Question being asked all over is :
whether tailors/seamstresses, designers and good old home users enjoy using the Brother LB6800PRW Project Runway Computerized Embroidery and Sewing Machine?
The feedback from many users has been that of positive comments and happy praises on its abilities. For one, many of them agreed that using this machine was really easy and that they did not have to spend time reading manuals trying to manoeuver around it.
The fact that the machine allows for automatic embroidering was also fascinating for many users. It was a relief for many of them that they did not have to sit at the table while holding the presser foot down. The machine sews real fast and the only thing one has to do occasionally is to come back and change the thread colors as the machine holds on one spool of thread at a time.
Many of the users have been praising its computer connectivity via a USB port that allows a user to upload their own customized sewing or embroidery projects directly to the sewing machine.
That kind of access gives the user the advantage of expanding their embroidery library hence no need of repeating any patterns if they do not want to.
Many users were also happy with the various built in stitches the machine has as stated above in its features. The clincher is the fact that the length of some of the stitches can be adjusted to up to 5mm and a width of 7mm making it very versatile.
Many praises were sung on its touch screen controls which could be operated with fingers or a stylus. The screen has large buttons which make it easy to operate with and its stylus is resistive which will require the user to push the pen in a little to make a selection.
When editing on the screen, it might become awkward but one can do their editing on a computer before transferring it.
The machine is reliable and low maintenance, a feature that impressed many users who still have their machines working hard and unbreakably.
And obviously, many love the fact that it has a Project Runway Rolling luggage carrying case easing the transportation process.
Many users have an issue with the fact that this machine cannot do sewing and it cannot do designs that are larger than 4” x 4”. To do a large design, one has to acquire special software that will break the design into separate pieces.
