SAI is a compact embroidery machine packed with Tajima's technology and know-how. We developed it for people considering getting an embroidery machine who want to:


  • Make beautiful embroidery just like the professionals
  • Embroider fast and steadily
  • Have a compact machine that can be used in a small shop
  • Have an easy-to-use machine
  • Get a hard working embroidery machine for a small investment


Tajima has long excelled in the development of techniques and devices that satisfy professional requirements. However, we have had little experience of developing compact products or products where appearance is important, so everything was new for us. After three years, and after repeated trial and error experiments, SAI has finally been completed. This machine is one that we can present to the world with confidence.

SAI is an all-in-one package enabling you to start your business right away. Just follow your intuition to operate the touch panel, and the embroidery setup is all done. All you have to do now is push the start button. And even better, when you connect it to a PC using the Writer software included, you can embroider names in an instant!

The fantastic operability of not only the machine itself, but also the software, have been developed out of Tajima's design sense that has been honed in the real-world of embroidery. So, switching up to more powerful, higher-level machines is smoothly accomplished. Your initial experience will not be wasted, nor will the development of your business be held up.



SAI is an embroidery machine that can work with 8 colors of thread. It's like using a color printer. You can make your product anything from colorful to chic by putting together the colors you want to use. In reality, when you are putting logos and names together to embroider, it's rare to need to use all 8 colors. What is important to note is the fact that when 8-color combination is available, more than 90% of your needs can be met. SAI enables you to start your business with peace of mind!

Two types of essential embroidery frames are included in the package as standard: Full-size and small. They support production of everything from towels and T-shirts to small accessories. Optional cap frames are also available.

*According to an in-house survey of about 4000 cases.



SAI's distinguishing silhouette was created by Toshiyuki Kita, the designer of the first-generation AQUOS that kicked off the history of LCD TVs. He came up with a color and design which fit effortlessly into various environments. For instance, if you run the machine in a location where it is visible from outside your shop, it gives the shop a sense of movement and inspires interest in passers-by.

What's more, we added little twists here and there, such as arranging the thread cones vertically, to achieve the surprisingly compact form. In city centers, in particular, a shop is a valuable space not an inch of which can be wasted. It is a compact machine designed with consideration for your space as well.
