Question

Does the SQ9185 have a needle up/down button?

I cannot find any detail on whether or not the Brother SQ9185 has a needle up/down feature. This is important to me since I do a lot of free motion quilting. I did read that you can drop the feed dogs so I would hope you could set the needle position to up or down also. Thanks.

Hi Debbie, I own this machine and yes it does monogram! It's pretty basic, only one font but it's still pretty neat. This is a step up from the SQ9050 it has more workspace and more features but both monogram :)
