- You can select from up to 60 built-in sewing stitches, including 27 stitches for sewing clothing so that you can secure and reinforce seams, prevent the fabric of the clothes from fraying, and put in invisible hems. You also have 7 different stitches for buttonholes, which can accommodate light, medium, and heavyweight fabrics. Twenty stitches are decorative, while you also get 6 heirloom stitches and 7 quilting stitches.
Think of the money you save on having to pay for alterations.
- Choosing the stitch is easy enough, because you just have to push a button and a convenient LCD screen shows what stitch is set.
- You also get to adjust the speed of the sewing, as there’s a stitch speed slide that determines how quick or slow you want to sew. There’s a start/stop button too.
- Threading is also not a problem, which is quite a relief. Those who have tried their hand at hand-stitching can rest easy with the automatic needle threader. You just touch a lever and the thread is automatically pushed through the needle. There’s also a numbered diagram conveniently printed on the CS6000i, which you can just follow to have the sewing machine threaded. There’s even a diagram showing where you should place the thread for bobbin winding, and it’s jam-resistant.
- There’s a detachable over-sized table you can attach so you can use the CS6000i to work on over-sized projects like quilts. Now you have the space you need to maneuver properly. There’s also a free arm built-in that’s ideal for sewing sleeves, cuffs, pant legs on baby clothes, and other smaller cylinder-type items.
- There’s even a built-in light that makes you see the work area more clearly. It comes in handy even in the daytime when you’re sewing on darker fabrics.
- Other accessories include 9 different feet (walking, spring action quilting, overcasting, monogramming, button fitting, buttonhole, blind stitch, zipper, and zigzag).
- You also get an accessory pouch with an eyelet punch, screwdriver, 3 bobbins, 3 spool caps, seam ripper, cleaning brush, and a needle set.
- If you’re using this machine for fashion or tailoring school, you can bring it with you wherever you go. It comes with a hard protective case, it’s small measuring 16 x 6.7 x 11.4 inches, and it only weighs 13 pounds.
So what’s the catch? Just one actually—you have to live in a country that supports 120V AC, like the good ol’ US of A. Brother does not recommend using the CS6000i with a voltage adapter.
In any case, this is another Brother CS6000i review that gives it full marks. That’s especially true now, since the price has dropped from its initial $450. Now you can get it for less than $200!
