Brother LS-2000

Here's a little post about my sewing machine.
The machine I use, the only machine I have, and the only machine I have ever had is the Brother LS-2000.
My Personal Machine

I've had this same machine since 2009. My Mother-in-Law bought it for me for Christmas. This is what began my sewing journey.

It's a simple mechanized machine, it only has two options straight stitch and zig-zag stitch.
The Controls
I can adjust length and width of each stitch. I also have 3 choices for needle positions, left, middle, and right, and I can not forget the back stitch lever.

It has a vertical spool pin, vertical bobbin case, and a free arm.

Bobbin Case
The tension control is above the needle and the thread does the down, up, down thing.

It's presser foot is clip on  and it is considered a low shank machine.

It came with a zipper foot and a darning plate.

It does'nt do any fancy stitching, but it does do everything I need to do apparel sewing. Messing with the settings I can do a blind hem, a buttonhole, and attach a button.

This is a great starter machine, and cheap it can be bought for $60 at Wal-mart, which is good for a metal gear machine. I would even recommend this one for children because it's pretty easy to use and understand.

I love my machine, even though I dream of a fancy computerized machine, I don't think I would ever get rid of this one. I can't wait to pass it on to my daughters.

Happy Sewing.
