Features of the Brother PE770 Embroidery Machine

The Brother PE770 is a model that inspired other Brother embroidery machines such as the PE800. This predecessor has set the standard in terms of features and is just as excellent as the one that comes after it.

What makes the PE770 a valuable machine is its feature-to-price balance. So if you're someone looking for an embroidery machine that has what you need without anything fancy and is pegged at the right price point, this embroidery equipment will suit you.

Check out the characteristics that made the Brother PE770 worth emulating. 

LCD Touch Screen 

Coming up with designs is made easy because of the liquid crystal display (LCD) addition. The 1.4” x 2.7” backlit screen lets you view and select from various preset embroidery designs.

A control panel is set below the touch-enabled screen, which allows you to move forward to the next option or go back, improving the design, font, and hoop size selection and navigation.

Large Embroidery Hoop Area 

A wide hoop is desirable because you can scale designs that look awesome when done large. When you purchase the PE770, you'll get a 5” x 7” embroidery hoop, allowing you to embroider designs on things such as bathroom towels, tote bags, and even t-shirts.

You'll also enjoy having more pronounced design details because of the larger hoop area. This allows you to select and create your complex embroidery projects because the hoop and the embroidery field can accommodate them. 

Wide Variety of Design Presets

Design varieties included in the PE770 machine will inspire more creative embroidery ideas within you. You'll find 136 built-in designs, six font options, ten different frame shapes, and 12 borders on the LCD screen.

This range of options is plenty enough to work with. In addition, you'll have hundreds of possible design combinations that serve as a starting point for both newbies and professionals looking for a spark or want to get embroidery designs stitched on a fabric for a project.

Design Importing

Your options go beyond the presets available in the PE770. That's because you can import your designs for the embroidery machine to work with.

A USB port is fitted to the PE770. You can plug in a flash drive filled with digital embroidery designs that you make via a compatible embroidery design software.

Another alternative if you want to expand your designs options with little to no designing on your end is to go to Brother's embroidery website, iBroidery. You'll find thousands of pre-made designs you can plug into the machine.

Digital Embroidery Design Storage Space

Brother recognizes the problem of having to plug in the flash disc every time you want to work on an original design. So the embroidery machine is fitted with storage space where you can save designs that you intend to use frequently. This way, you can free up your flash drive for more designs you can use on the fly.

Advanced Needle Threader and Threading Guide

Nothing is more convenient than having your threads insert the needles in one swoop. That's what the Brother PE770 embroidery machine needle threader does. It also removes the grueling work of manually inserting and reinserting different threads as you finish a design.

Another awesome feature that goes hand-in-hand with the threader is the guide. It's number-based and helps you match the correct thread color as indicated by the blueprint. This ensures that the embroidered design looks exactly as it is supposed to.

With the advanced needle threader and threading guide, you'll finish your projects on time and allow you to complete even more marvelous projects.

High-Speed Stitches

Speedy completion of projects is always desired, and one important factor that plays in turning in work quickly is high-speed stitches.

The PE770 can go as fast as 650 stitches per minute when doing embroidery. As a result, designs are also completed fast and well. We often become concerned about the quality going out the window when things are done fast. But the way the embroidery machine prints the design on the fabric is precise; it zips through the fabric like it is 3D printing, and it will give you the exact result you expect.

Speed Control

If there's an option to do things fast, there must be an option to taper it. That's where speed control comes in. For beginners, it's important to do things slowly so you can monitor the progress with an untrained eye. The PE770's speed slider will help you do that.

By sliding the speed control to your desired stitching rate per minute, you get the chance to slow the process of embroidery down to your preference.
