Features in depth

New high resolution screen
The Innov-is XV comes with a new 10.1" high-resolution touch screen that makes editing your embroidery so much easier. There’s also an improved user interface, with better on-screen design-editing features. Along with a new, even faster processor, we’ve added a super-large embroidery area for maximum convenience. Edit on-screen embroidery, customise your settings, view on-screen video tutorials and built-in help guides that recommend the perfect settings for your sewing and much more.

Camera-eye system
A new intelligent camera-eye system means better embroidery positioning. Thanks to the LED pointer, you can see exactly where the needle will drop. You’ll get an accurate on-screen preview before you start embroidering. And the magnified view of the needle position lets you see your work in detail.

Lock stitch key
– at the touch of a button, tie-off stitches can be sewn at the beginning
and end of the stitch. When pressing the lock stitch key while sewing a decorative stitch,
the machine will stop automatically after completing the motif.

ICAPS – helps to ensure consistent stitch length on all fabric thicknesses by keeping
the presser foot pressure consistent, regardless of fabric thickness.

Edge sewing sensor – detects the edge of fabric to ensure uniform stitching at the
desired distance from the edge of the fabric, even on curves.

Laser line guide – next-generation laser-line guide system projects a perfect straight line
onto your fabric. Simply guide your fabric along the line for straight sewing. Ideal for
hems, piecing, pin tucking or cording.

Direct dual-drive – this advanced foot allows you to feed an array of fabrics such as
denims or silks with ease. The motor-driven dual-drive foot can be directly adjusted from
the touch screen to accommodate different fabrics.

Ultrasonic pen – works with sensors in the Innov-is XV to set the straight stitch needle
position, to set the start and end point for your stitches and can also be used to adjust
the width of zigzag and decorative stitches.

My custom stitch
– allows you to create your own stitch designs directly onto the
LCD touch screen. Includes more than 40 built-in stitch templates.

Ultra-bright feature lighting
The ultra-bright LED lighting gives a crisp, bright natural light, so you can see colours and stitch details, no matter what your lighting conditions. The lighting brightness is fully adjustable so you can set it at a level to suit you and your environment.

Central controls
Handy central controls help make sewing simpler. Touch buttons provide fingertip control of machine functions.

Slide speed control

Adjust the speed from slow to fast. This can also be set to alter stitch width whilst sewing.


Direct dual-feed for thin or layered fabrics. Includes two changeable feet:
• Standard dual-feed foot
• Couching dual-feed foot

11¼" (285mm) long arm
Create even larger projects with the extra-large sewing space, ideal for quilting projects.

Automatic electronic needle threading
Threading the needle is so simple, at the touch of a button.

Knee lift
Free up your hands using this knee lift to raise/lower the presser foot. Ideal when working on larger projects such as quilts.

Extra large embroidery area (9½ x 14", 240 x 360mm)

Create extra large embroidery designs with no need to re-hoop.

Quick-set bobbin
Just drop in a full bobbin and be ready to sew immediately.

Independent bobbin winding
A dedicated bobbin winding motor enables new bobbins to be wound even while you continue to sew.

USB ports

Connect a USB device such as a memory stick or a card reader/writer.

SFDS – Square Feed Drive System
Square Feed Drive System provides super-smooth fabric feeding for superior stitch quality

Lock stitch button
At the touch of a button, tie-off stitches can be easily sewn at the beginning and end of the stitch. When pressing the button while sewing a decorative stitch, the machine will stop automatically after completing the motif.

Thread colour indicator
Multi-coloured LED light helps to see the colour of the thread that is needed for the embroidery design.

My Design Centre
My Design Center allows you to create your own embroidery designs quickly and easily, directly on the Innov-is XV touch screen. This powerful and unique feature allows you to create your own embroidery designs from clip art image files or draw directly on the large touch screen.

Line art recognition
Prepare to be amazed. An inspiring new feature on the Innov-is XV is its ability to recognise line art. That means you can automatically create beautiful embroidery from hand-drawn designs, such as graffiti, pattern templates or even your signature. You simply use pen and paper to draw the outline, then put the paper on the scanning frame. The camera scans and recognises it. It’s then automatically turned into embroidery data on the Innov-is XV. You can also trace graphics with a pen to create running embroidery just like free-motion quilting. The Innov-is XV will convert a scanned image to data in seconds. Free-motion quilting normally takes lots of practice, but we’ve made it foolproof.

With the Innov-is XV, you can easily add stippling embroidery wherever you like. You’ll achieve uniform results (unlike free-motion stippling, which relies on having a good technique). Simply hoop the fabric and choose the area where you want the stippling effect to appear. Select the stippling stitch and watch as your chosen area automatically fills with your stippling pattern. With the Innov-is XV, you’ll enjoy professional results every time.

Colour shuffling
The enhanced Colour Shuffling function makes it easy to choose new colour schemes for embroidery designs. Select from Random, Gradient, Vivid and Soft styles and a range of colour combinations will be displayed on screen. Simply select your preferred option and embroider the design. Now you can also choose your preferred starting colour and the Innov-is XV will generate complementary colour combinations based on your favourite colours.

With the autopunch feature, you can now automatically turn scanned images or clip art files into embroidery data. Simply import a clip art image with the memory stick, or use the scanning frame to scan an image. The Innov-is XV will recognise the illustration and automatically translate it into embroidery data. No computer required Your sewing machine won’t need to be hooked up to a computer. It’s fast, fun, simple and convenient.
