If your wanting a no nonsense sewing machine that’s very well manufactured, reliable and has many usable features for every day use, look no further than the Brother Innovis A16.

It is an easy machine to use and will suit most users from a starter sewer to an expert dressmaker. With 16 stitch functions it covers all the main stitch types for example, straight, zigzag, blind hemming, overedge, stretch stitching and 3 different types of one-step buttonhole. Other stitches can be used for quilt making, mending or home decor jobs.

As you can see from the images, this Brother A16 has the LCD screen, which displays the stitch width and length, both are preset for each stitch as soon as it is selected via the dial. Width can be overridden in standard settings from 0 – 7 mm wide and length form 0 – 4 mm.

Turning the stitch selection dial shows the selected stitch in the window and the recommended presser foot to be used.

We also love the advanced needle threader the Innovis A16 offers. It is far superior to the regular  auto needle threaders on most sewing machines. Brothers A16 threading system can be used to thread the machine in seconds...and with only one hand, even through the needle eye!

Time saving feature (Fast And Simple Threading) F,A,S,T bobbin winding system, not only is it speedy but again has a thread cutting blade built in to snip the thread...saves getting the scissors out..!

Other functions to make stitching fun:

Bright LED lights directly above the needle working area. Needle up/down function.
Needle stop position - Set the machine to stop with the needle lowered in to the fabric or not.
Speed limiter for precision, peace of mind and complete control.
Lock stitch button.
Reverse sewing button.
Start/stop button to sew with using the foot control.
F.A.S.T. bobbin winding system.

    It's easy to buy a sewing machine on line - what is really important is the customer service that follows. I was delighted with my new Brother innovis A16 but accidentally damaged the spool winder. I returned it to Whitley Bay they fixed it and returned it promptly. Helpful on the phone and in the shop thoroughly recommend them.

    I am thrilled with the Innovis A16. Very easy to set up, the instruction book is very straightforward to follow and I love the instructions printed on the machine. I had at first ordered a different machine but returned it as I found the tension very hard to get right and the automatic needle threader proved extremely difficult. The Innovis arrived very promptly; the needle threader is far easier to use and the tension is set accurately and produces a much better line of stitching. Lots of great features and I am a convert to not using the foot pedal! It's a fabulous replacement for a 40-year-old machine that finally packed up and I'm over the moon!! Excellent service - thank you!

    I purchased the Innovis A16 as the other models I wanted were out of stock and what a wonderful addition to our household it has been. It is easy to set up, runs smoothly and I love the needle threading feature. The ability to use the stop/start feature but also at different speeds allows my 10 year old to make herself some dolls clothes.
    A very good purchase.
