Brother A16


The A16 is a good balance of quality meets simplicity. Stitch selection is done with the comfortable and familiar feeling of turning a dial, but that’s all you need to do – stitch width and length settings are all taken care of. Keeping the number of stitches to just 16 makes the machine less complex to use, and keeps the price lower, and all of the stitches  are functional ones that you’ll use. This is our recommended machine on the market at the $500 price point – RRP is $525.

Not Local?

Thanks for thinking of us! Mike and I strongly believe that a sewing machine needs the support of a local retailer, especially when it comes to your warranty. Because of this, we don’t ship our machines. If you’d like to find a dealer near you (and we really encourage you to) you can Click HERE to find out your nearest JANOME dealer, or Click HERE to find out your nearest BROTHER dealer.
