Stitch Precision with StitchVision Technology

Introducing StitchVision Technology, a revolutionary system for virtually perfect stitch positioning and more precise previews via an intelligent projection of light. Preview, audition and edit designs and stitches directly on your fabric.

Use the StitchVision Technology for virtually perfect placement of your embroidery design. After choosing a design, select the StitchVision Technology icon on the LCD display to see it projected on your hooped fabric, allowing you to get a realistic preview before you begin embroidering.*


*In some cases, there may be some difference between the projector view and actual embroidery stitch-out based on materials used.

Use the innovative Dual Purpose Stylus* to make adjustments to your stitches directly on your fabric for even more accuracy than ever before. Adjust your stitch width, length, and left/right shift using the revolutionary stylus. Easily switch your stitch design by pressing the left or right arrow keys using the stylus. The soft tip of the stylus works on the LCD display, allowing you to select, move, or enhance projects directly on the screen.

Seeing is Believing

Choose your desired sewing stitch and watch in amazement as the stitch is projected onto the 127mm x 76mm virtual preview area.*

XP1_WebImages_Stitch Precision 3

Guideline Marker Line and Grid

The 127mm x 76mm virtual preview area also displays a guideline marker in single, double, angled and gridlines. Use gridlines for creating multiple rows of parallel stitching, pin tucks, hems, curtain rod pockets, decorative stitches, cross-hatch quilting or smocking. When creating mitered corners, sashing strips, Y-seams, diamond cross-hatching or square corners, use the projector to preview your angle lines.

XP1_WebImages_Stitch Precision 5

Easy-to-view Embroidery Pointer

A built-in embroidery pointer is shown as a ‘T’ mark on your fabric. Three colour options ensure visibility regardless of fabric colour. The pointer shows the centre of your embroidery design as well as the needle drop position on the fabric.


Enhanced InnovEye Plus Technology

It’s like having a built-in camera and scanner! The ability to scan the entire embroidery area provides virtually endless creative options and helps ensure that all your projects are perfect.

The InnovEye Plus Technology has been enhanced to give you an even more precise and accurate experience. The camera viewing area now scans your embroidery area up to 400% wider than before. InnovEye Plus Technology has faster scanning speeds than prior models, so you can spend more time creating, and less time waiting.

My Design Centre

My Design Centre integrates with our industry-first InnovEye Plus Technology to offer design capabilities at your fingertips, all without a PC. There are so many ways to create custom, personal works-of-art and a really fun way to create embroidery!

Draw or doodle directly on the LCD display and watch it spring to life in the large drawing area. Or, use the industry-first Scanimation Scanning Frame to scan drawings, line art, handwriting or printed clip art and have it transformed into embroidery data. Import a JPEG using the USB port and watch in amazement as the image is turned into stitch data using just the machine.
