Design & Control at your Fingertips
My Stitch Monitor Mobile App
Enable wireless LAN connectivity between your PC and the Luminaire 3 to keep track of your embroidery with the My Stitch Monitor mobile app on your iOS® or Android™ device.

Artspira Mobile App – Available Fall 2022
A one-stop shop for embroidery and cutting designs so you can easily customize your next project2. Design line-art-inspired drawings right in the palm of your hand with built-in embroidery drawing tools and optional stitch types (straight and zigzag stitch). With all these tools at your fingertips, design hand-drawn drawings up to 4″ x 4″ (100mm x 100mm) and 5″ x 7″ (130mm x 180mm) right on your mobile device and then transfer your creations to the Luminaire 3.
Unique Design Techniques
Stitch Tapering Function
Add a nice, professional taper to jeans, tops, and home décor. Simply choose the stitch you would like to use, the angle of the start and end of the taper, and the number of repeat stitches in the pattern cycle.
Ornate Long Stitch Technique
Use any of the 10 Long Stitch built-in designs to add a unique geometric enhancement to just about any project. This technique resembles string art with dramatic long stitches layered to create a unique embellishment.
Large Connect Designs
When you want to ‘go big’ on your next embroidery project, the five built-in large connect embroidery designs are a great starting point. Select from ornate flowers, birds, and other elaborate designs that range from 721mm x 383mm (28″ x 15″) and when combined, allows you to create a large ensemble.
Creative Yarn Couching
Enhance your creations with a new technique so you can embroider “letters.” When you fill in the characters using yarn (the color of your choice), you give it a 3D effect. You can use upper case letters, (approx. 3” tall), lower case, numbers, and all characters are also resizable for even more flexibility.
65 Square Inches of Workspace
With the powerful combination of the large 65 square inches of workspace – the largest of any Brother machine – and the generous 13.1″ needle to arm span, projects of any size are easily managed. Our largest needle to arm is a dream for any sewer, embroiderer, crafter or quilter, with the ability to easily accommodate a rolled king-size quilt.
Optional 10″ x 10″ Magnetic Frame
Hoop thick materials with ease. Avoid fabric shifting and the need to rehoop the fabric when connecting designs or embroidering large areas. Just slide the fabric on the frame for the next area to be embroidered. (Additional purchase required)
