Introducing Ignite’s New Embroidery Machine

Introducing Ignite’s new embroidery machine! Admittedly, our previous embroidery machine left many on the struggle bus. We heard your feedback, did our research, and are happy to offer a brand new, user-friendly, and reliable embroidery machine. Now you can create your own designs to embroider, or choose from a variety of pre-made designs. Read on to learn more about the new machine, now available in Ignite.

Introducing Ignite’s New Embroidery Machine

Embroidery Software

If you want to have more customization than what designing on the machine itself can offer, all Ignite visitors will have access to Embrilliance StitchArtist Level 3. This professional grade embroidery software is available on all Ignite laptops. To use it, just request a laptop at our service point. If you’d like to practice using the software at home, there is a demo version available. The downside to the demo version is that it removes all access to saving files. It is purely for learning the software and how the different tools work.

Tutorial Videos

We’ve made a few tutorial videos to help you get started.

If you’d like a guide on how to make your own design from scratch using Embrilliance, watch: Creating Your Design in Embrilliance.

To learn how to run your project on the machine, watch: Opening and Starting Your Project on the Machine

If you’d like further demonstration on the tools Embrilliance has to offer, check out their Youtube channel @Embrilliance. Here, they have over 150 videos to help you get the most out of the software.

The Machine

We have replaced our previous Brother SE400 Sewing/Embroidery Combo Machine with the Brother NQ1700E Embroidery-Only Machine. Previously, the maximum size patrons could embroider was 4”x4”. With the new machine, patrons are now able to embroider up to a maximum size of 6”x10”. The machine comes preloaded with a large selection of graphics as well as the capability to layout your design right within the machine. All preloaded graphics are in the Design Guide (pictured below). Throughout the book you will see a small image of the project along with the needed colors and estimated time to complete.
