Brother PQ1500s For Sale

I am selling my Brother PQ1500s sewing machine. Since I added the LED light bulb, it is just like the Brother PQ 1500sl (the "L" stands for LED). I have had this machine since I bought her new over 10 years ago from my local Brother dealer and she is one heck of a workhorse that can sew through thick layers like butter! I use her for piecing and quilting and bag making. She only straight stitches, but does it so well and fast.



I never thought I would ever ever sell her, but I bought a similar new machine and just do not need 2 nearly identical machines. If she doesn't sell I will keep her as a backup machine, but right now I do not have the space to set her up and sew with her. She has been recently serviced and runs so smoothly.



She comes with a lot of presser feet too. Plus an extension table, a knee lift and a soft cover. Instruction book, foot pedal and cord of course too.



The Brother PQ1500s and sl machine is very similar to other straight stitch semi industrial machines such as the Juki TL2010Q, Pfaff Grand Quilter, Janome 1600, Singer S16, Babylock Jane, Elna 7100. Some of those machines have a needle plate to cover the feed dogs when free motion quilting, but the on the Brother, you just turn the lever to drop the feed dogs.



The Brother PQ 1500s also has a pin feed system which is great and helps move the fabric along as you sew. I have used it instead of a walking foot at times. It does have a walking foot too.



It is a very easy machine to use and sews fast! 1500 rpm, so if you are piecing or quilting and want to go fast, just floor it.




Being a high shank machine and having a large throat space, you can quilt using this machine as is or mount it to a frame like the HandiQuilter frame and then it will quilt more like a long arm machine.

I am selling her for $400. I would like to sell this locally (Albuquerque area), because it would cost a lot to ship it as she is heavy. I am sure the shipping would be around $100.
