Subject: Brother CS 6000I v. Kenmore 19110 Date: 1/19/07 3:22 PM

Hi, I'm in need of a new machine (my 50 year old Singer finally bit the dust). I don't sew a whole lot, mainly easy patterns and mending, but I'd like something I can "grow into" that is still fairly inexpensive. Is there anyone who has experience with either of these machines that can tell me which is better and why? I'm trying to compare the CS 6000I from Brother and the Kenmore 19110. I accidentally posted the wrong brother model # in the title. Thanks,

Did you check the machine reviews here on PR on these 2 models? If not, go to the left of the page and click on sewing machine and serger reviews, then go to the top of that page and click on the brand. I think there are reviews for the Kenmore model you are interested in but am unsure about the Brother but you might find a similar Brother model reviewed.

km,

As you are looking through the reviews, you might find it helpful to know that the Kenmore 19110, Janome Harmony 8080, and Janome DC3050 are nearly indentical machines.

I actually did a head to head comparison in a reveiw on PR between the Brother CS6000 and the Janome 8080. Bottom line- both nice machines for the money, but the 8080 is sturdier and barely edged out the CS600 in overall stitch quality. the Brother had a few more sittches (10) and a few more styles of buttonholes.

If you are looking for a compact 3/4 sized computerized machine for under $200, the CS6000 (T or i or whatever) would be a great option. If this is going to be your only sewing machine, then I vote for the Kenmore 19110. It is full size, but still quite portable, and sturdier IMHO.

Is the Brother the one that is sold at Wal-Mart? If so, I have seen it there but have no experience with it myself. I do, however, own the Kenmore 19110 and think it is a great machine at a good price. Mine is a refurbished one that I got from Sears Overstockers on eBay. I only paid $102 plus shipping for mine and the total price was $120. Mine does come with the warranty, though. Even at the regular price of $299 I still think the 19110 is a great machine at a reasonable price. I'm going to be giving mine to my only daughter (I have four sons, too) who, at age 42, has decided she would like to learn to sew. I offered the machine and she jumped on my offer immediately! So, it won't be mine much longer but I am happy to pass it along to her. I am a sewing machine addict who is in recovery and I really only need my combo machine and serger.

How nice of you to part with this machine and give it to your daughter!I know she will enjoy it. When I gave my little Janome Jem to my son I stewed for about 7 months and then broke down and bought myself the little Jem 2. Sigh...you know it isn't that we NEED another machine...hahaha.
