handled heavy duty coat zipper replacement, drapes, satin, quilts, and anything else I could throw at it with ease and reliability. Please read the manual several times because there are many different functions that add to the joy of it's use.
When you order this machine, I recommend that you order extra bobbins.
