Useful set of features
Brother International equipped the Project Runway CS5055PRW with a super bright work area for better stitching precision, especially when working with dark colored fabrics. The sewing machine makes threading a breeze with the built-in automatic needle threaded that pushes the thread through the needle’s eye in a jiffy.
It also has a quick-set top bobbin for accessing and setting the bobbin thread conveniently while preventing bobbin jams. To use it, simply drop in the bobbin then pull the thread in through the slot and you’re ready to go.
Other options and accessories
While cheap computerized sewing machines make a mess out of buttonholes, the Project Runway CS5055PRW has a 5 custom-sized buttonholes selection that simplifies the task into a quick, one-step process. The vertical spool pin is another nice addition as will let you feed metallic and other specialty threads more consistently.
This sewing machine is also ideal for quilting thanks to the new drop feed system that makes quilting much easier. The feed system provides effortless sewing even when working on thick and tough fabrics while the integrated stretch stitches makes the machine versatile enough to sew fleece and other elastic materials.
Zipper insertion, button sewing, darning, and twin-needle stitching won’t be a problem either with the handy add-ons in the set. These accessories include the zipper feet, needle set, ball point needle, twin needle, seam ripper, extra bobbin, extra spool pin, cleaning brush, and screwdriver.
