Entering the world of embroidery never has been easier. The Brother Skitch PP1 is the perfect embroidery machine for those who have little to no experience in embroidery.

Artspira App instead of expensive embroidery software

Anyone who has ever had to deal with larger embroidery machines knows that the associated software in particular costs half a fortune. The Skitch PP1 is different: the embroidery machine is controlled with the free Artspira app. This includes up to 500 free embroidery files and many different editing options. On top of that, the Artspira app guides you step by step through the embroidery process and shows you the individual editing steps with pictures and videos - a sense of achievement guaranteed.

An Artspira+ subscription can be taken out on request. This costs 12.99 dollar per month and enables additional editing options and up to 7,000 embroidery designs. However, the upload of external designs remains limited (20 in the free version and 100 in the paid version). Further information on the Artspira app can be found here (DE).

The Artspira app can also be used to control your Brother plotter.


Threading made easy

Threading is a breeze with the Skitch PP1:
Numbers and small graphics on the machine show you where to guide the thread. The machine then does the threading itself for you. It really couldn't be easier.

No slipping with magnetic embroidery frame

Clamp your desired material in the magnetic 100 x 100 mm embroidery frame so that it does not slip during the process. You then position the motif in the embroidery software. Insert the thread, press the button, done.

No towel is safe from you

Your own band logo on the T-shirt, names on the towels, cute little animals on the baby hat, stylish motifs on the potholders, the Skitch PP1 offers so many possibilities! Once you start, you'll find it hard to stop. No towel is safe from you and your friends, children, colleagues and relatives can already look forward to lots of great gifts.

Bin begeistert. Einfaches Handling und das Ergebnis ist perfekt. Habe den Kauf trotz des Preises nicht bereut. Werde mir jetzt nicht den kleinen Rahmen zulegen.

Zuerst, der Service, Freundlichkeit, Kompetenz des Shop sind sehr gut und 5 Sterne wert.
Die Stickmaschine hat mich enttäuscht. Einzig wirklich gut ist der Magnetrahmen und der Freiarm. Die Software (auf iOS) installiert ist unausgereift. Positionieren mit Foto vom Rahmen ist gut gedacht aber sehr schlecht umgesetzt. Das quasi erforderliche Abo (ohne Abo keine Rahmen, wenig Schriftarten,…) ist aber mit monatlichen Kosten verbunden.
Die Maschine selbst ist einfach gemacht und meine hat schon bei der unvermeidlichen Demo Fehler produziert (ausgelassene Stiche). Der Einfädler funktioniert nicht zuverlässig. Die Fadenspannung ist nicht reproduzierbar einzustellen usw.
Nach 3 kleinen Stickdateien von denen keine ohne Fehler war habe ich die Maschine zurück gegeben.
Dies hat dann ohne Probleme funktioniert.
