You won’t get any problem at the time to make the quilting on medium and small quilting projects at all.

  1. Hi, I can see that this machine is one that you have great faith in. From your description it looks very easy to use which would be a plus for me as I am not really much of a machinist. I know that the brand is a reliable and trustworthy company that has been established for a long time. I was wondering if there was any form of automation in this model as I like to use sewing machines for small embroidery jobs. Or do I need to go further up the range. Also when you refer to the throat being small, in which way is it small as I am not totally sure what the throat of a sewing machine is. I don’t think that the noise element would be to much of a problem for me as it would be used in a semi work environment.  

    • Hi Mark,

      I have the previous sewing machine of the Brother XR3774 for almost 8 years now and I can tell you that I’m happy with it, I do almost all my sewing and quilting projects on it.

      The problem with this machine is for people who like to sew big projects as full size quilts, when working on the free motion quilting, you need to roll up the quilt to start quilting in the center of the quilt, you can get the idea of a King Size quilt will need a bigger machine with a larger throat to fit the rolled quilt on it so you can work on the quilting with ease.

      Some brands know about this problem and they have a bigger throat sewing machine but the price is higher.

      For the brand quality and the quality of this sewing and quilting machine this is the best sewing machine I will recommend for a beginner or for someone who is on a budget.
