The Heavy Weight presser foot has a larger "foot print" that assures better contact of the fabric to the feed dogs.

SA172 Very Narrow Foot for PQ Series

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Brother machines are very dependable don't have any trouble out of them I have a embroidery machine I've had for 22years and have never had any trouble out of it I really like the new machine I got I use it for quilting and it does a great job

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my favorite Awkward position for installing bobbin. Lighting by needle is inadequate. Sews fast. Still learning how to use all the different feet.
Date published: 2017-10-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from still working out the quirks I wish I could say it was the best machine ever, but truth is I am still wrestling with its quirks. I graduated from my Brother No. 1 (XR3140) to this one because I quilt and wanted a bigger 'throat' space for larger projects. The bobbin is a pain to install, the tension is difficult to pinpoint and only my foot can regulate the speed. Unlike Brother No. 1 which is computerized. I miss the buttons that Brother 1 has. I am still struggling with this more expensive Brother. Would not recommend for beginners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sew far, sew good I’ve really enjoyed sewing on the machine. I choose it over my d2500 now. I took a class yesterday and the teacher tried it and goofed it up royally. I missed most of the class trying to fix it. Brought it home and hubby fixed it (he took a class with Brother and they had to tear one apart and put it back together). Last night it was sewing like a dream again. Love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice machine but, to small for my needs I saw the Brother PQ2500SL online and considered purchasing it. I had to take my Brother computerized sewing/quilting machine in for service and saw this machine being used. Being new to quilting I thought it was the machine for me. In addition, I purchased the brother quilting frame and professional software package. I was excited with the thought of having my own set-up in my sewing room. Once everything was set-up the realization bubble of what I had initially thought was everything I would need to do my own quilting was burst. My machine was to limited. While it's a great machine, it's just to small to meet my needs without a lot of additional work to complete my project. I'm disappointed in that perspective. Now, I need to look in my piggy bank to see how much a larger machine will cost and then what will I do with a sewing machine that has only been used for about an hour. Uugh!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this Brother machine I retired and purchased this machine to replace an old machine that had trouble with the tension. This machine has been wonderful. It is only for straight stitching but that is what 95% of my sewing is. My daughter, who has never sewn, came to make burp clothes for a baby shower and was able to pick up on the machine quickly. She said the machine was easy to sew straight and accurate. I would highly recommend purchasing this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Brother I've been sewing for 60 years and have never before had a machine as fine as my Brother PQ1500SL. I chose it for its superior quilting.
Date published: 2017-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value As a beginning quilter, I did a lot of research and compared this model to similar models that cost much more and couldn't come up with a reason to not buy this one over the others. Not wanting to review it without a fair number of hours on it, I waited until now, at which time I've completed approximately 7 quilts. Initially, It was supposed to replace a 30-40 yr old Kenmore 12 stitch machine used for piecing, but a short time later I bought a quilting frame and I now use this exclusively on the frame. I have no complaints about the machine and any sewing problems have been caused by me (leaving the foot up, not checking tension before sewing, typical beginner's mistakes.) I have seen complaints about the threader, but I just take my time with it and use tweezers to pull the bottom thread up like another reviewer suggested. I'm mechanically oriented so I like the manual thread tension; it's simple and does the job once you're familiar with it. It stitches very, very well and there have been no skips while quilting on the frame. Yes, for those interested, it does have small throat area for a quilting frame, but it's much larger than standard home sewing machines and much, much less expensive than one with a larger throat. All in all, I think is one of those purchases that are an excellent value for the money.spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine for piecing and free motion quilting Great for piecing - super fast!!! Sews really straight when feeding. Also on quilt frame using as a mid-arm machine - very easy to use the free motion quilting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome choice I finally decided to upgrade to a new machine for quilting. This machine did not disappoint! I love the large harp (throat), it is much bigger than my Singer machines. I am new to quilting to this machine was well worth the money. Just right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes quilting a dream! Love this machine with all the bells and whistles. Makes sewing my quilts so smooth snd is a dream to do free motion quilting. Handles thick denim like a pro. I am enjoying quilting so much more since I bought my PQ1500SL!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, love this machine I bought my machine about 2 months ago from Ken's Sewing online. I plugged it in and started sewing and quilting. No need to adjust the tension. Love the thread cutter that works every time. The table and all the feet that came with it are impressive. This is not only a super machine, but a super value. Yes, it just has a straight stitch, but that is all quilters really need!
Date published: 2017-06-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good machine issues with straight stitching. Not as smooth as the Singer Machines and Bernina Machines that I have used in the past. Straight stitching is a challenge with this machine. I like that it's a simple work horse of the machine with a lot of throat room. Just still evaluating if I'm happy I moved away from Singer or regret it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So glad I bought it I make purses and totes to sell, many from recycled denim jeans, so needed a heavy duty machine without all the bells and whistles my Borther 420PC has, of which I love, but never used 95% of its available features. I was disappointed that Brother didn't have a straight stitch needle plate available for my 420PC, and after 7 years of faithful service of that machine, I decided to look into another machine. My PQ1500 SL was just what I wanted. I LOVE this machine. it is very easy to use, sews through many thicknesses with ease, and with the exception of not having a free arm feature, I love it. I had to buy all new bobbins for this machine, and found them in bulk on Amazon (box of 100). Not Brother brand, but the same size, and unfortunately, about 1 in every 7 or so bobbins do not fit just right and will not wind the thread. I guess you get what you pay for! I can see this machine would be a great machine for quilters as well, then small needle hole in the straight stitch needle plate would eliminate the need for leaders and enders and not "eat" fabric when piecing (which my PC420 did). Yes, I am so glad I made the decision to buy my PQ1500SL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable sewing experience I purchased this machine to use on heavy fabrics, I make bags and use outdoor and duck fabrics. It sews like a dream with size 69 thread and an size 18 needle. It has the power to run through several layers of fabric but is still delicate for lighter fabrics. The only tension problems I have had was my fault of resting my leg against the knee lift while sewing. The needle threader is joke especially on heavy thread, I find this a minor flaw. The thread cutter works most of the time although I have found proper threading is important but it still doesn't work properly with thick fabrics, again not a big deal, since I bought it for its sewing ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine! I originally planned to buy a JUKI, but after reading the reviews on the Brother, I went with the 1500SL. So glad I did. Very pleased with the straight stitch, free motion sewing, and the ability to drop feed dogs in 4 positions. I now prefer to do my straight stitch sewing on the Brother. Between this and my Viking, I have all my sewing needs covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine I am extremely pleased. The speed and accuracy are better than I anticipated. The only difficulty I have is loading the bobbin, but that is because of my arthritis. It is easy to maintain and very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it. This machine is a work horse. Carefully watch how to thread the machine and you will have no problems. The work space has already allowed an over sized California King quilt with no problems. If you have large hands, like I do, the bobbin might be difficult to install, but worth the struggle once it starts sewing. It is so smooth. I saw reviews about the thread cutter, cutting the thread too short. I find it perfect. I don't want long thread after its cut. The only complaint I would have is a needle threader would be ideal. With a side threading needle, it would be much easier with a self-threading mechanism. This isn't a deal-breaker for me. I use a separate needle threader anyway, so I can deal with it. It would be a nicety, not a necessity. I researched and tried so many different machines for quilting. There were so many machines that had so much extra that I didn't want or need. I have another Brother machine for the fancy stitches and extras. This machine is my quilting dream. I can't imagine how I ever quilted on anything else.

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.
