WOW!!
September 19, 2013
By sewcrafty from Central New York
I have had this machine for just under 7 years and it is a little powerhouse!! I have done a ton of embroidery with it and I really like the fact that it can be easily converted to a sewing machine too! It's the perfect size if you don't have a lot of room for a huge machine or two separate machines, one for sewing and one for embroidery. It does it all! You will NOT regret buying this machine. I've sewn for many years and this machine is awesome! I LOVE Brother!
