“Works fine but a little bit fussy”

Written on: 19/09/2013

This machine is easy to thread and use, however I've found it to be quite fussy. With every change of fabric, you spend a lot of time fiddling around with the tension, trying different stitches, testing and re-testing just to get a decent straight stitch. It takes more time to fiddle around with it than to actually sew a seam. I used to own a Janome My style and it would sew just about anything perfectly with little adjustment. Sadly I had to sell it because I moved overseas. I am… Read Full Review

I bought this used, off Craigslist, but it was almost new, she had not enjoyed sewing. I threaded it easily without reading the manual, and stitched samples of the many different stitches. All turned out nicely, and this is my fifth sewing machine (I am a professional designer and seamstress) on hand, and I got it for the price $40 and the ease of carrying around (my others are heavy, metal, professional models). Nice for beginner, or casual sewing. No leather, plastic, etc. Just nice soft… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/05/2008

The Brother LS-1520 is a really nice machine for the price. The stitch quality is good, and the machine is simple and easy-to-use. I have been able to teach several people how to sew on this machine. More importantly, it has been able to hold up to the rigors of costuming and student use for several years!… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2008

My mother bought this Brother sewing machine for me 6 years ago while I was still in high school when I was a beginner. I generally like my machine. I have since lost the small box of attachments and parts that came with the machine. I am now searching ALL OVER the internet to find compatible parts. I recommend this model for beginners but do not advise for a seasoned sewer… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/12/2007

Only set the machine up to try it but was very disappointed with the quality of the stitches and overall quality, flimsy, too much plastic. The manufacturers seem concerned only with appearances not practicality. Built to a low price and is reflected in performance. Our old machine (several years old) stopped working due to the only plastic(nylon?) gear breaking.Have since found out from Brother that all their domestic sewing machines are made with plastic/nylon gears. You would not know this… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2004 by mellymel (1 review written)

The Brother LS-1520 was the first machine I had used since I was about 10 years old using my mom's extremely old cabinet machine. I basically had to relearn everything all over with this machine, but the instructions and ease of use helped my first garment to come out beautifully! It seems to suit all of this costumer's needs. My only problem is that it is difficult to find feet and other accesories for it. This is a wonderful machine to start out on. Inexpensive and very versitle… Read Full Review

Do you knew how to sew before buying it?
<br/>Those problems happen if the machine is broken or not used properly.
