MACHINE DESCRIPTION

The Brother LS2125i Easy-To-Use is a Full-Size machine, built with easy to use Mechanical features. The Brother LS2125i has a total of 10 different types of stitches, including 1 buttonhole stitch.

We class the Brother LS2125i Easy-To-Use as “Very Basic“, meaning that this machine has features that are suitable for a sewer working at a Very Basic skill level. In general, machines that are classed as "Very Basic" tend to have only the bare minimum of features needed for sewing and are best suited for those who only sew occasionally, or who are only just learning to sew and do not need more than the most essential features.

Standard or full-size machines are the most versatile machine size as they work for a range of sewing applications. Full-size machines are usually wider than compact machines and this gives you slightly more space to manoeuvre the fabric around the needle area.

The Brother LS2125i has basic features such as a Free Arm with Removable Cover, Standard Foot Pedal and an Inbuilt light for safe and easy sewing. Reverse stitches, used for securing the thread in the fabric at the beginning and end of a stitching line, are created with a Reverse Lever.

When setting up and threading the sewing machine, the Brother LS2125i has a Bobbin that sits inside a bobbincase before being inserted into your machine. There are No Special Guides for Threading on this model and the needle threading is Manual.

We believe the Brother LS2125i is compatible with presser feet that are Press On / Low Shank. If you already have presser feet that are compatible with this type of shank from a previous sewing machine, then in many cases you will be able to use the same presser feet on this model as well. To be sure that presser feet can be used on different machines, or when buying new presser feet and other parts and accessories, you should always check that they are compatible with your specific machine number. So for this machine you will need parts and accessories compatible with make and model Brother LS2125i.

Stitch types on the Brother LS2125i include: Straight Stitch, Buttonhole, Decorative, Zigzag. The buttonhole process is a 4 Step Buttonhole. 4 step buttonholes are created in stages and are a more manual process than 1 step buttonholes.

On the Brother LS2125i, the maximum stitch length is 7mm, and the maximum stitch width is 5mm. The stitch length on this model is adjusted By Stitch Selection Only. The stitch width on this machine is adjusted By Stitch Selection Only.

The Brother LS2125i is listed as being Suitable for a range of different fabric weights, from silk to denim. On many machines, these results will only be achieved with the correct needle and thread combination, so specialty needles and threads may need to be purchased separately and may not be supplied with your machine. You should consult the manual for your machine to ensure that the machine is set up correctly when sewing different fabrics, and always sew test samples to get the best possible stitch quality and to achieve perfectly balanced tension.

This model appears to have no special features for presser foot adjustment, so if this feature is important to you, you may like to consider machines with manual / adjustable presser foot pressure. The Brother LS2125i adjusts the tension of the upper thread using an Adjustable / Manual Control. Adjustable upper thread tension gives you complete control over the tension of the upper thread and this tension can be manually adjusted to balance the tension of your stitches.

This model has no special automated controls. For example, this model does not have automated controls for the needle stop position, automated back tacks or automated thread trimming. If automated controls are important to you then you might like to consider a machine classed as Competent, Advanced or Professional.

With a voltage of 110v we believe this machine is suitable to use in the USA, but it is always best to consult the information provided by the manufacturer (Brother) or consult a sewing machine distributor prior to purchase to ensure that the machine will work in your region if you are unsure. Most manufacturers do not recommend using adaptors to convert the voltage of your machine for safety reasons.
