What I think:
This is one of my personal machines and it has so many amazing features. The fabulously wide throat makes bulky projects like bag making, or Jeans making a lot easier. It threads at the touch of a button! Has the knee lift function, and with a simple bit of programming – it will secure your stitches, cut the thread and lift the presser foot. And if you’re a quilter, Sew StraightTM Laser Vision Guide makes things like 1/2 square triangles a breeze – no more marking!
And this might seem a simple thing – but it has a clock. You know how sewing has it’s own time zone and you’ll sometimes be *ahem* late for an appointment because you didn’t realise the time – this little feature is a godsend.
What Brother say:
The VQ3000 is Brother’s most advanced home-based quilting and sewing machine. It offers 56 square inches of workspace and a huge throat width (29cm needle to arm).
The VQ3000 features our Muvit Digital Dual Feed; an accessory foot that makes it incredibly easy to sew precise, uniform stitches on a range of fabrics like leather, faux fur and silk.
Do you want a laser pen, digital dual feed and sew-straight laser vision guide? The VQ3000 has them. You’ll also get ultra-bright feature lighting, 561 stitches, and spectacular speed control, from very slow to 1050 stitches per minute.
