Sew Color What

Sew all your colors, matched! The genius, as in most my favorite things, is in the simplicity of it all. This sewing machine right here is made for everyone, but fits right in with those who wish to enter the craft of attaching clothing to itself with thread. New sewers! This is for you. But for you perfectionists, you might want your paws to seek. Electromagnetic need drive. Filigree upper arm design. Openness. The workspace is wide open. Backlit work area, with the stitch pattern projected on to the fabric it’s about to be sewn onto. PLUS!

And a BET you wonder what the ink is for.

What’s that ink for? That’s crazy bringing ink that close to a bunch of fabric! No way man, just be careful. But wait what’s it for? It’s for the thread. It’s a yarn printer. You match up the color you need at the top, and this baby prints the ink as you go. And with a pneumatic JetAir-system handling your threading, you’ll be jamming out the thread quick and nice as a whip.

This project is called “Leitfaden” and I want one.

BONUS: There’s a simple slick table that matches up with the machine too!

DOUBLE BONUS: Can you guess how the Lietfaden aims to be environmentally supportive? Check it out: you know those amazing yet impossible-to-match old fabrics you see in used clothing at the second hand store? Instead of buying new fabric, tear those old rags apart and match em up here! All you need is a swatch, which can be a tiny rip of the clothing you’re about to sew, and bang! You’ve got that thread at your fingertips.

    So this is going to soak the cotton in the desired colour, dry it, spool it onto a yarn and sew it into the fabric on the spot is it? I don’t think so.

  • Dawn says:

    I love this concept. Are they for sale? Does the thread bleed when washed?

  • TheBlonde says:

    While I am wondering how it is going to dye the cotton, dry it, and spool it to use on cotton fabric without running… I am loving the concept and the design!

  • Kreuzritter says:

    Great and innovative design – i belive that it would make the workflow during the taloring much more easy and is very helfull.

    Even if the complete function is not logical if you starring on the pics only.

    It´s an minimal design and thats what i <3 on it 🙂

    This is amazing. Is this available on an industrial level? You can’t imagine the amount of thread we have in our factory. Is the technology available just to dye thread? Polyester thread?

  • Long Tran says:

    CHRIS I WANT THIS!

  • Rick says:

    it’s really really great concept

  • Iceseven says:

    That would be an instant buy.
    Heck, any sewing machine looking like that would be good, if it can dye thread or not.

  • yahaira says:

    I LOVE the look of this machine. finally something exciting and different in machines. My only gripe would be the bobbin. If you’re redesigning the sewing machine, then go for a bigger bobbin! hell, let me put in a whole spool as my bobbin.

  • mif991 says:

    While I like the friendly and simple look of this machine, I am incredulous about the “color printing” of the yarn and its potential high cost to replace the carthridges. As a concept, it is beautiful and having seen many radical sewing machine designs, this has to be one of the best.

  • IAmThatStrange says:

    Confucius speaks wisely, I don’t think so either. I can all kinds of problems, ink not drying and bleeding into the cloth, ink leaking and oh wouldn’t that be a mess. Colors not mixing correctly (heck I have a hard enough time with color printers).

    I was a Costume designer in another life. I’m now a graphic designer. I work with both color ink and color thread. I wouldn’t trade my Bernina for one.

  • Nina says:

    I think the design department has been drinking too much, or smoking too much ofsomething.
    It sounds like fun ,to have such a fantasy machine.

  • Maride says:

    I wouldn’t trade my Bernina for it but it would certainly look nice next to it.

  • florinda says:

    I want one ! When ? Where ? Finally something happen in the stiching design… Thank you for imagining the thing ! Some fresh air !

  • Nancy Bellnier says:

    This is very cool. Is it for sale anywhere?

  • Jerry says:

    Very cool concept, but also concerned about inked thread running, especially in the wash. Also noticed no seam allowance markings on the bed of the machine. How would you determine what your seam allowance is?

  • Kevin says:

    I think that thread is going to be a lot more expensive, given the cost of ink cartridges, and there isn’t much room under that arm. If you’re really going to re-design the machine, then why not give the space of a longarm machine?

    I’ll wait until you design the machine as a ceiling mounted device that is mounted directly over the floor mounted bobbin/faceplate assembly, thereby eliminating ANY arm. THAT would be TRULY a “wide-open workspace.”

  • arlee says:

    Oh PUH leaze—–that’s a very limited range of colours for fibre artists, and as points raised by others, does it bleed? Is the colour uptake enough to load the whole thread without white spots? How much thread does the bobbin hold? How (very) expensive are the little cartridges to replace? Can i get them easily or do i have to run through hoops and most my bank account? If the thread is only coloured on the outside, washing will fade it, because you can bet it doesn’t sit in the ink long enough. If i use polyester thread it’s NOT going to be colourfast. Obviously not designed by someone who uses a sewing machine very often or very creatively.

  • Od says:

    Oo la la! I love it!

  • Lisa Marhevka says:

    Where can I buy the sewing machine ?

  • Jennifer says:

    I was wondering. If you we’re sewing aiming with stripes for example will it change between colors while sewing?

  • marina says:

    where can I buy this sewing machine ? and how much is this ?
