Innov-is A16 sewing machine

Sewing machines aren’t always designed with the needs of the aspiring sewer in mind. But with the 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.

Where to buy

Overview

When you’re first starting out, you want things to go smoothly – enter the Innov-is A16.

The Innov-is A16 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.

At Brother, we have over 100 years’ experience in guiding aspiring sewers. And with its choice of three 1-step automatic buttonholes and back-lit LCD screen, the Innov-is A16 is all geared up to help you complete your fun sewing projects in no time.
