Best Embroidery Machine of 2024

If you’re looking at buying an embroidery machine, you’re probably considering all of the different embroidery machines on the market and wondering what machine is the right machine for you and your projects. It can be overwhelming, of course, but we’re here to help you weed through all of the different options and really find the machine that fits your sewing needs and your lifestyle.

You’ll want to consider a few things before you make a purchase. You should know your budget, how often you’ll use it, the amount of space you have for a machine, and what features you need to complete the types of projects you make.

Not all embroidery machines are built the same. They might look incredibly similar but depending on the designs that are already programmed in and what other features are built into the machine, they can be very different. It all depends on your needs from the machine itself.

Let’s get into it!


Best Embroidery Machine

Brother Innov-is V3 LE Embroidery Machine

The Brother Innov-is V3 LE Embroidery Machine is a domestic embroidery machine (meaning it’s not specifically meant for business/isn’t industrial grade) that gets the job done and done well! This single needle machine has a large embroidery field so that you can create large designs, unlike a lot of other domestic embroidery machines. This machine also features an independent bobbin winder so that you can wind bobbins as the machine embroiders! That way you can always have your next bobbin ready to go when you need to change them out!

+ Independent bobbin winder
+ USB Port and computer hook up to download extra patterns
+ Large embroidery space for a domestic machine

- Single needle - you can only have one colour threaded at a time.
