Brother’s Quattro 6000D Sewing Machine

by Mark R

It’s not very often that we report on sewing machines here at Coolest Gadgets, but Brother’s Quattro 6000D is definitely worth talking about. I mean, I remember my mother had a Singer sewing machine when I was growing up, but it would look like a dinosaur compared to this guy!

Yes, my mother’s Singer never had a 4.5 x 7 inch Sharp HD LCD display. This screen is there for a close-up look at whatever you are sewing, as the machine has a tiny camera located right next to the needle.

The 6000D also has “embedded runway lighting”, which will give all the people who are vision impaired a little help, and will also insure precise stitching. For those that don’t have sewing experience, the 6000D comes with advanced embroidery features and built-in tutorials.

This is definitely a sewing machine prepared for this millennium as it comes with 3 USB ports. Don’t ask me what you would want to plug into them, but at least you can power up other USB powered devices.

So if you like sewing, then the Brother Quattro 6000D is probably your baby. There is no word on availability or price, but I can’t imagine it being inexpensive.

Too bad the computer industry doesn’t take over the sewing machine industry, because they are not getting the message. Embroidery needs to be generic USB drive(s) and the machine needs to recognize the standard graphic formats, especially .jpg so we can make our own designs using our own graphic packages. Tying a sew machine to an operating system that quickly goes out of date and using propriety file extensions is inefficient and costly to the end user. Notice how each company buries the operating system compatibility down deep in their website without mentioning future upgrades. Since the technology has been around since 1990, all the machines should auto thread, auto tension and fabric sense. Big whoop on the zoom function, it is already built in to Vista by using the control plus key or control minus key and is nothing that a magnifying glass does not cure at the machine.

These current price tags are ridiculous and costs more than 10 times my new notebook with a rate of depreciation that is faster than cars. Ladies, wake up and stop buying in order to force the prices down. We do all the hours of work and have to pay for all the materials, so why pay such exorbitant prices in order for them to retire on our nickel. Time to boycott to show them the female race has smartened up.

Just ask yourself how many clothes you could buy with the price of a new sewing machine. Can you go to Walmart, buy the embroidery patch and sew it on by hand? Isn’t this amount of money better invested in a new car or college education than in a sewing machine with a very limited shelf-life.

Built in obsolesce and proprietary software went the way of flood pants. The men just are not listening to our pleas so time to withhold the money in order to get their attention. Spread the word!

I just bought a quattro 6000D about 2 weeks ago and I Love, love, love it. It was a 3month demo and paid 5,000.00 I got so much with it and still everything has come in. It is just a Super machine.
I would recommend it to anyone.

I have a Brother 4500D and absolutely love it! It has so many features that I use daily I can’t even describe them all. Now the Quattro with the snoman is a perfect addition. Having access to Disney designs is just one more feature that Brother is tops on. These top end machines are amazing and so much fun! These machines easily top the European made machines that have been top machines for so long. If you watch you can get great specials!

I just bought to Quattro II. Love it! I am tickled to death with the little camera feature. I plan on having many happy sewing years with my Quattro.
