Brother CS 6000i 2 Accessories
Do you do automatic label sewing machine. Let’s talk about accessories. The accessories are the best part of any new machine. What do you get with it? We’ll just start opening these up and I’ll lay them out. First off, you have a buttonhole foot. We’ll later show you how to do buttonholes because you’ve got them built in to the machine here. We’ll show you that you put a button in here and it does the exact length that you need based on the size of the button that you put in. A seam ripper. Remember your seam ripper. It has a cover. Put that cover on the end so it has a longer handle instead of something short to hold on to. Some tools for unscrewing certain areas of the machine. This is a thread stand, another spindle so that will fit up on the top there as we need them. Needles. Yes, you will have a variety of needles with the machine. You’re going to find that any of the traditional sewing machine needles will work. You need to adjust the needle to your fabric.
If you are using a smaller needle, you need to make sure that you are using thinner thread. Just because you have one needle doesn’t mean you can use it with every spool of thread. Most people just think, oh, I’ve got a new needle in and it works with the fabric. They forget to make sure, does that threat fit in there. Our feet. We have a standard foot on the machine. This one is slightly larger and it has a groove or a cutout on it. We’ll use this foot for the stitches that are decorative that are heavy. Those are the ones that look like they’re sat in stitched. They’re filled in. We need a place for that filled in area to slide out the back so it doesn’t get hung up on the foot.
That’s a decorative stitch foot. That one says letter ‘N’. We have letter ‘R’. That’s a blind hem foot. We’ll show you a couple different uses for it. ‘M’ is a button sew-on foot. Love the 2 blue holders for holding buttons in place so they don’t slide away when you’re trying to sew a button on. Your zipper foot, you’ll notice that you can actually attach it on the left side or the right side depending on what side of the zipper you’re using. You may move your needle position accordingly to make sure you don’t hit the foot as you go. Double needle. You actually have 3 needle packs in here. You have a total of 3 bobbins.
There’s 2 in my hand and then 1 comes in the machine. What you have here is a class 15 bobbin, but it’s the plastic version. Make sure that you don’t pick up class 15 metal. The plastic ones, that is what this machine is weighted for. A metal bobbin is heavier so the tension is not set up for a metal bobbin. Make sure you don’t mix and match from other machines. Make sure you stick with a true class 15 plastic bobbin. This ‘G’ foot is an over lock foot and it has actually a little guide here so that will help you keep going nice and straight. Hey, one more bobbin so we have a total of4 there. We have a little brush to go along with that. We’re going to get threaded up next and we’ll show you how to wind a bobbin and thread and use your needle threader correctly.
One more thing, remember that separate bag we pulled out when we opened up the box? That has your walking foot in it. This is great for working with fabrics that want to slip around, fleeces, some of the minky cuddle, and if you’re working with anything with batting, put the walking foot on. You also have in here a guide that will fit on to the walking foot that will slip in here. We’ll show you how to get this actually on your machine and how to utilize the guide for all its purposes. You also have a free motion quilting foot.
