Touch Screen Control

The color touch screen controller makes Journey easy to learn and operate. The animated display works together with the built-in laser pointer for precise positioning of designs on a garment, and key day-to-day functions are at your fingertips without leaving the main screen.  You can even customize the front screen apps to suit your workflow, just like a smartphone or tablet!  Auto error correction and maintenance hints help you keep on sewing trouble-free!

Large Sewing Field

With the included 12″ x 12″ hoop, HAPPY’s 7-needle Journey provides a distinct advantage over other machines in its class (under 100lbs) : the ability to sew large, deep designs designs in a single run.  This makes it practical for common applications like full jacket back or shirt front designs. No need to split tall designs into several sections and multiple hoopings.  With your Journey machine, you can take on small AND large projects!


The Journey machine gives its owner amazing flexibility: in addition to the many types of HAPPY-brand hoops, the machine is designed to accept most 3rd-party add-ons that vastly increase the range of items the machine can decorate.  A variety of clamps, magnetic hoops, fast-hoop type systems (and more!) lets embroiderers embellish items such as shoes, boots, car mats, purses, backpacks, pant legs, pockets… the list goes on.

Apps: Lettering & More

Create and customize straight from the machine itself! The onboard lettering app lets you pick from a variety of text styles, sizes and layouts.  Additionally, you can use the easy touch-and-drag “LAYOUT” application to merge it with any design, directly on-screen.  HAPPY machines make you more productive, right out of the box!

Open Front Design

Journey’s open front design affords unique advantages to the owner: the low-profile sewing arm (shown above) lets the machine easily handle small, difficult-to-sew items such as sleeves, cuffs, socks, many shirt pockets, golf club covers – just to name a few.  The machine’s excellent balance lets the sewing arm extend unsupported into empty space, unhindered by side-supporting legs that are found on other compact, multi-needle machines.  This allows you to mount some rather large items for personalization.  Click on the image above to see a few examples!

Laser Position Marker

Journey’s laser position marker makes it easy to check or precisely adjust design position in the hoop, before and/or during sewing.
