    Brother CS-6000i

    I am having a lot of trouble with my other sewing machine, so I am getting a Brother CS-6000i . I mostly quilt by hand so it will be used for most regular sewing, and quilting small projects. Does anyone have one, and what can you tell me about it.

    Thanks
    JuneBillie

    I do not have that Model, though it was the one I wanted to get but my local Wally World was out of them, I have a Brother CS-8080PRW that was the first machine that I bought. It has worked great for me sew far!!! It has quilting stitches that I like and a very helpful and user friendly manual. Do some research and read reviews online, I like my Brother and it has been good to me sew far!!!!

    Here are some reviews:

    Let us know if you get it and how you like it!!!

    I've had one for about six months, and I love it. I also have an older Pfaff 7570, which I also love. I use them both now.

    i have one and the stitches are very tight and even. i don't like the free motion foot... can't see enough of the quilting area. i have done lots of machine applique with mine...it has stitches to sew to the right or the left. i like the fancy stitches it has. oh, it is a bit noisy, but i got used to that in time.

    It is a good little machine. I found it was not quite heavy-duty enough to do much quilting with, but for piecing it works great. My girlfriend is on her second one. It is her only sewing machine and she really likes it.
    God Bless,

    Brothers are the little siblings of Babylock is what I was told. I got to use my friends for a few days and it was quiet, solid and a truly wonderful machine. You can't go wrong.

    I don't have that model but have used Brothers for years. I have only burned one out while sewing period costumes for Southern Ball, but had already had that machine for approx 12 yrs. The have good tight stitches.

    I have this one, and I love it! The only thing I have found about it, is that it doesn't sew over thicknesses well at all. So I use my antique machines for that.But I have done tons of pieceing like you are describing on it, and noooooo problems.
    And I've had mine for several years.

    Have any of you used this machine to make a Bow Tuck Bag? If it will work ok making this, I will be very satisfied.
