You’ll enjoy creating your projects with the ability to see your stitches projected, scan your embroidery area, create data from illustrations, tackle larger projects, and much more!

Preview your stitches

5″ × 3″ projected preview area

Utilise StitchVision technology for precise positioning of your embroidery designs. To see your design projected onto your hooped fabric after selecting it, pick the Stitch Vision technology icon on the LCD screen. Before you start embroidering, you will be able to examine a realistic preview.

Use guideline markers for accuracy

Using the 5″ x 3″ virtual preview area, you can also display guideline markers in single, double, angled lines and gridlines. Angled lines are great for mitred corners and sashing strips, whilst gridlines can be used for creating multiple rows of parallel stitching and more.
