An embroidering machine is provided with a display section which is retractable within a machine housing and can be pulled to an operational position when in use for select/input operation. Several kinds of select/input operation can be made with a single display means, by suitably changing and selecting the display mode. Select/input operation is made by plotting an appropriate portion seen in the display, reducing to a great extent erroneous operation with a visual support.
