About this deal

The machine includes several accessories, including a needle set, bobbins, and a seam ripper, giving users everything they need to perform basic sewing tasks. The Brother LS14s comes with with a clear zip foot (makes it nice and easy to see what’s going on under the foot as you insert a zip) and a buttonhole foot. The machine’s built in light is quite dim, I tested the machine during the daytime with my blinds closed to get an idea of the light quality. A screwdriver is also needed to remove the presser foot, whereas some machines come with a quick release button to swap the feet over – have a look for machine with this feature if you think fiddly screws might be an issue for you.

Standard or full-size machines are the most versatile machine size as they work for a range of sewing applications. Whether you’re taking up trousers, adding a buttonhole or repairing a seam, the L14S makes every day sewing tasks simple to complete. Expand the work area of your sewing machine with an easy to attach, extra wide extension table that is perfect for larger sewing projects. There’s nothing wrong with the blind hem stitch itself, but in practice, it’s really hard to use without a blind hem foot. Overall, this is my favorite machine if you’re on a tight budget, but it’s not my favorite one for beginners who love sewing (go here to see my best sewing machine for beginners review).The manual is quite brief, however there are good basic instructions for the features of the machine as well as an instructional DVD. We class the Brother LS14 as “Very Basic“, meaning that this machine has features that are suitable for a sewer working at a Very Basic skill level. Most manufacturers do not recommend using adaptors to convert the voltage of your machine for safety reasons. This is an excellent option for new sewers or anyone who wants a second sewing machine to take to a class or club.

The machine has a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches per minute, making it efficient and time-saving. It also comes with a free arm, enabling users to sew cuffs, sleeves, and other circular items with ease.

Accessories included: zig-zag foot, buttonhole foot, zipper foot, Needle Set, Bobbins X4 one in machine oval screw driver, and foot controller. In a matching thread you wouldn’t notice this, but if you use a contrasting thread it would look messy. The machine has a small harp space (the central gap) so isn’t great for larger projects such as quilts or bulky clothing, but fine for alterations, making lighter weight garments and small-medium sized homewares. The LS14 sewing machine features 14 stitches including three embroidery stitches and a 4-step buttonhole. The top of the machine also has clear illustrations showing how to thread the machine and wind the bobbin.

It pulls the fabric into a tunnel with the standard tension of 4, so more experimenting is needed with that.

Cuffs and narrow trouser legs most likely wouldn’t fit around the smaller arm unless their circumference is larger than 32cm.
