Nice full size sewing machine
The Brother 27-Stitch Sewing Machine is a great machine for beginners and seasoned sewers alike. Having used my mothers Singer sewing machine from the 70's, I was used to everything being made of metal and feeling real sturdy, so when this arrived I was concerned about the sturdiness and quality of the machine and was unsure of how long it would last. So far I have not had any issues. This sewing machine comes with extra needles (for regular sewing and heavy duty sewing), extra presser feet, button hole attachment, 3 empty bobbins, one bobbin with white thread already installed, bobbin spool, and a DVD and manual to get you started. It has a thread cutter on the side for easy convenient clipping after you get through sewing. There is a storage compartment in front of the sewing deck for storage of your extras and it also removes so you can easily sew hems and cuffs. It has 27 different stitches to choose from and an LED light for the sewing area. The foot pedal and power cord are connected so you don't have 2 cords to mess with. The dial changes the stitches. To me it seemed a little stiff when turning it. There is also a reverse stitch button. It has a handle for easy lifting at the back of the sewing machine. The thread spool on top of the sewing machine pops up and slides back down for when you store it, it is out of the way. Finally, another feature this has is a self threader which is pretty easy to use. Over all my experience with this sewing machine has been a good one. The plastic parts make it more light weight than the older versions our mothers and grandmothers sewed with but I do believe with proper care, this machine will last a long time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone starting out or who has been sewing a long time.
Perfect sewing machine for beginners and pros!!!
I always wanted to own a sewing machine of a modern type, i have always had an old timey one and i loved it, but when i had a chance to review a new one for Walmart, I was absolutely extremely excited and could not wait to get my hands on it! Now, I am not a professional seamstress, but I am also not a beginner, as i took classes in sewing back in a day, so having a sewing machine for me was always kinda of a hobby, plus i love to own one in case if I just have to fix anything that needs fixing. I was so thrilled to receive this Brother LX2763 sewing machine! First, I have noticed that it is not heavyweight, it's about 16 lbs in weight and it came well packed in box filled with styrofoam for extra protection. Also in the box I found a whole stack of manuals and paperwork for the product and also a warranty sheet, describing the simplicity of how to register the product online. I was very surprised to discover a whole bag full of goodies included in the package, such as 1 Buttonhole foot, 1 Zipper foot, 1 Darning plate,1 Button sewing foot, 3 - piece regular needle set, 1 double needle set, 1 Oval screwdriver, 1 Extra spool pin,1 Narrow hemmer foot, 1 Blind stitch foot, 1 Foot controller and a Zigzag foot which was already installed on the sewing machine and also 4 extra bobbins, one of which was already inside of the machine. I absolutely love the foot controller! Like i said, having had the old machine i was used to having a side stick, which i would have to keep on turning around in order to get any sewing done, foot pedal is AMAZING and is so much more convenient! Now, I can easily use both hands for working with material and it is so much better, faster and easier! Also with a foot pedal it is very easy to control the speed at which I am going, from slow to the highest possible, the cord for the foot pedal is about 6 feet in length and I think it is plenty enough to be able to work with it comfortably, but if it is not, an extra extension cord can be easily added for an extra length options! On the front of this sewing machine i found a storage container which can be easily removed in order to store all the necessary extra needles, bobbins, treads, etc. It is not very big in size, but i think it is plenty enough to fit in most of the necessary items! Also what i really enjoyed is watching an instructional DVD, which was included with the machine. DVD lasts for around 24 min and it is very helpful to my mind, as it covers everything from how to turn the machine on, thread the machine, change the needles, switch to a different type of a stitch to how to make the sewing experience better by loosening or tightening up the stitches for the best results. I do not think that this video is specifically for this model of the machine but do not stress out - everything in it is same exact as it is on the Brother LX2763! So yes, the video was very helpful and is very educating, especially for all the beginners! As far as the machine functions go, this machine has got 27 built in stitches, but all together it has got 63 stitch functions to choose from, which is absolutely amazing! Also it allows you to use bottom or the top drop-in bobbin, which is great(if you do not know how to use the top drop-in bobbin, the instructions are easily explained in the instructional DVD)! One feature of this product that I find to be extremely helpful is an automatic needle threader! YES!!! It is an absolute blessing and a huge plus, especially for older people, or for people with limited eyesight, or for anybody at all, because anybody who has ever tried to thread in the needle knows what a frustrating hassle it can be! I absolutely love this feature! No more trying to thread the needle, which just won't let you do it! With a pull of a special piece on the side, beside of the needle, you just align the treat to it and let it go, and there you are - with a perfectly threaded needle in no time at all!!! This product also has got an automatic bobbin winding system, which makes it very easy, fast and hassle free to fill all the bobbins, with any colors your heart desires! I personally think that this sewing machine is a simple machine, it is very easy to use and the amount of additional informational that can be found in paperwork and instructional DVD makes it even easier to use! Though this model is on the lightweight and a small side, don't let the size of it fool you! This little thing has got a very powerful motor, and it definitely shows it, as this machine can do around 800 stitches per minute! The sewing with this product is smooth and extremely pleasurable! For the convenience there is also an LED bulb installed right above the needle, which makes it a little easier to see and work with, but i also think though it does a pretty decent job, sometimes it is still necessary to rely on exterior lighting just to make sure that you are doing the stitching right and perfectly straight! :) I also love the option of being able to control the tension of the stitches to you liking or even for the best results of the stitching on different types of materials! The stitch quality of all the built in stitches is very good, especially to be right out of the box, it seems to be already perfectly aligned, there is no bunching or ripping of the thread while sewing, so yes, i did not have to align the tension at all! For all of you guys who are thinking and looking to purchase this machine and if you love to sew quilts as a hobby or do it professionally, this machine does it all, even for quilting! It has got free motion quilting feature which so cool! Just set this machine on free motion stitching, which is one of the 63 available stitches and it will go through your whole quilt, and while it's working on your quilt, you can take a break and drink a cup of tea or even take your dog for a walk, as this machine will do all the free motion stitching for you in no time, and will not require any of your help! I am absolutely in love with this machine, and for anybody who is thinking about whether it is good enough or not - IT ABSOLUTELY IS!!! Though it is supposed to be a sewing machine for the ''beginners'', it will do everything that any other more expensive machine will and then some, like for example a free motion stitching, which is not available even on more expensive types of sewing machines! This machine can be used by both, beginners and professionals. It is so easy to use, has got a great warranty, has got 63 stitches to choose from!!! And every one of those stitches come out perfect, perfect width(which by the way you can easily change with a turn of the knob), perfect tension, it runs so smooth and works with so fast with a help of its powerful motor! It is not too heavyweight, and it is only about may be a little longer than a foot in length. I LOVE IT!!! The only thing that i would love to have for it is a case, but for the price that this machine cost and all that it does, it is a great hard working little machine, but don't let its size fool you, as you will be amazed by how great this machine works!
Great Sewing Machine!
This sewing machine is a great find! I was able to use it with no trouble and I have never used a sewing machine in my life. The sewing machine is a compact, gorgeous and it comes with everything that you would need to get started. It came with instructions on how to get started as well as instructions on how to use this machine to get the many different sewing stitch styles. The machine is so light weight that my mother was able to pick it up and carry it to the table she wanted it on. And it was so easy to use that she was able to start mending cloths. The many different stitch styles that this machine can do is amazing. I didn’t know that a basic machine could even achieve them, but this machine can. My mother was able to make a custom outfit with this machine and because it came with everything that she needed she was able to start immediately. The only thing she complained about was that the tension this machine puts on the thread is huge and so the thread would break. But she was able to buy some stronger thread to use with this machine and she no longer had that problem.
Perfect sewing machine
I was very excited to get the Brother 27-Stitch Sewing Machine, LX2763, there's a few things it has that I'm very pleased with. The first one is it has a automatic threader which is great for me because I don't see to well anymore and trying to thread it is annoying,number 2 is it has a automatic bobbin threader which is a real pain to get it to load right also. I really like that on the machine it self has the settings for the lengths and tension settings so at a glance you can see it. There are 2 built in cutters for the thread, I really like the DVD the step by step instructions help a lot since I have never sew a button hole, lol or even stitched a lot of the patterns they show, but when they show it to you on the DVD looks like I maybe able to do or try anyway. I am a beginner but this machine looks to be all I could need ti get started. Included with the brother sewing machine is, 4 bobbins,3 piece needle set,Twin needle,Oval screwdriver,Extra spool pin and a Darning plate. Looking forward to making dresses for my Granddaughters and maybe some Barbie clothes to. this is worth the money so if your looking for a sewing machine this is a great one.
I LOVE this sewing machine!!!
I absolutely LOVE this sewing machine. First of all, I know absolutely NOTHING about sewing or sewing machines. I have never really been around a lot of people that sews but have always wanted to learn how to sew. Due to the fact that I knew nothing about sewing or sewing machines, it did take me a while to figure out how to set everything up & get the machine working. Now that I know how to do it though, it is super simple and easy to set up. I LOVE how many stitches the machine can make. I haven't worked with all the stitch types yet, but I'm learning as I go. I started out making something simple (a pillow case) and surprisingly, I was completely done with it within a matter of 10-15 minutes!!! I also decided to sew a "boo boo pack" filled with rice, a heart shaped pillow and a small purse for my 2 year old daughter. Needless to say, I love it that much!!! I honestly can not wait to "practice" more with it and learn even more. I've already been "researching" other projects to try to make. My husband helped me get everything put together and he even sewed using it. He's also looking forward to using it to see what he can make. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this product. I do not know much about sewing machines but the one thing I LOVED about this product is the "self-threading" needle. It helped out tremendously once we figured it out. I think this would be the perfect product for anyone, beginner to professional sewer.
