Solaris 2’s built-in IQ Visionary™ projector displays stitches and embroidery designs directly on the fabric. Resize, move or make other adjustments with the touch of a wireless stylus – all while seeing it happen in real time before you sew it out. Perfect placement is achieved every time.
Precise Embroidery Placement
While in embroidery mode, choose from three different projection backgrounds (black, grey, or white) based on fabric choices to see your design clearly. The needle drop laser is displayed in a point or a “T” pattern for an even more precise placement.
Perfect Sewing Placement
The Solaris 2 uses a variety of guideline markers and grids for perfect placement. While in sewing mode, switch between three different laser colors (red, green and white) for better visibility based on fabric choices. Single, double, angles and grid lines are ideal for piecing precision, stitch adjustment and aligning starting points and very wide stitches.
10-5/8" x 16" and 10-5/8" x 10-5/8" Hoop Sizes

IQ Intuition™ Monitoring App
Keep track of your project’s progress with this convenient feature that alerts your phone when the bobbin needs to be changed, if a thread breaks, if a thread needs to be changed and when stitching is done. (Free smart phone app for download is required).

Draw directly on the screen, scan in your favorite artwork, upload an existing file to the Solaris 2 using a USB drive, or wirelessly send designs to your machine from your smart phone using the IQ Intuition Positioning App. Your art will be instantly converted into an embroidery pattern (free smartphone app for download is required)
Auto Split of Large Quilt Borders

Simply enter a few measurements, select a hoop, and the Solaris 2 does the necessary calculations for you. The on-screen instructions guide you every step of the way for quilts measuring up to 118” x 118”. You can even repeat or skip sections, if necessary.

You’ll have total control over every single aspect of your stitches, embroidery designs, placement, colors and more on a large touchscreen with slide scrolling menus and pinch in/out zooming.

Camera Detecting Buttonhole Foot
The Solaris’ camera automatically senses pre-set points on the buttonhole foot, providing an accurate, better sew out. The two-piece foot secures the fabric, preventing slippage.
