Compact MuVit Digital Dual Feed Foot

The Brother Muvit is a digital dual-feed foot that makes it possible to feed a wide range of fabrics (such as denim or silk) with great ease. It provides better visibility and accommodates for thicker materials, with the ability to stitch forwards and backwards. It is compatible with over 100 stitch designs in the machine. The innovative digitally-controlled direct motor driven foot may be adjusted from the touch screen to accommodate different textiles. Simply use the plus and minus keys to choose the required feed, then save the setting to memory for future use. When dual feed isn’t required the foot can be switched off or easily removed.

This digitally controlled direct motor-driven accessory foot is provided for challenging projects that require particular handling, so you can be confident that you'll be able to move it smoothly with only a touch.

Brother BQ3100 Laser Vision Guide

Sew Straight Laser Vision Guide

A cutting-edge laser guide that creates a flawless straight line on your fabric. For straight sewing, hems, piecing, pin tucking, and cording, simply guide your fabric along the line. The LCD screen can be used to alter the position of the easy-to-use laser guide within a 14-mm range. Use the new V-Sonic pen to choose where you want the guideline and the laser line will appear exactly where you need it.


V-Sonic Pen

Easy finishing for sewing
Simply tap the position where you wish to stop sewing with the V-Sonic pen, and the machine will stop at the chosen end point. Furthermore, the machine will automatically modify the stitch to match the space – so you can relax, knowing that the machine will instinctively stop at the end point without leaving a decorative stitch unfinished.

Needle position
Set the straight stitch needle position on the fabric by simply pointing the V-Sonic pen where you wish to sew, and the machine will sew on the line.

Adjust zigzag or decorative stitches
Use the V-Sonic pen to adjust the stitch width and position effortlessly by just touching and tapping where you would like the stitch to start. Mark the width of the stitch, then sit back and let the machine handle the rest.

Brother BQ3100 Automatic Height Adjuster

Automatic Height Adjuster (AHA)

The AHA function keeps the presser foot pressure constant and helps maintain uniform stitch length on all fabric thicknesses, resulting in more consistent stitch quality over uneven surfaces.


Computer Compatibility

The BQ3100 takes USB media for adding or storing more stitches with its complete USB connector. Alternatively, attach a USB mouse (not supplied) to the port and use it with the machine's screen. Connect the BQ3100 to your computer for quick and easy software updates.

Brother BQ3100 Feed Dogs

7 point feed dogs

Superior stitch quality is ensured by the box motion feeding action paired with the 7-point feed dog system. From sheer silk to denim, sew smooth seams on any weight of fabric. It also prevents the material from shrinking or moving throughout the stitching process.


Free motion quilting and thread painting

Remove the feed dogs and install the included free-motion foot, which allows you to guide the fabric freely by hand. The machine is ready to go whether you're quilting a simple pattern or thread painting a complex design.

Automatic thread tension

The tension will adjust automatically based on the stitch you've chosen, so you won't have to worry about it.


Automatic thread trims

At the touch of a button, the upper and lower threads are cut, or the machine can be programmed to cut them automatically for sewing.

Wide Table Included

With this extra-large extension table, you can expand your sewing space. Change needle position, set stitch width, and sew large quilted designs with ease.


Back to beginning key

When sewing character/decorative stitches, you may have finished sewing the pattern but want to repeat it. By using this key, you can return to the beginning of the pattern and sew it again.

Continuous Automatic Pressure System

This feature keeps the presser foot pressure consistent regardless of fabric thickness, ensuring uniform stitch length on all fabrics.

Made for speed

You’ll be creating project after project with 1,050 stitches per minute.

Built-in Help

To recommend the perfect settings for your stitching, there are animated video demonstrations and assistance manuals.
