The E1501C Single Head Machine from SWF is where most of our customers opening new embroidery businesses start, and many just keep adding as they grow!

There are several  videos spread throughout the website that show the 1501C in action, but the real story, and what you need to know is:

Is the SWF 1501C the Best Embroidery Machine for Me?

The answer depends on many factors, including what you want from your Embroidery Business, who your customers are, what market you serve and, of course, what your budget is. But E/1501C might be the one for you if:

You need something Compact

You need a commercial machine that will do the job

The SWF 1501C is a single head machine designed for commercial use. That means it can handle just about any job you throw at it! Monograms, easy, left chest logos, simple, complex 15 color designs, absolutely!

You need something Fast

After all, your business depends on how much you can produce. The commercial machines that SWF designs run at up to 1,200 stitches per minute! While you won't run them that fast often, that extra speed and power is there when you need it most. Imagine how much you can produce with that kind of speed.

You need something Portable

That's right, if you are planning on doing events or shows, the SWF 1501C from Stitch It International is the perfect product. Not only is it small, and fits on the end of a retail counter top, but it's only 140lbs so it's easy to transport. AND at 2.5 ft. tall, you can fit it into the back of many SUVs and mini-vans.

You want to embroidery on Caps
