Brother XL2610 Sewing Machine reviews : Pros
Easy portability and compact size are the two basic benefits that you are getting with Brother XL2610 sewing machine. Now let us mention and give a bit of explanation of a few more benefits of this machine.
No complexity at all
First of all, let us tell you that this machine is built for children, that is 7-8 years old. So, there is no scope of fitting any complexity in this machine. There is a range of built-in stitches, which neither frustrates or confuses, nor limits the creativity.
The company has provided with the necessary features only, which a kid might need while working on a sewing project. If abundant features were provided, then there would have been complexity. In short, simple is the best, that is what the company has shown us by making this machine.
When someone pays more for buying a sewing machine, then the expectations from it also go high. more features, more functions, etc. are demanded. Now, when we are talking about the basic sewing machine, that is built just to meet the needs of the kids, then it was needed that fewer features are there, to avoid confusion.
So, the company attached a very pocket-friendly price tag to it. So, if you find a thing missing or two, you simply accept it, as you have no spent a bomb on it, and it is returning more than your payment.
Durable and reliable
When you talk about the cheap sewing machines, you surely worry about the fact that how long is the sewing machine going to serve you. Usually, these cheap machines are not that durable.
If you have brought a Brother XL2610 home, then you don't need to worry about the durability at all. The machine is built very well and is fit enough to serve you for at least 15 years as per our expectation and calculation.
Good variety of stitches
If you find 25 built-in stitches and 59 stitch functions in a beginners sewing machine, then that is a very healthy range. Your kid is not going to be bored at all. Not only the kid, but even you can do some bedroom decoration by utilizing these stitches. Stitch selection is also very easy. A dial is provided for the same purpose.
Capable of sewing multi-layer fabrics
Although you are not supposed to use the thicker size fabrics on this particular sewing machine, we tried this machine with five layers of denim. Guess what; it perfectly did the job! Yes, you can sew multi-layers on it, and that is one of the most prominent advantages.
Easily understandable guiding manual
The machine is itself so easy that we do not think that you are going to feel the need of rolling your gaze over the guiding manual either.
But still, if you are not that sure with any of the function or feature of Brother XL2610 sewing machine, then you can find every single solution in the guiding manual, which is written exceptionally well. Everything is defined in a very clear and easily understandable manner.
25 years limited warranty
Brother believes in equality. So, they provide you with the same warranty, no matter you buy a $2,000 machine, or just a simple one like XL2610 model. The terms and conditions of the warranty will be the same. Just for knowledge, do not think that your whole machine is warranted for 25 years.
Various parts of the machine have different warranty periods. Yes, the warranty terms and conditions are same, but you definitely need to read them at least one. You can do that by visiting the company's website.
Brother XL2610 Sewing Machine reviews : Cons
With that much less amount, you definitely cannot complain that this feature is missing, or that feature is missing. We have already tested it and found that it is providing you with all kinds of basic features. Now, let us talk about the authentic issue with this machine.
High noise issue
This machine is not that strong and sturdy to work for a very long time. This machine is meant to fulfill your kid's hobby. If you start pushing loads of works on this machine, it is going to make high noise.
When we tested it, we found that the noise level is a bit higher in comparison to other beginner sewing machines available in the market. But the noise is acceptable, and it is not going to trouble you much.
But as we said, once you start imposing workload, then you will suffer from the noise for sure.
Fabric feeding issue
It was mentioned there in the public reviews that this machine is that very good with the reverse function. The issue is that the reverse button is unable to feed the fabrics straight and smoothly. Well, while we tested it, we didn't come across such an issue. But is it is mentioned in the complaint section, then we cannot ignore it either.
So, if you face such kind of issue, then carry this machine to some sewing machine repair expert for proper checking and curing. We are sure that there will be minor problems, which are going to be easily solved.
Unable to sew leather
Nowadays, buyers do look for leather sewing capabilities when they decide to buy a beginners sewing machine. Many basic sewing machines of this company do have leather swing capabilities, but not this model.
We tested it with leather of three different thicknesses. The thickest one was simply not sewn! While the thinnest and mid-thick pieces were sewn, but the stitch quality wasn't that good. Besides that, the machine struggled to catch the speed while dealing with the mid-thick leather piece.
So, we do not recommend you to use leather or any such thick material on Brother XL2610.
Now, the image must have been much clear for you after reading the whole review. This machine is only for learners, and day to day household tasks. This machine has got certain limits, and inside those limits, it is a fantastic one. We highly recommend you to buy Brother XL2610 free arm sewing machine.
