Brother DS140 Sewing Machine 5 5 5 5
Excellent machine with easy to use features As a total beginner the machine is user friendly with lots of easy to use accessories , a good manual and up and running within 15 minutes of taking it out of the box .Highly recommended.Tacky cover though . 25 March 2014
Brilliant basic machine with a lot more ummph This machine is excellent for the beginner or those with experience. It has the ability to progress your skills and it an excellent all rounder; there are loads of other compatible feet available to take your sewing to another level. I have upgraded to another Brother but still us this machine for most things as it's lightweight, so easy to use and just basically brilliant. Would not be without it. 20 March 2014
brilliant sewing machine lightweight, even stitches easy to use and self threading . love it already made curtains on it and can't wait to use again. substantial without being heavy really a dream to use. so many stitches and extras like buttonholes etc., make it well worth the extra money spent over a basic model. highly recommended. 14 January 2014
Easy to use and perfect for the Job I recently decided to take the step up from hand sewing/embriodery and get a sewing machine. After looking at lots of other different models I choose this model as it looked good for a beginner but also for when I have some experience. This machine is perfect. Does everything I want it for and is really simple to use. Even my Nan can use it and she is starting to struggle with her old machine. The speed setting is very useful when learning how to use a machine and the start stop button is an excellent feature. I have nearly completed my first project (an apron) and it has been great so far. I look forward to furnishing my new home with it. 22 January 2013
Great sewing machine! Great multistitch sewing machine. I have agonised for years over changing my 35 year old sewing machine and I am delighted! Surprised how lightweight the machine is, though it feels very sturdy and does not move in use. Much easier to move about than a cast steel machine! Good range of accessories, comprehensive manual (covering several models, get out your highlighter pen!) lightweight plastic foot pedal, (but good size so your foot holds it in place). Instruction DVD included (with irritating background music), though I watched this after working it all out from the manual. One tiny criticism: nasty thin plastic cover, so suggest you invest in the carry bag. Impressive range of features, particularly impressed by auto needle threader, LED work illumination light, no need to bring spool thread up as automatic. If foot pedal unplugged, machine can be operated by switch, useful for buttonholes as it stops automatically. That's just a selection. Great value computerised machine, lightweight, loads of features. 09 December 2012
