Brother XL2610 Free-Arm Sewing Machine For Beginners
Brother XL2610 Sewing Machine Review: The Brother XL2610 is an easy way to start out on sewing. If you’re thinking of making a buttonhole, all you have to do is purchase a separate attachment which can only cost you for as low as $40 in a good fabric store. However, you’re thinking of using this sewing machine for constructing denim, and then it may not be a very good idea, as needles can easily break when worked on denim. This is not a denim dedicated machine. Also, getting a small screwdriver (one that can fit in your palm perfectly) can be really convenient to have, as changing needles may need an extra screwdriver to fit into the machine’s small part. Another downside of this machine is that you can’t make extra sewing decorations as you can’t pull your fabric in any other directions. This machine only allows you to go straight forward and/or backward.
The features of this model are really good for beginners, as its components just work for its basic use. If you’re already a skilled tailor or sewer, then you might opt for higher-end models, as this machine can be only good as a back-up.
