The MC550E dedicated embroidery only machine has one of the industry’s largest work spaces!

The new RE36b is an exclusive hoop to the 550E and has an embroidery field of 200 x 360mm (7.9” X 14”).That’s huge! We’ve even added an extra-large table to ensure that your embroidery projects are always properly supported. The 550E is able to work with varying conditions by simply changing your embroidery sewing speed in the easy to access Settings Menu. Go slower with delicate metallic threads (400spm) or take it to the max (860spm) when filling in a large stitch intensive area. The machine will automatically stop when it’s time to change the thread colour, ready for the automatic thread cutter to snip your threads. Multi-colour designs can be converted to a single colour pattern at the touch of a button. Additional embroidery designs can easily be imported into the 550E via the USB port. You can create multiple folders to organise and save your designs. Your MC550E can be updated. It’s amazing what you can create with the Memory Craft 550E!
