Sewing machines have been around since 1790, invented by the Englishman, Thomas Saint. He was probably considered a saint to all the people that hand sew fabric. The invention greatly propelled the efficiency and productivity of the clothing industry which means more job opportunities. Hurray for that.
Even people now, who aren’t related to the clothing industry start getting their hands on sewing machines. Be it for home purposes or hobby (yes, some people sew for a hobby) or even to start a small livelihood. Choosing the perfect machine for you might be a bit of a task. There are a few things to consider, performance, weight, price and a few more; we’ll stitch those in probably later. Some people prefer the heavy, durable yet expensive ones since they will last for longer, others prefer the lightweight Brother JX2517, a lot cheaper compared to its other counterparts in the market.
More and more people are currently favouring this machine compared to its other predecessors since it is lightweight and inexpensive. Available for purchasing online and offline for as low as below $90.00, no wonder why people tend to prefer it. It also weighs approximately 12lbs so you can carry it wherever you go, if you find the need to. Perfect for beginners who don’t want to drop serious bucks and for those who like to carry their sewing machine around.
It’s good to have a Brother.
With all the perfect ratings given to it, it’s almost hard to look away at its success much like it is hard to look away from that mouth-watering medium rare steak cooked to perfection. It is hard to deny that it is a good score for beginners and for home use if you need to do a few repairs. Although this machine isn’t as fully loaded as its top-of-the-line counterparts, it does come with good features. Like all things though, they do come with pros and cons. Since it is mainly designed for beginners and for recreational users as well, it cannot probably handle more rigorous stitching demands unlike its more professional counterparts.
Mainly designed as an entry level sewing machine, the Brother JX2517 does its job pretty well for its price tag. If you are a beginner that wants to learn how to sew or you want to go out of town and bring your sewing machine with you, this product is most likely your go to machine. Cheap, lightweight, and does its job.
