Brother LS2125i Sewing Machine User Review
Sewing Machine Reviews Recommendation Level : MODERATE
Brother LS2125i comes third in the Sewing Machine Reviews list of Top 10 Sewing Machines Available In USA Under $200. LS2125i is an inexpensive, value for money, beginners sewing machine. It is very easy to use, so it suits beginners quite well. It includes all the basic features for beginners. It comes with easy bobbin winding and built-in free arm for sewing cylindrical items. The 25 year limited warranty is something I really like.
Brother LS2125i comes with elastic, straight, blind hem and zigzag stitching.The twin needles lets you sew with dual colors. The light illuminates the workspace pretty well. Weighing at just 7 pounds, it is easy to carry around. But I would have loved to have a handle for Brother LS2125i, which would make transportation a lot easier. You might have to buy a carrying case, if you want to take it to classes or something.The auto-buttonhole attachment works perfect. The stitch selector dial is user-friendly. Bobbin winding is super easy as well.
The pedal is pressure sensitive and works perfectly well according to the increased and decreased speeds. Another thing to note is that, you must use the recommended bobbins, other standard size bobbins would be too small for this machine.
I bought Brother LS2125i for my 9 year old daughter. I chose this one as it had all the features that a beginner wants. My daughter loves it.
