Brother XR3774 Sewing Machine Review

For those of you who are just getting started into sewing and learning how to sew then you are going to find that this is a great starter sewing machine. The Brother XR3774 is also a good sewing & quilting machine for when you need to upgrade from a more basic machine.


This Is A Very Beginner Friendly Sewing Machine

When you get your Brother sewing machine there's a quick start guide and DVD and that's going to get you all set up.

On the actual Brother sewing machine, there are diagrams of how to place the sewing bobbin so you never have to guess which way it goes in. It's all right there for you. That's especially helpful for sewing beginners or if you just sew once in a while, you might not remember the way that the bobbin should be placed.


Good For Small Sewing Businesses & Etsy Shops

If you are looking for a good machine for your hobby, small business or Etsy shop, you will find that this sewing machine has all of the features that you will need from making everything from fashion designs, pillow cases, totes and smaller items like doll clothes too. The quilting table makes it especially great for large quilt projects.

Brother does offer many sewing machines that are more advanced than this one, but if you are just learning, then this will be a great sewing machine to get started on without feeling overwhelmed. It's a very beginner-friendly sewing machine.

This Sewing Machine Will Stitch Through Most Fabrics Easily

This Brother sewing and embroidery machine will sew through both thin and heavier fabrics. There are different settings depending on what fabric you will be using. All of the information about fabric settings are in the manual that is included. With the proper settings set, you will be able to sew everything from cotton canvas to more delicate & stretchy fabrics.


Tension Control

The tension control allows you to set it to the perfect tension for the kind of fabric you are going to be using. So it will sew on many kinds of fabrics like fleece, denim and quilting fabrics that have several layers.


Good Foot Pedal Resistance

The foot pedal has good resistance so that when you are pressing down on it with your foot, it feels like you have total control. Sometimes foot pedals are way too easy to push down and then your needle will kind of get away from you.


Walking Foot Included

There are many feet included, but the walking foot will be especially helpful. The walking foot is great because it helps pull the fabric through the machine evenly when you are working with several layers of fabric.



Comes standard with several needles including a twin needle. Those are used to sew parallel and decorative stitching onto your pieces. So it gives your project a clean & professional look.


Easy Threading System

The Brother XR3774 sewing machine has an easy threading system so all you need to do is pull down a handy lever and that's going to thread the needle for you. We all know how frustrating that can be sometimes!


    Sewing Feet

    You can swap feet easily with the easy change lever.

    • Zipper
    • Button
    • Zigzag
    • Walking
    • Buttonhole
    • Overcasting
    • Quilt guide
    • Quilting foot
    • Blind stitch foot
    • Narrow hem foot


    There is a top load bobbin, so you just set it in super easily. The bobbin cover is see through. Brother also placed a thread cutter right beside the bobbin and also on the side of the sewing machine.
