Wish you had a mid-priced, high-powered embroidery-only machine? Then the new DreamMaker® XE, with its industry-first features will help make your dreams come true. That's right – for those with a passion to embroider, the ultimate dream machine is here. The expansive 7'' x 12'' embroidery area is one of the largest workspaces available for home embroidery by Brother™.

The Droplight™ Embroidery Positioning Marker uses an LED pointer to show the needle drop position with pinpoint accuracy, which is critical for embroidery. With the V-Sonic™ Pen Pal use the sensor pen to automatically place your embroidery pattern by touching the desired center and upper portions on the fabric. For perfect corners and borders, touch two points on the edge line of the pattern's embroidery square field to easily align it.

Getting your design just right is easy with pattern rotation by 1 degree – use the LCD touch screen display to change the rotation angle of your design in one degree increments for precise placement. Change the background color of embroidery designs on the LCD touch screen display for editing ease and greater visibility during the preview process. Never worry about messy or unprofessional thread trims with automatic thread cutting.

SA520 Stabilizer Roll, lightweight, water soluble, 3.2yds

Genuine Brother® Accessory. This lightweight stabilizer is known as a film type of water soluble stabilizer. Up close it has the look of a clear plastic film but it actually washes away completely with warm water. This makes it ideal for situations when you need the stabilizer to completely disappear after you have finished stitching. Commonly used as a topping on napped fabrics such as towels, consider using this stabilizer on a wide variety of textured and napped fabrics where it is likely that the stitches will sink into the fibers. It is a good idea to add this topping when embroidering on knit fabrics to help raise the stitches above the tiny ribs found on many knits. This type of stabilizer is also a great added layer for embroidering sheer and lightweight fabrics including chiffon and organza. Simply add a layer on top of the fabric and on the bottom, sandwiching the thin fabric in between. Remember that the fabric you are using must be washable in warm water. In addition, keep in mind the fact that this provides only temporary support for the stitches. Some designs will require additional, non-removable stabilizer for support both during and after embroidery is complete.

SA519 Stabilizer Sheets, medium-weight, iron-on backing, 3 11"x12" sheets

Genuine Brother® Accessory. 3 pieces included. This white, paper fiber iron-on stabilizer provides a stable surface for machine embroidery, keeping fabric from stretching and distorting while it is in the hoop. This stabilizer is useful for projects that require a temporary stabilizer. Use a warm dry iron to attach to the wrong side (back) of your fabric. When finished with embroidery, gently tear-away remaining stabilizer. Test first for complete removal on delicate fabrics.

SA197 Embroidery Foot with LED Pointer

Trying to guess where to drop the needle is a nightmare of the past! Use the Droplight™ Embroidery Foot with LED Pointer to easily see your needle drop position. You can check the embroidery field easily with the trial key and new LED pointer. It is also helpful while using the stitch forward and backward keys!

SA280 Needle Felting Attachment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love LOVE my DreamMaker I am do pleased to own this incredible machine! I went from a brother LB6800 PRW (4x4 max design area) to the DreamMaker and I’m just “giddy” over have ability to do larger designs! I love the Brother machines!
Date published: 2018-01-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I have truly enjoyed making things for my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. My only suggestion would be to be more clear about the 2 year parts and labor guarantee. I was told I "use" my machine too much for the guarantee to hold. I know about a limit.
Date published: 2018-01-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine! I had an embroidery machine which I really liked, but traded to the VE2200 after a year, because I wanted the larger hoops and the jump stitches to be trimmed. So glad I did. I love this machine and the ability to do larger hoops. The larger screen is much nicer. I haven't tried the v-sonic pen yet, but am anxious to learn how to use it, it sounds like it will be very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Still learning about it and haven't received the free upgrade for the larger hoop but meanwhile I am having fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DreamMaker Everything I Dreamed It Would Be!! I didn't plan to purchase a new machine I already had a 4x4 Brother (PE-150) and another brand sewing/embroidery combo, but I couldn't walk away from the places and new projects the DreamMaker would take me! Only a single needle, but stitches smooth, fast, and beautifully. The technology of the machine guides the operator through each step of an embroidery design, even allowing you to back up or move forward 1 stitch, 10 stitches, or 100 stitches! I think my FAVORITE feature is the Low Bobbin alert. Oh, how many times I've stepped away from a design in process on my other machines only to return to a blank because the bobbin ran out and the machine kept stitching! The DreamMaker Low Bobbin alert actually uses right down to the last 6-10 inches of thread on the bobbin! No waste! I just LOVE my DreamMaker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase It stitches like a dream. I love the big screen, automatic needle threading and that it cuts the jump stitches.
Date published: 2017-12-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the DreamMaker VE 2200 The Dream Maker VE 2200 is my favorite sewing machine. The embroidery is gorgeous and the machine is easy to use. I purchase the hoop upgrade, which is the 12 X 8 inch. I get compliments on my embroidery designs. it is an awesome machine. I have embroidery tee shirts, fleece, terry cloth, cotton, and tee towels and every fabric/design has turned out beautiful.
Date published: 2017-11-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the big bucks! I opted for an embroidery-only machine since I use another machine for piecing, and I love having my embroidery machine ready to stitch when I want to use it. The stitch quality is beautiful and I got the best within my price range. I'm sad that it doesn't have Disney designs, and it doesn't come with the medium frame or some kind of software which means spending more $$$$ but on the whole it is a great machine.
Date published: 2017-11-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it but... I wish I had taken classes... I bought this from a friend and I can't believe what it can do and I know it can do alot more but I am learning as I go. It is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend buying one if you are interested.
Date published: 2017-11-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best embroidery machine I've had This is the 4th machine I've bought for embroidery and by far the best. The screen is easy to navigate and I love how fast it embroiders.
Date published: 2017-10-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this machine! I recently upgraded to the Brother DreamMaker XE VE2200 and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase! This machine is user friendly, very versatile, especially with the upgrade kit, and stitches beautifully. And the automatic thread cutting is a huge timesaver!
Date published: 2017-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good machine I hand a brother 770 and upgraded to this one. The difference is like day and night. Less thread breaking faster stitching and I LOVE the jump thread clipping.
Date published: 2017-10-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Layer out very well. Easy directions to follow. Work great every time. Great value for the price.
Date published: 2017-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It :) I already had a Brother NV800E but wanted a machine with larger hoops. I love Brother products so buying another was a no brainer. The VE2200 does everything I want it to do and I doubt whether I have used it to its fullest capacity yet. I have upgraded to the larger hoops and use them a lot. Also have the continuous border hoop which I haven't used. Would recommend :)
Date published: 2017-09-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long? I have been using a Brother 900-D for 5 years, upgraded to DreamMaker VE2200 recently--best purchase I have made in a very long time; It is an awesome machine.
Date published: 2017-09-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great features It has some great features and lots of hoop options. However, I have some issues with tension and stitch quality that I can't seem to get right. There is not a lot of on-line help and/or videos like there are with Janome machines for trouble-shooting.
Date published: 2017-09-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever I am so satisfied with my new machine purchase. This is my third brother embroidery machine and by far my favorite.
Date published: 2017-09-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from DreamMaker This is truly a dream easy to use for beginner like me. I already used it for several projects and I am delighted with my creations. The support is amazing any questions and I get help right away so happy with my purchase.
Date published: 2017-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is great! This machine has been great. It replaced a Babylock Ellegante. Since I already had two good sewing machines I needed a good embroidery machine. The upgrades on the DreamMaker make it much better. I feel like Brother listened to my thoughts on what would make a great machine and incorporated the changes.
Date published: 2017-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreammaker Great Machine Great machine that really proves itself. Beautiful work easy to operate. Glad to own this machine,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from XE VE2200 I love this machine. I'm still learning and discovering new things about this machine.
Date published: 2017-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love! I am in love with my Dream Maker! It is such a smooth running machine! I can't wait to do more things with it. I am "sew" impressed by the quietness of this machine.
Date published: 2017-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best machine I bought this machine last year and just love it. There are still a lot of things that I haven't taken the time to learn yet, but that's because I am having so much fun with what I have learned, it's hard to move on.
Date published: 2017-07-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most fun purchase ever! I am still learning but have found many projects I can do.....It's DREAMY.
Date published: 2017-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this machine! I upgraded from a Brother Simplicity Machine. It didn't have all the bells and whistles this machine has! Black and white screen and largest hoop was 5x7. The color screen is a life changer! I can see exactly where the needle is sewing at any given time. I can easily go back or skip forward. I love the automatic jump stitch cutter too! Makes everything look so professional and saves so much time on not having to hand snip threads. I use Embrillance Software to download a lot of my designs. I just insert my flash drive into the machine and my design pops up. I would HiGHLY recommend the DreamMaker VE 2200. I also enjoy that it's an embroidery only machine. That way I can be sewing on my Brother "sewing" machine while this machine is busy Embrodering!!
Date published: 2017-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dream Come True! I have been waiting for the day for the ability to own an Embroidery machine. I want to learn everything in one day (I know that is impossible) I love to use it and if not using it -- thinking about what to make next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this machine! This is a great machine. Even as a novice in embroidery, it is easy to use!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would love it more if... I love this machine but at the time of purchase I traded in a PE 780D, I didn't ask and felt a little pressured into this machine, which was along side the dream machine that had Disney designs in it. When I got home I realized that this machine didn't have Disney designs included. I was very disappointed as I have 2 grand daughter and love making things for them.
