Brother VR Embroidery/Free Motion Machine


Take your embroidery to the next level

The VR is a completely new concept in embroidery. For the frst time, hobbyists and enthusiasts can buy a machine that combines commercial features and functionality with easy-to-use technology and advanced levels of customisation; all in the comfort of your own home. Take on large projects using the 200 x 200mm (8" x 8") embroidery area, giving you the creative space to design without limits. The thread colour sorting function allows fewer colour changes which can signifcantly reduce the time taken to complete a multi-colour embroidery. Our new concept machine brings all the features of a small enterprise machine into your craft room.

Advancing Creativity

The VR gives you the tools to unlock your embroidery potential. Its unrivalled combination of features and functionality allows you to truly unleash your creativity, bringing increased levels of efciency and individuality to your work. The smooth VR delivers up to 1000 stitches per minute with zero compromise on quality. The 200 x 200mm (8" x 8") embroidery area allows you to take on large and complex designs in confdence, without the need to re-hoop.

The LED pointer helps you achieve perfect needle placement, showing exactly where the needle will drop. Tackle diferent projects with a range of  frame choices as standard, including portrait and landscape options. And what better way to appreciate your stitch work and colours than under a crisp, natural, full spectrum LED light.

Thread colour sorting means you'll make fewer colour changes, and when you do, it'll be quicker and more efcient than other single needle machines. More creation, less work - the bobbin sensor will tell you when the thread is broken or has run out. While anytime access lets you change the lower bobbin without removing your project. 

  • 200 x 200mm (8" x 8") embroidery area allows you to create large designs without the need to re-hoop.
  • Send your own designs to the machine from either a memory stick or your computer, using the two USB ports. Then use the large 7”, 260,000 colour LCD touch screen to mirror, rotate, resize and add multiple lines of text quickly and easily.
  • The thread colour sorting can minimise the number of colour changes in multi-colour designs, reducing embroidery time.
  • See exactly where the needle will drop and adjust the position accurately with the LED needle pointer.
