Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A fabulous machine This machine is s simple to use and set up.It does all I need it to do. The only drawback I have found is, the foot pedal is a little lightweight, I would have liked it to be a bit sturdier. Initially I had bought the Janome 7025, at almost twice the price. I had to return that one, as no matter how hard I tried, I could not get it to the right tension. This Brother machine however, sews so beautifully and for less money than many. 05 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine This is a great sewing machine for the money and has been put to good use since it arrived. My previous sewing machine was around 35 years old and I can't believe the difference. Sewing is a pleasure again and not a chore! Set up was simple and it even threads the needle for me! 20 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I was looking for After a a lovely member of staff demonstrated this and other machines..I knew this was for me to replace my forty year old one is proving very satisfactory in every thing I have done with it,especially the self threading device. Would seriously reccomend this. 22 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Machine is very easy to use and as always, the service from John Lewis was exceptional 08 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good sturdy sewing machine Having broken my old machine a few years ago I decided to buy a new machine for basic sewing. Very easy to use, I find the self threading needle wonderful as my eyesight not good enough to thread the needle without it. Instructions on how to set up and use the machine very clear. Would recommend this product. 13 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Good Machine Have had a Brother sewing machine for 20 years and decided to upgrade to a more modern machine (my daughter now has my old machine). Even if your a beginner or more experience needle worker this machine is great having a 25 stitch index and drop in spool plus a threader I am so pleased I stuck with the Brother brand Great Value for Money. 30 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by very pleased Lightweight machine, easy to thread and use and quiet. Much better than the old Singer I had. Only disappointment is the flimsy cover. 15 December 2015
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
