Single head embroidery machines are the best embroidery machine types for start ups and small shops. Single head embroidery machines come in general types, 6 needle and 15 needle machines, but the 15 needle is usually a better choice. With a 6 needle embroidery machine, you may be able to handle most monogram jobs, but you’ll limit your ability to expand and spend more time than necessary swapping thread colors between jobs. A 15 needle single head embroidery machine is usually a better choice for a start up embroidery business, that’s why it’s such a popular configuration and why the new Avancé line from ColDesi came out with their comparable product specifically for startups, and at a lower price. SWF embroidery machines come in 2 models of 15 needle single heads. The E-1501C compact embroidery machine, and the E-1501T full sized single head embroidery machine. The E-1501C is a “compact” model that’s made for the embroidery business start up, or for businesses that don’t have a lot of space. With it’s small, 2.5’X2.5′ footprint, it can fit virtually anywhere. The SWF 1501C was once the most popular embroidery machine sold by ColDesi through theirSWFEast website, and for good reason! It had a comparatively low entry price, attractive lease payment options AND small size make it easy to own. But as you can see from the video above on the Avancé version – it is just as capable AND comes at a much smaller price tag.. up to $4,000 cheaper! http://www.avance-emb.com This graphic goes through all the features of the new Avancé as well – and makes a great case why this is a better machine for the startup embroidery business – you can find current pricing on the system here. All Avancé Embroidery Machines sold by ColDesi come with the following accessories per head, so you get this set of hoops when you purchase a 1501C, 4 sets if you buy a 4 head machine, etc. : 2 x 9cm Hoops 2 x 12cm Hoops 2 x 15cm Hoops 2 x 20cm Hoops 1 x 15″ x 21″ Jacket Back Hoop 2 x square hoops 12″ x 12″ Each machine also normally comes with a one of the Colman and Company Royal Embroidery Thread Kits and a collection of supplies that allows you to start running as soon as you get your new machine. The E-1501T version of an SWF single head embroidery machine is a full size, table model. This product gives you a larger sewing field than the 1501C, AND the ability to easily embroider onto larger or heavy items like leathers, Carhardtt jackets, etc, but it no longer fits through a standard doorway easily. The table version sells for a bit more than the “C” and can be found on the used embroidery machine market at SWF when they come in for trade ins. Of course, all of the commercial embroidery machines from ColDesi come with free embroidery software from Sierra, a 5 year warranty, free technical support and free training.
