Question

Would this be a good sewing machine for my teenage daughter.

Hi, I am looking to buy a budget sewing machine for my teenage daughter who loves to sew and make her own hats and shirts. What do I need to know when buying a budget sewing machine? Right now she uses thread and a needle . We don't have a lot of money but don't want to buy her something that would embarrass her or not do the things a sewing machine should. ( although I think she'll be thrilled with anything!# I just don't know what a machine should have # I can't sew myself).

Hi, worriedmommy. I happen to love my Brother machines. They are both great. I started sewing when I was six or so (I'm 33 now). I learned on a few brands and types of machines, but I've found Brother's machines to be both reliable and durable.

If button holes are not an issue, this machine will easily handle anything your daughter is making right now. This machine doesn't have a specific function to make button holes, so if your teenage daughter wants to make button-down shirts, she will either have to get creative with the zigzag feature and do a work-around, take them to a seamstress, or you will need a different machine.

If you can spare the extra $25, I would recommend the JX2517. It will more easily handle her growing talents! It has the automatic button hole attachment that will make them much easier.

Your daughter sounds very creative! Good luck-and don't worry-she's going to be awesome! :)

Ive had a Brother machine for 20 years now, its lcd panel is going but the machine u are asking about does not have one to worry about and ive put many miles on my machine. You could try this one and walmart has an easy return policy. The thing to try is sew through two layers of denim and if the machine doesn't bog down then it would be a great starter, when your daughter gets into high school u could upgrade then . Have fun, I am over 50 and started sewing in 7th grade- I still love it!

Question

does this machine have a button hole attachment or automatic buttonholer? and does it have an automatic bobbin threader?

answer 1
There is not a button hole feature on this machine.

As for your other question, I'm assuming you want to know if it will wind bobbins. The answer to that is yes. Looking at the machine, there are two nobs in the middle of the top right-hand end of the machine. That's where the bobbin winder is.

There does not appear to be a needle threader, but when the needle is threaded, that usually will pull the thread up from the bobbin.

I hope this is helpful.

answer 2
No button holder or attachment. Yes, you put the bobbin on the bobbin winder spool and push your pedal to wind it.

What accessories does it come with?

The description says it comes with several accessories but the box does not show it. I bought this as a gift and want to make sure i get the accessories. Needles, bobbins, zipper foot, zig zag foot...

It came with 3 total bobbins, a black spool of thread, a white spool of thread (note: thread is inferior, buy some good thread!!), some needles, a zipper foot, and a darning plate. I do not believe there is such a thing as a "zig zag foot." (I have been sewing for years and always use my regular presser foot). If they do have a "zig zag foot" it is probably just a gimmick to make more money. Hope the recipient loves the gift as much as my niece did!!

answer 2
I have ordered this machine for my niece, but I don't have it, yet. Reading some of the answers about this machine, the one thing that is not coming up and I think it is important to mention about any machine is the needle. The key to sewing heavy-duty fabrics such as denim depends mostly on the type of needle you use in the machine. There are a lot of opinions out there about machines, and it would be like talking about cars! This is comparable to a compact car. It will get you from A to B without the bells and whistles. If you don't want to sew by hand and you are looking for an inexpensive machine, you can't beat the Black Friday deal going on right now for this machine. However, your machine will probably come with a standard or light-weight needle for lightweight fabrics. Some may give you a sample pack, I don't know what this machine will provide. You can and should change the needle with use as it will get dull. You always want a sharp point and you don't want your needle to break while you're sewing. The needle should always be changed based on the fabric you are going to sew. Denim and corduroy are considered heavy materials and need a heavy-duty needle. You can find needles in packs specifically for denim fabrics at any sewing store and probably Wal-Mart, too, in the notions area. Above all, read the manual for the machine and have fun sewing!
