Brother has launched a new sewing machine just in time to create gorgeous summer fashions. Known for great features, this beginner friendly machine is amazing.

Look out, there’s a new kid in town, the Brother CS7000i Sewing Machine. Sewing Machines Plus carries them at a decent price. This is the next version of affordable beginner and intermediate sewing machines from Brother. A slight bump up from it’s little brother (CS6000i), it boasts 70 built in stitches; an increase of 10 new stitches and includes a 1/4″ piecing foot has been added to the feet included.
This is a great machine for beginner and intermediate sewists. I have the Brother CS6000i which is still a great machine. You will save about $10 on this one, but I’ll guess the price difference will increase as times goes on.
Let’s Talk Buttonholes
Both machines offer 7 built in buttonholes, which is an amazing feature and why I bought the machine. With the older style machines, you need to manually move the dials to create a button hole. With the CS Series machines, you just pop the button in the buttonhole foot, change the settings once, and press go! It is worth the price of the machine to have perfect buttonholes.
Other Great Features
Automatic down needle position – need I say more? When you take your foot off the gas or stop the machine, the needle automatically sinks into the fabric. Genius, right! You never lose your stitching line and your sewing stays secure in your machine. One of my most favorite features.
Another great feature is the speed control. You have three different speed options. Perfect for timid beginners to get a feel for the machine and sewing techniques. The speed control is also great for when you are sewing tricky bits.
All Wrapped Up
If you want to get back into sewing, you are using your mom’s sewing machine, or your grandmother’s straight stitch (Yikes!) both of these machines will help you create garments that look like they came off the rack at Nordstroms. I hope you consider the Brother CS7000i Sewing Machine for your machine upgrade.
