Brother company is a serious competitor for all sewing machine manufacturers.
The fundamental difference from other manufacturers relates directly to the production of machines. Brother focuses on a wide range, low prices, a large number of operations in each model and relative execution simplicity. Today the main Brother production capacity is located in China. High production volumes are reflected in affordable prices for all models of sewing machines. The main Brother priorities are: consistently high quality of products, continuous expansion of functionality and qualitative service. Brother slogan is “Being on the customer side.” Strict quality control is a guarantee of high quality of each product, produced in Brother factories.
Electromechanical sewing machines are cheap and easy to use. They are driven by an electric drive, but the basic operations are performed mechanically. With the help of mechanical switches and controls, located on the machine, one can change the stitch length, stitch width, strength, thread tension and presser foot pressure on the fabric. Such models perform about 10-20 operations, including decorative stitches and special lines for knitwear. An experienced buyer selects more complex models of electromechanical sewing machines with 10-25 operations to sew clothes with different decorative stitches. Electromechanical sewing machines are the most simple, but comfortable, allowing to learn sewing without hassle. They are not designed for daily work as they have a lightweight mechanism. For example, instead of smooth adjustment of stitch length and width they have only few fixed positions.
You can put your trust in this easy to use sewing machine that is built around the values that you know and expect from a Brother company. This machine fits the bill perfectly.
