NX-450Q, owned for 4 years
May 6, 2014
By Rose from Colorado
Very disappointed in the quality of this machine. I think it is very cheaply built and certainly not worth the price paid. I have been sewing for almost 60 years--dealing with this machine is frustrating and produces results that I am embarrassed to claim.

Well worth the money
March 27, 2014
By jlouise
I purchased this machine 4 years ago after researching models that work well with thick layers, and it is a great machine! It handles hard to work with fabrics like chiffon and spandex, and easily sews through multiple layers of jean material. I have spent hundreds of hours behind this machine and it doesn't disappoint.

Lots of stitch options and extra feet available to meet all my sewing needs.

A great easy to learn machine!
February 7, 2014
By TNNana from Tennessee
I love this machine. It is a basic and easy to learn machine. You can always get more bells and whistles but this sews great. I needed a machine that would sew jeans and quilt well. As far as it not having the open toe quilting foot, it will fit this machine. I don't know why they do not list it. I have found that most any foot will fit as long as it is a snap low shank. You can also get most any other foot that brother has. This is a 7 mm machine so you can use those too. I have found over the years that not to buy the cheap machines but the middle of the row is always a good machine and a greater buy. The only other machine I would have bought was a lot more money. I could not justify paying that much money as this is my hobby.

Why no Open-toe quilt foot??????
December 9, 2013
By QuiltDivaWannabe from Florida
How can you offer a machine purported to be for quilters and not have an option to purchase an open-toed quilting foot? My NX-450Q came with a clear closed foot quilting foot but, even though the foot is clear, you do not have a "clear-view" of the area you are quilting which is important for quality free-motion work. Unfortunately, I only discovered this as I was getting ready to quilt my annual guild challenge.... You do have an SA187 open toed quilting foot but it is not listed as compatible with my machine....very, very disappointed.
