Our Brother XL2600I 59 Stitch Functions sewing machine has an easier top drop in bobbin with full rotary hook, than the Sears Kenmore item# 02015358000 Mfr. model# 15358 58 Stitch Functions made by Janome, which has the old style, underneath front load shuttle hook and bobbin case you have to remove when changing bobbins. Sears 15358 is slower and noisery because the oscillating shuttle clicks and wears parts more than Brother's rotary action. It is also harder to find out how much bobbin thread is left because you have to remove the bobbin case and bobbin to inspect. Brother XL2600i has a clear plastic bobbin cover which allows you to readily see how much bobbin thread if left, so you don't run out. Shuttle hooks are more likely to jam threads than the smooth rotary action of drop in bobbin systems.

I got the sewing machine in two days. I could not be more impressed. Thank you.

Brandi, New Jersey
Thank you so much for making the opportunity for me to buy a very good sewing machine at a very affordable price PLUS the free vacuum!!

Glen T, Norwalk CT
Hi John, I appreciate your getting back to me by phone as quickly as you have. As I told you, your company's reaction to issues both good and not so good is excellent. My wife has been sewing since she was 10 years old and I gave her the email from you. She had my daughter show her the machine and the issue was solved by her in minutes. My daughter evidentally was threading the bobbin (all chinese to me) wrong. She corrected it and the tension and operation was on the money!! Many thanks again for all your help and trust me, I'll be buying from you again in the future!! Regards, Glen T
