My First Sewing Machine

My Grandmother started sewing in our village and then my mother and aunt followed. I wore clothes sewn by mother even in my graduation and I love her designing and stitching. She is an expert quilter as well but her sewing machine was one of the oldest models. She tried that I should learn at least basic stitching but I never touched her old machine which I think was affecting her health as well.
And its 2019, I am in Paris for my PhD; time passes so fast that we can't imagine. I was depressed by infertility and pressure of PhD, it was the month of August that I suddenly started to look Computerised Sewing Machines on Youtube just for relaxing my mind with innovative technology. And it clicked in my mind, why not buy a computerised sewing machine. I did my homework for less costly, basic computerised machines. I ordered a sewing machine Brother CS70. It is a basic machine with 70 stitches but it does not have a Start/Stop button system. So I cancelled the order and started my search again. Then I found my sewing machine, Brother FS 40. I found on La Redoute, it was on sale so I saved few bucks.

Brother FS 40
Brother FS 40 is a computerised sewing machine with almost all basic functions of modern sewing machines. It comes with Instructions manual in many languages, Foot Pedal (Foot Controller), machine cover, seven presser feet, needle set, twin needle, Ball point needle, 4 bobbins, spool caps, extra spool pin, screwdriver, seam ripper, cleaning brush.

Accessories: Foot Controller, Instructions manual § electric cable

Brother FS 40 has Start/Stop button. It is good for those persons who don't like to use foot controller due to any particular reason like me. The machine has reverse stitch and needle Up/Down button, speed controller and the most important, Feed dogs lowering system which is necessary for freehand embroidery and quilting. As an absolute beginner, I found this machine very easy to use. I think in 178.50 € its an excellent computerised machine with the quality of Brother company.

I love my Brother FS 40!
