Introducing the PE Design Next Upgrade from Brother PE Design Plus. Upgrade your sewing power to Next version 9.2

Easily cut and embroider your designs, without stopping between steps to change needles. After running the upgrade on your PR-Series embroidery machine, replace needles 1-4 with the four color-coded cutwork needles, then thread the remaining needles as usual. Now, your PR-Series embroidery machine will be ready to embroider -and- cut your design, without having to switch out cutting and embroidery needles—one of the perks to owning and operating a multi-needle machine!

Furthermore, expand your resources with 30 cutwork embroidery designs! Perfect for the cutwork novice, this selection includes beautiful patches, appliqués, and cutwork, all directly from your PR-Series machine. No PC connection required!

Basic Cutwork - Embroider & Cut the Included Designs.

This kit includes 30 beautiful .pes cutwork designs, which you can have your PR-series machine embroider and cut - No PC required!

Intermediate Cutwork - Create Appliqués From Your Own .Pes Files

Turn any .pes lettering or design file into an appliqué - No PC required! Use the .pes files built into your PR-series machine, or import your own .pes files, and have your PR machine embroider and cut the design. Choose from the range of outline cutting shapes, and cutting functions, for custom creations!
