Perfect for a beginner
I bought brother GS2700 few months back through online. It is in good working condition. I am not a beginner in sewing. I knew only basics of sewing before getting this. Now I developed my sewing skills very much using this. I could sew all types of fabrics in that till now. Really it worth.
Great for a beginner
I haven't used a sewing machine since high school home ec and did a huge amount of research before ultimately buying this machine (based largely on the positive reviews on this site and the fact that it was on sale at Myer for $189). The DVD is super useful - I just popped it in and it got me started. No jams or issues at all so far. Will update this review if I have any future issues. I'm so glad I chose this machine - love it.
Awesome it is..
It is a very good beginner- intermediate sewing machine. The one step button hole, auto-needle threader, top load bobbin all makes it so easy that, as Auzziepie mentioned I also graduate from a clueless beginner to intermediate seamstress. Have been making a lot of dresses for my little girl since I got this baby. So far no complaints and I just love it.
I've had this machine for over a year now and it hasn't let me down. I've now graduated from a clueless beginner sewer (what's a bobbin?) to an advanced beginner/intermediate (sewing dresses, dolls and even done some shirring with ease). I would recommend this machine from a beginner to a hobby sewist. It does everything I need it to do, but I would like to upgrade in the future to one with some more functions. This is a great machine at a great price. I would have liked a machine with a hard case rather than the plastic dust cover, but I made a quilted sewing machine cover for it which looks ten times better!
One step button hole, automatic needle threader, DVD instructions, easy to read manual
Excellent beginner sewing machine
I got this baby a few months ago and my my.. I have been sewing everyday since. It is a beginner friendly machine with many good features. I thought the price was excellent for a not-so-basic sewing machine yet an invaluable machine for a beginner like me. I basically started using it right away, making A-line skirts, simple summer dresses and shawls.
drop bobbin case, automatic 1 step button hole (brilliant for beginners), automatic needle threader (my eyesight is rather poor), inexpensive and very reliable
