Description

In a matching thread you wouldn’t notice this, but if you use a contrasting thread it would look messy. It can quilt straight lines OK, but the machine does wander slightly to the left/right, so it’s hard to sew perfectly straight.

Simply Sewing magazine’s Technical Editor Roisin loves every part of the dressmaking process, from sketching to sewing the final design, and enjoys working with luxury fabrics such as silk and chiffon. Expand the work area of your sewing machine with an easy to attach, extra wide extension table that is perfect for larger sewing projects. When lifting the machine, be careful not to make any sudden or careless • movements, otherwise you may injure your back or knees. The machine doesn’t come with a cover of any sort only a thin plastic wrapper (which you could use for the meantime until you sew your own! 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 foot doesn’t grip the fabric enough when you’re sewing multiple layers, so it does wander slightly to the left or right by 1/8″ (3mm). It doesn’t have speed control, or the ability to sew without the foot pedal (using the start/stop button). The LS14 sewing machine features 14 stitches including three embroidery stitches and a 4-step buttonhole. There are five stitch length options (for straight stitch), plus left needle position, six zig zig stitch widths and lengths a four-step buttonhole option, blind hem stitch, stretch blind hem stitch and a three step zig zag stitch for attaching elastic. It pulls the fabric into a tunnel with the standard tension of 4, so more experimenting is needed with that.

Suitable for beginners, the LS14 Brother sewing machine is perfect for basic alterations and repairs. A zipper foot comes included in the box, and the machine is supported with a 3 year manufacturers warranty. The machine has a push down spool holder – this is a brilliant idea and means removable ones won’t get lost. We are happy to exchange or refund your purchase within 14 days providing the goods are in a fully resaleable condition. In general, machines that are classed as "Very Basic" tend to have only the bare minimum of features needed for sewing and are best suited for those who only sew occasionally, or who are only just learning to sew and do not need more than the most essential features.Our expert testers try out this entry-level sewing machine – perfect for beginners or those looking for a second machine to take to classes or sewing clubs!

The machine includes several accessories, including a needle set, bobbins, and a seam ripper, giving users everything they need to perform basic sewing tasks. If this occurs, place thin paper or stabilizer material under the fabric and sew it together with the fabric. I do think a complete beginner would struggle the first time, but with the manual and a few practice attempts, I think you’ll be fine. The machine’s built in light is quite dim, I tested the machine during the daytime with my blinds closed to get an idea of the light quality. She’s a sewing pattern pro with a skill for adjusting and hacking patterns to fit and for editing dressmaking instructions to make them accessible to sewists of all abilities.

As the needle area is quite low under the main threaders section of the machine, you need to hunch over a little to see the needle area to thread it. Simple yet packed full of essential features, the LS14 boasts a top load bobbin, an LED sewing light to illuminate your work, is easy to operate and delivers smooth, quiet sewing. My old machine had a horizontal 'leg' at the back which supported the sewing table better when using the free arm mode.

This clever little sewing machine is lightweight and portable, so you can easily stow it away when it’s not in use. The included screwdriver is a flat metal piece, so is more slippery than a standard mini screwdriver.

If you're a more experienced sewer looking for a second machine to take to sewing classes then this also a good choice.
