Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Brother XM2701 Sewing Machine, Lightweight, Full Featured, 27 Stitches, 6 Included Feet. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.70 stars, and the price range is $139 - $174.

The Brother XM2701 Sewing Machine is a small, compact, and lightweight sewing machine that can be more convenient than using a larger machine on a daily basis. For beginners, for smaller projects, or just for a different product with modern features, this sewing machine works just as well as more expensive ones on the market. With a number of features like 27 built-in stitches, 6 feet of continuous sewing, and a free arm, this sewing machine can do it all, from the simple projects to the more challenging stitches.

Customers say this sewing machine does the trick for hemming or small stitches, but also works on bigger projects, too. It is perhaps most recommended for beginners learning to sew because it is compact, easy to use, and the free arm makes it easy to navigate tricky spots. Some say they find threading the bobbin easy. The kit also comes with a DVD explaining how to use it, which both beginners and intermediate users appreciate.

Some say the needle may get stuck, pull, or rip fabric at times. This may be user error, so using the instruction manual is a handy tip.

The tension on this machine never worked out of the box, after trying all the tension levels, it still wouldn't work correctly, very disappointed.

The only time it's jammed was due to a little light user error (ok, maybe I'm an idiot).
