Brother LX3014 Review In Detail

One thing we really liked about Brother LX3014, is that it has a really powerful motor that can deliver 900 stitches/min. That is some power.

Editor rating


LX3014 is a basic beginners sewing machine from Brother. Brother LX3014 comes with 14 built-in stitches including a 4-step buttonhole. There are a total of 35 stitch functions on the machine.

The reverse sewing lever is of decent size and you can easily engage it. An LED bulb illuminates the work space. Free arm can be accessed by removing the built-in storage compartment. There is a built-in handle for portability. The machine weighs just 12.1 lbs, so it is easy to carry. Stitch selection is done by turning a dial. The maximum stitch width is 5mm and stitch length is 4mm. There is a 25 year limited warranty cover for this machine.

Ease of Use

One thing we really liked about Brother LX3014, is that it has a really powerful motor that can deliver 900 stitches/min. This is more powerful than some of the advanced computerized machines.

Drawbacks

No 1-step buttonhole and top drop-in bobbin.

Review Verdict

Brother LX3014 will have to face some stiff competition from the popular Brother XM2701, which comes with 27 built-in stitches, 1-step buttonhole, top drop-in bobbin etc.
