Brother LS2125i Lightweight Sewing Machine Review

The Brother LS2125i Easy-to-Use Lightweight Basic 10-Stitch Sewing Machine is yet another durable and user-friendly model from Brother. The LS2125i is made for a beginner who’s not yet ready for a huge selection of function and capability in a sewing machine, or a seasoned sewer who wants an easily portable basic machine.

The buyer gets quite a lot for the under $100 price. It comes with ten included stitches, which cover all of the basic needs any sewer will encounter, an automatic buttonholer which makes attachment of new buttons extremely easy, and the capability to reverse direction with the flip of a lever. It’s also portable – with a folding handle built into the chassis, a weight of under 16 pounds, and a small frame of 15″ x 6″ x 11 3/5″

The Brother LS2125i Sewing Machine received rave reviews from the vast majority of reviewers on That’s not surprising. Like all of their machines, this Brother Basic Sewing Machine is designed from the perspective of the user. Even beginner reviewers love the fact that they can start sewing right out of the box. And everyone appreciates the trademark Brother sleek design that allows for easy conversion from the flatbed standard to the free-arm sew surface necessary for sleeves, hems, and other tight spots.

All of the basics are covered in this 10-stitch, multiple function machine. They include hem, zigzag, elastic, straight, and satin stitches. Furthermore, even those who don’t need the automatic buttonholer in their daily use appreciate that it will be there for them if ever they do need it. The tension dial, quick-bobbin wind, well-lit sewing area, and easy-snap foot changing system are a few other features that engender the happiness people feel, and express, at having bought the Brother 10-Stitch Sewing Machine.

Still, as with some other Brother models, a smaller percentage complain of problems. With tangle and bobbin issues mentioned sporadically, one gets the feeling that there is a slight quality-control issue at Brother, as a rare negative review about a malfunctioning machine punctuates the sterling reviews of the others. And yet, others mention that they too had problems until they carefully read the instructions. The instructions themselves are a source of complaint, as they are in multiple languages and can lead to confusion. And yet this problem too has its solution, as a creative user simply highlighted the English language version and had no further problems.

All in all, however, even those who were unhappy with these minor issues generally gave the machine high reviews, citing its low price and high capability, as well as its light and portable design. More than one user mentioned using this machine for years without the slightest problem, and being extremely happy with the Brother Lightweight Sewing Machine. For an under-$100 machine, the LS2125i does seem to give tremendous value, providing its users with years of basic, high-quality use.
