Rated 4 out of 5 by AmysNanna Good machine
Upgraded from a 25 year old Singer machine. Pleased with it overall, especially the quick loading of the bobbins etc. My only niggle is that it is too wide for free arm sewing of sleeves. After removing the flat bed attachment It is still too wide to take the sleeves I need to shorten!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindylou66 Brilliant machine.
This is a fantastic machine. Good clear instructions for use. Simple to thread, and the self threading is an extra bonus. I have used it for dressmaking and curtain making; it coped brilliantly with quite heavy curtain fabric. It's lightweight. It sews with or without the foot pedal, and I have quickly adapted to using it without the foot pedal. The cover is very flimsy, so I have purchased a sewing machine bag to store mine in. 100% recommend this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Norfolkgal9 Great value for money
Purchased this machine about a month ago and cannot praise it enough. Has all the features of a machine at twice the price. Needle threader is an absolute godsend. Don't hesitate if you're thinking of buying one, go for it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Et46 Easy to use and light weight
Love this machine so easy to use. The only negative comment is the self threading element is not easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tricia26 Exactly what I wanted.
I love Brother sewing machines and this one is exactly what I wanted.
I paid the extra to have a self threading mechanism, multi-speed sewing action and up and down needle positioning.
It is lightweight which is a bonus. I purchased it as a second machine to another Brother machine I own and intend to use it when I go to my quilting classes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Viv08 Reasonably priced but very effective
I needed a new machine after having my old one for 35 years and I am delighted with my new Brother. The needle threader is a real bonus. Haven't tried all the stitches yet but can't wait to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tow04 Good, easy to use and fairly priced
Very pleased with the product information and the assistance available when I purchased in store! I've found the Brother Ds140 very easy to understand using the enclosed dvd and instruction manual. I am not quite a beginner but by no means am I very experienced. I mostly use the machine for dressmaking and feel it suits sewing light to medium fabrics and there are plenty of stiches and accesories to explore.
