Embroidery, as a durable fashionable element, makes great progress recently after the technological revolution. A long time ago people would embroider special patterns on their clothes to make them look more pretty. Historical studies have shown that people used embroidery as early as 30,000 BC. Embroidery and many other needlework arts are thought to originate in the East or the Middle East. People often embroider delicate patterns on their clothes, which are often symbols of identity and status. Since the 19th century, with the rapid development of technology, machine embroidery has gradually replaced traditional hand embroidery. In addition, with the continuous innovation of technology, the cost of an embroidery machine has become lower and lower. It is possible for you to have a small embroidery machine of your own. Today, I will introduce you to such an embroidery machine, Brother PE800.

Why Choose This Machine?
When I first came into contact with the embroidery machine industry, I knew Brother PE800. Although I was only a rookie at that time, I could always hear friends who were familiar with embroidery machines talking about this machine. They are always saying; I want to change an advanced embroidery machine. I heard that PE800 performed well; how do you feel about it. That is my first meeting with PE800. As I learned about embroidery more and more, I started to test more embroidery machines, including this one. Therefore, I would like to write this review to help when more people choose the right embroidery machine.
Each embroidery machine has its own distinctive design. And PE800’s unique design is its oversized embroidery area, which offers you the possibility to embroider large projects. From a small piece of clothing to a quilt, this machine can achieve all of them easily.
Another very eye-catching feature of this machine is its USB connectivity. With this feature, you can expand the embroidery design you have and embroider more distinctive patterns at any time.
Then it comes to the number of its built-in embroidery designs. It has a total of 136 embroidery designs and 11 letters. That means you have a lot of built-in designs to choose even without the USB function, significantly meeting the needs of home embroidery.
Because of the limited length of the article, here I have listed the three most eye-catching functions of PE800. If you want to know more about its features, please continue to look down.
Special Features of PE800
1. Large embroidery area
Brother has a larger embroidery area than the typical embroidery machines, 5”×7”. This feature gives you the possibility to cast your embroidery on larger fabrics. If you want to embroider on the quilt, the Brother PE800 is an ideal choice. Of course, if you don’t like such a large embroidery area, you can also buy an extra 4”×4” embroidery hoop to fulfill your needs.
2. USB connectivity
I always think that for a high-end embroidery machine, having a USB connection is a must. Because the USB connection function represents whether this is an embroidery machine that can be improved. With this feature, you will not be limited by the built-in embroidery designs, and you can download more of your favorite design at any time.
3. The number of built-in designs
As an advanced embroidery machine, this machine has more built-in embroidery designs. It has a total of 136 embroidery patterns meeting the needs of everyday home embroidery. In addition, it has 11 built-in letter patterns, so if you are a monogramming enthusiast, PE800 can satisfy you. Also, PE800 can be used for hat embroidery as long as you purchase an extra embroidery hoop for it.
4. Super bright work area
It features an ultra-bright work area. It comes with built-in LED lights, which give you the possibility to embroider and sew in dark conditions. In addition, with this function, you can see the embroidery works more clearly, and the embroidery patterns will become more refined.
5. A color touch LCD display
A full-color LCD touch screen is a very useful feature. The touch screen of it has function keys such as selection, enlargement, and determination. With them, you can easily select and reorganize patterns on display. This gives you the possibility to edit your own embroidery design.
Few things you need to pay attention to
1. The type of machine
This is an embroidery only machine without sewing function. If you just want a machine specializing in embroidering, PE800 is an ideal choice. However, if you’re going to purchase a device combining embroidery and sewing features, PE800 is not suitable for you, unless you are willing to buy another sewing machine.
3. The price of PE800
The price of Brother PE800 is not very low, at about $500. So if you have enough budget to afford this fee, Brother PE800 is a perfect choice. However, if you don’t have enough budget, you can buy a cheap one first, and change an advanced embroidery machine in the future when your embroidery skills are improved.
Pros and Cons
Overall, this is an advanced embroidery machine suitable for home or home business. It comes with a lot of useful embroidery functions, including a large embroidery area, LCD touchscreen, and USB connectivity. With these features, you can improve your embroidery level quickly.
