Brother’s LB-6800PRW for Project Runway is recommended for seamstresses who are after a model with beginner-level embroidery features. The machine offers a variety of embroidery-related project features from applique patches down to monogramming, and it can also accommodate designs up to 4-inch by 4-inch in size.
It will easily accommodate online designs with a .PES and .DST formats, thus making your work easier, faster, and more convenient.
It also includes basic stitches meant to achieve mending, craft and heirloom stitching, sewing, and quilting jobs. In terms of speed and quality of the stitching, it performed outstandingly, as expected from a Brother product.
It is actually a simple and straightforward machine that any beginner can handle, and if you want more help, you can refer to its accompanying reference guide. Thus, if you have a small background in sewing, you will be able to handle this machine.
There are plenty of designs available online, and the unit takes advantage of this fact. You can gain easy access to these designs because of the unit’s computer connectivity, and download them straight to your computer. It can decipher .DST and .PES formats to let you acquire more designs.
This is also a versatile machine since you can embroider and sew. As a sewing machine, it did its job decently; it provided better fabric control, a good number of stitch styles, plus its speed controls were quite good as well.
The presser foot offered easier sewing procedures on tight spots, so this is a welcome feature. Furthermore, you can also adjust the width and length of your stitches.
The automated thread cutting function is a helpful feature which will keep your workspace organized. Just press on the Scissors button and the unit will cut the thread.
Its USB connectivity is capable of accommodating both PC and Mac as well. As for its embroidery capabilities, it is fast and automatic. The unit is perfectly capable of sewing the design by itself and all users have to do is replace thread colors if needed because the unit can only accommodate a single spool.
If you want bigger designs than what the unit is capable of accommodating, this model is not for you. In addition, it is not capable of doing serging procedures.
The LB6800PRW from Brother is a great pick. The only problem I have with it is that it can’t tackle serging, but overall this is an excellent Brother model.
The price is also something that I can heartily recommend as well. Budget-conscious folks should check this one out if they want a neat investment. Likewise, it comes with a rolling bag so you can take it anywhere with you.
