Add a beautiful, decorative touch resembling handsewn ‘knotted’ candlewicking to embellish pillows, table linens, bed linens, and clothing, or to stitch down appliqué shapes or ribbons. This candlewicking foot has a specially formed, deep tunnel on the underside, which allows the raised candlewicking stitches to pass under the foot easily, and helps prevent unwanted pressure on your finished stitches.

SA132 Quilting Guide

The adjustable guide can be used to sew parallel rows at preset even intervals. Slide straight bar into the hole of the presser foot ankle or walking foot (equipped with a mounting hole). The distance from the needle may be adjusted by sliding the guide from left to right.

SA190 Roller Foot

Perfect for sewing on vinyl, velvet, suede and leather fabrics. The dual rollers on this 7mm snap-on foot help provide for more accurate and consistent sewing, as the rollers work in tandem with the machine feed dogs to pull the fabric through, for a more consistent fabric surface. This foot has a wide needle opening, allowing for a range of stitch widths.

SA140 Walking Foot, 7mm

The walking foot is a moving feed system that holds and moves fabric between the presser foot's upper feed dog and the machine's lower feed dogs to better control difficult fabrics as well as multiple layers of fabric. The walking foot is great for sewing when matching prints or plaids or when fabric drift is an issue or quilting.

Brother® offers several Walking Feet which differ for the width of the feed dogs, shank height, etc. Please check your manual or the machine listings on this website to find the correct Walking Foot to fit your machine. Walking Feet are not for use in reverse or side to side sewing as well as some built-in stitches that include other than forward movement of the feed dogs.

SA156 Bobbins, clear plastic, 10-pack, 11.5 size

High Quality Clear Plastic Bobbins, 7/16" deep. Security notch for consistent bobbin thread winding. 10 bobbins per pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this machin! I bought this machine to take to sewing class because my Viking Topaz is to big and expensive to carry out twice a week. This machine has everything I wanted on it such as: On and Off without using foot pedal, needle up/down, needle threader and ability to move needle vertically. It is easy to set up however the needle threading is different from other machines I've had. Also comes with a small quilting table that I keep on most of the time. All and all, its a great little machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST Sewing Machine I have ever owned. I have been quilting almost all my life (40 years) and I have had several sewing machines along the way. This is the best machine by far. They have thought of everything at a fair and reasonable price. It came with a DVD to show the basic features and the computer stitch selction. SO EASY and so many stitches to choose from. The light is bright and the fabric feeding is a breeze with anything I put through it. Love this machine !! Highly recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needle & Fabric Jams All the Time Need to Return Sadly I think we got a lemon. This was my daughters first sewing machine and she is a very frustrated and upset first time sewer who wants to break down in tears. I feel bad for her. Right out of the box we had issues with the fabric being eaten and thread jamming up. Several times already we have had to remove the dog feeder metal plate to try to cut away fabric and threads just to be able to get the needle to move up so we could finish pulling fabric out of the bottom of the machine. Being first time machine sewers, we figured it may be user error and called support but they told us we were doing everything right and maybe try to adjust the tension up to 5 or take it to an authorized repair shop that is 24 miles away. For a brand new machine I am not taking it to get fixed! However we did try to adjust the tension but as soon as we tried, the self threading threader decided to stop working! Issue after issue! We will be returning this product, but since the features are beautiful we will try and repurchase another one to see if the next machine is any better. If we end up with the same issues then we will just try another brand all together. As a first time machine user this experience does nothing to get us happy or excited to work on our sewing projects. Crossing fingers for next machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So far not liking it. Still having tension problems and too far from a service pl a e. Really disappointed in Brother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right I haven’t used a sewing machine since high school, so I was looking for something inexpensive and easy to use. This machine met all my needs and then some. This is a great machine for beginners!
Date published: 2018-01-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine After dumping my 30 yr. old machine, this was an adjustment. Much lighter weight, quiet, seems to work well. Haven’t tried all the stitches (didn’t really use many on my old one either) but seems easy enough to adjust. A little better pictures for set up & threading would be nice, since there are no directions. And I can’t get the auto threader to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from able to pick up with one hand! I bought this machine to take with to quilting workshops. Not only is it very lightweight, it also sews evenly and has great features like feet that make button holes, quarter inch foot with a guide for perfect seams. The speed is controlled so you don't have to worry about your foot pressure on the pedal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on utility related to price, this is 5 star I purchased this machine to really see what the "bottom line" Brother computerized machines could do and how they stand up to use. IF people would just read the manual and watch the videos and use the helps Brother provides, I believe there would be fewer negative reviews. I have a couple of much more expensive machines, and this is now a backup. I have sewn a complete sampler of all the stitches and tried the lettering and sewed up a quilted greeting card for Christmas through batting, fabric and heavy paper. This machine has performed extremely well. Yes, it is a bit light, and yes, the plastic is plastic, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. I can pick this up and use it whenever I need it! I have the Brother SE400 as well, and wanted a sewing only inexpensive Brother. I would recommend this to any sewer to have and to learn on IF you read the manual and pay attention to what you are doing. TIP - HOLD THE THREADS EACH TOME YOU START A SEAM. That will negate the thread nesting problem on this and many many other models and makes of machines - computerized or mechanical. All in all this machine sews a lovely straight seam, and tight well formed stitches. I am impressed!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest Sewing Machine From the start it’s the easiest machine to use and set up! Love that it threads the needle to the bottom bobbin loading itself! The stitch settings are just a button selection. I’m very pleased and excited to use this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine for traveling I purchased this machine to take to classes, bees and retreats. It is lightweight and has all the stitches I would every need to complete any project on the go. I looked at many other machines but the Brother 9500 was by far the most for my money. Would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Purchase After using this product and finishing a few projects with it's help, I can definitely say it is a good purchase. However, mine in particular is starting to knot itself up on the bottom bobbin while sewing, which is inconvienent because I have to keep stopping to fix it, but other than that this is an amazing sewing machine that allows me to finish my projects in as little as a day a piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine I absolutely love this machine! Easy to use straight out of the box. Love the no pedal feature and the amount of different stitching this machine can do! My first project The ease of use made this an awesome project and now family heirloom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth operator This Brother machine sews really smooth. Love the button and buttonhole feature. I just wish it was just a little more bottom heavy. It’s probably just me being use to older machines, but I like the extra weight.
Date published: 2017-11-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Initially I was very happy with this machine, but after the warranty expired for the computer portion of the machine, it broke. I took the machine to an authorized dealer to have the computer portion repaired and they told me it would cost almost as much as the machine and they recommended not repairing it. I hope your his is not the standard for this machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love! Received this machine as a Christmas gift from my son ( I did some research and this was on my Christmas list that I gave my hubby. I have made a few large quilts with it, repaired clothes and even did some machine quilting on one of my quilts with the decorative stitches. Super easy to set up, love the needle threader. Easy to clean. There is only one thing that I do not care for and that is when you turn the machine off your stitch selector goes back to zero. Because of this I have broken a few needles because I have started sewing without changing it which places the needle lover the medal part of my 1/4 inch piecing foot instead of the whole. I have remedied this with a sticky note reminding me to change it placed over my stitch selector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!!!!! Does everything I need and is very easy to operate. Really like that it has a needle threader.
Date published: 2017-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good everyday machine This is a great machine for home sewing for the family. It does everything that I need. It has enough computer driven features to be a help with button holes etc., so there is less error. I do wish that manual was WAY more detailed. I have had to look many things up using You Tube, and other sites to answer many questions concerning the use of accessories. However the Brother Web Site has been a must for me.
Date published: 2017-10-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have!!!! This is the best purchase I've ever made. I'm an avid sewer who has never used a sewing machine but finally decide to purchase one. This did not dissapoint. Very easy to thread, lots of stiches to experiment with, and great speed control. When I first started I was on the slowest setting but after a week of use I'm etremely comfortable on the fastest setting. I'm now picking up random projects so I have an excuse to use this beauty.
Date published: 2017-09-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best and Easiest to Use Sewing Machine This is my first machine since I purchased a Singer portable in 1955. I used a friend's and found it so easy to thread top and bobbin and very intuitive to use. I would recommend this machine to anyone -- just starting out or getting back to it after many years like me. I love the extra "bed" attachment that enlarges the working space and this machine came with many extras. It was a good bargain as well as giving me everything I could possible want in a sewing machine. I don't know if I'll use all of the different stitches available but I'll sure have fun trying.
Date published: 2017-09-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fun product! I received this machine as a service award from my employer (they offer numerous options through a fulfillment company). I have only been using it for a few weeks, but am having the greatest time. I would consider myself an intermediate sewer, but with all of the different programmed stitches I will be able to make things I would never even attempt on a conventional machine.
Date published: 2017-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect machine Wonderful options. Has everything I could use and more. It literally saved the day when my old machine died. IT SEWS BUTTONS ON!! How could that not be perfect?
Date published: 2017-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift I got this sewing machine as a gift and am VERY new to sewing. It has been easy to learn and has me excited about the projects to come!
Date published: 2017-08-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I had to return - a big disappointment I have been sewing off and on my entire 50+ years. I bought this machine to replace an older Brother machine I had that bought used and was a great machine until one day a plastic part broke that I could not order nor could our 1 repair guy in town fix. So....I had high hopes for the Brothers name! I had this machine for less than 3 weeks and did not even sew everyday on it. It jammed up a few times giving error message....saying machine had locked up and to untangle the threads. Ofcourse there were no threads visible so I had to work to try to get fabric out of machine, took out bobbin case and even took off feed dog plate and looked for any threads. There were none but there was some lint in there so I brushed that out. Within a few days, the same thing happened again. Same results. The third time was NOT a charm and I sent this machine I do not need this kind of aggravation for a hobby that is supposed to be fun and relaxing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must to have I am thrilled with my Brother XR9500PRW. It is easy to operate and the needle threaded is awesome. I love my machine.
