Embroidery Machines / Storing an embroidery unit
« on: February 16, 2021, 11:37:10 AM »
I'm a lucky new owner of a Brother Innovis V5 and my husband is drawing up plans to build a sewing cabinet for it, and I'm just wondering which is the best way to store the embroidery carriage/unit.  Should it be kept flat and horizontal or can I stand it up on end secured against a side of the cabinet?  I don't want to risk damaging it after just a few uses!   We may be able to allow a few more centimetres to keep the unit in the polystyene packaging it came in.  My sewing cabinet seems to be getting bigger by the minute  >:)

Sewing Machines / Brother Innovis V5 Limited Edition - information needed

I've decided to upgrade my sewing machine to allow me to make larger quilts and embellish them with embroidery.  After weeks (ney months) of research I have pre-ordered a Brother V5LE (from Frank Nutt) which seems to more than cover my needs.  Because of current world problems I may not receive it for months but in the meantime my husband is keen to build a sewing cabinet for it with airlift mechanism.  So, I need to know the overall dimensions of the machine eg length, depth and height for him to be able to draw up plans and cut apertures etc.  I have asked several retailers for dimensions but unless they have that machine in their shop they just don't know.  Even Brother couldn't help me! 

Does anyone have a Brother V5LE and could they kindly measure it for me?

I'm a newbie here and this is my first post.  Sorry to start with a request for help  :|

Thank you in anticipation.

I have been sewing all my life. My grandmother taught me to use her hand crank Singer when I was about four and I am still using it today, together with my trusty Janome machine.  I don't do much garment sewing these days though I do make my own trousers.  Most of my needlework seems to be items for the home or gifts for family.  Over the last eighteen months I have been teaching myself machine quilting and have made several cot and crib quilts, so I hope to widen my knowledge from the more experienced quilters here.  I look forward to 'meeting' you all.
