Digital Embroidery Machines
The Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS)
This proposal requests funds to purchase two digital sewing machines: a Janome MB-4S four-needle embroidery machine and a Brother PE770 embroidery machine. To the best of our knowledge, at the present time, the student community does not have a digital embroidery sewing machine available. The digital sewing machines in this proposal will encourage students from across campus to create their own works of art using this sophisticated software and hardware and will stimulate inventive educational practices while introducing essential industrial techniques. This equipment will provide undergraduate and graduate students the means to familiarize themselves with emergent digital-craft technologies and facilitate the interweaving between fashion, engineering, and art.
