Giveaway: Brother Computerized Sewing Machine

Dec 26, 2012

How are your holidays so far? I hope you're reading this in your pj's, relaxed and all cozy and warm. Was Santa good to you? If the man in the red suit didn't bring you the sewing machine that was on your wish list, then you'll want to read on!

If you've been following my blog, you'll know that someway, somehow, during the last six months while we've been renovating our basement, we lost our sewing machine. Crazy, I know. And given that I recently took up sewing, making costumes and pillow cases and other fun stuff, I was really disappointed with the loss.


Then Brother came to the rescue. They suggested that their NS-40 computerized sewing machine could be just what I needed. As a beginner sewer, I was looking for a machine that was easy to use but had the potential to do more down the road as I improved my sewing skills. I wanted something with a button hole feature (the old manual machine really frustrated me in that department) and had a variety of stitch patterns. I hadn't considered a computerized machine, but now that I've tried one, let me tell you, it makes things so much more easier, faster, and efficient.

A few of my favourite features:

  • The LED light. Its sharp, bright, and precise.

  • The variety of stitches. The NS-40 has 40 styles built-in, including 5 different types of one-step buttonholes. Picking a stitch is as easy as turning the dial. Not only that, the machine also tells you which presser foot (all provided) you need to use for each type of stitch. Easy peasy.
  • Speaking of presser feet, all the attachments come in this handy pouch hidden in the machine. In fact, everything you need to get sewing is there and ready to go. There are super simple features like the FAST bobbin winder and the automatic needle threader (yes, no more straining your eyes!), even push button start and stop, which are so easy to use.
  • The printed guide right on the machine showing where to put the thread for winding a bobbin and for threading the machine. With the old machine, I always had to pull out the manual to see the step by step on threading the machine! Having the 1-2-3 right in front of me is so convenient.
So those are some of the features I've tried out so far. Visit the Brother.ca website to see more about what this awesome machine can do. And what did I make? I used the cute keyhole buttonhole...

on my reversible buffalo check / ticking stripe pillow...

and a fancy stitch for an envelope-back pillow.

So much fun! I can't wait to tackle more sewing projects. And guess what? One of you lucky readers will win a sewing machine and get to tackle some projects too! Woohoooooo!


Awesome, right? This is a special dealer model that cannot be found in stores or online. This is my biggest giveaway ever on this blog and a wonderful way to end the year. Thank you to Brother for sponsoring this giveaway!! Good luck.

  1. I just found this blog, looking forward to the updates as I am adding it to my RSS reader to stay on top. I would really like to win this price and learn how to saw. I am thinking a computerized sawing machine will make it easier for me to accomplished one of my 2013 goals. I will be picking up a ton of fabric from a friend so it would be great to win this contest!

    (BTW- What is the machine threaded for?  It looks like you skipped '2', which is on the path for bobbin and sewing...)

  156. Awww man, what a great giveaway! If I won, I would first return my mother-in-law's sewing machine to her (I have been "borrowing" it for a few years and I know she'd appreciate to get it back!). Then, I would go to town on sewing draperies for my baby girl's room. :)

    My mom used to have a sewing machine I used for pillows and such but then she invested in this second-hand industrial one and I'm at a loss as to where to begin.  This would be perfect for DIY home accessories projects!

    My first (and only) sewing machine is a Brother.  With this fancy shmancy machine I'd sew up Roman blinds for our family room - the windows are beautiful but I swear I feel a breeze...
