Free-arm, tubular embroidery machine

Automatic 12 needles
12 needle automation means you don’t have to babysit your machine to change thread colours. The intelligent control panel will automatically select and move the needle head to the next colour, and start stitching without your input.
Large 320mm x 240mm embroidery area
Large designs are very popular and with a huge embroidery area to work with you can create stunning quilt blocks, wall hangings, jacket backs, table mats and much more.
Solid mobile steel stand included
Featuring a cutaway section on the table catering for bulky items, heavy duty and lockable castors, this high quality mobile stand offers great mobility and vibration free operation. This mobile stand is included with your Halo machine.
7” Colour Touch Screen with user friendly controls
Easy to use is the best way to describe the advanced 7” LCD colour touch screen with high-brightness and simple navigating. Loaded with unique features, it is capable of storing over one hundred million stitches with a huge 4 million stitch limit on individual designs. Visually see exactly where your design will stitch in reference to the hoop selected.
Built-in Fonts and Draw to Stitch/Doodle Pad Functions
Armed with 36 built-in scalable fonts, you can create unique monograms up to 100mm high. Plus, you have the capability of drawing on-screen to create personalized signatures and design elements with no computer software required.
Real time stitch simulator
Track your designs on-screen and preview your embroidery stitch out process. You will see exactly how your embroidered design will turn out.
Bright LED lighting
Illuminate your work area with the LED lighting feature. View your projects with a clear, bright workspace so you can see every detail.
Customizable Thread Colour palette
Assign thread colours on-screen to similarly match the actual colours on the machine. This makes setting the design colour selection and sequencing a breeze.
Automatic thread break detection
Thread breaks happen from time to time but the Halo will reliably and quickly detect a thread break and automatically revert up to 20 stitches back prior to rethreading the needle to ensure perfect resumption of stitching.
2 complete sets of hoops included
The Halo is supplied with a set of each of the most popular hoop sizes including 90mm round, 120mm round, 170mm round and a 320mm x 240mm (12.59" x 9.44") hoop. Round hoops provide superior fabric holding capabilities. These hoop sets are a standard inclusion with the machine.
LED laser light positioning system
The built-in LED laser pointer shows the approximate position of the needle drop point and makes for easy design placement and tracing for most applications. Or for precise needle point accuracy use the special "needle down" position function.
Unique hoop numbering system
The machine’s clever hoop numbering system will prevent you from stitching a design that is outside the permitted embroidery area.
Independent bobbin winder included
Wind bobbins independently using a fast commercial style bobbin winding unit. It features an adjustable auto stop function to prevent over winding.
Adjustable Take Up Check Spring
The thread take-up check spring is integral to a well-balanced stitch which can vary depending on the type of thread you use, such as metallic or even the different weights of a conventional embroidery thread. Each needle features an easily adjustable check spring to ensure consistent stitching. While rarely needed by the operator, it's reassuring to have this fine tuning ability.
Automatic Thread Trimming & Jump Stitch Detection
Thread trimming is a must-have on any embroidery machine but combined with jump stitch detection which will tie off and trim those unwanted jump stitches, you’ll have virtually no unsightly threads to unpick or remove when the design is completed.
The Halo features a wick feed oil system to keep the needle bar mechanisms running smoothly without requiring regular oiling by the user.
Fast 1000 stitches per minute
The Halo is fast with an industrial grade servo motor to handle a genuine speed of 1000 stitches per minute. The heavy-duty step motors that drive the embroidery frame ensure precise accuracy regardless of the item being embroidered.
The machine features two USB ports and a network port, making it easy to transfer patterns and designs. Uses industry standard DST format.
Maintenance tool kit included
Maintaining your embroidery machine is important and the Halo is supplied with a quality tool kit to keep your machine up to scratch.
Wide Table Support Platform included
The included support platform is a huge benefit when embroidering heavy items like bathrobes and large towels. It helps prevent the possibility of the item popping out of the hoop while stitching.
Easy hassle free thread stand
12 needles means 12 threads and the Halo thread stand allows easy access for changing spool colours. Plus you can use all types and sizes of embroidery thread spools, including the economical 5000m cones. The thread tube delivery system ensures less tangles for hassle free embroidery.
Thread tension adjustment
Adjust each thread tension individually using the dials on the top of the machine to achieve smooth, quality stitches.

Halo 100By: Terri-lyn on 15 August 2022I purchased this machine about 3 weeks ago .It was delivered 2 weeks ago.You need 2 people to move and assemble it, as the machine and stand both weigh a tad shy of 40 kgs each. The Halo 100 is a very stable sitting on the table that is included with the machine. The stand is very solid . A bit daunting at first after setting it up but watching Echidnas videos makes using it pretty simple as thigs are explained clearly. It does come with a manual also. I had 1 slight problem with hoop size and Gary was so helpful at explaining and guiding me through some measurements to get it right. Its stitches beautifully and I'm so glad I decide to purchase this machine. Probably the cheapest 12 needle you will find in AU. A few more videos and more versatile hoops to come will be a great addition
Halo-100 Embroidery MachineBy: SuHan on 9 August 2022I purchased this machine last month, and received it about 3 weeks ago. I've been using it pretty frequently and it has been very reliable so far. Normally, home embroidery machines have hoop shifting issues. I found the Halo100 pretty stable, wth no hoop shifts even when I remove and return the hoop for applique. I am also enjoying how I no longer need to use embroidery topping in many cases. It's easy to thread despite how daunting it looks, and easy to set up. You will still need embroidery software on your computer to use this effectively. Personally I did not realise how big the package would be when it came (2x roughly 40kg boxes), and you do need 2 people to move and assemble it. But the table the machine sits on is wonderfully solid and portable after assembly. The stitching has been mostly great and my only issue is that the bobbin could be bigger (but I have this issue with all sewing machines anyway). At this price, you probably won't find a better deal in Australia. The machine's manual is currently lacking but I've been told echidna sewing is working on making videos covering the use of this machine, so this should be a non-issue in the future. I have no regrets in purchasing this machine.
