Embroidery Basics - Using Your Editing Software

Are you a beginner at your embroidery machine?  This class will cover how to use editing software on your computer view, manage, and customize your embroidery designs. There are so many different editing software packages out there, and we will help you learn what you already have.  The class will be taught utilizing Embrilliance Essentials, but Tami will assist you in learning your software package where possible.  

This includes learning to:

  • Merge embroidery designs (take two different designs and put them together to stitch out as one)
  • Resize embroidery designs with stitch recalculation. 
  • Colorize embroidery designs.
  • Convert between thread brands on your embroidery designs.
  • Add lettering to your embroidery designs in Multi-Line, Monogram and Circle modes. You can even spiral text or make really LARGE embroidered letters.
  • Save in your embroidery machine’s format.
  • Save ‘working’ embroidery files so that you can edit and replace text later.
  • Print real-size embroidery design templates, with options to support scanning /cutting systems.
  • Overlap embroidery designs and have significant understitching removed.
  • Run an embroidery simulator to show how your designs will sew out before you put them on your machine.
  • Import popular .BX font design collection files distributed by many digitizers and stock design companies.
  • Group and Ungroup embroidery objects and imported designs
  • Change or remove individual colors in an embroidery design.
  • Fit designs to your Hoop with stitch recalculation.
  • Align and Distribute elements in your embroidery design.
  • Add basting stitches to embroidery  designs.
  • Manage your embroidery thread collection, including marking ones you own.

Requirements: If you own an embroidery editing software package, bring your laptop loaded with that software. If you don't own an embroidery editing software package, bring your laptop, come in at least an hour before the class and we can load a demo version of the software for you, and then you can take the class to decide if you want to invest in purchasing the package.
