Speed and Capacity
With a capacity to sew at a rate of 850 spm, this heavy-duty machine runs at a speed that’s perfect especially for experienced and highly skilled sewers who often and regularly work on large-scale sewing projects. If you’re a novice or an average user or you’re working on a smaller project, you may adjust the speed and increase or decrease it according to your need and skill.
Those who are new to sewing can benefit largely from this sewing machine’s automatic features, which they can easily adjust to suit their projects. There’s no need to manually thread the needle, wind the bobbin or cut the thread as the machine can automatically do such tasks and more.
Depending on your need and preference, you may opt to either use the machine’s automatic stitch settings or manually set and customize the length and width of your stitches for a particular sewing project. The maximum stitch dimensions of Brother’s sewing machine is 7 x 5 mm (W x L).
Design and Interface
One great thing about this heavy-duty sewing machine is it’s very lighweight and portable so you won’t have a hard time moving it from one place to another. It weighs around 13 lbs and its 6.5-inch throat makes it easy for users to do large-scale quilting projects.
The machine also comes with a digital LCD screen that shows the stitch number as well as the pattern. The screen also shows references for possible sources or causes of machine error or malfunction. You may also opt to use the foot pedal or control the machine by simply pressing a button. Whether you go for the pedal or the button, both options allow users to adjust the machine’s speed setting according to their preference.
Apart from the automatic features, the CS6000i sewing machine also comes with standard features such as a built-in light that so users can clearly see what they’re working on. There’s also a detachable extension table, which you can use when you’re working with huge and heavy textiles or fabrics. You can also change or adjust the feed dog’s position so you can sew more comfortably and with no hindrances.
It also comes with cleaning tools, a set of needles and screwdrivers.
