The Brother PE800 is a computerized embroidery machine with versatile presets and an LCD touchscreen designed for home-based embroidery with a small to medium scale output.

This home embroidery station comes with a vast selection of presets and concomitant tutorials in order to expand your creative options and general flexibility of sewing action. Among 138 built-in designs you may find plenty of industry favorites for all your embroidery needs, including professionally-inspired patterns and stitches.

In addition to color presets, the machine offers additional frame designs that include 10 shapes14 stitches, and 11 lettering fonts for monogramming embroidery.

Any additional designs, fonts, and shapes can be added to the machine’s built-in memory via its USB flash drive port that supports memory sticks as well as cord connection.

All built-in and added designs can be accessed in full color via the machine’s 3.2″ Sew Smart LCD touch screen display that provides free access to built-in tutorials with step-by-step guides to various techniques.

The display can also be used for editing different designs and customizing almost any project. Its featured editor supports various gestures that let you drag and drop selected designs as well as rotate, mirror-image, re-size, and descale the image. All final looks are displayed on the screen before any embroidery can commence so that you can cancel or edit the design at the last minute.

This model offers a substantial embroidery area of 5″ x 7″ able to handle large designs, patterns, and lettering pieces as well as combine different designs with minimal rehooping. As for the pattern rotating increments, the work field allows the rotation by 1 degree, 10 degrees, or 90 degrees, accommodating projects of varying sizes and levels of intricacy.

Another useful upgrade comes in the form of the advanced needle threading system that handles the process of needle threading automatically. The needle threader is operated by a marked lever that engages the mechanism and threads the needle with ease, saving you the time and hassle of manual change which can be vital when working with embroidering designs that require multiple thread switches.

Automatic thread cutter is also added for maximum time efficiency and can considerably increase your productivity during complex projects. In addition, you may find a numbered threading diagram printed on the machine for a greater ease of use.

The tension of the thread is determined automatically and closely monitored, while both the bobbin and upper thread sections are equipped with built-in sensors to deliver more precise results. The bobbin section has a quick-set mechanism that lets you change your spools without a hassle.Moreover, the embroidery field is lit by efficient LED lighting from underneath the panel, providing a clear view of your work area even in the lack of natural light. More LED bulbs illuminate the needle area to make any projects that deal with darker and thicker fabrics much easier to handle.
