Disaster after three months
My Brother Strong and Tough mechanical sewing machine was breaking the thread because the thread was getting stuck in threading area #3. Now there is no way to remove the thread stuck in that area and I guess I will have to take it to a service shop. So much for Strong and Tough after just three months of light use.

Worst machine ever
I bought this machine in March 2020 to replace an older brother model. I absolutely hate it. The side thread just gets caught over and over and I am re-threading the needle a hundred times an hour. I had to tape the spool to the handle to prevent this from happening. As far as durability, Even though it’s “strong & tough”, it’s no different than my older model. I am disappointed, what’s waste of my money. If I could return it I absolutely would. I will need to buy a different machine so I do not deal with this aggravation.

Hi, Oh no! That's not what we like to hear. I can understand your disappointment. I'd like to help. Try placing the spool cap on the spool of thread to prevent the thread from getting caught. Follow the steps in the link below to prevent the thread from out of the needle. https://help.brother-usa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/74997
Good reliable sewing machine
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have never used a sewing machine before but my mother has been making clothes and such with her sewing machine for over thirty years. When I received this Brother sewing machine I asked my mother to try it and give me a quick demonstration. It seemed relatively easy and she said it is a good sewing machine. I will probably get a better hang of it after a lot more practice.

Easy to use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted this sewing machine to sew simple things like curtains and pillow covers. I have always struggled with sewing machines in the past - something always seems to go wrong. I was very happy with how easy it was to get this machine set up. The directions and quick start guide were simple to understand and I had started my first project within thirty minutes with no problems. I like that the machine makes everything very easy and intuitive. And it seems very durable which is a must at my house. I am looking forward to many more projects with this machine.

Stands up to it name - Strong & Tough
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After using it twice (on two separate and different items), I'm pleased with the results. My first sewing project was to repair a pair of chainsaw chaps. Layers of material(s) 3/8" to 1/2" thick to have to go through and it did the sewing right out of the box like a charm! The second project was to fix the elastic in a cap that I wear and it did that great too. Dials are easy to use, threading was a piece of cake and I really like how the printed steps of how to do threading is on the machine, wonderful idea. I'm not enthralled with the color of the LED light, I personally like a warm toned light and I'm thinking it could be a tad brighter. If I had my preference, I would like a pouch that holds all of the small components to be made out of either a different, thicker plastic/vinyl or even natural fabric. I don't see that lasting long with use. I really like the placement of the lever to the foot, easier to use. Its a simple, no fancy computer, strong and tough sewing machine that thus far, I am quite pleased with.

I'm in love with this machine!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I will admit, I am not the spectacular seamstress that I wish I could be, but this machine has honestly been such an eye opener for me! I have tried other machines before and felt so overwhelmed with everything, it felt like I was destined to hand sew things for the rest of my life. However, when this Brother machine arrived, I was truly amazed. Right out of the box it was so simple to set up and use. Instructions were very clear and included not only written instructions, but a DVD as well. I don't have the best eyesight, so the brightness of the light with the ease of the auto threading needle won me over right away. It made everything else frustration free and I could focus on my project! I love that there are many more stitching options than I have seen before on a manual machine and I can't say enough about the heavy duty spring action foot! I tested it on a thick piece of canvas fabric and it took on the job with ease without jamming or dropping stitches! With the bobbin thread cutter and seam/thread cutter near the needle, I feel like I didn't really need to supply any of my own tools which is a big win for me. Overall, I believe this machine is perfect whether you're more of a novice like myself or a seasoned pro. I think anyone can enjoy it's many easy to use features.

Not as sturdy as it should be.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was very happy to try this sewing machine, as i am a seasonal sewer and have been sewing since i was 18. When i opened the box , i was a little disappointed to find out that it was not up to the mark made up, and its all plastic and nothing else. The spool holder , bobbin case and the needle threader are all plastic and seems like it will break easily if mishandled ever. The machine is no doubt light weighted and can easy be carried anywhere but the 'plasticky' model is taking it off. Also the LED bulb is not so bright ,its really very dim and seems useless. I really wanted to like this machine but when i tried it on tougher fabrics like denim and stretchy fabrics like jersey, i faced alot of stitches being skipped. I absolutely liked how it worked on basic fabrics , but its not for thicker ones. I wish this machine also had a slight bigger working area/ a expandable one to keep the fabric firm while while sewing. Overall i will recommend this machines for basic sewing ,but not for professional.

Top rated sewing machine!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When it comes to a sewing machine I typically go for an easy to use/user friendly machine. Recently my daughter took on sewing so I was excited to try a new sewing machine. They have come a long way! I absolutely love this sewing machine! It has a very easy threading system and stitch selector. For the stitch selector you simply turn a dial located on the side! This sewing machine works easily through heavyweight fabrics like denim which is very important to me because I do sew clothing. This machine also has an automatic needle threader which is so nice, especially for my daughter who is a beginner. This machine makes a very nice stitch, and it has new innovative options for easy sewing, one of them being an awesome easy button applicator. I will say this machine seems to have everything I need to make my sassy boutique clothing! Oh and one more thing, it is grandmother approved!

Lives up to the Strong & Tough name!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This machine is a sewing workhorse and it really lives up to the name Strong & Tough! It works well on a variety of thicker fabric types and easily sews several layers when quilting. It sews lightweight fabrics well too, which is something even my expensive fancy machines don't do well. The machine is a good size with plenty of room to work and adequate lighting. The ST371HD is easy to use and the settings are fairly self-explanatory, so I don't need to dig out the manual every time I sit down to sew.
by Jami
My machine is only about 2 years old and seldom used. After using the reverse lever, the machine is stuck in reverse. I would like to know if there is a part that needs to be ordered to fix it because taking my machine to a repairman requires a 4 hour round trip. Where can I find a machine diagram of this machine's parts?
