With professional level embroidery technologies and more room to create, you’ll get a faster finish, perfect placement and fuss free stippling, whenever you sit down to embroider.


The Stellaire Innov-is XE1 embroidery machine benefits from an LED drop needle pointer for laser precision perfect positioning and faster embroidery speeds of up to 1,050 spm. There’s a bright 10.1” HD LCD display and enhanced LED lighting with five settings, including off.

Featuring a super-size 9,5 x 14" (240 x 360mm) embroidery area and 11.25” (286mm) from needle to arm, there’s always room to create. From quilts to curtains, wedding dresses to bulky coats, you can work quickly and comfortably on just about anything.

Let your imagination and creativity run wild with the extensive library of over 700 built-in embroidery designs, including Disney and monograms. Awaken your inner artist with easy-to-use text editing, colour shuffling and enhanced thread colour palettes, with expanded brand and colour choices.

There’s perfect positioning from your mobile with Stellaire’s new My Design Snap app. Use your mobile device for quick, easy and precise embroidery positioning. Just take a picture of your fabric in the special embroidery hoop and wirelessly send the data to your Stellaire Innov-is XE1.

Unleash your design potential and capture happy memories using My Design Snap to convert images, photos, handwriting or line drawings into embroidery data. Snap your image, send wirelessly to your Stellaire and your machine will convert to stitch data and transform into your own unique works of art.

Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as designing your own pieces the Stellaire comes with our powerful, easy-to-use editing programme, My Design Center, built in. Draw or doodle directly on the large LCD display.

Have an illustration, jpeg or clip art you love? You can even pair My Design Center with My Design Snap to convert your own images into unique embroidery designs. You can even ‘draw’ straight onto your fabrics, using the touchscreen to convert your designs into embroidery data.  

The Stellaire Innov-is XE1 embroidery machine’s precision technology means that whatever you create, draw or upload, your embroidery is always on point.
