terrible terrible terrible machine. So is the after service. don't buy from Allbrands. thats all I Have to say about this machine.

Bought it in March. Have never been able to free motion quilt with it. It has been back to the seller (Allbrands). Sent back still didn't work. It has been sent to Brother (still doesn't work. Trying to get my money back,but, have been unsuccessful. Have had this machine 6 months and have not been able to sew with it at all. By the way don't buy from Allbrands.

somewhat useless as anything other than a straight stitch machine, and who uses those any more? looking to replace it with a Tin Lizzy or similar.
nice looking, works well for what it is, a straight stitch only.
I agree - do NOT BUY for a quilting machine - thread and needles break, doesn't have a deep enough throat

OK

If you need to have a machine that stitches 1500 stitches per minute this is the machine to get. However, don't get it for free motion quilting.
For straight stitching in a hurry - this is the machine to buy. It's sturdy and all metal. Fabulous for curtains.
I bought this machine for free motion stitching. IAfter making a few quilts successfully I began having thread breakage problems. I have taken it to several repair places to no avail. After speaking to a Brother representative I began using Top Stitch needles. That helped a little - however, the thread breaking continues on a regular and annoying basis. I've pretty much given up any hope of using this machine for free motion stitching and only use it for straight stitching.

Are there differences in the 1500SL and the Nouvelle 1500s quilting machines?? And when was each manufactured. Thank you!

Afaik, the 'L' indicates LED lighting...but I changed the bulb in my 'S' to an LED as I prefer white light when sewing. Easy fix and depends what colour and type of light you prefer. HTH ;-)

How alike is this PQ1500 sl, to the nouvelle 1500s.
Is it an earlier model? A fre years older. Robyn

It is the same machine, check the brochure here .... https://www.brother.com.au/brochures/PQ-1500S_Brochure.pdf
While this model also has the Nouvelle 1500S logo on the top right side of the machine I've never seen anyone use that name when referencing the machine.
It's a great machine though. ;-))
