The Brother DZ2400 and the Janome DC2013 are two of the most popular affordable sewing machines we will compare today. In addition to being packed with features in an affordable price range, these two sewing machines produced excellent stitch quality.
What are the main differences between them? Allow me to simplify my answers here.
Brother DZ2400 vs. Janome DC2013: Comparison in Features
Sewing Machine Types
Brother DZ2400 and Janome DC2013 are both computerized sewing machines. If you buy a computerized sewing machine, you might also be able to save a few new patterns or even stitches to the onboard memory. Users may even be able to add new stitches, or even project patterns, depending on the machine they’re working on.
In contrast to what you might think, digital machines may be the easiest to use. Rather than complicating our lives, they actually make them easier. In other words, they were supposed to simplify and speed up the process of making clothing.
Brother DZ2400 vs. Janome DC2013 : Built-in Stitches
The Brother DZ2400 comes with an attractive amount of built-in stitches, 185 to be exact. Within those 185 stitches you can find standard stitches, decorative stitches and easy-to-use buttonhole stitches. While the Janome DC2013 features 50 stitches. Similar to the Brother DZ2400, these stitches include standard and decorative stitches.
The Brother DZ2400 sewing machine weighs approximately 9.9 lbs, while the Janome DC2013 sewing machine comes with a weight of 18.2lbs.
The extra weight can become cumbersome if you don’t have a set location in your home for your sewing machine.
The Janome DC2013 sewing machine doesn’t come with a start/stop button, while the Brother DZ2400 does. A huge number of sewists don’t realize that using the start/stop button effectively can make sewing a whole lot easier. It is very useful for decorative stitches for example, as well as with free-motion quilting.
Speed Control Slider
Both Brother DZ2400 and Janome DC2013 sewing machine have a speed control slider, which allows you to set the maximum speed you are comfortable with.
Automatic Needle Threader
Many sewing machines sold today come with an automatic threader function. This is essentially a lever that will guide the thread through the eye of your sewing needle for you so that you don’t have to do it yourself. Many sewists prefer to thread their own needles, but if you have difficulty performing this task, then a machine with an automatic needle threader might be very useful for you. Fortunately, these two sewing machines both come with automatic needle threader, allowing you to thread the machine with ease.
The advantage of easy drop-in, top load bobbins is that you can readily see how much thread is left on the bobbin through the window. You do not have to remove the bobbin case to insert a new bobbin, and you do not have to remove the accessory tray from the free arm to change bobbins. Both the Brother DZ2400 and the Janome DC2013 sewing machine come with this user-friendly feature.
The most common type of feeding mechanism in a home sewing machine (and some industrial machines) is the drop feed, also known as the regular feed system. Both Brother DZ2400 and Janome DC2013 come equipped with a drop feed system, which grabs the fabric and moves it along through the machine.
There is free arm on both the Brother DZ2400 and the Janome DC2013. The free arm is a very useful feature to all sewing machines as it makes sewing one layer of fabric without catching another. This is because all of the workings around the bobbin race, feed dogs, and needles are housed there.

Janome DC2013 Video Review
While both of these sewing machines are made by great businesses, choosing between them is tough. But my general suggestion is to go with the machine that has the most built-in stitches at a reasonable price.

Q. Why use a bobbin on a sewing machine
A. In general, the bobbin is the thing that feeds the thread to stitch from the lower part of the machine. Its purpose is to hold the thread below the needle, and it is where the thread in which you stitch comes from.
Q. Can I interchange metal and plastic bobbins if they are the same size?
A. Metal bobbins and plastic bobbins of the same size can NOT be swapped. Machines are set for a very precise tension setting. If they are set for a lighter plastic bobbin, the tension will change if a heavier metal bobbin is used.
Q. Why use a walking foot on a sewing machine
A. A walking foot helps move knit fabrics evenly so they don’t stretch out of shape. The walking foot eliminates the need for excessive pinning when working with slippery fabrics. That is especially useful because most of those slippery fabrics, such as satin, are easily damaged by pins.
Q. Does the machine work well with stretchy materials?
A. The machine works perfectly with all types of fabrics. As long as the user can work with the material, there should be no problem.
Q. Can a normal sewing machine sew canvas?
A. Yes, canvas can be sewn on a regular sewing machine.
