Bruder no longer produces knitting machines – what now?
If you’re like me, you’ve always heard that the Brother knitting machine was the best there is, and now it’s no longer made, right? In this article we will introduce some machines that are very similar to the brother.
In my search for the next best thing, I found a machine that is exactly the duplicate of Brother. So much so that the Brother attachments work perfectly on this computer. This means that if you have a Brother machine and are looking for suitable attachments, you can get it. And if you need to replace a brother, the brother attachments you have will not be wasted. You can buy this machine and your attachments will work perfectly. This knitting machine is manufactured in China and sold under the name Artisan. The Artisan model numbers correspond to the Brother model numbers. This makes it easier to compare the two machines. It also makes it nice when you are looking for replacement parts or accessories.
Another machine that I have found that is very similar to a brother is a Taitexma. Taitexma is a Taiwanese company that produces in both Taiwan and mainland China. The Taitexma is very similar to the brother. They also use the same model numbers, but have replaced the Brother letters KH and KR with TH and TR. I cannot say positively that this is an exact duplicate, but it is very close. At least some, if not all, of the Brother attachments work with the Taitexma. Taitexma has been in business since 1989 and has been manufacturing flatbed machines since 2000. Because of their excellent attitude to customer service, I believe that this company will continue to exist for a long time.
So what do you do if you want a Brother knitting machine? They look at Artisan or Taitexma.
