- Type Of Fabrics It Can Be Used On
This model can be used for all kinds of fabrics from silk to denim. Below types of fabrics can be used for this sewing machine for beginners. Be sure to use the correct type of needle to do the sewing.
For example, you will need a needle size of 100/16 to sew denim fabric. This type of fabric is in the thick category, so you will need a thicker and stronger needle to get the job done. If you are using the wrong needle size like the 65/9 needle size, then it will easily break.
- Faux leather
- Faux suede
You should also use the correct size of the thread for the type of fabric. According to the user manual, you should never use a thread size of 20 or lower. By doing so it might cause the machine to malfunction.
You should always check to see if the needle is in good condition before sewing. If the needle is bent then you should replace it with a new one. It is very dangerous to sew with a bent needle. A bent needle might break while the machine is being used.
- Twin Needle
Brother ST150HDH has a twin needle feature. A twin needle can design two parallel lines of the same stitch with two different threads. Now it will give you even more creative ideas on your projects.
Just be sure to use the same quality and thickness of the threads for the upper threads when you are using the twin needle. This sewing machine for beginners will require a twin needle and an extra spool pin to hold the thread.
