The Brother DZ2400 is an affordable computerized sewing machine. It contains 185 stitches, versatile for many projects. In addition to that, except for sewing, this model also works for quilting.
The Brother Designio Series DZ2400 computerized sewing & quilting machine is 11.48-inch wide and 16.02-inch tall. It also weighs less than 10 pounds. As you can see, it’s portable enough to be easily carried around.
This model has all the standard functions that a sewing machine should have, enabling you to hem pants, make clothing repairs, etc. In addition to that, there are also some extra functions. For example, it works for monogramming thanks to 55 alphanumeric stitches. There are also 8 styles of buttonholes.
As for quilting, this model will allow you to do several layers of quilts. However, in this particular aspect, it’s not able to replace a specialized machine for quilting, so don't expect an impeccable quality of quilts from this model.
The drop-in top bobbin is jam-resistant, ensuring even stitches. There is also a free arm which will assist you in sewing sleeves and cuffs.
The highest speed of this model is 850 stitches per minute. However, for better sewing convenience and control, the speed can be varied with the help of a dedicated slider.
The Brother DZ2400 ships with a set of accessories. By buying the machine, you will also get 12 presser feet for sewing and quilting, a wide extension table, designed for large sewing projects, etc. Unfortunately, despite the fact that this machine is very portable, it comes without a carrying case. The machine comes with only one needle which is not universal for all the sewing needs. So, if you need to sew through particularly thick fabric, for example, it’s recommended to buy some specific needle.
There is no need to have any experience with sewing machines to install this one. This model doesn’t require assembling, and everything you are going to need to start sewing is included in the kit. The Brother DZ2400 manual gives comprehensive information about how to work with this machine.
The machine is made of plastic and is not designed to provide superior durability. Despite this, it still ships with a 25-year warranty.
The Brother Designio Series DZ2400 is painted in white and blue and has all the stitch patterns printed on its body.
A small backlit LCD display is located in the center. It shows a number of the selected stitch, presser foot type, stitch length and width. Below the screen, there are stitch selection buttons. The stitch length and width adjustment buttons are located on the right.
The face panel of this machine also contains such operation buttons as start/stop, reverse, and needle position buttons, as well as a sewing speed control slider. There are also 3 LEDs: utility stitch, mirror image, and character stitch indicators. Next to these indicators, you will see a stitch category selection button. The built-in handle can be found at the back of the machine.
It’s also equipped with a LED lighting system that brightly illuminates the working area. Storage space for accessories is included as well.
As the conclusion of this Brother DZ2400 review, I can recommend it for anyone who likes sewing at home. Except for standard sewing functions, it also has some features to expand your creativity (alphanumeric stitches, different buttonhole styles, etc.).
