the brother xl-5340, i have had this machine for about 9 years or so, so it is an older machine, but still working for me(it came with a 25 year warrenty). this machine has 21 differnt stitches, 40 stitch functions, 1-step auto size button holder, F.a.s.t. needle threader, Quilting freatures included & auto bobbin winder, light, on and off switch & foot peddle. it is built solid and gets the job done, i am impressed with the sewing machine, use it often an would recommend it to other, especially to new sewers or someone who wants a simple machine. i am not a crafty person, or a good sewer in fact i often say "yes i sew, but just straight lines", lately i have experiment with the machine and have been using it more often, so this brother machine is well worth the money and i would recommend the machine to any new sewer or experienced sewer. i hope you find this review helpful for all you sewers!!!
