Brother Luminaire Innov-is XP1 is a technological breakthrough in sewing, embroidery and quilting technology. You will instantly feel a rush of excitement when you see the Luminaire’s StitchVision technology. The first of its kind, it projects a virtual reality image of your embroidery, sewing stitch or quilt pattern, in its true size, color and proportion. This makes embroidery placement and stitch auditioning a pleasure, instead of a chore. Quilters will love the guide markers that can be set in all types of seam allowances including ¼” or even a scant ¼”, plus angles for the most precise guidance in sewing binding and triangles, without the need for painter’s tape on the bed of your machine. This machine is a must see.
