Embroidery Pattern Positioning (PR1055X)

It is very important that the embroidery pattern is placed in the correct position of the garment. And that's not always easy if you've never worked with an embroidery machine before... However, with the PR1055X this is a piece of cake. The built-in camera helps to place the pattern exactly where it needs to be embroidered, all in real time!

Use the built-in camera function to place the pattern exactly where it needs to be embroidered, the camera makes the display visible directly on the screen.

Scan projects into the embroidery frame and display them on the big screen so that the embroidery pattern can be easily positioned before you start embroidering. Ideal for positioning patterns on necklines or complex quilt blocks. Patterns can be resized and edited or rotated to fit the garment or project perfectly.
