Review

[E] The Brother Simply Creative SB3129 is the lowest priced model that has a start/stop function that allows you to stitch without a foot pedal. You’d have to pay at least $300 more for another model that has that function. This also is the only model that’s in this price range that allows you to create stitches and save them to the sewing machine’s memory.
