Hello,

I am considering buying one of these two machines. Any opinion?

Thank you!

I doubt if these models are sold at dealer, just places such as Walmart , Costco or Amazon. I would have to actually sew on these machines before deciding which one I preferred.

Visit a Brother dealer to see if they have something comparable that you could actually sew with before making the purchase.

You're right, PattiAnn, i found one at Walmart and one at Best Buy. but i'm not near a dealer and this way i can return them if i don't like them.

Thanks!

Did you check the reviews for sewing machines? I am sure they are there.

Hello friends

The Brother CE8080 sewing machine model is a new model form brother and is special edition is more strong and fast. This model is Project run way because brother made 3 category Innovis is top of the line and the second is Porject run way (PRW) line is much more strong and this is CE8080 model and the basic model like SQ900 this is s good model and so pretty but between both I prefer CE8080 model.
Have a good day and god bless you
PS if you want a excellent sewing machine try Brother PC 420 sewing machine but is more expesive is about $400.00 or $500.00 but had 294 stitches and much more features like a sewing machine with price about $3,500.00

the sq9000 seems to have more electronic features like speed control, needle up-down, and according to the walmart site you can sew without foot petal which indicates a start stop button. The CE8080 doesn't seem to have any of this.
