Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I've had my machine for a little over a year. This machine is great for basic sewing needs. The button hole feature is awesome, drop-in bobbin is super handy, and the self-threading feature is definitely a time saver. My machine has never skipped a stitch, and always works perfect. It's really easy to use. The only problem I've ever encountered with it, is often times if you're sewing fast enough the cover over the spool of thread can fall off, and a lot of my old bobbins won't fit for the bobbin-loading feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I bought this machine having not EVER used a sewing machine in my life! I read read the manual as I went along and taught myself to sew in one day! The threading is super easy and all the functions work great. I am thrilled with the machine and look forward to purchasing an embroidery machine also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Irate After opening it! IRATE! Looks fancy and after over an hour debating in the store which machine to buy I went with this never realizing It doesnt come with a DVD like all the other machines. Its not pre threaded either. On top of it I am a rush to fix an outfit and now have to read through a darn manual just to figure this darn machine out. I am probably going to return it and buy a singer! As far as accessories it come nearly bare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm so delighted I bought my Brother Project Runway Limited Edition since I needed more embroidery stitches for my small hat business. Holy Toledo - I got 100 stitches that I just select with a button, at least 40 of which will work for my designs. Plus a slew of utility stitches that I didn't even know existed; I'm using the specific overcasting stitch *for thick stretch fabric* today, to attach fleece to the back of a knitted afghan. It's saving me so much time! The auto threader is a godsend for 60+ eyes, and I love being able to see the bobbin in mid sew. Lightweight, quiet, and it came from Walmart with 7 presser feet, saving me even more money. I understand now why it's getting rave reviews. I may be looking at other Brother products in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressive Light Weight Sewing Machine. I grew up with Singer. I have 4 Singer Sewing Machines that I thoroughly Love and Enjoy sewing with. I been sewing for 48 years now. I do sewing repairs and alterations, home decor, Curtains, Pillows, Quilting, and Clothing. I drove up to my Mother's House in Michigan to get it ready to be sold. When I arrived here I did not realize that I needed to bring one of my Singers with me on this trip. The saying goes " Hind Sight is 20/20". I then went to Walmart to look at the Sewing Machines that they had. I limited the search down to Either a Singer 60 stitch sewing machine, or the Brother CE1100PRW project Runway Limited Edition 100 Stitch sewing machine. I decided to buy the Brother CE1100PRW Sewing Machine for it's features, being more portable and Light Weight. This is my First Brother Sewing Machine. I consider this to be a more basic sewing machine. This sewing machine is so light weight which makes traveling with it easy. For a light weight machine it sews smoothly with out any walking or vibrations. It has lots of features and stitches for a basic machine. When you let up on the power control foot the machine always stop with the needle in the down position. This feature is Great Especially when quilting or turning corners. It has a nicely lighted sewing area. 100 True Stitches with out reverse images. Plenty of decorative stitches and button holes. I bought this machine on September 30, 2015. I have not done that much sewing with this machine as of yet. However, I sure did put this machine to the test using scrap material that I had found. There are No Skipped Stitches. No Bird Nesting, No Jamming, No Broken Needles, No Broken Threads. It is easy to use, Light Weight and sews beautiful stitches. The only complaint would be the LED area is not lighted which makes it difficult to see the information that is in that area. Suggestion would be to make the LED area lighted for easier viewing. I have learned my lesson when I arrived at my mother's house here in Michigan. For now on when traveling I will be bringing my Brother CE1100PRW Sewing Machine and sewing supplies needed with me for that "Just In Case" situation. It's an Ideal Light Weight Machine to have with you when Traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Sewing Machine I decided last year that I really wanted to learn how to sew. I'd sewn a couple of easy projects as a kid, but basically this was a totally new adventure. I did a lot of research on sewing & machines. I was initially going to buy a different PRW edition, but decided one day I needed one IMMEDIATELY, and bought this one instead of ordering online. This machine is great! As a total beginner I have found it SO easy to use. Threading the needle (which I've feared since a child) is a breeze. The manual is logically laid out, and I've used it many times for reference. Switching out needles and feet is easy. I love that it came with several options of both and quickly learned how to use different ones for different projects. (I also bought a few other feet- the walking foot is my favorite so far!) I've made a few things to sell eventually, but mostly I've been making clothes for myself- and they're turning out great! Even with the harder fabrics like jerseys and chiffon. (Okay, maybe "great" with the chiffon is a bit of an overstatement!) Overall this is a great machine, and if you're a beginner it's especially great because it's so easy to use... but you still have SO much room to grow with it, without needing to upgrade for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received this machine as a gift about 7 months ago. I had NEVER used a computerized sewing machine before and I found the manual overwhelming in the beginning. However, in time I realized just how easy this machine is to use. I love the stitch guide posted on the front of the machine for easy reference. It threads easy and I LOVE the fact that the needle stops in the down position when you finish sewing. I use my machine to make toddler clothes, small quilts, and dolls for the kiddos. I thoroughly enjoy using this machine. The only thing I am still getting used to (or would change) is the built-in carry handle. But I am so used to the movable handle on my other machine (which I have had for over 25 years).
Date published: 2015-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from bought as an upgrade I bought this as an upgrade to an older Singer machine, I wanted something with more stitches and with an automatic buttonholer. My prior machine had a 4 step buttonholer which I could never get to work exactly right. Because this one offered multiple 1 step buttonholes, I decided it was probably going to be what I needed. I almost didn't want to buy it because of the "Project Runway" aspect, even though I am a fan of the show, I wasn't sure if that would make it a cheaper product or what. But I decided to go with it because the other machines I was looking at didn't have as many stitch options. I am EXTREMELY happy with it!! Only thing I would change about it is the thickness of the front arm part, as it is hard to maneuver the fabric around it when trying to sew small armholes in garments I make for my 2 year old. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Super easy to thread and change the presser feet also!!
