Great work-horse

By: Sandra on 3 August 2021
I purchased the Brother PQ1500SL to be my general workhorse for alterations, curtain making and quilting type jobs. I do not have the room for a free standing industrial machine, so this was a very good option. I am delighted in the function of the machine and the ease of use. Especially the ease of bobbin loading and the thread cutting. This machine would suit the sewer who has a lot of straight stitching. Highly recommended.

I needed a machine that would do heavier work and the PQ1500SL certainly came to the party. It is a pleasure as well as being very easy to use.
