Frame Sizes

When choosing an embroidery machine you need to consider the embroidery area that the machine is capable of sewing up to. For many starting out in embroidery the cost of a machine is important and you may not be sure how much you will use the machine or for what type of embroidery.

Our advice is to buy a machine with a minimum embroidery area of 130mm x 180mm and the sections below should help you to understand more about Brother machines, current and older models, with regard to frame sizes (embroidery areas). 

The images of frames on this Size 16 T-shirt give an idea of scale.
