Brother SC6600 great for beginners and pros alike!
I have only bought one other sewing machine in my life and that was 25 years ago. Two day before Halloween it stopped working. I was in a panic and ordered this Brother SC6600 online to pick up in the store. WOW! I've sewn for 25 years on an old singer from sears so my first thought when seeing this out of the box was that it was far too much for what I needed it for. Untli this machine I was a straight stitch and mending stitch person. Not only has my sewing changed in 25 years but, unfortunately, so has my eyesight. I was SO impressed that this machine threads the needle automatically!!! Now I'm making designer jeans for the teenagers in the neighborhood with the myriad of design/embroidery stitches. It's so (sew?) easy! I can't believe I held out so long. It was easy to pick up, thread, etc. I would highly recommend this machine to beginners and old hats, like me, alike.

Easy to use but kept jamming

I had read about Brother and they generally had good reviews.  I bought this machine for my wife who has had a Singer touch-n-sew for years and wanted something new.  We both learned how to thread and everything was fine until she went to sew.  The bobbin thread got all jammed up when sewing fleece.  The machine started by making a clean line but then jammed.  We cleared the jam, rethreaded just to make sure and it did it again.  We did this two times more and ran out of ideas for what to do.  I took the machine back.

I am just getting back into sewing, and this is my first sewing machine (that's my own). I'm very impressed by it's ease of use and have had no issues thus far. I've only completed a few projects, but I'm overall very happy with my purchase. Other people have complained that the foot pedal moves, but I haven't had that issue. If it does become an issue I'm sure a little contact paper will do the trick!
