Brother NV880E Embroidery Only

Original price was: $2,889.00.Current price is: $2,599.00.

The Brother NV880E embroidery only machine gives you a fab range of features that make embroidery even easier than ever! We are always big fans of Brother’s smooth sewing and quality stitching, and we are always banging on about how awesome the automatic needle threader is, and the NV880 adds these to even more excellent features! Including 3 hoops, the embroidery area is a good 10inches x 6inches, the LED position marker lets you get your design in just the right spot, and the addition of WIFI means you can either transfer designs by USB or right from your Windows PC. And now NEW – the FREE Brother Artspira App adds a new design aspect with the ability to freehand your own line embroideries.

This is our favourite embroidery-only machine at the $2500 to $3000 price point. The RRP of the Brother NV880E is $2889

Not Local?

Thanks for thinking of us! Mike and I strongly believe that a sewing machine needs the support of a local retailer, especially when it comes to your warranty. Because of this, we don’t ship our machines.
