Best option for beginner!
I bought this sewing machine as a birthday gift for myself and I found myself completely felt in love with it. It is very easy to use and sufficient basic functions to choose. As a beginner, I learnt how to hem trousers from YouTube and there were not only money saving but also lots of fun and self-satisfaction.
brilliant little machine
I read as many reviews as I could before settling on the purchase of this Brother. I am an experienced and prolific home sewer. I don't want or need a heap of fancy stitches - I do want a machine that holds a great tension, sews thick and thin fabrics easily and importantly one that I can make professional looking buttonholes with. I am so happy the machine has lived up to my expectations. I had a test run with both this machine and the JS1400. The little extra money for the JS1700 is well worth while.. Very satisfied so far
