The NV1 (Innov-Is I) and NV1e has the largest embroidery area in the range of Brother domestic machines.
The 130mm x 180mm frame has been replaced by a 200mm x 200mm which means that square designs of 8 inches wide (ideal for quilt blocks) can now be accommodated.
This means that the largest frame is 200mm x 300mm and capable of taking some of the largest designs around. A built-in camera feature is a unique Brother feature that allows you to easily place designs anywhere in the hoop by scanning your fabric first and placing exactly where you require.
As with the NV4000 this machine is supplied with an embroidery unit carry case which stores the embroidery unit and the four frames which are supplied as standard: Extra small hoop 20mm x 60mm, 100mm x 100mm, 200mm x 200mm and 200mm x 300mm.
You can also purchase extra frame sizes from the NV1500/2200 and NV4000/5000 which offer even greater versatility:
130mm x 180mm EF75
160mm x 260mm EF81
180mm x 200mm EF76
There's also a Border Frame for the NV1 which is a quick-release and re-hoop frame for continuous border designs along the edges of fabrics Border_Frame_For_NV1.
