    Thanks man… bought this as a gift for a family member who loves to sew
    but wasn’t sure how to use this machine. I guess she was use to a different
    type of machine. This video gave me the basic info I needed to get her
    started. Now she is sewing like the pro that she is!

    Could you make a video regarding on how to adjust the settings for this
    Brother XL2600i. This video is my main instruction manual, I just got my
    sewing machine two days ago. BEST video on you tube!!!

    Please tell me there are other straight stiches on there D: I’ve never had
    a sewing machine b4 but I’ve seen the singer ones with at least 3 different
    straight ones. Like more farther apart n stuff. Can u explain the different
    ways to use the stiches on there 🙂 like with the tension bc I’m such a
    noob at these things haha

    Awesome visual for teaching beginners how to sew and use this specific
    machine. Very helpful and now I’m eager to make my first project with this
    sewing machine that I’ve had for 2+ years now lol 2 thumbs up!

    You missed the bottom hook just above the needle. Also, this machine has an
    automatic needle threader for the upper thread too, it might be helpful for
    people to know. 🙂 thanks for posting.

    Possibly a silly question but how loud is this machine? I live in an
    apartment that’s not very well insulated and I have neighbors just below
    me. I do most of my sewing (by hand) at night so that’s likely the only
    time I’ll be able to use my machine.

    Kris, Thank you so much for your tutorial! I always wanted to learn how to
    so but was so intimidated. I got this machine for Christmas and yours was
    the first video I watched. I’m sewing up a storm now! Appreciate it :)

    Kris! Fantastic demo! I am very mechanically inclined, however, I have
    never used a sewing machine. I plan to sew three dust collection bags for
    my dust collectors in my shop. VERY helpful video…….many thanks.

    Hello, can you please tell me what were your settings regarding: stitch,
    thread tension and stitch width? I have the same sewing machine and been
    figurind this out. Thank you!

    Thanks a lot for the video, very helpful! i’m getting my machine for
    Christmas and can’t wait to play with it! (although i’m very new at
    sewing).
    anyway, i know that right there next to the needle on a left side there is
    a little plastic arm helping you to get thread through the needle ear. i
    believe it’s very handy, and would be cool if u showed how to use that
    thing too. no biggie though ;)
