Not only is this machine the top-of-the-line in the Brother range, I would say the Innovis XV is one of the very best embroidery machines on the market. Can you imagine being able to sew out the very creative thought that has just jumped into your head...for me that’s a dream machine.
Why not come in store for a demo to see for yourself how good this machine is.
As soon as you power up the Brother Innov-is XV sewing machine you know it is special. The huge 10.1” screen is HD and the ability to load your own videos really shows how vibrant the colours are. Not only does it beep and buzz like regular computerised embroidery machines, the Brother XV plays music at start up.
It uses a faster processor so your designs appear on-screen more quickly, and colour shuffling is swifter too. Editing designs, adding text, resizing, or using the NEW auto punch feature are very responsive to every touch of the screen.
It has a huge range of features that I will list below, but I feel one or two need a little more explaining as they are simply fantastic additions to make sewing more creative and easier.
Numerous help videos can also be viewed on screen.
From the My Custom Design Centre, you can literally scan an image. We used a childs hand drawn and painted picture, placed it in the scanning frame and let the machine scan it (just as our video shows). We then used the editing tools to rub out/delete areas we did not need. Added stitching where we needed to and when ready we touched the screen which turned the image in to stitches allowing us to stitch it out in the appropriate sized hoop.
Often, we have a vision of an embroidery we like. But its not easy to imagine a specific embroidery design in the colours you require. Via the colour shuffle feature, the Innovis XV will tell you how many colours are in that design enabling you to select any colour range you need for matching your sewing project. Now the machine will shuffle the colours and show you up to 99 different variations of the same design but using different colours in various blocks of the design. It totally changes the original design into your very own customised design with a perfect colour match for your project.
Quilters will love the laser line guide, which gives a perfect straight line to follow. This innovative system projects a perfect straight line onto your fabric, making wonky hems a thing of the past. Its perfect for piecing whilst quilt making.

Cleveland uk Review by Arlene Rumball
Love this machine although the videos on YouTube have been well and truly watched on how to get the best out of it. Wonderful machine love it . PE DESIGN 10 software came with it as a promotion offer from Brother. Both truly are a learning curve although YouTube videos have helped. Definitely a 5 star buy. (Posted on March 1, 2016)
Lincolnshire Review by Susan Bennett
This machine is everything Brother promises, a truly amazing embroidery machine. My only regret is that I did not take advantage of the software package that was on offer when you buy the machine at a discounted price. (Posted on February 25, 2016)
Shropshire Review by Doogle Dog
Though I have only just bought this machine two days before Xmas I am totally in awe of it, it has everything. I have started to get to grips with it and it is very user friendly especially for anyone with IT skills and if you are not IT savvy then there are plenty of instructions both in the handbook and on the screen. I can't wait to start using the embroidery functions but unfortunately work has now got in the way of pleasure, so I will have to wait until I have time. The only problem I can see is being able to stop using it, the housework will certainly suffer.
Also many thanks to Sewing Machine Sales for how quickly they delivered the machine to me. (Posted on December 30, 2015)
Witham Essex Review by Jennifer Johns
What can I say this machine has everything I could ask for the sewing and embroidery is great. Have used many other machines in my time but this is the best by far. (Posted on March 6, 2015)
Bedfordshire Review by SUSAN
I had never bought a machine from here before but it wont be the last time I do the service I have had from Duke has been exceptional nothing is too much of a problem and my questions have been answered quickly and my mind put at ease. I bought the XV in November 2014 - so far I have made a frozen quilt for my grand daughter from a panel with embroidery on the back - and a very extensive embroidered baby quilt with a Zoo design, clouds bugs etc - the embroidery on this machine is fab and for anyone that quilts and embroiders the camera is a must. I used the camera to scan my fabric then placed the design where I wanted it to go because you can see the fabric its easier to place making it so fast, much better than using the grids, then adding wording to the project to make it my own, my quilt included the DOB the time and weight and name and this was all done in the hoop it's a doddle adding extra to your design with this machine. I have also used the machine to sew the quilt together using the Duel feed foot, I must admit when I first looked at the duel feed foot I was dreading attaching it to the machine but no worries it was a lot easier than I thought no different to any other foot and wow it makes sewing through thick fabrics a real dream. There is one thing that really stands out for me on the Brother machines and that's the needle threader, believe me when I tell you it's the best needle threader of any machine, and I have had a few. I am really happy with my purchase and so is my hubby as he will use this machine to help me out sometime he says its easy to use and loves the needle threader too. I hope this review has helped (Posted on February 7, 2015)
