Sewing Machine Reviews Recommendation Level : MODERATE
Brother project runway CS5055PRW comes with 50 built-in stitches. It has 25 years limited warranty as well. It is very easy to set up this machine, it won’t take more than 10 minutes. The instructions on the user manual are easy to follow.
This sewing machine is sturdy and good looking. Bobbin winding and threading on this machines is very easy. The automatic needle threader saves the pain. You can easily select the stitches using the push buttons and you can view all the settings on the LCD screen.
It is very easy to use this machine, especially for the beginners. The user interface is very good and it has a variety of stitches. The machine is incredibly quiet as well. Stitches come out perfect and straight.
One difficulty I had with this machine was in getting the thread tension right. It won’t be an issue once you get the hang of it. It does a very good job with couple of layers of denim, but it struggles with more than 4 layers.
- User friendly interface
- Straight stitches
- Variety of features
- Getting the thread tension right is slightly difficult
