Owner Reviews & Criticism
I purchased the Brother JX2517 in-store today. I took it home and it already had the bottom bobbin wound and in place, and a standard size needle 14 in place. It was very easy to operate and sewed a very good stitch. I like the fact that it is a lightweight machine, yet it can handle heavy fabrics. It has a double lift on the needle presser foot bar for thick materials. I was surprised that it had "preset stitches". So, there is no fiddling with length or width dials. It has 3 very nice satin stitches and something called Double Action Stitches 16, 17 for joining two pieces of fabric like in patchwork quilting. It has a left needle position stitch and also comes with a button hole making foot and button foot, and zipper foot. This will be the machine I will take to quilting class. The sewing area seems extra large, yet it also has a free arm for hemming. I like The Brother Sewing machines and this one is one of the prettiest and easiest machines I've seen.
