An inspiring new feature on the Innov-is XV is its ability to recognise line art. That means you can automatically create beautiful embroidery from hand-drawn designs, such as graffiti, pattern templates or even your signature. You simply use pen and paper to draw the outline, then put the paper on the scanning frame. The camera scans and recognises it. It’s then automatically turned into embroidery data on the Innov-is XV. You can also trace graphics with a pen to create running embroidery just like free-motion quilting. The Innov-is XV will convert a scanned image to data in seconds. Free-motion quilting normally takes lots of practice, but we’ve made it foolproof. Stippling With the Innov-is XV, you can easily add stippling embroidery wherever you like. You’ll achieve uniform results (unlike free-motion stippling, which relies on having a good technique). Simply hoop the fabric and choose the area where you want the stippling effect to appear. Select the stippling stitch and watch as your chosen area automatically fills with your stippling pattern. With the Innov-is XV, you’ll enjoy professional results every time. My Design Center My Design Center allows you to create your own embroidery designs quickly and easily, directly on the Innov-is XV touch screen.

Now you can also choose your preferred starting colour and the Innov-is XV will generate complementary colour combinations based on your favourite colours. Autopunch With the autopunch feature, you can now automatically turn scanned images or clip art files into embroidery data. Simply import a clip art image with the memory stick, or use the scanning frame to scan an image. The Innov-is XV will recognise the illustration and automatically translate it into embroidery data.
