Brother FS130QC 130 Stitch Computerised Sewing Machine with Built-in Sewing Font, Wide Table and 3 Year Warranty

303227
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 314 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my Brother Fs130qc Love this machine. Took a few days to get use to the needle threader but I was use to a cartridge loading machine which also is a brother and I bought that from ideal world quite a few years ago a CS8080. Love using the alphabet and I'm personal using everything. I have made a lap quilt with family and loved ones names on and a bed runner matching my cushions in the bedroom. I highly recommend this machine 22 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A brilliant machine I bought this machine in March to replace my old 25 year old sewing machine. My previous machine was one of the first computerised machines around and back then cost over £500. So the value alone is worth buying, especially at half price. I use this machine every weekend and have sewn everything from faux leather to organza on it. I would recommend this machine to anyone looking to up grade or starting from scratch. It's a great companion to my overlocker and embroidery machines and i couldn't be without it. 20 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love love! I have 5 machines but this machine is out all the time. Had it over a month now and I have pretty much done all my Christmas projects. Great for the beginner and experienced sew'er alike. If you are a beginner you will grow with this machine and soon be an experienced sew'er. Don't delay buy it straight away. 20 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely brilliant This machine is marvellous. I cannot praise it enough, I have had a brother machine for nearly 20yrs which still works and when I saw this machine on Create and craft and watched the lovely Sarah demonstrate it I had to have it.I have been thinking about upgrading for a long time and am so thrilled I chose this one I must admit I have not yet used all the things /tasks it can due to work and time but everything I have done so far has been successful It is so easy to use You just cannot go wrong. I would certainly recommend this machine to anyone who is thinking of buying a new machine BUY IT 16 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product didn't expect anything else from Brother, good price Love the machine, its so light to carry just what I needed for taking to my quilting classes 16 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely machine very light, ideal for taking to sewing club At last I have got 2 of my grand children interested in sewing after many years of trying and it is all thanks to this machine. It is very easy to use but because it is computerised they were keen to have a go. My 16yr old, who has never used a sewing machine before made a pencil case which entailed putting in a zip, sewing in a lining and top stitching, which she accomplished excellently. My 9 year old wanted to make a picture so she drew a sunflower cut it out and cut out material then using the flower picture for a template she made it into an applique picture. As she is too small to reach the foot pedal she used the machine set to slow with out the pedal, under supervision of course, she even managed to sew circle. They are both now eager to start new projects. I think this proves the machine is not only easy to use but is also a pleasure to use. Over the three weeks I have had the machine it has been in constant use I have tried out all the functions and stitches and I am impressed. It is a very useful machine because it is so light and a lot smaller than my other computerised machines it is extremely convenient to use because there is no effort in getting it out to use for the small jobs I would usually hand sew because getting out the larger machine was so much hassle. It is my 'midget gem' wish I had bought it sooner 08 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant. Love it. Excellent value. Lightweight. Easy to set up. Excellent instruction book and DVD. Lots of features and so many stitches! I've been sewing for over 40 years on and off. This excellent machine has renewed my enthusiasm for sewing. 08 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it.... Lovely easy machine to work with - useful manual and DVD - love the extra table extension - so useful - still haven't mastered the needle threader but I won't let it beat me. It makes my quilting so much easier to do and the finish is now quite professional 06 September 2016

Answer: 
You can use either method. I have a bad back and hours sewing can aggrevate it so changing from foot pedal to using the start/stop button combined with the speed slider really helps me be able to finish a project. Good Luck!

This machine comes with both. I find this function really useful as I have a bad back and the start/stop and speed control means I can sew long straight runs with ease.

Answer: 
It comes with a hard cover and although this is meant to be a positive (I suppose for transporting it that is true) I am going to make a padded fabric cover as the hard cover is bulky to put on/off and doesnt fit at all with the table on and sits 'wonky'. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
I haven't weighed it but I can lift this machine using my right hand underneath the top part. I was very relieved to be able to lift this machine so easily as my old machine, a New Home 577, is cast metal and weighs a ton and I had problems putting it away in it's storage table. I don't think you will have any problems transporting this machine it is so light.
