This is a huge flat bed embroidery machine and so fast. Maintaining the same size chassis as larger V5 and V7, the Brother V3 is an embroidery only machine as opposed to the other two which are sewing and embroidery. This machine is speedy and stitches at 1050 stitches per minute which is unbelievable when you think a standard domestic machine stitches at around 800 spm. The V3 is closer to and industrial speed machine, but without the industrial sound.
It is very quiet and very smooth; I don't know how brother have engineered this machine so well. The stitch quality has not been compromised either, which might normally happen when you reach these speeds. Brother really is pushing the technical boundaries of home embroidery with this masterpiece.
But what is it like to use?
Easy, The brightly illuminated 11 and a half inch work area allows you to see your design come to life very clearly, The reactions of the machine are as sharp as a razor. As soon as the bobbin thread runs out the machine stops and tells you. You could even have a pre wound bobbin ready with the independent bobbin winder... now that’s a great time saver. The easy threading advanced automatic needle threader is perfect every time, along with the auto tension unit, there is very little set up needed at all.
The backlit LED touch screen is also very responsive, where you can drag and drop your designs to position them quickly and accurately. You can also rotate, mirror enlarge or reduce any of the 200 plus, built in designs instantly with the onscreen editor. Even preview the design before embroidering on the full colour LED screen. Embroider up to 300mm x 180mm and a choice of a whopping 17 different style fonts to choose from, you’ll be personalising items for everyone with this machine. Some of the built in designs are just amazing, including Classic Japanese, Vintage, Trendy, Zundt and special technique designs. Even download designs on to your computer and import them instantly using the built in USB port or connect your V3 direct to your computer instead.
