Last year about this time -

I did a REVIEW on my new sewing machine - HERE -

Brother SQ9050 - Computerized Sewing and Quilting Machine -

Made by Brother - here -
Made in China

I named her SuzieQ -

And now that I have had her for about a year -

I thought that it was time for an update - ;))

Last year I said -

Summary -

I have only had this machine for a very short time -
And I have just scratched the surface in terms of what she can do -
And I have some more testing/playing to do yet -

And some reviews have said that she develops tension problems about six months down the road - so we’ll have to wait and see about that -

But -

From what I have seen/done so far -

What it can do -

And - especially - for the PRICE -

I think that it’s quite a cool little sewing machine!! - ;))

Would I recommend this sewing machine?


Since then -

I have made two Edit Updates -

Both related to tension issues -

EDIT UPDATE - 8/29/13 -
As I told Miau in the comments below - HERE -

YES - she still does a good job!! - ;)) I use her mostly to do my piecing - and use Method #2 described above - Stitch #43 with the zig-zag presser foot "J" - and my stitch guide. Her tension messed up on me ONCE - I simply turned her OFF for a second - then turned her back on - sort of like re-booting your computer. When I turned her back on - all of the tension settings had re-set to the defaults - and she was fine - ;)) Would I still recommend this machine? - YES!! - ;))

EDIT UPDATE - 11/6/13 -
Today I was having some tension issues - loops were showing on the back of the fabric. I turned her off - re-threaded both the top thread and the bobbin - turned her back on - and she was back to normal - ;))
So -

Yes - I had tension issues on occasion -

But the solution was simple -

Turn her off for a second -

Re-thread her -

Top AND bottom -

Turn her back on -

And she was good to go - ;))

Would I STILL recommend this sewing machine?


Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I have had a couple Brother machines and have always been happy with them. Gave Kari my little Brother and still kicking myself for it :-)

If you are looking to replace the machine that you gave Kari - I would definitely recommend this one. It was my first Brother sewing machine - and I have been happy with it so far - so it will not be my last - ;))
