V-Sonic pen for sewing & embroidery
The V-Sonic Pen system uses ultrasonic technology to allow you to control several functions right on your fabric, so you can reduce the need to look away from your project. When sewing, easily make adjustments to needle position, set stitch width and position, select sewing end point and set laser guide position. When embroidering, easily adjust the design if the fabric has been hooped crooked.
Droplight LED embroidery positioning marker
Trying to guess where to drop the needle is a nightmare of the past! Use the embroidery foot with LED pointer to easily see your needle drop position – critical for embroidery. You can check the embroidery field easily with the trial key and the LED pointer. Also helpful while using the stitch forward and backward keys

Sewing straight has never been easier with the built-in laser guide. Now it’s even easier with the bright laser line for easier viewing on darker fabrics, and a wide range that extends up to 19mm. With double the brightness and manual adjustment, you will be able to see this guideline on virtually any fabric you can imagine.
