Brother Designio Series DZ820E is a machine that ushers embroidery enthusiasts to a whole new world of embroidering possibilities. As opposed to the other machines that combine both sewing and embroidery, this machine is only dedicated to embroidery work. It is one of the best embroidery machines in 2016 particularly for beginners in embroidery. Being made by Brother, a reputable brand in sewing and embroidery, this machine has all the blessings of a brand that has established itself and is well known for its quality customer care and support service. There are lots of features that will make this machine a go-to in 2016 and some of its outstanding features are discussed below.
An Expansive Embroidery Area
Brother Designio Series DZ820E has one of the biggest embroidery areas measuring 5 x 7 inches. By all standards, working on such an enormous embroidery area gives you the flexibility to undertake any embroidery project with a lot of ease.
Unlike in the other machines that rely only on the designs that are built on them, this machine allows you to add into its library of embroidery designs by importing other designs from around the web including iBroidery.com which has over 5000 unique designs. This allows you to explore any kind of designing without the limitations that come with other embroidery machines.
Backlit LCD Touch Screen
Embroidery is more about the visual and hence you need to give your designs such an attractive finish. The LCD screen display that comes with this machine measures 1.4 x 2.7 inches. It is backlit meaning you can view the designs even when the area you are in is dimly lit. The screen display allows you to view the tutorials which are built into the machine as well as explore the design editing feature.
Built-In Memory Pockets
If you need to store designs in your machine memory for future use, this feature will come into play. The memory is large enough to give you ample storage space for your designs to avoid the back and forth that comes with choosing designs. Also, since the machine has lots of designs, having a select view saved somewhere in your memory can help you save your time because you will not reinvent the wheel.
A Well Lit Work Area
When working on dark fabrics or in dimly lit areas, you will appreciate the role played by the LED lighting on your machine. Embroidery is about details and as such, you need a well-lit area that will allow you to see every stitch and dot on your embroidered fabric. This will allow you to accurately embroider a pattern irrespective of how delicate it is. Brother also ensured that the lighting of this machine does not strain your eyes by installing the LED lights.
Drop in Top Bobbin Set Up
Any person who embroiders will tell you how tedious it is to set up the bobbin and to ensure it is in its place always. This machine has the drop in top bobbin set up mechanism that resists jam and helps your bobbin to stay in place. This mechanism is very reliable and will save you a lot of time.
Advanced Easy Needle Threading System
The Brother Designio Series DZ820E Embroidery Only Machine has a threading system that is much more advanced as well as a thread trimming feature. This system lets you push the thread through the needle with just a single press on the lever. Threading being a time consuming task, this system saves you a lot of time.
136 Designs and 120 Frame Patterns
Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished embroiderer, one of the areas where your focus will be concentrated on is on the number of designs that come with your machine. While 136 designs may seem fewer especially for the talented embroiderer, this machine comes with an additional 200 designs that are included in a compact disc which is shipped together with the machine. On top of this, the machine allows you to connect to the web and download thousands of designs to use in your embroidery projects. The frame patterns are to help you in giving your designs a unique look. This is particularly important in the generation we are living in where everything seems a copycat.
When embroidering, at times it becomes necessary to include letters. When this happens, you need a machine that can support lettering fonts. While many embroiderers take this for granted, not every machine out there gives you the benefit of lettering fonts. This is why the Brother Designio Series DZ820E Embroidery Only Machine is one of the best embroidery machine in 2016.
Although Brother machines are relatively easy to use, the company doesn’t take chances on the understandability and interpretation of its machines. This is why every machine that rolls off its production line comes with a manual written in both English and Spanish. This enables you as a beginner to quickly set up your machine and explore the various features the machine has. When used together with built-in tutorials, the manuals enhance the ease of operating the machine.
Any embroidery machine worth its salt usually comes with a set of accessories which gives you a backup kit just in case your supplies run out and you haven’t made arrangements to replace. Among the accessories that come with this machine include a small and large screwdriver, bobbins, scissors, spool cap, spool net, embroidery bobbin thread, and a needle set.
25-Year Limited Warranty
Despite the fact that this machine is built to last, chances are it may experience a breakdown due to heavy usage or a mechanical problem. Brother Designio Series DZ820E comes with a 25-year limited warranty which means you literally have the entire lifespan of the machine covered by warranty. This shifts your mind from thinking about machine damages into concentrating on your embroidery design work.
To enjoy the most from this machine, you should ensure that you constantly visit Brother’s website to learn more on new releases and troubleshooting tips. The company recommends that if the machine is to be used in countries that do not support 120 volts ac then you need a voltage adapter.
