Brother Sewing and Quilting Machine CS6000i Black Friday Deals 2020
Let’s get started this is the brother cs6000i a very popular and recommended sewing machine especially for a beginning quilter so let’s go ahead and take a quick tour of this machine first of all let’s start with it on and off power switch which is down here the machine is currently on because it has a light off and it has a detachable electrical cord so it’s 4 it makes it easier to carry around and put away that’s since I have the machine in this manner there’s a vent to cool off the motor this is a hand wheel flywheel and this wheel does it raises and lower your needle I’m sorry let’s do it this way so you can see your needle this is an elongated base it’s removable so that you can work on sleeves or circular items this is the spool pin where your thread goes into then you have your bobbin winder and the bobbin winder stopper you have your thread guide which helps you thread your put your thread in correctly so that you have the correct tension you have the stitch adjustment buttons which are these and these here you have your take-up or presser foot lever this is the tension dial the needle clamp screw to remove and change your needle this is the presser foot and you could change these feet to suit your sewing needs but this is the needle plate or the throat plate where it has marking signage for measurements could see right here then you have the feed dog and this is located C let’s get this particular fit out and you can see these this mechanism right here has grooves on it so it helps move your fabric through that is the feed dog Bubba bobbin cover release which is right here to release the cover so you could slide your bobbin in bobbin is right here this machine also has depictions or pictures on it sorry so that you can see how to place your bobbin in the holder and then it also has pictures up at the top so you know how to thread your machine this machine comes not only with a foot pedal to make the machine operate it also has an on and off button I prefer using the on and off button because it gives me greater control of what I am sewing this is the reverse stitch button this is the button that uses that you use to put bring your needle up and down this regulates how fast your machine goes and how slow it goes and again these are buttons to adjust the size of your stitching the those are these and then this adjusts your needle so that you can make these various different stitches I do not use the fancy stitches I use a straight stitch either on the side you can move your your needle adjusts right to left in the middle elastic stitching when you use knits when you sew knits zigzag stitching I’ve yet to use any of the decorative stitches and I have not made buttonholes on this machine this machine comes with a set of additional equipment I didn’t bring with bring it with me because I am traveling but I did bring a little box of extra items that I might need for my machine extra needles a screwdriver so that I can adjust loosen and tighten the screws so that I could change my needle that’s right here now as you see I’m gonna turn this on super slow as I increase or move the lever to the right you can hear that the machine has gone faster now I’m very lucky that the still this machine is still in good shape I bought this back in 2014 and I can sew without hanging on to the fabric for this demonstration as you can see I’ve pulled out the fabric and now on the side there is an area where you can cut your threads so if you look really closely you’ll see that it is evenly stitched on both sides here’s the front that just came off the machine and now here’s the back and this machine is set at 0-0 for the needle to be to the left the needle position is on the left and the stitching length is 2.5 now if I increase the number by pressing the plus sign let me see if I can get this closer so you can see it it will increase the number now it’s at 3.0 3.5 4 and it’ll make that stitch wider general sewing for quilting should always be at 2.5 or 3 I have my machine set at 2.5 and you see the smaller stitches what I did is I increased it to 5 and you see how longer each stitch becomes this is the front side that you were looking at as you were stitching and this is the back side and when your tension is proper both the top top and bottom bobbin your stitches should come out even both sides of your fan like this what I’m going to show you now is how to change your stitches I’m going to go from zero zero straight stitch with the needle to the left to a zig-zag stitch which is zero four so I’m going to use the plus sign and raise it one two three four it’s a zero four like zero four and I’m going to increase my stitch it’s it went to one point four so I want my stitch to be a little bit bigger so I’m going to try to make it two point zero two point five the second button regulates how far the zig-zag stitch is from each other let me do a close-up shot of the zig-zag stitch you see how the thread is going left right right left left right right left left right right left pretty neat huh when you are sewing garments they like for you to back stitch and what that means is when you’re making your stitches you stop and you reverse your needle and I’ll show you that in just a moment in quilting we don’t do that because that makes the edges bulkier now there will be some cultures that you’ll see on YouTube that tell you that you need to do that you really don’t because what you’re doing to secure those stitches is when you’re putting your blocks together and you’re sewing them like this are you sewing them like this you are in in other words actually securing those stitches so let me show you what I’m talking about with regards to bags except at the quarter-inch delineation not only here but up here at my Deedle and I’m gonna go ahead and start sewing but wait and doing a garment so I need to back stitch so in this machine I have to hold the button to back stitch see how its back stitching and that secures your thread I just finished back stitching so I want to stitch and continue with my project so I’ll push the button to go and you notice how I’m trying to keep my fabric on the quarter inch not only am i watching here but I’m also watching here No I feel a little bit more confident so I can make money you see how it went out I’ve got to keep your hand on there to make sure that your stitching is straight it’s like driving it will become second nature to you as you become more experienced in sewing now you see it’s at the end of the fabric now I want a backstitch so I’m gonna go ahead and push this button and the feed dog dog feed is going to bring that I are gonna bring that fabric forward you see how a double stitch go ahead and turn on your machine so that you can finish it for and I don’t know how many times I’ll mention this because I am a victim of this to times not once but two I have gotten my fingers caught in this needle index fingers my left hand first time there was somebody in the room with me that they were able to stop the machine and pull the needle up using the hand wheel and I got my finger out the last time was about a year and a half ago and I wasn’t paying attention and this was on my new machine that’s a professional machine that can get the stitches to go 1,500 stitches a minute I was on high-speed wasn’t paying attention and sure enough the finger went in I got shocked scared yanked my finger out and I ripped the skin and made a big mess so please please please please be careful when you’re sewing you want to keep your fingers away from this area because it will be a horrible accident then you don’t want that to happen you and rip the thread and find the end pull it out I’m gonna place it into the spool pin and then I’m gonna bring it across in front of this silver button right here I don’t know if you can see it right here and then I’m going to pull it grab my bobbin and if you can see there’s a little hole where I’m going to stick the thread into let’s see if I can do this in one fell swoop all right here we are we’ve got a back in here again I’m holding a little piece of string thread you can see the bobbin slowed up sighs turn
it off the bobbin will wind more thread because the thread is thinner all right so the thread went in back here that was number one number two goes in through here whines around inside underneath number three up it gets thread into the silver thing it’s got a hole in it number four out again down number five you thread it in here now this machine has a self threading mechanism sometimes I get it sometimes I don’t the needle the hole of the needle is down here and I’m gonna try doing it with the mechanism if not that I’ll have to thread it by hand now I’m going to place my bobbin and it’s very important that the bobbin is placed correctly the bobbin will be dropped right into it into the bobbin holder with the thread to your right let me show you how it should look up close you see how the bobbin thread is pulled up and I should be able to pull my bobbin thread out and you see I’ve got the two threads out this way I usually like to have my thread going to the right even though I’m left-handed I do a lot of things to the right and I believe the proper way for sewing is to have your thread on the right and now you’re ready to start quilting thanks for watching this short quick video tutorial on the brother cs6000i sewing and embroidery machine.
