The PQ1500SL offers an adjustable pin feed mechanism, 4 feed dog settings for maximum fabric control, a knee lifter and bed extension table for quilting, full range foot pressure adjustment and an automatic thread cutter with F.A.S.T. needle threader - a time saving convenience.
  • 1500 stitches per minute
  • 4 Feed Dog height adjustments
  • Built-in knee lifter to easily raise and lower the presser foot, so your hands are free to re-position or remove your fabric
  • Extra-large extension table

Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's one of my best purchases ever I have two other sewing machines and a Serger. This machine is so back to the basics...straight stitch, strong..and I have already quilted a large quilt and maneuvering the quilt on this machine was great. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On of the best I have owned several Brother machines. I love this machine, it runs smooth. Has a larger bobbin little more throat space. On my quilt frame its a little work horse. And not expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good machine, great for free motion quilting. Great for free motion quilting, very fast if wanted. Had to take in for warranty service; irregular threads, service 5 weeks out. These things happen. Overall we are very happy with brother machines, We now have 11 in service teaching free sewing to residents of Colorado Cty, Tx.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this machine This machine is fast! Set-up was easy and worked great right out of the box. I especially like the thread cutter and knee lift. Stitch quality is top notch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sewing machine I've been happy with the machine for the few weeks I've had it. No problems. Not a real big fan of how to load the bobbin, however I would purchase again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Received the PQ1500SL for Christmas to replace a solid old machine from the 1970s. Have been sewing for many years and have taught sewing classes. Only started quilting last year. This machine is very easy to use and produces terrific results. I was impressed with the variety of feet provided with the purchase. Would have given 5 stars, but the automatic tread cutter has caused frustration. Some days it cuts the tread so short that it pulls out of the needle so I spend lots of time rethreading; other days it works perfectly. Can't yet determine what causes the difference. Overall, and excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New machine for Christmas! I took the intro class yesterday to make sure I knew how to use all the "bells and whistles". Threading it up correctly is important to me so I don't misuse the machine. My hands are getting slower, but not my desire to keep quilting. This should keep those quilts coming!
