Brother CS6000i. Why do I think this is a great starter machine? Simple, because I do! The number of stitches, the quality of the stitches, the basic construction, the decades of proven engineering. Here is the real simple truth: I wanted a “starter/learning” machine for my granddaughter. I bought the “Hello Kitty” from Janome. The machine is disposable (which is okay, it’s a kid’s machine). But the foot control did not match the motor. It could not be controlled at a level a 9 or 10 year old child can manage. Enter this machine. First, although we missed a lot of it, we watched the computer generation take control of our lives. (That’s how you got here :->). So giving a child a computer controlled machine makes sense. The number of stitches and the ease of control and quality of the machine… no brainer. If you are looking for a starter machine, start here!
