SB3129 Simplicity® by Brother™ Computerized Sewing Machine – Review

If you have been following my video tutorials for a while you have probably seen me use a few other Brother™sewing machines in the past.  This week I get to review the SB3129 Simplicity® by Brother™ Computerized Sewing Machine.

The SB3129 is part of the Simplicity® by Brother™Limited Edition line of sewing machines. There are 5 machines in this collection and you can learn more about each one HERE.

In this review I’ll show you:
• what is included in the box
• extra goodies you get
• my favorite features
• the types of fabrics you can sew with it
• how to do free motion quilting with it
• where you can buy one
• the price
• some decorative stitch options
• sample fonts it stitches out
• and much more!

Note: I want to correct something I say in the video because it was only recently that I realized the Simplicity pattern that was included with the machine can be exchanged for a larger size if you need it.  So, if you’re like me and need a commercial sewing pattern larger than a size 12 then you can contact Simplicity at to exchange the included pattern for the next size range – P5 which includes sizes 12-20.  Very good to know!

{Disclaimer: Brother™ has provided me with the SB3129, but all opinions expressed are entirely my own.}

    Thank you for the review! I ended up buying this machine and was glad to find your review when I was trying to decide which machine to buy. It was a good refresher of what I saw in the store.

      Hi. I am new to sewing and before I even saw this video I went to an authorized dealer and bought the brother simplicity Ltd edition sb530t and I am doing well with it. I so far have just made a few of your drawstring bags and tomorrow I am going to Tryout the dustcover tutorial! What do you think of this line in general? A smart purchase on my part?

    I have the highrst end of the brother simpkicity and I love love love it! I enjoyed your presentation and sincerity. Also, I have made your pillow cases (lots of them), business card holder, and iron board cover (using insul bright and batting), so easy and fun to give as gifts. Thanks for all you do for me
