Q & As

Brother JK1700 Sewing Machine 4.5 5 13 13
Easy to learn Very pleased with the machine. Written instructions fairly clear - just had to go to the provided CD to confirm how to set up the shuttle. Otherwise no problems and it produces nice even sewing. I look forward to trying it out on more fabrics e.g. stretch. Just one minor niggle - the dust cover is not very robust, so the pocket is not really suitable for storing the lead and foot pedal when not in use - and there's nowhere else for it. 17 October 2014
Great machine Easy to use - very pleased with the machine and great value for money. Plenty of functions and stitch options for every day use without the high price tag. 02 October 2014
Amazing Sewing Machine Ever! I have been searching for a long time a sewing machine that can work on all fabrics, thick and thin. Finally, I got JK1700. Easily installed, and I worked in silk, embroidered cotton, linen, and chiffon. JK1700 done Its job amazingly in small price. Thank you Brother. 27 August 2014
Disappointed I bought this machine having read the reviews and on the recommendation of the in store assistant. I have experience of sewing over many years and was seeking to replace my previous machine which has given good service for 37years. I wanted a basic machine but am initially disappointed with the quality and performance of this machine. The plastic parts of the machine seem cheap and fragile (foot lever, bobbins etc.), the manual is badly set out and I am struggling to achieve even decent straight stitching. I will persevere but without much enthusiasm 21 August 2014
Good for beginner. Very pleased with this machine. Easy to follow instructions once you get going. Only slight thing is foot pedal seems to be a bit sensitive. Would recommend. Good value. Lightweight and easy to carry. 19 August 2014
Really Great Product I brought this to start a sewing hobby. As a first timer it was so easy to set up and then to use. I would recommend it to anyone. Excellent sewing machine, fab price 07 August 2014
Easy to use Bought this to replace a 30 year old machine that had finally given up. It is standard set up to thread and made short work of hemming curtains without need to refer to instruction booklet. Very pleased with purchase, ideal for novice and coped well with blackout linings. 29 July 2014
Brother is Fantastic This is a great machine. So glad I purchased it. It threads nice, light weight, the instructions are very easy to follow and I would defiantly recommend it to others. 16 July 2014
