Since the NQ3500D arrived, I’ve been “playing” with it every day as a beginner quilter, and embroiderer. This machine is impressive. It set up easily for me. I was able to learn how to attach and detach the embroidery parts when I needed to without too much trouble. Brother sent all of the manuals – which by the way saved me more than once. “Just read the manual!”. I’m not much of a manual reader obviously but I did force myself to sit down and go through them. Brother has done an excellent job of providing a visual step-by-step for just about every single adjustment you’d ever need to make on the NQ3500D. Learning to use to touch pad was no trouble, however not all of the symbols were familiar to me, so again, it’s a very quick check within the manual to figure it out. One feature that had both pros and cons was the “bobbin soon empty” warning that pops up on the LCD touch screen display. Unless there is a reason to leave 12″ or more of your bobbin thread to throw away every time, you are forced to push the “go” button every five stitches to use up the thread still on the bobbin. Perhaps changing the parameters within that programming would help others using this machine too. Winding the bobbin took some practice, and, careful attention until I got the hang of it. For some reason, I had my thread winding around the bobbin post, instead of the bobbin when I tried to wind it. :( Every sewing machine has it’s own personality and quirks, etc. This is a machine that would take me a good six months to master fully and feel confident using as my main machine. Remember, I’m really a rookie embroiderer and quilter with the attention span of a gnat! The NQ3500D is a licensed Disney embroidery machine! Of course this machine is fully computerized (with USB input to import designs from your memory stick) and offers many of the features that the Brother DreamWeaver has, such as the automatic thread cutter that worked perfectly every single time, and the needle threader, which I will admit, I had to get the hang of but as soon as I mastered it, it worked perfectly every single time. The first embroidery design that I set up, and ran worked beautifully. (phew!) The stitch tension I did not adjust, not once! My stitches had perfect tension, every single time. The stitch speed was pretty good. Comparing the speed of this machine to the speed of my industrial machines shows the computerized NQ3500D slower, but fast enough for a domestic home machine. I really loved the ability to adjust the speed with the slider on the head of the machine, and the ability to start, stop, back-stitch, with one finger, rather than the foot pedal. I did not install or use the foot pedal at all. The presser feet were easy to switch and identify, each in their very own place inside the flip-open storage compartment at the front of the machine. Each stitch, and design presented on the touch screen, also indicated which presser foot should be used to eliminate guessing, and saved me time. The Brother NQ3500D test was fun, productive, and I learned a lot. Everything was beautiful.
