The Machine is fairly lightweight and portable and is made by Brother a pretty good brand. You can connect the machine to a computer if you desire and it does come with a USB cable for that purpose. This way you can upload embroidery designs directly from the internet to the machine. This will also allow you to update the software of the machine itself. This one sews as well as embroiders so you get dual action out of it.

Most people that purchased this machine were pretty satisfied with it's operation. It performed fairly well in tests. It has electronic controls so it is a little different than a traditional foot pedal machine, customers say once they get use to the new controls that they like it a lot.

One customer said "It is such an easy machine to use. A good suggestion is to watch a video on it's features and use ,first. Also, purchase thread and stabilizer at the same time. I am really pleased with it so far." rating 9/10

One customer who bought this machine said "love this machine!! It was incredibly easy to set up and performed just like the instruction booklet said it would. The designs look great. It's easy to increase and decrease size and change threads, etc. I've never used an embroidery machine, but this is fun! It's easy to download designs from the internet and try them on the machine. The only problem I've had was the skipping of some stitches on the patterns, but I believe this is due to the poor material I was using for practice. My only complaint is I wish I'd known how much I'd love this as I would have bought a bigger one!"

The Brother machines seem to rate very well in customer reviews. If you do buy an embroidery machine make sure that you will get enough use out of it to justify the price. rating 9.5/10
