Some Perks for Hardcore Embroiderers
The Brother PE770 has most of the key features that almost every embroiderer wants to have in his machine. In short, embroidery is made easy if these significant things are featured in a machine. Let’s have a look at them one by one.
As easy as a piece of cake
Any embroiderer, be it amateur or beginner, won’t complain that this machine is complex and difficult to understand. It is simply usable by those who just know the basics of embroidery. One can easily get started by reading the User Guide.
In case of any further confusion, you can go through a video on Youtube. You can also comment beneath this blog post and we will guide you. An Installation Manual is also recommended to check before you set this up. It will ease up your installation process.
Automatic Thread Trimmer
The more you cut off the seams every now and then the more you would need a scissor to cut the thread from the bobbin and needle. To get rid of these scissors each time you want to cut off a seam, Brother PE770 has an automatic thread trimmer.
Embroidery Designs’ Variety
It’s simply the larger the preset variety the more creative your projects get. This machine features 136 different designs for embroidery. Some of them are classic quilt patterns while others are intricate florals.
If you want some delicate art, try the scrollwork this machine features and share your thoughts in the comments.
In addition to all these, Monogramming and lettering are a lot easier with the built-in 6 English fonts. Just type in the word and get it embellished on your jacket’s back.
The iBroidery Site for More Designs
The next good thing about this machine is you can purchase your favorite embroidery design from Brother’s official website iBroidery. All the designs are available at very reasonable prices. There are a ton of licensed characters from different famous TV channels as well.
Once you have a purchased design or a licensed one, you can import them into the machine via a USB. Plugin the USB into the USB port and start working on your desired embroidery design. As mentioned above, you can purchase designs from iBroidery.
Large Embroidery Hoop
You and I both want to work on things that can handle more work. An embroidery machine with a large hoop means it can do large projects easily. This machine has a 5” x 7” hoop so you can get your jacket’s back and pillow covers embroidered conveniently.
As compared to the Brother PE535, this one has got a bigger hoop.
Although the machine has a proven history, its high stitching speed adds more to its beauty. It sews at a high speed of 650 stitches per minute.
It simply means that your 1-hour project will now conveniently be done in 40 minutes. That is a cool decision to save your precious time. right?
Automatic Needle Threader
Whenever you need to thread your needle, you spend quite a few minutes struggling to push the thread through the needle’s eye. Eventually, you get eye strain and frustrated.
An automatic needle threader helps you get rid of such eye fatigue and threads the machine needle in a couple of seconds. You just have to press a button, nothing more.
The machine is heavy and isn’t that portable. It’s almost 27lbs so put it in a space where you won’t need to move it frequently.
Other than that, make sure you measure your free space in your room before putting it there. Double-check whether the space would be enough for this machine LxWxH(21.2 x 16.9 x 17.3).
- Large Hoop
- Embroidery-only machine
- Sturdy and durable
- Built-in presets variety
- IBroidery compatible
- USB port
- Black & white touchscreen
- Not enough portable
