Brother Innovis F420 Sewing Machine
Why choose the Brother Innov-is F420?
Following on from the success of the 350SE, this new Brother Innovis F420 has all the delights of it's predecessor plus the addition of extra alphabets and larger LCD screen size, 73 x 40mm. Being computerised, it is so easy to use, with touch-button controls and pre-programmed stitches.
Other new features include:
• Extra stitches, now over 140 decorative plus 3 extra lettering styles, now 5 fonts.
• LED light about the working area.
• Larger screen with more information available.
• Lockstitch button, to tie-in threads at the beginning and end of a seam automatically.
• SFDS – more about this feature later!
• More computer control over stitches, now you can return to the start of a pattern at the touch of a button.
• Now you can store extra stitches in to the (pocket button) machine memory.
Bring fresh style to your home whilst using this Brother F420 and be sure of the very best stitch every time. The Innovis F420 puts all the function buttons at your fingertips in one convenient, easy-to-use touch pad operation panel.
Making your stitch selections could not be easier. Simply key in the number of the pre programmed stitch you would like to use. This is your sewing control centre. The most frequently used stitches, like zigzag, straight, blind hem, ricrac, triple straight stretch and slant stretch have their own place on the touch panel. Each will allow you to sew perfect seams on any weights of fabric thanks to automatic foot pressure.
SFDS or Square Feed Drive System, is the new way to move or feed the materials forwards of backwards under the presser foot whilst sewing a seam giving you precise fabric handling. The wider and longer feed dogs, in conjunction with the longer sewing foot, gives better fabric control while stitching...meaning that silky dress that needs shorting can now be sewn with ease; the heavy curtains that were put to one side because your last sewing machine could not manage the thicknesses can now be finished off on the F420, without undue stress on the machine or the user.
Highlight functions include:
• Up to 7 mm decorative stitch width.
• Upper and lower thread cutting at the touch of a button.
• Advanced needle threading system.
• Maximum sewing speed setting.
• Hard plastic protective cover.
• My custom stitch, allows you to create your very own stitch designs.
• Electronic foot speed controller or control the speed by button.
• Needle up/down button.
• Lockstitch button.
• Reverse continues or at the touch of a button.
• Quickset bobbin and winder.
• Knee lifter.
I love the ability to store my favourite stitches The F420 has 15 memory positions to store personal stitches or custom stitches you have created. Instead of having to remember mock hand quilting stitch is mode 1 stitch number 23, or Cross stitch is mode 2 stitch number 52, or stipple stitch is mode 3 stitch number 18, I save them as "my favourite stitch" 1, 2 and 3. So, so easy.
Not only does this Brother sewing machine come with a twin needle, at the touch of a button it will convert to twin needle settings!
Electronic Stitch Formation, means electronic movement of the stepper motors that control the pattern formation allows for perfectly formed patterns every time.
One customer said “Great machine. Very easy to use with quality stitches. Had Brother previously and was pleased with that one too. This one is an upgrade and I am really enjoying all the new features.” And another said “Great sewing machine. Automatic thread cutting and threading is fantastic. Loads of great stitches to choose from” and we say “yes, we recommend it”

I had the brother f420 bought for me , what a machine ! It’s the best machine I Have used to date and getting the free kit was just another BONUS !, It’s fantastic, my son said applying for finance was so easy and quick the company were brilliant.
The machine came 48 hours later I didn’t get a text or email saying when it would be delivered but I was so excited when I opened the door!
Will not shop anywhere else for my machines now, really friendly and helpful people this company really knows how to treat the customer right ! 5*
My daughter is delighted with this machine and the free quilting kit that came with.
I haven’t used the machine so can’t comment on it’s performance.
The service from sewing machine sales was great and the machine arrived the next day- excellent
Omg what a brilliant machine I love it. It is so smooth and quite. It so many different stitches on it which I'm only just getting to grips with. It has two bright lights on the machine. Love the touch screen which is easy to use. The automatic thread cutter and needle threader are amazing. Love the fact you get a embroidery kit which has more things to work with, I think the price is great for what you get, this site was so easy to shop from great communication and brilliant fast delivery. I have so much to learn about the machine and can't wait to start sewing. I would highly recommend this machine. I had the brother fs40 but wanted a upgrade and that's what I have got. So overall a fantastic machine and shopping experience. Now let's get seeing
A beautiful sewing machine that is easy to use, has a lovely smooth action. Love it. A big thank you to the shop assistant for bring the F420 to my attention
Love this machine, needle threader, needle down, thread cutter. Knee lifter. Great storage for feet and room for extras like walking foot, free motion foot etc. Easy to use, still working my way through the manual. A shame there isn’t a video guide too.
Wow. And wow again! After consultation with a lovely lad on the help desk I took the plunge and ordered this machine and it does not disappoint. Fast, easy to use, lots of little extras....first class all round.
I have found the machine very good it has everything I was looking for, I am still trying to get used to the computer side if it but enjoying the challenge.
