Proud Stockists of the Brother XP1 Luminaire

The Brother XP1 Luminaire is Brother's ground-breaking combination sewing and embroidery machine filled with industry firsts, sewing machine innovations and so much space that your creativity is almost limitless! Nothing on the market is as big or as well-appointed as the Luminaire, and once you move up to this prestigious sewing experience, you'll find yourself with more creative options and such a high capacity for improvisation, than you ever believed possible. 

When it comes to sewing, the XP1 Luminaire has more room than ever before, with 13.1" (332mm) of space across the sewing bed, there is room for even your biggest quilting projects. Even if you aren't quilting with your Luminaire, bigger piecing projects like in-the-hoop pieced quilts, are made easier to manage is so much space. Stitchvision technology, new and exclusive to the Luminaire, cleverly projects an actual image of your decorative stitch into place on your work under the needle so you know not only if the stitch will actually fit in your space, but also how it will look. The giant 10.1" (256mm) colour LCD screen makes choosing from the 670 decorative stitches a breeze and the MuVit Digital Dual Feed system will give stitching layers, THICK layers, just as easy.

And embroidery...where to start? How about the enormous hoop size. The 10.5" x 16" (266mm x 406mm) embroidery hoop for the Luminaire is so big that it's reinforced with a metal internal frame, and the embroidery arm itself has been robustly designed internally with an additional x-axis shaft. Then you have the actual embroidery process. Using the same Stitchvision technology as in sewing mode, the Luminaire will project an actual image of your embroidery design onto your hooped fabric so you can see exactly where you're design will be. The on-board editing functions are so advanced that you can create embroidery designs right there on the Luminaire LCD screen, including intricate quilting patterns like stippling, geometrics or even echo.

Just like you'd expect from a machine which is top of it's class, there are more than enough high-level features on the XP1 Luminaire to satisfy the most discerning stitcher, but like all Brother machines, the Luminaire also has excellent everyday features too. The automatic needle threader is completely automatic - no fiddling with alignment as you use it; all of your stitch controls are at your finger-tips and easy to reach; and the 1050 stitches per minute sewing speed is smooth sewing, that purrs along as you create.

We've put together an excellent summary of the key features of the Brother XV1 Luminaire, including all of Brother's demonstration videos, so you can get to know it better.
