Great product and Fast delivery! I purchased this ink toner last night at 10pm and was able to get free next day delivery. Being a pharmacy student, I run out of ink FAST since I have to print so many lecture notes and powerpoint slides to study. Anyway, I just received my ink toner from FedEx and was shocked at how fast Hp was able to pack and ship my toner. Thanks for the fast delivery service. OVerall, I've used this product for the past two years I've been in Pharmacy school and it's pretty great. It's way better than the previous hp printer I had. I am able to print thousands of documents over a semester without having to buy ink until the next semester. Plus, the printer I have can automatically print double sided so that's an added positive. Thanks!
Fast and Powerful. I purchased this machine to sew leather and pleather materials. It has the power to sew through the layers of pleather that my other machines would refuse. I also use this machine to free-motion embroider; it is so easy to lower the feed dogs. I also find that the pedal allows for better control of the speed of the machine than my commercial machine. This one's a workhorse.
Great Machine. I was looking for a machine to replace my big industrial machine without the bulk of the industrial machine & table and this fits the bill perfectly. Still has the speed and power as an industrial but not the bulk. Very nice to use and I can pick it up to move to another room if I need to. PERFECT !
Motivation Machine. This machine definitely motivates me to take quilting to the next level. Many times quilters get the top sewn together only to leave it in a stack of uncompleted projects. Not 'sew' with this machine. Now I have incentive to finish the job. Lots of space to fit lap quilts, etc. It runs like a dream. Threading gets a little getting used to, but keep going..it is worth it.
My Go-To Machine. I have six machines..including a nice Pfaff that does it all and several older machines that are just fun to use. But I have noticed since purchasing this machine, that this is the one I find myself sitting in front of..like all the time! It is a workhorse. I do all my piecing and machine quilting on it and that about sums it up. I am thinking of buying a second one because if this one goes down, I really will be lost..but my friend who also owns one says it is made of " iron " and will never go down! She's right..they are so sturdy and yet portable..a wonderful machine..hope I never have to be without it!
PQ1500S. A real workhorse of a machine. So far excellent with the exception of a couple of things: wish the bobbin would have a sensor to tell you when you are almost out, thread breakage. We will be excited to actually do a quilt with it. We have been using it to piece and it does a fantastic job. Great 1/4" foot.
Thread skipping. I really like this machine for everything but free style. Bought it 2yr ago. As another review wrote, I've try everything for skipping stitches. Dif threads. Changed needle. Moved tension a little at a time. one thing that works is put your stitch at o and don't drop the feed dogs. super slider works or put an index card over the feet. The walking foot works great for straight line quilting or ditch sewing.
PQ1500S wants to: SEW! Thoroughly enjoy sewing with this machine. I can't say enough positive. The only "personal" point would be to move the needle UP switch to the "head" of the machine for quilting frames. I would also "prevent" the machine from sewing with the foot UP - what a rat's nest maker. The problem is strictly a user's problem and I've got it bad. I wish there was a "like" machine that included zig-zag - I'd buy it immediately! Love the Brother products - QUALITY
Love my Brother PQ1500s. I am having a love affair with my PQ1500s. I have had my fair share of sewing machines and they were all nice machines, did the job, what more could I ask for. I can't say that about my PQ1500, I am so in love with that machine. It is like we are one when I use it. So, so easy to thread. Stitches and tension are always perfect. And it is so solid, when I sew on it I feel like it can handle anything I throw at it. And when I do free motion quilting, it looks like someone who knows what they are doing did the quilting. I have only had the guts to try FMQ since I got my machine last month. I am so proud of myself when I look at what I have done. This machine may only do 1 stitch, but that stitch is beautiful. I haven't used my fancy machine since I got the PQ1500s. And I don't want to either. I could sew on my 1500 forever. And this is the very first object in my life that I said if there was a fire I would run in and get it. I have never said that about anything.. That is how much I love this machine.
