    love this cover stitch
    Super simple to use & makes sewing with knits easy. Only "con" I can think of is this machine is sold with the wrong needles, you immediately need to switch the needles to stretch needles to prevent any skipping

    Love this machine!
    I love this coverstitch machine! It's not hard to learn to thread it, especially if you have some serger experience. It does take some practice and watching video tutorials on how to remove the fabric from the machine and tie off the ends properly. But once I got it, I got it! Now, not only are hems faster and easier, my knits look professionally made.

    Good everyday machine
    This is a great machine for home sewing for the family. It does everything that I need. It has enough computer driven features to be a help with button holes etc., so there is less error. I do wish that manual was WAY more detailed. I have had to look many things up using You Tube, and other sites to answer many questions concerning the use of accessories. However the Brother Web Site has been a must for me.

    Great Purchase
    After using this product and finishing a few projects with it's help, I can definitely say it is a good purchase. However, mine in particular is starting to knot itself up on the bottom bobbin while sewing, which is inconvienent because I have to keep stopping to fix it, but other than that this is an amazing sewing machine that allows me to finish my projects in as little as a day a piece.

    Love this machine!
    I am an experienced sewing, in retirement for several years I worked par time for a store selling all types of sewing, and embroidery machines. I had never thought I wanted an embroidery machine but when Brother introduced the Quatro 6000D I could not resist any longer. I was worried if I would ever learn about all the new things it offered. Brother being in the computer business made there system so consumer friendly, I had no trouble. Now I own the Dream Machine 8500D. Wow what fun I am having ... read more now. Just made a weekend duffle bag out of Pendelton wool that has a canvas lining, faux leather handles and trim,pockets and zipper all with the new move it foot (walking foot). The machine glided through all layers of fabric and fake leather easily. It will take more fun time in my sewing studio to learn many of the new additions to the machine.

    GREAT MACHINE!!!!
    The Brother 8500D is the best machine on the market! I'd had a Husqvarna Epic (top of their line) and returned it. The difference in the two are like going from a VW to a BMW! 8500D is quieter, smoother, and sews / embroiders so much nicer! I had a lot of problems with the Husqvarna and had to sue them in order to return it. I have had ZERO issues with the Brother. I highly recommend this machine if you're looking for quality and dependability!

    great machine
    I absolutely love my machine. It sews beautifully. However, you need to re-write the instruction manual, especially the quilting & embroidery sections so that someone new to these features can walk thru the process step by step. Too much missing, which is very frustrating. I had to keep going back to the store with questions

    Unbelievable!!
    I cannot say enough about this machine! I have sewn for many years and am fairly new to embroidery. This does it all.. The embroidery is absolutely beautiful and with the flash drive capability the designs are endless. The quilt stitching is the closest to hand quilt look that I have ever seen. Professional look on the drapes I just made was so easy to achieve! If you are new to sewing or embroidery don't be inhibited by this product! Leave it to Brother to make the ease of use and and absolute ... read more best quality in one machine. Thank you brother for a dream come true machine in this Dreamweaver !!!!

    Fast and Powerful
    I purchased this machine to sew leather and pleather materials. It has the power to sew through the layers of pleather that my other machines would refuse. I also use this machine to free-motion embroider; it is so easy to lower the feed dogs. I also find that the pedal allows for better control of the speed of the machine than my commercial machine. This one's a workhorse.

    PQ1500S
    A real workhorse of a machine. So far excellent with the exception of a couple of things: wish the bobbin would have a sensor to tell you when you are almost out, thread breakage. We will be excited to actually do a quilt with it. We have been using it to piece and it does a fantastic job. Great 1/4" foot.

    I love this machine
    I'm so glad I purchased this machine, I'm amazed how nice and smooth it operates and it is quiet too. I can get my embroidry projects done so quickly. I rarely use my other embroidery machine any longer except for regular sewing. This was my first ever T Shirt to embroider !!!!!And then there is my hats,this is just a sampleing of my projects. I think they turned out great thanks to my Entrepreneur Pro PR1000e

    Can't imagine not having the 10 needle
    I just LOVE my 10 needle. I actually have 2 - 10 needle machines, and this is just a hobby for me. But they stitch out so well and are easy to use that I can't imagine not having one if you like to embroider.
