 So, my old 13 year old sewing machine has been acting up this last week and last night it got on my last nerve! So hubby and I went out today in search of Brother sewing machines. Found one at K-mart (everywhere else had singer machines! Even Walmart, they had the brother displays but no boxes, only the singer boxes). Im loving this sewing machine!! I got the Brother Computerized Sewing Machine. I cant wait to try out the different stitch types on it!

Im loving the backstitch button (mine was pull the handle down, press the foot pedal, sew backwards), this one back stitches for you, no pressing the foot pedal.

It has a self needle threader - my eyes arent that bad yet that I cant thread it myself, but this makes it faster and I dont poke myself every time on the needle haha.

And it comes with the double needles for stitching 2 rows at once (for when I do the fancy stitching on clothing for the girls!).

So far Im loving it!

i got mine last week yours looks nothing like mine yet they are both computerized brothers my backstitch does 1 stitch then stops if i hold the button, it keeps backstitching even when it has no reason to do so i just figure its because i turned it off when i got an error message mines a project runway and ive had it for 8 days now

 I saw the project runway ones at walmart but they didnt have any boxes for them (not in stock), just the display one. This one is a 60 stitch SC6600 Brother.

 LOL Bro that's funny! I have only heard good things about the Brother machines so I wanted to get one before I even considered any of the others. I heard Singer machines are ok but they have had problems, and Kenmore would have been my second choice since I've had one for 13 years - but Im loving this Brother machine - so smooth.
