Why buy from us?



The Brother Innov-is 880E embroidery machines will transform and personalise everyday clothing and accessories with unique colourful embroidery. It is packed full of easy-to-use features, many of which can be accessed via the central control panel and large 4.9” colour touchscreen.

Perfection comes as standard with this machine. Drop your needle exactly where it needs to be with the LED needle pointer for perfect positioning. The thread trimmer function neatly trims any excess threads for you. Bye, bye snips!

You can programme your machine to automatically lower the presser foot and start embroidering when you press the start/stop button. And the Brother Innov-is 880E automatically detects fabric being sewn and adjusts the tension to suit.

You’ll spend more time creating and less time setting up with the advanced needle threader, automatic upper and lower thread sensors, stitch out speeds of up to 850 stitches per minute and drop-in bobbin.

Featuring brand new embroidery designs, pattern editing and colour sorting, your projects will be ‘sew’ unique – just like you. A large working area and generous embroidery space of 260 x 160 mm give you plenty of room to express your creativity. And for our quilters, we’ve built-in new quilt embroidery blocks and border designs!

With wireless connectivity you can wirelessly transfer embroidery data with the free Design Database Transfer* program. You can also use the function to easily keep up with Brother’s software developments. Or use the built-in USB port to add more patterns directly to the machine.

The Innov-is 880E comes with built-in tutorials, so you’ll always have an embroidery tutor at your side.
