Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful machine I bought this machine after I had a really old, heavy machine. This has most of the bells and whistles I need. It is great for quilting. I just wish it had a little longer neck and was quieter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best light weight machine I have used I was visiting my daughter and she had bought this machine. I was surprised how light it was. I want one just to take to sewing groups. While I was visiting, I made a king size quilt for my son-in-law. This machine sewed great. I was impressed how it feed the fabric keeping the bottom and top layer of material I was sewing even. I have several very expensive machines that I love, but I want to add this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just opened box new user So far I have only opened the box and to my surprise I found no cover for the sewing machine. I called customer service to check if they had forgotten to put one in the box. I was amazed to find out this sewing machine did not come with a plastic cover nor did they sell one separately. Every sewing machine I have ever purchased comes with one how could they not include a cover for us to protect our machine from dust. Nor do they sell it separately! Brother USA could you include a plastic cover with all your sewing machines!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Cost, High Qualiity, Easy to Use A huge step up from the WWII vintage Singer I learned on! Recently took up sewing, again, so took a beginning class. By the end of the class, there were three of these machines in class! Filling bobbins is quick and easy after watching the video and the diagrams on the machine provide adequate reference so I don't have to rewatch the videos. Likewise, threading the top side thread is quick and easy and the automatic needle threader makes for quick setup when changing colors. Once threaded, the bobbin automatically routes the thread to the correct position to start sewing. No more manually fishing the thread out before you can start. I've tried about a dozen stitches and all have been beautiful on a number of different fabrics. The lettering is okay, but not great, but for a $200 machine, this machine performs exceptionally well. Overall, for someone who is just getting started, this machine is easy to use, produces good results, and is pretty forgiving. For someone who is more advanced, it has capabilities that will keep you from getting bored any time in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love my Machine I'm using my XR1355 for small and large projects. It was easy to learn how to use. It's easy to use. I made a beautiful king sized blanket for my brother-n-law and my sewing machine. I'm in the process of making 30 more lap blankets for a special project. I would recommend this machine for beginning sewers and experienced sewers. I Love My Machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed The presser foot has a button on a spring that will hold the foot firm while sewing over thicknesses. Unfortunately it does not lock in place, rendering it useless. There is not an accessory foot that does stay locked either. Real bummer.
