AllBrands is a Brother Authorized Dealer and ASC Authorized Service Center for warranty repairs. We give unlimited tech support by email, fax, phone, text and cell plus service in our shop and referral to nearest ASC. Mass merchants do not have tech service or repair departments for your equipment like we do. They are unable to help you directly, only referring your operational, mechanical or electronic questions back to Brother customer service desk (not their mechanics) instead of taking care of the problems themselves. Brother and customers should expect that any problems you might have will be taken care of by the dealer who sold you the equipment, not simply by referring your requests back to the manufacturer. John Douthat, Owner & Tech, AllBrands.com

"I want to thank you very much for your trouble shooting emails. You are certainly more helpful than Brother Customer Service. They just tell you to take it to an Authorized service repair. I have bought 3 sewing machines from your Company , and would not hesitate to recommend Allbrands to anyone looking for a sewing machine. Your shipping and Customer Service is great! Lauretta D.

icon {Q}Why doesn't the pin feed come up when I turn the hand wheel 360 degrees counterclockwise. {A}The pin feed position on the drop feed lever shown must be selected before it will engage. If you select another position other than pin feed, the pin feed mechanism will not be seen nor operate. Also make sure the presser foot/lever is down so the pin can come up. Please see comments on page 5 of the operation manual. Refer to page 6 of the User’s Manual. The second section demonstrates how to remove/replace the pin. There is no extra pin in the accessories package, as it it already installed on the machine. Mike P.

Juki TL-98E sewing machine is almost identical to the Brother PQ-1500S, except the Brother has exclusive pin feeding mechanism, a longer 7 mm versus 6 mm stitch length, and several extra feet (invisible zipper and fabric seperating foot). Juki has an exclusive foot control switch for auto thread trim and raising needle all in one operation (saves time) Both machines do equally well straight seaming, but have varied in past freemotion quilting performance which has now been corrected. Brother also has a heavier duty walking foot attachment. The Juki TL98E is made in Japan and the Brother PQ1500S is made in Taiwan.

Why does my needle thread break on freemotion when straight stitch sewing is fine.
For freemotion quilting on a frame, please try Schmetz Size 16 Denim needles, A&E Signature cotton quilting thread, fabric pressure guage at 1/2 way (down or up on the window gauge),and make sure the quilt is down flat against the flatbed of the machine so fabric won't ride up and down on the needle (flagging). Also run the machine faster and move the fabric slower, so the needle won't bend in the fabric. Also feel for any needle burrs on the rotary hook, needle plate or bobbin case that might catch thread. Burrs can be polished off with Crocus cloth from the hardware stores. Please advise what works or doesn't work for you. John Douthat, Owner & Tech.

Why doesn't the pin feed come up when I turn the hand wheel 360 degrees counterclockwise.
The pin feed position on the drop feed lever shown must be selected before it will engage. If you select another position other than pin feed, the pin feed mechanism will not be seen or operate. Please see comments on page 5 of the operation manual. Also the presser foot must be in the down position before the pin feed will come up in normal counterclockwise rotation of the hand wheel.

I love, love , love my Brother PQ1500S machine! Just buy it on it's own, without the combo items. The needles and bobbins you can find cheaper. The thread is a bunch of leftovers and in colors you would most likely never use (I received neon orange-like a hunting vest!) and the bag is too small for the machine. You have to squeeze the machine in and it's way too heavy to be carrying around- look for a wheeled case. The video is nothing better than you can see on youtube for free. So, 5 stars for the sewing machine from Allbrands. They shipped for free and it arrived quickly. They are one of the cheapest for this machine as well. DO NOT buy this combo unit- not worth the extra money. Invest your $100.00 in things you will actually use.

I belong to a "quilt club" that makes quilts for a hospice. Each patient receives a handmade quilt and pillow case. All my quilting friends have purchased this machine and highly recommended this website. I will do the same for my friends. I order a lot over the internet, as I live a distance from large cities. This was a wonderful experience and I LOVE my new machine.

Beverly, Louisiana

I own three sewing and embroidery machines. I purchased each from Allbrands and have made purchases with your company for over 14 years. I recently purchased a pleater as well.

Thanks for being an all-round fantastic company.

Brother International, Bridgewater NJ
Brother International Corporation Earns Nod from Esteemed Fashion Industry Expert BRIDGEWATER, N.J., — Deemed the machine that belongs in the sewing room of every serious quilter and seamstress, the PQ1500S from Brother International Corporation was put to the test by Francesa Sterlacci, former Chairperson of New York's Fashion Institute of Technology and current instructor at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Touting one of the fastest sewing speeds in the market and the ability to stitch a variety of fabrics with precision, the PQ1500S passed a rigorous fashion critique ultimately earning the prestigious approval of Sterlacci. "As a professor of fashion design for the past 18 years, I have been looking for a home sewing machine that could handle garment weight leather material. I finally found what I was looking for in the Brother PQ1500S," said Sterlacci. "This machine operates with industrial machine strength but is much easier to operate. Its walking foot attachment, as well as other attachments, allows the sewer to go from heavyweight materials to the finest chiffons with ease. I highly recommend this machine to students, teachers, beginners and even experienced home sewers. It's portable, powerful and a breeze to operate." The fashion industry is renowned for meticulous reviews and candid criticism, making Brother extremely proud to earn the approval of Sterlacci. As one of the fastest home sewing machines on the market, the PQ1500S sews at speeds up to 1,500 stitches per minute. Maneuvering large projects is easy on its oversized bed, which is arguably one of the most generous sewing areas in the industry. The PQ1500S allows pucker free stitching on almost any fabric, which fashion designers like Sterlacci consider an imperative feature. As an additional benefit, designers will enjoy its unique fabric separator feature, which helps to join different fabric weights (such as lightweight lining and velvet) without puckering. The automatic thread cutter instantly resets both top and bottom threads when touched, making it easy to achieve a complete project with minimal setup and adjusting. In addition to its optimal capabilities for clothing designers, the PQ1500S is ideal for quilting projects because of its four feed dog settings for maximum fabric control. The oversized extension table provides easy access to the vertical bobbin while allowing quilting enthusiasts the ability to create quilts of all sizes. With a 3-point quick reference stitch guide including a pin feed, the pin drops automatically when the presser foot is lifted for enhanced machine intuitive functionality. "The popularity behind Project Runway has really driven interest among aspiring designers and the Brother brand. Francesa Sterlacci's approval is a true testament to the capabilities of the PQ1500S and Brother's continued ambition to deliver high quality, innovative products that fashion designers can feel confident using," said Dean F. Shulman, senior vice president and head of Brother's home appliance division. "We are excited that Sterlacci enjoyed the PQ1500S enough to recommend it to students, teachers and enthusiasts of all skill levels."

Joan, Michigan
I was very impressed with the whole process. I usually donot order anything that i have not seen in person but the exception paid off in dividends...love the machine and now your company. THANK YOU...JOAN

Carole, Connecticut
I had not been able to find the model sewing machine which I purchased from you anywhere locally, and was delighted to find this machine which I particularly wanted. Thank you. Carol

LaWanda Doyle, USA
I just want to tell you what a nice experience it was buying a sewing machine from you on line. I am fairly new to the online buying but this was totally painless. I received the machine right on time and was able to track it all the way. And I got the machine for $500 less than I could have in the store locally. The machine is all I anticipated.

Stephen Davis,

Purchased the Brother PQ1500 from you a couple of months ago and I wanted to drop a line to say thanks! This truly is a great machine. I have a Pfaff, and while each machine compliments one another, it's a little hard to go back and sew on the Pfaff for a quilt or garment requiring just straight stitching. The PQ1500 is just so user friendly with great stitching and speed control. The Brother PQ1500 truly reflects consumer thinking on Brother's behalf. But most of all, thank you.

Angie Kiker,

I think every machine quilter needs the Brother PQ-1500! It is perfect for free motion quilting with the large arm, needle up/down, knee lift, and my favorite, the thread cutter and needle threader! Plus the pin feed is wonderful for piecing and putting on binding! I can't say enough about this great sewing machine that ALL the features a quilter needs, plus it comes with all the optional feed you will need for quilting! What a bargain! I LOVE MY Brother PQ 1500!
