Love it love how it dose so many stitches. Sews nice. Love using my machine. Love that you can put a name on your clothes and a patten as well. It comes with a DVD on how to use it witch was great to sit down and watch it and go through is while watching it.

Purchased this machine at Spotlight thinking I was getting something decent. Sure the full price of $699 ($499 with club card) isn't a lot for a computerised machine BUT I expected something that would sew properly. I mean to say it has ALL the bells and whistles but doesn't perform to match. It misses stitches and loops on 1 side.I tried adjusting the top tension but it made little difference so took it back and complained to a sales woman and she went to work testing it.
She firstly blamed the cotton saying I need to use GUTERMANN then said I need to nurse it not rush it. Why then does it have 3 speeds one of which is fast? She was happy with the way she had it sewing so sent me on my way!
I purchased Gutermann cotton and tried that at home. Still missing stitches and looping!
It also has letters for monograming, I tried this and the stitching is so bad and SMALL it's not possible to distinguish what it's meant to be.
I will NEVER BUY ANOTHER MACHINE FROM SPOTLIGHT nor will I purchase BROTHER brand machines again!
I used to like sewing but this machine has changed that as the work it does is the worst I've ever seen in my 40+ years of sewing!
