Brother Innovis A16 Sewing Machine
Why choose the Brother Innov-is A16?
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..!
