Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use for amateur Great so far, haven't used it extensively yet, but have lots of plans! So easy to thread and sew. Lots of different stitches and a zipper foot too. Much lighter to carry than my previous one. 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent buy! My hubby bought me this machine for my birthday purely on the recommendation of the John lewis staff. And a huge thank you to the lady who helped him. Its brilliant. Its my first time sewing and it really makes it easy and fun! Also the lady who did my demo today has taught me loads and really has given me more inspiration and confidence to get going to create some fun items!!! 08 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brother JK Sewing Machine Best thing I did buying this machine its excellent and a very good price I will soon make my money back by taking up my own trousers Good machine for a beginner, staff at John Lewis very helpful. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what I need it to! Bought this machine to help with some DIY projects, it's simple to use which has inspired me to do more projects! Plus fix clothes, take up curtains and all the other little bits that need doing in life .... 03 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brother JK2500NT A good purchase but nearly didn't buy it as the diamentions on the web pages are incorrect so those out looking to purchase rather go to the store and get them first hand. 26 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by No regrets! Having decided to treat myself to my first new machine ( always had hand me down machines.....not sewn for years, until recently) I have read more reviews on machines than I wish to think about! Glad to say that I've made an excellent choice for someone who has reignited their passion for sewing. 19 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very impressed Just love this sewing machine, does everything I want it to do - and does it well. Did have a problem with the needle threader at the start but with a bit of practice now manage it fine. Once I realised that the hook is really tiny things got better! If I have one complaint it's the area around the needle. I find it a little cramped and difficult to see, even with the internal light, although this could be due to my poor eyesight rather than a fault with the design of the machine. I bought a cheap small adjustable lamp that I can focus onto this area. Problem solved. 11 May 2014
