What a marvelous machine, the NEW Innovis F440e by Brother, replacing the already fantastic 750e. Yet, the F440e is even better. Let me tell you why! Firstly it has a full colour screen so you can view the colourful designs onscreen and see each colour block as it would be sewn out in colour...remember the old machine had a monochrome screen and it was a best seller. The F440e touch screen is also larger at 82 mm x 45 mm. This feature alone jumps the F440e to number one position in the dedicated embroidery class and all at the same price! Plus it has even more new features.
I’m sure you can tell already that we like this machine. It's simple to import patterns found on the internet instantly via direct USB memory stick. This new and improved dedicated embroidery machine can be used in conjunction with Brother's optional PE Design software, where designs can be created from scratch or converted to Brother PES file format from an image, clip art or photo, then saved onto a USB memory stick and sewn off using the machine.
The F440e has plenty of built in designs and appliqué embroidery. It also has larger letters up to 150mm using the resize option, frames and borders and even free-motion fill that quilters will adore. In total it has 11 fonts in 3 sizes including Cyrillic, and Japanese. Once you have a design personalised as you would like it and may be you would like to use again, save it to the machine memory or to a USB stick directly from the machine.
Don’t worry if you need help at any stage we are here to advise or answer any questions you may have. In the box you receive 3 manuals, one is for late night reading... the operation manual will send you to sleep in no time at all. The other would be best read at the breakfast table; it’s the colourful designs catalogue help inspire selecting your next stitching project. The quick reference guide can be kept near the machine. Personally I would suggest powering up the machine and getting used to the touch screen icons as you go, the interface is very user friendly in deed.
Using it you can create high quality embroidery designs quickly and easily.

Thread sensor for upper thread

It can be viewed in hoop or individually. In a lettering string (a word), each letter can be individually changed. You can skip forward or backwards during a design one stitch at a time.
Large embroidery area
The F440e has an embroidery area of 18cm x 13cm (7”x5”), but you can express yourself further by using the optional PE design software and split larger designs to be sewn using the optional 12"x5" hoop. In total 4 hoops sizes are available; The included EF84 standard (7”x 5”). Optional EF85 Multiposition 12"x5", EF83 square (4”x4”) and Small oval EF82 (1”x 2 ½”)
Wide variety of built-in embroidery patterns
Start embroidering right away with any of the 138 built-in embroidery patterns found on the F440e. Choose from a range of floral, animals, seasonal designs and much more.
Just drop in a full bobbin and you're ready to go. The F440 e has a lower bobbin sensor which will warn you when the bobbin is running low.
Advanced needle threader
Not just a traditional needle threader! Threading is simple...just follow the threading guides, then a quick push down on a lever on the upper left face and hey-presto the deluxe quick thread system automatically threads the needle.
