Description

You’ll probably never sew 8 flat layers of denim, but you will sew 6 layer seam allowance humps, and that’s when machines often struggle. For these reasons I would give this machine the lowest score for accessibility as you may need to ask someone for help to use a few of the functions.

For years I've done all my sewing by hand, in the past could never get on with sewing machines but after reading good reviews on this model I thought I'd give it a try. And the lack of a handle (there is a slot for your hand to grip onto) means that I wouldn’t want to carry this machine far without a strong bag to hold it in! If you decide to purchase this machine, I would also pick up a set of small screwdrivers to keep to hand. You can’t leave your accessories in there loose or they’ll fall out every time you remove the front cover. A screwdriver is also needed to remove the presser foot, whereas some machines come with a quick release button to swap the feet over – have a look for machine with this feature if you think fiddly screws might be an issue for you.Do not operate where aerosol (spray) products are being used or where oxygen is • being administered. The LS14 sewing machine features 14 stitches including three embroidery stitches and a 4-step buttonhole. The machine includes several accessories, including a needle set, bobbins, and a seam ripper, giving users everything they need to perform basic sewing tasks. Keep ventilation • openings of the machine and foot control free from the build up of lint, dust, and loose cloth.

X53/X54/X55/X56 XF3656-001 To sew in reverse, push • the reverse sewing lever in as far as possible and hold it in that position while you lightly push the foot controller.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

I don’t have any issues with mobility in my hands, but for someone who does, I imagine this would be extremely frustrating.

Here’s what I found annoying: the stiff backstitch lever, bad lighting, the thread jumping out of the needle, and the lack of a “normal” manual. Operation Manual Sewing Machine IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Please read these safety instructions before attempting to use the machine. You need to keep your accessories in the plastic bag provided, or they’ll fall out every time you open the cover. Another challenge with this machine is that you have almost no control over the stitch length, width, and needle position.DANGER - To reduce the risk of electric shock: Always unplug the machine from the electrical outlet immediately after using, 1 when cleaning, when making any user servicing adjustments mentioned in this manual, or if you are leaving the machine unattended. It has the most important stitches: straight, zig zag, blind hem, rectangle buttonhole, and a few extras.

Overall, this is my favorite machine if you’re on a tight budget, but it’s not my favorite one for beginners who love sewing (go here to see my best sewing machine for beginners review). There are only a few important stitches to choose from, and the stitch length and width settings are pre-set. The Brother LS14s comes with with a clear zip foot (makes it nice and easy to see what’s going on under the foot as you insert a zip) and a buttonhole foot. In comparison to some higher-end machines the options are limited but really these 14 options are all that you need – the only missing stitches would be edge finishing stitches (which you can use zig zag stitch for), eyelets (not really an essential!

I recommend to beginners or novice seamstress' to purchase one of these as it's great as a first sewing machine or one that is compact too.
