It arrived! My Brother NS-40 computerized sewing machine.
My daughter is the big sewer in the family and had these great comments about the machine.
Two words: SEW AMAZING!
I was super excited to try out my new Brother NS-40 sewing machine and it didn't disappoint one bit. I started up my machine and was wowed by the LCD screen and touch controls, automatic bobbin-winder and needle-threader. I tried out a few of the 40 programed stitches and churned out 3 ferret hammocks in just over an hour! Drop in bobbin-loading, auto backstitch feature and a stylish design make this machine a great pick for anyone looking to upgrade their older model; This is a wonderful machine for the beginner or the seasoned sewer.
At approx $499. ,this machine is a bit costly, but with Brother's limited 25 year warranty this is definately a great deal and well worth the extra splurge. I have purchased many low-end sewing machines under $200.00 over the years and you really do get what you pay for; and the NS-40 is a sure bet on money well spent.
This machine is easy to use and allows for simple clothing repairs, quilting, 5 types of buttonholes and free motion stiching. It has enough bells and whistles for a person to play around with but not so much that it becomes hard to use or an unnecessary function.
I enjoy making my own clothes (and stuff for my ferrets' cage) and usually repair clothing a few times if I can instead of just throwing anything away. I have been working on cutting the pieces for my third T-shirt quilt and cannot wait to get sewing!
Whether you're new to sewing or a skilled veteran, you'll love the creative potential the NS-40 brings to your design table. Dream it, then do it with the NS-40's wide array of decorative stitches and convenient machine features. Made by Brother, powered by your imagination!
