The Brother CS6000i Sewing Machine: Five Years On - Still Going Strong

April 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 305

Although the Brother CS6000i is not an expensive machine and may be shunned by more traditional sewers, it has made a huge name for itself among the tens of thousands of people who have bought and used the machine since it's release in 2007. It is by far the most popular sewing machine on Amazon with over 950 reviews - almost fifteen times the number of it's closest rival in the same price range.

Following are ten features of the Brother CS6000i that help make it the most popular selling sewing machine on Amazon today:

1. Sixty Built-in Stitches

The machine offers sixty different stitch styles ranging from the standard utility stitch to decorative stitches that are even suitable for heirloom sewing as well as various craft projects such as quilting.

2. A Light Weight Machine

The fact that it only weights 13lbs, makes the Brother CS6000i extremely portable and therefore very easy to transport. It is easy to carry in the car and being so light, it is also convenient to bring out, set up and then put away if you don't have a dedicated sewing space in the home.

3. Computerized LCD Screen

This Brother sewing machine has an LCD screen that displays all the information and settings for the stitches as you select them. The LCD screen will also report an error message if an operation is performed incorrectly.

4. Sewing Speed Controller

This machine features a slider button on the front of the machine to control stitch speed. This is great for beginners who are not used to the idea of controlling sewing speed with a foot pedal. Even experienced seamstresses report that having the ability to control their sewing speed more accurately by hand is a boon when dealing with tricky bits of sewing.

5. An Automatic Needle Threader

Automatic needle threading is a really convenient feature, especially for those who no longer have 20-20 vision. It also saves your fingers from the fiddly exercise of lining up the end of a piece of thread with the eye of the needle.

6. Seven Presser Feet For Different Functions

As well as the standard utility and zipper feet, the Brother CS6000i comes with different presser feet for quilting, overcasting, monogramming, blind hem stitching, buttonholing and button fitting.

7. A Hard Storage Cover

The CS6000i comes equipped with a hard cover, which is unusual for a machine in this price bracket. It makes it very easy to store safely, protected from dust.

8. Click On Extension Table

Once again, here is a feature not often included with a sewing machine in this price range. The extension table clicks onto the machine around the free arm. This is a real advantage when you are working on bigger projects and need a larger flat surface to spread your work on.

9. The Ability To Drop The Feeder Dogs

If you are interested in Free Motion Embroidery, you can drop the feeder dogs with the Brother CS6000i. Because the fabric is now free to move in any direction, you can manipulate it under the needle following a freeform design of your choosing.

10. All The Necessary Accessories Are Included

Every possible accessory you could possibly want is included with the machine. There is no need to go out and buy bobbins or needles to get started, for example. Just the same, you would be well advised to purchase an extra set of bobbins and some quality thread when you purchase your machine, as you will then be able to build up a collection of bobbins threaded with different colors as time goes on.

The light weight of the Brother CS6000i is possibly the reason why some regard it as too flimsy and therefore not robust enough to withstand continual use. However these days given that most people don't do a lot of sewing, it serves as a well tested machine offering excellent value for money. It comes with a 25 year limited guarantee, demonstrating Brother's regard for the quality of their product.

The Brother CS6000i is definitely not a top of the range machine. However, with all of the features mentioned above, it certainly offers a value packed product. Being relatively inexpensive it is ideal for beginners and people who need to use a machine on occasions, but don't necessarily intend to us it continually as a workhorse. Mind you, over the last five years there are plenty of happy owners who have.

If you are looking for a tried and true sewing machine without spending the earth, the Brother CS6000i Sewing Machine offers superb value for money and is such an easy machine to learn on. It offers features that will keep you satisfied for a long time to come.
