Laura Ashley Sewing Machine by Brother


This is so exciting! The brand New Limited Edition NX-2000 Sewing and Quilting Machine was just delivered to my door! I have the privilege of test driving this fabulous machine for a week or so and will be posting daily to share with you what I think of the machine. I hope to complete a quilt on it from start to finish.

Brother’s new machine has a savvy design thanks to their new partnership with Laura Ashley which evokes classics of quintessential English design with clean, but feminine, styling and Victorian flavour.

  • The NX-2000 machine is decorated with signature Laura Ashley floral motifs in chalk pink and white is perfect for stitching quilts with varying fabric types, appliqués or embellishments
  • The NX-2000 has high-end embellishment capabilities. These include a total of 460 stitches – 430 built-in and 30 on CD – to help designers create Laura Ashley-inspired items with ease.
  • Specialty accessories to achieve professional sewing effects include:
    • A bobbin case engineered for bobbin-work stitching with specialty threads,
    • A circular attachment accessory for creating precise circles of varying sizes highlighted with decorative stitches and threads
    • Task-specific machine feet for appliqué and better control of seams and top stitching.
  • The three specialty feet included provide more control, greater visibility and ease for echo quilting while the oversized work area and large extension table accommodate projects of virtually any size.
  • The AHA® Automatic Height Adjuster™ feature continuously detects the fabric thickness and automatically adjusts the presser foot pressure to ensure beautiful, precise, even stitching. Plus, the pivot function makes turning intricate corners easy.

  3. I went to the Sewing and Quilting Expo (something like that) last weekend and decided that if I saw the PERFECT machine, for the right show-special price, I would buy it. The Laura Ashley machine was it!! It has features I never even knew existed. It will sew in 4 different directions without turning your fabric! Like this / | \ and - . Amazing. So maybe I'll start a blog and let you know what I'm creating.
