Brother PQ1500S Quilting Machine Review

by fitzcharming

Ready to make heirloom quilts on a sewing machine? This Brother quilting machine touts a sewing speed of 1500 stitches per minute, making it one of the fastest on the market.

The Brother PQ1500S Sewing And Quilting Machine is a popular choice for quilters that use a machine for piecing and quilting. It falls in the upper-mid price range for a portable but is worth the money because it performs like a professional sewing machine. Along with the machine you get a generous accessory kit, and when you order from Allbrands, a handy purple carrying case and $200 worth of extras.

Large Extension Table And Knee and Foot Controls

This Brother Machine Gives You The Tools To Quilt

The attachable extension bed is large enough to handle big projects like quilt assembly, or even draperies. And the Brother PQ1500s model has a knee control for the presser foot and a foot pedal to control stitching speed. This leaves your hands free to manage the project with ease. This machine makes patchwork and quilting a breeze, and is easy to learn to use. That makes it perfect for beginners and experienced quilters alike.

Brother PQ1500 Sewing Features

This sewing machine has some great all purpose features and some that are perfect for machine quilters. Brother’s FAST needle threader saves time and frustration, and both the top and bobbin thread can be cut with the press of a button and automatically reset for the next use.

There is a pin feed system that allows you to sew patchwork pieces together easily. It allows you to get a perfect point where the quilt pieces come together. Once the presser foot is lifted the pin automatically drops for safety. No fabric slipping or sliding. The adjustable feed dogs also drop when the presser foot is lifted and there is a programmable needle stop position, eliminating the need to turn the wheel every time you begin.

The Brother PQ1500S Has The Fashion Industry Blessing

 This Machine Comes Highly Recommended

The former Chairperson of New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Francesa Sterlacci, has officially recommended this machine. Her students at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where she is now an instructor, use it in class.

You can find the Brother PQ1500s sewing and quilting machine at local quilting centers and that may be a good place to try it out, but the best prices are found online. Allbrands and Amazon are two merchants with the lowest prices I’ve found. Did I mention that you get this great carrying case when you purchase from Allbrands?  Along with a case of quilting thread, and an instructional DVD by Paula Reid, and more bonuses.

I was almost going to go into quilting, and was torn between getting a long arm like this one or the little old singer model, but ended up realizing in my small home crocheting would be a better hobby, and love it :-)
