Next Monday, customers of the furniture and appliance giant will get an opportunity to see first-hand what the machines can do, with a demonstration at the Courts showroom floor in Kingstown.

The demonstration will be conducted by Velma Gordon, proprietor of Natural Reflections Interior Designs, and a huge fan of the table-top machines.

“This machine is so easy to use, even a child can use this machine; my daughter is 16 and she can use this machine and she wants me to get one for her.

“All you have to do is select any of the settings you want and get going on any of the various stitches you want.”

Gordon, who creates her own designs of valences, drapery, quilts, bed covers and more, explained that the machine can perform the same functions of an industrial machine and more.

She explained that some features that the light weight and low-priced machines can perform, such as the button hole stitch, cannot be performed by most industrial machines.

“And the price of this machine is a steal. $699 is not a bad price to pay for this machine.”

Prices for the Brother sewing machines range from $599 to $899, and persons purchasing machines during Monday’s demonstration at Courts, will receive a five per cent discount.

“I highly recommend this sewing machine to anyone who wants to get into sewing; if you are into dressmaking and want to put embroidery on your clothes,” Gordon said.

“This is a real machine. And persons who like sewing should definitely come to Courts to get one.”

Senior marketing officer at Courts Alexis John said that his company is giving the average individual the opportunity to pursue their dreams of becoming fashion designers, as well as continue the tradition of do-it-yourself tailoring.

He said that this was being done by making the Brother sewing machines available at such affordable prices.

“In these times, we at Courts are giving our customers the opportunity to invest in a product that can save them tons of cash, when they design and produce for themselves their own clothing and other household items for their bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens.

“We aim to help our customers bring value home, and maintain an age-old tradition of having a sewing machine in the house, like our mothers did, with the purchase of one of our Brother sewing machines,” John said.

The machines are available in BM 2800, BM 3700, BM 3850, and LS 2125 series.
