About this deal

This entry level sewing machine has 22 stitch patterns plus a 4-step button hole and comes with standard accessories.

I watched the DVD first and found it very easy to set up, the loading of the bobbin was very easy and I got it to work. Due to you not being able to drop the feed dogs on the Brother AE1700 sewing machine you can’t do free motion sewing.Also comes with accessories including Zigzag foot, buttonhole foot, zipper foot, button sewing foot, darning plate, set of needles, spare bobbins, instruction guide and instructional DVD. For a longer service life: • When storing this machine, avoid direct sunlight and high humidity locations. The Brother AE1700 comes with an instructional DVD that shows all aspects of the machine - perfect if you're a beginner.

Do not use the machine near a heat source, such as a stove or iron; otherwise, the machine, power cord or garment being sewn may ignite, resulting in re or an electric shock. Stabilizer material or paper The main parts a Bobbin winder This winds the thread onto the bobbin for use as the lower thread. It has a drop in bobbin, and an automatic bobbin winder, so you no longer need to wind your bobbins manually. The only thing I did find was the machine is much lighter to use than my old one, so I had to make sure I kept the material more stable. She has also guided me in the best threads and fabrics to use to get the best from this older machine.

I would just like to say here, that I am only regarding the ‘standard’ size sewing machines and NOT the ‘Mini’ sewing machines. Pick any product and you can guarantee there’s going to be a huge variety of retailers, brands and product types to choose from.

However if you can up your budget just a little, you would have a much bigger selection of ‘Branded’ cheap sewing machines to choose from. The plastic bag that this machine was supplied in should be kept out of the reach of children or disposed of. We’ve got compact mini sewing machines for crafters who are on the go, beginner sewing machines to help you get started and technical computerised sewing machines for more experienced sewers. I have been using this make of machine for the last nine years and the one I have (although a little rattly), is still going strong. The only thing I've found a bit temperamental is the picking your stitch wheel, sometimes it doesn't really align with the stitch you think you have but I just a practice on a scrap bit first and it's fine.

The AE1700 has a maximum sewing speed of 850 stitches per minute, enabling you to complete your projects in a timely manner. Do not push or pull the fabric when sewing, and follow careful instruction when freehand stitching so that you do not deect the needle and cause it to break.

Whether it’s feedback on how we can improve this review, or feedback on Brother AE1700 Manual Stitch Sewing Machine itself, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Over the years in my trade, I have had the unfortunate pleasure of working with/on several miscellaneous named machines. These are more geared towards making clothes, which is why I recommend this machine as a good choice for beginners and any budding fashionistas out there.However, if the ‘cheap sewing machine’ I’m looking at has a brand name I’ve never heard of, I wouldn’t waste any more time on it.
