Brother XL2600i Sewing Machine Review

Over my years in the industry, I have come across many products.  The market is flooded with new products all the time and choosing the right ones becomes rather difficult.  Most of the time, the difficulty is caused simply by a lack of information.

I hope this site will shed some light, provide useful information, and help you decide whether a certain product meets your needs or not.

What makes computerized embroidery sewing machines so welcoming to crafting and sewing is the fact they are “all in one” machines.  They can be used for embroidering, quilting, general sewing, and so much more.

Those machines are usually equipped with an LCD touch screen, a user-friendly interface, a USB connection, a built-in editing program, embroidery software, and file storage capability.  Some machines are able to save their recent operations.
