This is the post that never ends.  It goes on and on my friends…. lol  That’s the song that came to mind as I started editing pictures for this fabulous giveaway from Brother and my tutorial for “twirly” skirts and their matching flower hair clips.  After whittling it down to 42 pictures and still having a couple more to edit, I decided that I was definitely going to need to do a rewrite and split this over a post or two or three.  Today, I’m just going to introduce you to my new Brother CS6000i and launch the giveaway.  Thursday or Friday, I should be able to have the “Twirly” Skirts tutorial done.

There’s no describing the happy dance that took place when the Brother CS6000i arrived on my front steps.  (No neighbors were frightened or scandalized in the performing of said dance.)  I’ve actually been using a Brother sewing machine for years.  This upgrade to a computerized machine has me inspired to take my sewing skills out of what I like to call the “utilitarian” range and really save money and get creative with some household decorating and new clothes.  (I’m making myself the cutest new top, right now.  Can’t wait to show you!)  I have a LOT of plans for new curtains, as well as bed and kitchen linens, for this spring.  I’m also going to try my hand at making Roman shades.  I feel so much more confident tackling these bigger projects with my new machine.  The range of features allows me so many more possibilities!

When I unpacked the box, I did a quick inventory of everything that’s included.  It was sort of like Christmas all over, again!

Brother cs6000i

There was the machine, of course.

 

sewing machine attachments

Plus tons of attachments and accessories! It came with a hard case, spring action quilting foot, a walking foot and a quilt guide for the foot holder! Also, look at that wide table attachment that can expand my working surface area for bigger projects, like quilts.

The machine has a built-in free arm, so it’s easy to sew sleeves and cuffs.  It’s simple to set it up by removing the flatbed attachment, which has a great storage compartment inside.  When I opened it, I found this vinyl bag with more accessories!

sewing machine compartments

Removing the flatbed attachment is simple and it's designed to store the vinyl bag all the cool accessories.

 

accessories

All the accessories and presser feet that come with the cs6000i! a buttonhole foot, an overcast foot, a monogramming foot, a zipper foot, a blind stitch foot, a button fitting tool, extra bobbin, an eyelet punch, a seam ripper, cleaning brush and screwdriver, as well as an extra spool pin, sewing machine needle set and a twin needle!

 

When you sew, do you find you are always reaching for your scissors to snip a piece of thread, but your scissors are on the ironing board or the cutting table or wherever the last place you used them is?  One of the things I love about the Brother CS6000i is something I wasn’t even aware it had.  There are cutting blades embedded safely throughout multiple areas of the machine!  Of course, there is the standard cutter mounted on the left side of the machine, but there are others, too.

sewing machine blades

The bobbin winder has two blades for cutting thread.

 

bobbin case

There is a cutting blade at the base of that upside-down U, next to the bobbin case. It's designed to, and perfect for, snipping off the excess bobbin thread when you are threading the machine.

 

I love the drop-in bobbin case and the fact that there is an automatic needle threader, which has really become an issue for these over-forty eyes.  Threading this machine is a cinch and no magnifying glass is required!  :)   There are so many things I love about this machine, it will take many posts and demonstrations to share them all with you, but let me give you a short list of some of the best:

  1. There are 60, pre-programmed stitches, available at the touch of a button!  Everything from stretch stitches and smocking, to applique, decorative embroidery and quilting stitches.  There are TWO different overlock stitches which I have been using with great excitement!  All my seam finishes make my projects look like they came off the rack at the store, now!

    stitch selector

    So many choices! I'm incredibly excited!

  2. The overlock presser foot!  I mentioned, above, that I have been putting a professional polish on my seam finishes and using the overlock stitch options on the CS6000i.  This is simple and possible because an overlock presser foot comes as part of the standard equipment with this machine!
    overlock

    This is the specialty presser foot (overlock foot) that makes those seam finishes a cinch! The one-touch presser foot release makes changing out the feet quick & simple.

    overlocked seam

    See how pretty and clean the overlock finished seams are? Yay!

  3. Low, medium and high speed slide lever!  Adjust your machine’s speed according to the project and the seamstress.  I am so excited that my beginning 4-H sewers will be able to work at low until their confidence and skill builds.  I also like that I can adjust this to better fit what I’m sewing.  No more accidentally sending the motor racing on small, tedious projects where I need to creep along at a snail’s pace.  But, when I am sewing curtains or bed linens with lots of long, straight seams, I can slide the speed to high and move along at a remarkable pace.  Whatever speed you select is the top speed for the machine, no matter how far the foot controller is depressed.  Genius!

    speed slider

    The slidebar allows me to control the machine's top speed. I love that selecting stitches is as simple as using the up and down buttons to bring the correct stitch number up on the computerized digital display screen. Reversing to backstitch a seam is so much easier when all I have to do is depress a button, instead of holding a lever down. Love! Love! Love!

  4. The machine has a special zipper foot and zipper stitch.  Putting in zippers has not been one of my favorite things or strongest skills and this will make it so much easier.  Incidentally, that brings me to another thing I love about the CS6000i.
  5. I don’t just have to just figure it out on my own, when there is an accessory or process I am not familiar with or confident about.  The manual included with the machine is detailed, clear and full of pictures.  It gives brief, precise commands that a busy mom can truly appreciate.  Attach zigzag foot ‘J’.  Select stitch #3.  Lower the presser foot.  Sew slowly without stretching the fabric.  etc., etc.
  6. The CS6000i sewing machine has a 25 YEAR limited parts warranty!!!!
  7. The machine is lightweight and incredibly easy to transport wherever I need to use it.
  8. It’s a powerhouse of features at an affordable price whether you’re a beginner, a medium-skilled seamstress, like me, or a pro!  Brother’s MSRP is $349 and it’s worth every penny, but for all you budget-conscious seamstresses, I know you’ll love that Amazon has this beauty on sale for only $159.99 and FREE shipping!  It will be one of your best frugal investments!

Most of what I love about this very modern, computerized and super versatile machine is going to be so much easier to just SHOW you.  There will be several tutorials over the next days and weeks that will highlight and show you how to use some of the awesome features and accessories.  The first ones will be for these adorable “twirly” skirts, I made for our granddaughters (You don’t even need a pattern!) and the matching fabric flower hair clips.  You’ll love it!

sew this twirly skirt

One of two twirly skirts I made and its matching fabric flower hairclip. We'll do a full tutorial in the next day or two. You'll love how simple it is to make something so adorable! And you won't even need a pattern!

In the meantime, lets get this GIVEAWAY off to a good start.  The mandatory entry is simple.  In a comment, below, tell me the first thing you would make if you win the Brother CS6000i!  That’s it.  Then just click that DO IT button, then Enter and you’ll unlock all the other optional entries to increase your chances of winning the drawing.

  1. Karlene Shamir says:

    if I won the first thing i’d make are high waisted shorts from old jeans I still have

  2. Oh, goodness! I’m not sure what I’d make first! A dress or skirt for DD, or some crafty stuff that I’ve had on the back burner~ maybe I’d actually finish a quilt or two that I have the pieces for but haven’t “pieced” just yet! (My sewing machine went on the blink about 3 or 4 years ago, and I haven’t been able to replace it.

    This would be fab, because I *do* have projects in mind AND I have a teenager that would like to learn to sew!

    • I love that it is so easy to whip up cute clothes for the kids and grandkids, now! And I’m guessing I will eventually have a new quilt or two in my future, too. I have made one for each of our three grandkids when they were born.

  3. Heather Reich says:

    The first thing I would make on this machine if I won it would be a set of curtains for my daughter’s play kitchen that we are building.

  114. Ma Belle says:

    The first thing I’d make with this machine is a wedding dress for my daughter.

  115. Aww, my mom’s response above is really sweet. ^^ Unfortunately it makes my response sound a little selfish by comparison. XD Years ago, I used to dress up in costumes (cosplay) at Japanese animation conventions. Over time, I wound up doing more work at conventions and focusing on events and photographing other people’s costumes. Just in the last couple of years, I’ve fallen in with a group of friends who have really got me inspired to get back into cosplay. The first thing I would sew is a character named Caster, who I’ve had on the back burner for years now. Lots of detail, lots of things I’ll have to draft patterns from scratch for, and lots and lots of layers to sew!

  116. kiersten c says:

    i would make masks and capes for a superhero party!

  117. The first thing I’d make if I win this sewing machine is new curtains for my daughter’s bedroom!

  128. Karen Fields says:

    The first thing I’d make would be a pillow. That’s the only thing I know how to make. Second order of business would be sewing lessons.

    renfie.fields(at)gmail.com

  129. I don’t even know how to sew! Is that awful?! We are trying to move off the grid – seriously, like buy a farm and start doing more for ourselves so I went to the sewing shop to see about taking a class and got intimidated and pretended I needed vacuum cleaner bags instead because they sell those there too. I’m a wuss. So I guess I would sew whatever I could figure out how to sew…

  130. carrie bayne says:

    I have a cute dress pattern that I am dying to make. That is the first project I’d complete if I won this machine!

  131. JulieK says:

  132. Cielito says:

    I’m studying Couture Dressmaking and has no sewing machine yet. :( Have done my first project so far (basic shift dress) using our school’s sewing machine/s. Would have wanted to own one Brother CS6000i to get me sewing to my succeeding projects… ;)

  133. Alex Liz Robinson says:

    I am not good as sewing yet, but i think I would try repairing some items first. I will probably start small!

  151. Priscilla Craddock says:

    Im trying to sign the kids and me up for sewing classes but most places require you to have a machine for each person. I don’t have one. This would be a great blessing.

  152. Angela says:

    I don’t know what I would make! I always loved to sew as a child – making ‘hammer’ pants and shorts were something I did a lot.

    I think pillowcases. I love to keep the kids’ rooms simple in decoration and use the pillowcases to accent with their ‘current’ favorite character, since they tend to outgrow those things quicker than I want to redo rooms. Buying fun fabric and making pillowcases is a great way to quickly change the feel of a room. I used to be able to buy them, but seems that now you have to buy a full set of sheets, no themed pillowcases on their own anymore.

  159. Jen says:

    I found an abandoned sewing machine a few months ago, and since I didn’t have money to take it to a store to be repaired, I started learning how to fix it up myself. This past weekend, I was almost ready – it would start up, and seemed on the verge of sewing! I jumped the gun, downloaded a cute pattern from Colette (the Madeleine Mini Bloomers seen here: http://tinyurl.com/3hbj728), bought fabric and thread, and came home to work.

    Well, of course I made a mistake in fixing the tension dial, and gears and springs flew all over the room. Today I dragged the machine in, and was told it would cost way too much to repair. So, I have a beautiful pattern, fabric all cut out, and a hankering for cute bloomers. I’d give a lot to have a working sewing machine!

But recently I discovered Pinterest and all the cool sewing tutorials has given me sew envy. A friend recently bought this model so I’ve been coveting it secretly on Amazon every night asking myself to sew, or not to sew. To sew or not to sew. Well when I finally decided to take the plunge (last night) Amazon says they’ve unlisted the machine while they do some reviewing of their stock. Apparently it will be back up in a few days. But hey, if I can win one here, even better!

  752. summer bonner says:

    I would make my newly adopted dog, Hank , whom I just found out has Retinal Degeneration a Bed. I love my Special Baby with Special Needs.

  753. Greta says:

    I’d make my pile of clothing that needs to be repaired go away. I have a huge stack of pants to hem, holes in bedding to close up, seams to restitch, etc. I’ve got to get the back seams in my husband’s shorts restitched before he breaks them open and the world gets to see his butt crack in all its glory.

  754. Sand says:

    I would hem my pants because they are always too long.

    Hi I have tried so hard to enter this contest but I cannot get the rafflecopter to load. I refreshed this page 5 times and have closed windows and reopened it and tried your blog again but it just would not load.

    If I won the first thing I would make is a quilt for my 5 year old made out of t shirt panels that I have been saving up.
    I am a loyal email subscriber and I don’t know what the other enteries were but if you could enter these two I would appreciate it very much

    I have been wanting to make some breast cancer themed lap blankets to donate to Erlanger.I am a 6 year breast cancer survivor and I had my surgery and chemo there.When you are that sick it helps alot to know that people care.

    Did I miss this? OMW!! I would have made my grandkids aprons as they love to be in the kitchen with me.

  770. Lisa McFarland says:

    Boy, I wish I had not missed this giveaway. I do not have working sewing machine and I can no longer afford to get a new one or have the old one fixed. My nephew just graduated and I was not able to give him a graduation gift because I could not afford it. If I had been on time for this giveaway I would have made him a personalized quilt with all the things he loves on the blocks so he could have something from me while he is away at college. Maybe I will have better timing if you ever have another giveaway. :)

  771. Ronnie Heyer says:

    My sewing machine was destroyed due to Superstorm Sandy and all Cheistmas decorations as well. I would use this beautiful Brothe machine to sew new Cheistmas stockings for all the family.

  772. Samantha says:

    I recently got this machine for Christmas and am quite excited about it. However, I am having trouble getting my 01 stitch straight. They seem to have a slight twist to them. Wondering if you have any tips!
