Foolproof Embroidery Design Positioning

Foolproof Embroidery Design Positioning


“It is important to have the right tool for the job.” That was some great advice I received from my father. A new essential tool in the embroidery industry is the snowman marker.

What is it that makes this little marker the right tool for the job? The snowman marker works with the Brother Quattro Sewing/Embroidery machine. It is a special marker because it works with the Innoveye™ camera to precisely, correctly position the chosen embroidery design in exactly the place it needs to be stitched. WOW! That means no more designs that are just a little crooked, or just a hair off center.

It is a simple matter to place the snowman marker exactly in the desired position on a garment, quilt block, or home dec item. Then hoop the fabric in the embroidery hoop. Install the hoop onto the machine. Select the icon on the screen that exactly matches the snowman marker, then press “scan” on the machine screen. The Innoveye™ camera will be activated and the camera will search for the snowman. The design will be automatically aligned to match the position of the marker. The design may be moved up or down, off center, rotated (even upside down) to make it exactly match the placement of the marker.

This incredible tool assures precisely accurate placement of every design and enables even a beginner will have perfectly placed embroidery. It also makes it possible to use the unbelievable print and stitch technology that is built into the machine.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to see the magic of the snowman, take a minute and visit one of the Quality Sewing Center locations and ask for a demonstration of this amazing tool. It is the right tool for the job when it comes to perfect placement of embroidery designs.
