What makes our Coverstitch Machine so special?

Brother’s new range of coverstitch machines will inspire and satisfy beginners and professionals alike! We took out the guesswork and designed the new range of coverstitchers in such a way that you can sew fuss and hassle-free, even if you are a novice.

For Beginners

For Beginners who have never used a coverstitcher before, a coverstitch machine may seem a little intimi-dating. Fear not though, our machine has been designed to be super easy to use! With these thoughtfully designed features, you will be sewing professional coverstitches in no time!

No need to alter tension, it is preset at the factory so you can just start to sew! Furthermore, this tension setting will work on most fabrics, so you will never have to fiddle too much to get a perfect stitch.

Hassle-free and intuitive threading with a clear threading guide to help you thread your machine in a jiffy!

Have a clear view over your stitching so you can confidently guide your coverstitching in the desired direc-tion.


For the Intermediate user, we improved our design for even better sewing and better operating.

We have moved the pressor foot lever to the right of the machine so it is more ergonomical and effecient to use. All your levers and dials are conveniently placed close together to ensure ease of use.

Now you can coverstitch even smaller items, so even baby clothing is a breeze.


For our Professional users, we added some even more refined features to enhance your sewing even more!

Fine tune tension even more with this fine adjustment lever, with 6 different levels of fine-tuning.

For easy sewing of larger articles and more comfortable working area.
