Brother CS6000i Information

"Don't let the low price fool you. This is a great machine!" - Plein Jane

The general consensus for this machine is that it is an incredible value to be snatched up, rather than debated. It comes with the same attachments as $1,000 models, offers useful features other bargains didn't even consider, and is much lighter weight and easier to move than the more expensive models.

"I wanted a mid-range sewing machine with some flexibility, and this is the machine." - J. Hrametz

How to Buy Online

Because of the nature of online purchases, it is important to remember a few tips:

  • Read the reviews with a grain of salt. Try to ignore the very low or very high ratings, as these may be fake (competitors or manufacturers). The more detail, the better, but if you think they may be lying, again, ignore them. Better to feel comfortable.
  • Buy from a reputable dealer - this means via major stores like, or through independent sellers in marketplaces that have many good reviews. 
  • Always check the return policy to make sure it works for you.

If you are buying a sewing machine as a gift, then follow these tips, too:

  • Don't buy a sewing machine outside of the person's abilities. If she is a passionate seamstress, then get a fancier and more feature-rich model. If she is just beginning as a hobby, then sticking with a less intimidating model is probably your best bet.
  • Price has little to do with ability-level. Mechanical sewing machines are inexpensive, but they are very difficult to use - especially for beginners. Computerized machines are more pricey, but can be the most friendly, as long as they are well-designed.

Other Gifts Ideas for Crafty People

  • Informational books on sewing, or project books, which sometimes come with guides.
  • Other art and craft supplies - especially if they are into things like scrapbooking, doll-making, or quilting.
  • Nice sewing accessories, like heavy duty thread, buttons, and trim.
  • A collage or other project you made yourself. This has sentimental value and appeals to his or her interests.
  • A book or movie about inspiring people or things - something that will give them creative fuel for years to come!

That Brother machine at the beginning of the article looks like a good buy! I haven't used my machine in a while; so I am trying to get it back in shape. If I can't I may have to give this one a try. Thanks for featuring it.
