Brother SE425, $215
brother barb
This is a small lightweight machine (great for sewing retreats and classes).
More on the machine from this website:
Brother International – Home Sewing Machine and Embroidery Machine SE425
Comes with 2 additional feet (fringe and I can’t remember the other one), besides the normal accessories. No USB cable though.
I did have to take it to Willett’s Sew and Vac in McKinney to repair the thread cutter. It works beautifully now. I used to keep it at my desk and sew during lunch.
This is nearly identical to the Baby Lock Sofia 2. The stickers are different. I have one of those too, but hubby gave that to me as a gift. I’m not selling it as it is my lightweight travel machine. Though, I do like that the Brother machine has all the stitches laid out on the front cover.
