Portability a Plus But a Lightweight for Frequent Use
The LS2125I isn't a "sew-and-go" machine, for the most part. It's a mechanical machine, so it must be cared for like a mechanical machine.
The user guide and online support make it easy for you to learn how to oil your sewing machine, for weekly maintenance.
However, if you have had any experience with maintaining sewing machines, you'll know that periodic servicing of this machine will cost about as much as the machine itself.
Brother sewing machines like the LS 2125I, that are intended for light duty or occasional use, are notorious for being temperamental.
If you want the best performance out of this machine, it's worth putting in the time to develop good sewing habits.
Use the proper needle for the fabric you are sewing, and make sure you start each new project with a fresh needle.
Use the correct bobbin type for the case--while the machine accepts standard S-type bobbins, some users seem to have better luck with the Brother brand bobbins--your mileage may vary.
Don't skimp on thread! Use good-quality thread, and use the same type of thread through both needle and bobbin.
To ease your frustrations with the LS2125I's sensitive thread tension, be prepared to sew some seams on scrap fabric until you find the right thread tension. Don't experiment on your project!

Good For A 10 Year-Old Or a 10-Year Veteran
