With six-needle speed and versatility, the PR680WC can handle different sized projects with ease. Create on a generous 300 x 200mm work area and see your designs on the large 26cm built-in high-definition LCD display. View your designs in crisp, vivid colour and really see the detail with the zoom function which goes up 200%. Easily adjust your design by rotating in 0.1-degree, 1-degree, 10-degree, or 90-degree increments. Make something new or add an upcycling touch with any of the 100 built-in embroidery designs.

 

Overview

Packed full of easy-to-use features the Professional PR680WC 6-Needle Embroidery machine is the first-choice machine for those wishing to go pro.

There’s a perfect pattern for every perfect order with the 763 built-in embroidery designs, 3 monogramming fonts and 50 built-in lettering fonts. Stitch out the built-in designs as they are, or express your creativity with the design editing features.

Customise fonts by adjusting the spacing, colour shuffling, or changing the thread density to improve the look of stitching. Add an instant pattern outline with the appliqué feature and reduce editing time with colour grouping.

Save time and mistakes with the built-in stitch simulator, automatic colour stitch sequence, basting stitch outline feature and smart stitch management. The PR680WC will also automatically resume the embroidery design at the exact stitch when the machine either stopped or lost power.

With the largest crosshair pointer on the market, you can see exactly where your needles will drop, ensuring perfect pattern placement every time. Easily position jobs faster and more accurately. Nine points can be set: centre, four corners and four middles.

We’ve upgraded the upper thread tension dials and expanded the thread tension range to give you ultimate control in fine tension settings. You’ll see less puckering on lighter fabrics like satin and organza.

For the first-time user we’ve simplified the interface, included 25 video tutorials and built in the largest laser crosshair needle drop pointer on the marketplace for precision positioning.

For the hobby user there’s an additional 121 built-in designs and 13 fonts and greater colour shuffling.
