Brother Innovis 80 for Sale

I recently bought a new machine at a quilt and sewing show, so that means I need to sell a couple of my sewing machines to make room for Ethel, my new sewing machine.

I have 2 Brother sewing machines for sale and will post them in 2 different postings so as not to confuse you.

This machine is the Brother Innovis 80, (also known as NS80) a limited edition Project Runway sewing machine that has served me very well since I bought her brand new at my local Brother dealer in May 2009. This machine sold new for over $700. I am selling her for $300.

She comes with several presser feet, a hard cover (which I forgot to photograph), 5 bobbins, screw drivers and a couple of extra feet I purchased (a walking foot, an open toe applique foot are extra).

This machine has THE BEST needle threader I have ever used on any machine and wish I could put it on all my other machines, it is that great!

She stitches nicely and I even had started making a stitch book of her stitches. I have them all stitched out for you to see how each stitch looks. You can combine stitches to give you even more stitches and of course widen and lengthen or shorten the stitches as well for more looks.

The buttonhole maker is great. You place the button in the presser foot and it automatically stitches the right size button. If you have larger buttons that do not fit, no worries, you can stitch those too, just without the button in the holder.

There are some really really nice stitches on this machine and I have used them for my decorative stitching on flaps of bags and other things too.

There is a free arm that can be slid off, but it is still too wide to use the free arm on some things like a sleeve cuff. It works well on pant cuffs though.

There is a tool drawer to hold your presser feet and screw drivers and things too.

I stitched a quilted cover for the instruction manual using some of the decorative stitches on this machine. I also took a class from the dealer and stitched some of the various functions that are in the red folder, along with other useful info like choosing needles, etc.

The foot pedal can be plugged in and used to sew, or unplug it and push the button fro sewing without a foot pedal. It's your choice. There is a sliding slow to faster speed lever too that you can use whether you sew with or without the foot pedal.

In all the years I have owned this Brother, I have never had a problem at all sewing with her. She sews so nicely and makes wonderful stitches. This machine doesn't com up for sale very often if at all. Probably because it is a great machine and because it was a limited edition so only made for a couple for years or so.

Do not confuse Brother machines like this one that was purchased at an authorized Brother dealer to those cheaper Brother machines you can buy at Walmart and Amazon, etc. The dealer machines are quality machines and made to last. The cheap machines you can find for next to nothing on Craigslist and Facebook Market Place because they do not last or sew as well. This is true for other machine brands too. The dealers have to stand behind their products and that is why they sell the quality machines only.

I am posting this machine for sale locally on Craigslist and Facebook Market Place, with links to my blog here to get more information about this machine. I can sell it to anyone in the USA if you pay an additional $55 for shipping. So $300 + $55 shipping for a total of $355. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii the shipping will be more.

Thanks for looking. Email me if interested

  1. Brother makes a great machine. $300 is a great price for this one. Good luck with the sale.

  2. A-L-M-O-S-T tempted!! Would LOVE a machine where you don't have to be a rocket scientist to make a button hole!! Good luck, Daryl! I'm sure she will find a home quickly. Jackie
