Features: Brother ST371HD Review

Automatic Needle Threader

The machine can capture the thread and direct it to the eye of the needle in a flash. This one feature saves you much time and effort, and it comes in handy. It can be frustrating trying to fix frayed or large thread through the eye of a thin needle.

Bobbin Features

You can place the threaded bobbin in its holder, and it will guide the thread into its place. The cover of the bobbin is transparent, a quality that makes it possible for you to see when the thread in the bobbin is running out. This makes it easy to monitor and make a refill of the thread instead of having to stop in the middle of the project.

Storage and Free Arm

The machine comes with a large storage compartment in which you can store all your machine accessories like the bobbins, extra feet, needles, and the rest. It helps you keep your stuff organized and close at hand so that you don’t lose them or waste time looking for them.

Thread Adjustment

The machine allows for customization so that you can put the thread at the level where you are comfortable. Thread tension is set under control by a dial that is conveniently located on the top side of the machine. It serves a crucial purpose when you are working with fabrics of varying thickness.

Easy-Stitch Selector

It is effortless for you to select the stitch you want because there is a dial available for that function. It lets you choose from a variety of stretch stitches, buttonhole, utility stitches, and decorative. The stitches are conveniently printed on the machine for ease of selection and use.
