From John M. Douthat, Founder of AllBrands:""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. This is a premium service that mass merchants can't offer, as they simply don't have the tech service or repair departments for your equipment. 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, and this is something we guarantee on our Brother machines."
"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, Wallkill, NY"

Part Three of the Fifteen Part series about making your own Little Black Dress with Angela Wolf!.
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 would like to thank you for the email you sent stating I could receive a price that I found online but was able to purchase from allbrands. You have exceeded my expectations of your firm and I am more than happy to shop with you at all time. Your customer service was excellent and the product has made me very happy as it was a present for my birthday and you made that happen. Thank you again and I look forward to shopping with you in the near future.
Berthalyn M, Turkey Creek LA
I purchased this through the Lafayette Store. The staff their was awesome!
Lynda R, West Alexandria OH
My experience was a pleasant one and plan on doing business with you again in the future.
Jeanne M, Plymouth MI
Best price and fast shipping. Thanks!
Jan Z, Darby MT
I was very impressed with service and customer service. I could not ask any better. And will be doing more business with you. Thank You
Herb K, LaPorte IN
Bought this machine for my wife, she really likes it, she has used it everyday since she got it. She has been sewing for 35 years!
Janet D, Grand Coteau LA
Service at the store was very good. Explanation of how to operate the machines worked was very detailed. From the moment we entered the store, we were treated as though we wanted to make a purchase. I have been to other stores(not all-brands) where I was looked at like I could not possibly afford the products.
Christy S, Newport Beach CA
Fantastic machine!! I wanted a machine without all the bells and whistles of extra stitches and wanted quality and durability. This machine fit the bill. I have a small machine for zig zag and button holes. As an old school home economics college graduate this has been a long time coming. For me the thread cutter, feed dog flexibility,thread guide, table extension and automatic needle stop down are the bells and whistles for me.
I bought this sewing machine a little over a year ago now and absolutely love it. I mainly bought it for quilting and doing large dog pillows. I use to always have issues with the tension on my other sewing machine and this one haven't had a problem yet. The needle threads fast with the needle threader and the automatic thread cutter is my favorite feature, honestly i don't think i now would ever buy another sewing machine without it. Have nothing but great things to say about my sewing machine. Love it!
Sherry B, Ormond Beach FL
I've ordered 2-3 machines from here and have been extremely satisfied, I've had other people order from here, because I like this company and when I called this time the woman I spoke with was extremely helpful and she confirmed that my feelings were right on target. Thank you for the quality of customer service and quality products you carry and your prices are always very competitive and are usually always lower. I'm a very happy customer that always come back to order something else. Thank you Sherry B
Debbie P, Canada
Got my sewing machine today safe and sound. Just wanted to thank you for your great service and I'll be recommending you to all my sewing Canadians . Debbie P
Cynthia, United States
Excellent machine for straight stitching. Lighting is anemic. Wish there was an LED replacement bulb for it.
Vickie Loucks, PA
I got this in record time very fast shipping. very happy with the machine so far and cant wait to play with it for a very long time
I just received this machine and it is SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL and SMOOTH! With any machine you get, Read all the instructions first regardless if you are a professional seamstress/etc or not. It was very easy to set up and stitching runs nice and quiet. I have checked everything thoroughly, I am missing one item in my accessory pack, a small feed pin part, but that's ok. I will use my warranty to get that covered as your machine includes a 2 yr parts and labor coverage. NICE! Very happy, I look forward to keep Allbrands a part of my go-to for tools I can count on.
The person on the phone was very nice and AllBrands packed my small bobbin order in with my machine and shipped it all for free. Thank you. Shipping was faster than I figured and I missed the first delivery. Fed-Ex brought it back the very next day!! I am in love with my new machine and couldn't be happier with AllBrands.

Sylvia Wichman, Emmett, KS
This machine is exactly what I expected it to be and is all that it was advertised to be! I am delighted with it and with the top-notch service Allbrands promised. Very courteous representatives and timely delivery has made me a most satisfied customer!
I live in Thibodaux, LA which is only about 70 miles away but I must say I am extremely happy with your service and shipping is excellent. I have also shopped in your Baton Rouge store and the service there is excellent also. Thanks for being there for us sewists!!!!
I LOVE my Brother! Everything about the buying experience with Allbrands was great. This happy customer thanks you wholeheartedly.
Lenora, BC, Canada
I was very impressed with the young lady I spoke to on the telephone The reason I bought from you is because several people where I live recommended both the machine and particularly your company as the place to buy it from. My experience in dealing with you has been excellent. I was most impressed. Thank you again.
Donald, New Jersey
Great doing business with you.
Sherry, Nova Scotia
I am very satified with my quilting machine. So far it works like a charm. Thank you very much.
This machine is so very nice and meets my needs. I will indeed order from your company again.
Fast shipment...thank you so much!
I was thrilled with the ease of buying my machine (knew exactly what I wanted and so it was easy to find on your web page) at AllBrands.com. I was comparing prices and yours was the lowest. I was thrilled with how quickly my sewing machine came. It was boxed & brand new as stated and it works like a charm.
I am very happy with my machine, thank you and would have no hesitation in shopping again with AllBrands or recommending them to others.
Thanks once again for the amazing products and service. I recommend ALLBRANDS to all of my quilting friends.
very happy with my purchase!!
Lauretta, New York
Very satisfied with your products and excellent descriptions. Fast service is great. Thank you
I love my new brother quilting machine!
Absolutely 100% pleased!!!
I purchased my first Brothers 1500S some years ago and was very pleased with experience. When I lost that machine in the Bastrop Complex Wildfires Labor Day weekend in 2011, I knew when I could replace it, I would go with allbrands.com.
I think you have excellent pricing and offer an incredible selection of products. Keep up the great work!!!
Very happy with whole precedure. Love the sewing machine.
Alice, New Mexico
My sewing machine arrived damaged, person I talked to was very helpful. Jennie Watkins e-mailed me promptly and responded to my problems. All-in-all, everything was taken care of wonderfully. Would certainly order fron Allbrands again.
IT"S ALL GOOD
I bought this machine to do machine quilting and tried it for piecing and it sews beautifully. The shipping was very fast; before I turned around it was at my door.
Fantastic service. I ordered on Wed. received order on Friday even though I was told not to expect it til the next week!!!!! Unheard of. Thank you so much. Have already recommended you to others. The person I ordered from on the phone was extremely informative and helpful, too.
I would have sure appreciated getting that discount. But my products are fabulous, everything you promised and they were delivered very promptly. I will definitely order from you again. Thank you.
I have purchased from you before & have sent many friends your way. Thank you for being there.
Erica, New York
I love my machine and am 100% happy. I love that the site gave lots of details about the machine and the features it came with.
Celine, New York
All three of my machines I have purchased thru you. I have had no problems so far with any of them. Keep up the good work!! I'm a loyal customer.
Thank you for the customer service help, she hooked me up with a employee who was more familiar with quilting and quilt frames to answer my questions. I love the machine I purchased along with the grace speed control box. Thanks for all your help and the people who are great to help.
I can't believe how fast orders get to me since I am in Pacific Coast area. Normally other companies take a long time. I wish you had a wholesale division or quantity discount.
I really like your web siite, specifically the presentation and detail after selecting my search criteria. Your prices are not competitive. I've been searching on ebay and on online specifically for this and other Valerie Pfeiffer machine embroidery designs for two months. Your price for this embroidery design pack I purchased was the same as other online sites however with the $10 off coupon I received for signing up, you beat the competition's prices so I purchased the product from AllBrandsHaskins. I would not purchase more without a coupon or discount! Recommendations: Consider adding a part of your product description into the PayPal receipt, onto your invoice, and all your corespondence in addition to your order number. Hope you send out coupons or discounts in the future!
I ordered the Brother PQ1500S, which is absolutely wonderful! I am excited to have the 2340CV to make my grandchildren's clothes. I already had the Brother 350SE and the Brother 1024D, and I truly love the Brother machines for durability and price!
Donna Taylor, Whidbey Island WA
Althought I just received my PQ1500S today, I am thrilled with it. I bought it for quilting on a frame but know I will be using it for piecing also. It is strongly built. Sewed absolutely perfectly out of the box. I tried the free motion quilting foot and it worked perfect. You don't need a stitch regulator with this guy, it sews perfectly. I had black thread on top and white in the bobbin and NO WHITE showed on top. I can't do this with my Bernina 440QE. I ordered this machine on May 1 (late at night) and it was on my door step (on the west coast) on the am of May 4 - and that was free shipping. I am so impressed with Allbrands customer service also. Always answered my questions and were very friendly. I am recommending this machine to all my quilting friends.
I am very impressed with my shopping experience with AllBrands and will definitely shop here again. I have not been able to use my machine yet due to my work schedule.... hence the n/a on product quality.
This purchase was very easy via telephone. I could not make the site on line work for me, but that was all right as I could phone in. I love my machine; it's the second one I have owned, so I knew its capabilities. My other one is being used by a friend who makes hats for cancer patients, young children and adults. it works just fine.
I love this machine. Glad I bought it.
I don't know about Standard and Poors, but you get my AAA rating. You were recommended by someone off of www.quiltingboard.com and they were so right. I found a machine I could afford and that met my specific needs. The shipping was fast and priced right..... free! I would definitely recommend you to my sewing friends.
So far I have nothing but praise for Allbrands and the Brother PQ1500S sewing machine I recently purchased from them. I have not had a chance to really sew much on the machine, but from all the reviews I have seen, this machine will more than meet my expectations! The shipping was extremely fast, and the machine was double boxed with plenty of packing material, so it was definitely shipped safely. Thank you!
John - thank you so very much for your fast response I am up and running again. thanks I am even happier that I am dealing with your company. I will certainly be telling everyone.
Thanks so much. I am super duper pleased with both my machine and the service I have received from your company. You were recommended by some one off of www.quiltingboard.com and they were spot on. I made a tote and smaller bags to house the extension plate, accessories and the foot pedal when I am not using the machine. It was a good exercise in the main features I bought the machine for...free motion quilting, straight sewing, and zippers. Worked like a charm. Thanks again!
awesome product and price, shipped quick and works great, Thanx
I will be back! : )
AllBrands.com is my 'go to' site. I have purchased at least three machines from you.
