Description

When you’re first starting out, you want things to go smoothly – enter the Brother Innov-is A16 Sewing Machine. This model is great for making sewing simpler. Its fuss-free features, such as its 1-step needle threader, quick set drop in bobbin and slide speed control all help make your craftwork easier. Plus, its needle up/down button is ideal for pivoting corners.

This machine’s electronic jog dial also allows you to select each of its 16 pre-set stitches with ease, while its automatic threading system takes the hassle out of an ordinarily frustrating task. And when it comes to the fabrics it can deal with, its smooth, strong feed system and extra needle offer penetration and power to tackle multiple layers and even heavier fabrics such as denim.

Sewing machines aren’t always designed with the needs of the aspiring sewer in mind. But with the Brother Innov-is A16, we’ve created the perfect machine to learn your craft on. Easy to use? Absolutely. Fewer features as a result? Absolutely not.
