Create custom, high-end works of art with this unique sewing and quilting machine. The bonus- value Foot Pack includes a binding foot for creating and attaching professional bindings to your fabric edges, a cording foot for creating decorative embellishments with 1 to 3 cords, and a gathering foot for both lightly gathering your fabric and attaching it to your project.

The CE8100 includes an expansive array of 120 unique built-in decorative, quilting and utility stitches for constructing your projects and for adding custom decorative stitching, with 8 styles of one-step, auto-sized buttonholes. In addition to the 3 feet in the bonus-value foot pack, the CE8100 comes with 7 sewing feet: a zigzag foot (on the machine), a buttonhole foot, zipper foot, button sewing foot, overcasting foot, blind stitch foot and a monogramming foot.

The detachable wide table provides both added stability and a larger work area for maneuvering your project. The smooth fabric feeding system utilizes seven-point feed dogs for sewing on almost any fabric, and the drop-feed function allows you to do free-motion quilting. Easily adjust the sewing speed to suit your project with the on-board variable speed control.

The CE8100 also includes reliable Brother features such as a brightly lit LED work area to help you see your work, an advanced easy needle threading system that makes threading your needle quick and easy, the Brother exclusive, jam-resistant Quick-set™ top drop-in bobbin system, and clear-view bobbin cover and bobbin that allow you to see when your thread is running low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent purchase About a month ago I replaced my relatively new Singer sewing machine with lots of trouble, with this CE 8100. So far, only used straight stitches and it's excellent. Will try to do other stitches very soon~

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. A better way to sew. Exceptional features. From winding the bobbin to the best little auto needle threader. Can't get any easier. My wife just finished a baby quilt for a Family friend. The CE8100 made it a joy. A wonderfully engineered product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine for a home sewer Quiet, easy to use, fun options! I was surprised how quickly I got used to using my new Brother sewing machine. I have been using a different brand machine for 30 years and thought the transition would be difficult. It was not at all. I love how easily one can change the settings on the Brother machine and it has been very dependable!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Issues with sewing machine This is a basic machine. Somehow the bobbin thread gets tangled often and I have to fix it, that is quite annoying. Let me know if there is a solution to this problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Machine I received this machine for Christmas, and have been enjoying it. It is easy to thread, which I love. I have one complaint, it's impossible to back stitch on this machine. It will back stitch only one stitch. I really don't like that. It is also a little nosy in the bobbin area while sewing. I do enjoy using the machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better. I like all the stitches, wide table and start stop button.I don't like the position of where the thread goes get stuck a lot when sewing. The bobbin winder would be better if not plastic.
