This is a versatile, lightweight machine that is great for sewing, quilting, and decorating clothing. It comes with 25 built-in stitches, a thread cutter, automatic needle threader, drop-in bobbin system, quick-change presser feet, and a one-step automatic buttonholer. This is a great feature, considering most inexpensive machines come with a four-step buttonhole, which requires four steps instead of just one.
The Brother XL2610 is very much like the XL2600i, except for one important feature. This has a four-step buttonholer, which unlike the Brother XL2600i that has a one-step automatic buttonhole, requires four steps instead of one. Because of this, we would recommend the Brother XL2600i. The Brother XL2600i is eligible for Prime Shipping.
