The Brother CS770 and the Singer SEQS-6700 are two of the most popular affordable sewing machines we will compare today. In addition to being packed with features in an affordable price range, these two sewing machines produced excellent stitch quality.
What are the major differences between them? Here I will try to answer them as simply as possible.
Brother CS770 vs. Singer SEQS-6700: Comparison in Features
Sewing Machine Types
The Brother CS770 is a computerized sewing machine, while the Singer SEQS-6700 is a sewing and embroidery combo machine. Since the machine types decide they differ a lot in features, I won’t make a suggestion.
Choose wisely depends on your sewing goal and skill levels.
Brother CS770 vs. Singer SEQS-6700 : Built-in Stitches
The Brother CS770 sewing machine comes with an attractive amount of built-in stitches, 40 to be exact. Within those 40 stitches you can find standard stitches, decorative stitches and easy-to-use buttonhole stitches. While the Singer SEQS-6700 features 215 stitches. Similar to the Brother CS770, these stitches include standard and decorative stitches.
The Brother CS770 doesn’t come with a start/stop button, while the Singer SEQS-6700 does. One of the best ways of controlling some of your variables within free motion quilting is by using your start/stop button.
Speed Control Slider
The Singer SEQS-6700 sewing machine arrives with a speed control slider while the Brother CS770 sewing machine doesn’t. A speed control slide is a useful feature that allows you to set the maximum speed you are comfortable with.
Automatic Needle Threader
Many sewing machines sold today come with an automatic threader function. This is essentially a lever that will guide the thread through the eye of your sewing needle for you so that you don’t have to do it yourself. Many sewists prefer to thread their own needles, but if you have difficulty performing this task, then a machine with an automatic needle threader might be very useful for you. Fortunately, these two sewing machines both come with automatic needle threader, allowing you to thread the machine with ease.
The advantage of easy drop-in, top load bobbins is that you can readily see how much thread is left on the bobbin through the window. You do not have to remove the bobbin case to insert a new bobbin, and you do not have to remove the accessory tray from the free arm to change bobbins. Both the Brother CS770 and the Singer SEQS-6700 come with this user-friendly feature.
The most common type of feeding mechanism in a home sewing machine (and some industrial machines) is the drop feed, also known as the regular feed system. Both Brother CS770 and Singer SEQS-6700 come equipped with a drop feed system, which grabs the fabric and moves it along through the machine.
There is free arm on both the Brother CS770 and the Singer SEQS-6700. The free arm is a very useful feature to all sewing machines as it makes sewing one layer of fabric without catching another. This is because all of the workings around the bobbin race, feed dogs, and needles are housed there.

Brother CS770 Video Review
Singer SEQS-6700 Video Review
Both of these sewing machines come from fantastic companies, but they are particularly difficult to choose between. Based on their features, my overall recommendation would be to choose the machine that comes with more built-in stitches at an affordable price.
Q. Do you need a special sewing machine for leather?
A. No, although a heavy-duty machine will make it easier. However, any good-quality home sewing machine can handle leather with a few special accessories. You will need a Teflon presser foot, a needle designed for sewing leather, and heavy-duty thread.
Q. How much electricity does a sewing machine use
A. A typical home sewing machine may be in the 100-watt range. One estimate for portable sewing machines says that you are paying about 0.013 cents per hour every time. For the day you may be spending about 10 cents.
Q. What are features to look for in a sewing machine?
A. The best features will depend on the type of sewing you plan to do. For a beginner, some features to look for include built-in stitch types, an automatic needle threader, a top drop-in bobbin, and a set of standard presser feet.
Q. Can i use 3 in 1 oil on my sewing machine
A. You shouldn’t use cooking oil or automotive oil in your machine, since doing so may clog the gears and damage any fabric used in the machine. Also, 3-in-1 oil is not suitable for sewing machines, according to Threads magazine.
Q. Are sewing machines dangerous?
A. Like any machine, a sewing machine can be dangerous if not used correctly. Always follow the safety guidelines provided by the manufacturer when it comes to maintenance, and pay attention while sewing.
Q. Why use a bobbin on a sewing machine
A. In general, the bobbin is the thing that feeds the thread to stitch from the lower part of the machine. Its purpose is to hold the thread below the needle, and it is where the thread in which you stitch comes from.
