very light weight, sometimes to light as it moves when deling with lge bulky items. I still have 5 years to go on the guarentee, Coopers will not except machine back to repair as i do not have original box. I have also been told i need to pay £14 for the machine to be taken away. Staff on the phone not helpful and I felt that they were putting every obstical in my way not to except the machine back. The only party the guarentee protects is Coopers and not the customer. I do not have... (read more)

Regret buying machine. Over Priced and the after sales service from Coopers is not good. I still have 4 years to run on my guarentee and yet, because I do not have the original box it came in, Coopers will not take it away for repair, even if I did still have the box, it will cost me £14 to have it taken away! Some guarentee! The person on the phone was less than friendly and I felt that they could not wait to find something to enable them to refuse to take machine and sort the problem... (read more)

I bought my 8080 from create and craft so couldn't try before buying. However, on receipt of the machine found it easy to set up and use. It sews well and is quiet and doesn't need the foot pedal to control your sewing. love the self threading and thread cartridge-main reason for purchase! saying this tho, I do find I have to stoop over it to sew unless I have it arm's length away which causes shoulder and back ache. (i'm 5'8). the other negative I have to say is that more feet in the box... (read more)

we have just bought this m/c we are in our 80`s if you cannot use it get help,my wife is an experienced machinist of many years,thinks it wonderful,we had teething problems,but using a bit of commonsence does wonders,its the old story of practice making perfect.
It also helps if you can use your head at the same time as using your fingers. I like this brother CS 8080.
we saw the m/c on computer and thought being light in weight,made it easier to carry from where it is kept,and to lift onto... (read more)

Love this machine - light, easy to use and really good results. Having being used to manual threading it took a few attempts to get automatic threading to work but now all is great. If you have problems, check the thread is running freely. Love the computerised stitches, wish I had gone for even more embroidery stitches. (read more)

I was very dissapointed with this Brother Innov-is 8080 and never managed to use it for anything as it continually jams.
The self threader didnt work either,
A very expensive machine, which didnt live up to the hype I heard of (read more)

The Brother Innov-is 8080 is easy to use, my 13 year daughter came home from school and starting sewing on the machine. I had my last machine for year and hardly used it, it was easier to sew my trousers by hand then set it up and the tension was never right. On the brother 8080 the tension is set I have not had to touch it , the auto thread makes it easy to change cottons quickly. the machine is quiet. comes with a number of accessories allowing you to do different stitches, the machine as...

Would have loved to have got on with this Brother Innov-is 8080 sewing machine,wide variety of embroidery stitches, no need to use the foot pedal,quite when running as it should,adjustable speed control,but sadly I didn't. ,just couldn't get the tension correct either,was advertised as pre-set and would adjust itself according to what fabric,stitch etc you were using ,I've been sewing for a long time but just couldn't get on with this machine,kept jamming for no reason,I read and re-read...
