    Brother CS6000I

    I've been reading about it on Amazon.com and also perusing the reviews. I am really impressed with it but after reading some reviews, I don't know.
    I really need a better machine than I have now but can't afford a really expensive machine.

    I have it and it works GREAT :thumbup: Some of the decorative stitches don't come out clear - But I don't know if that is a quirk of the machine or the fact I need to get mine checked out :wink: I use mine quiet a bit and have had no real problems . It is light and portable - ask any questions and I will try and help

    Many on this board have the same machine- if you use the search feature above type in the name and you will find many posts on this machine :lol:

    I don't have that machine, but a Brother for $169 sounds like a good deal. I wouldn't pass that up if I were looking for a low cost machine.

    I have a friend who has one and it is great. She uses it to take to classes because it is lightweight. It has a needle threader and needle up/down I believe which is very useful.

    Check out

    http://sewing.patternreview.com/

    for reviews on this machine. I have heard good things about this machine. In September I was working a garage sale sponsored by the sewing guild and got into a conversation with a gentleman who quilts. He had bought this machine for quilting and loved it so much, the following year he bought one for his daughter for Christmas. Thought that was a pretty good recommendation so I recommended it to the parent of one of my sewing students as well. The lucky girl is getting one for Christmas this year!

    Recently bought this because of the decorative stitches. Love it. I found the cheapest place to get it was Walmart online - free shipping.

    The only problem I would have with this machine is trying to quilt on it because of the rounded throat space. It does not allow much to be crammed in there not matter how you scrunch and cram. I have a brother with the rounded space, that is the ONLY thing I don't like about my Brother machine! On the other hand if you have another machine that you could actually quilt on.....then you wouldn't need this machine for quilting! problem solved.
