This machine’s electronic jog dial also allows you to select each of its 16 pre-set stitches including a choice of three 1-step automatic buttonholes. You will enjoy full control of the up to 7mm stitch width and 5mm stitch length and the automatic threading system takes the hassle out of an ordinarily frustrating task. 

The Innov-is A16 stitches at up to 850spm, easily adjusted by a slide controller and operated either by the touch of a button or the foot controller. The 7-point feed dogs provides greater contact with the fabric which translates to a strong smooth motion, suitable for a wider range of fabrics such as silks and denims.
