Brother DZ2400 is one among the 6 sewing machines rolled out by Brother under Designio Series. As the name suggests, it is more focused on a designer or an advanced user. It comes with 25 years limited warranty. This sewing machine has 185 built-in stitches which include 55 alphanumeric stitches and 130 sewing stitches. 8 one-step automatic buttonholes adds a lot of variety.

Brother DZ2400 comes with an extra wide table for larger quilting and sewing projects. The speed control lever helps you control the sewing speed quite easily. It also comes with 12 sewing and quilting feet, with which you can make your own custom design.

One touch stitch selection is a good feature. The work area is well lit by bright LEDs. Brother always had bright work lights, but it is still a problem with Singer machines. The top drop-in bobbins system provides added reliability. Needle threading is made easy with automatic needle-threader. The needle up down is another good feature.  It comes with quite a lot of accessories as well.
