Hoop Savvy Sneak Peek #4 – twas the day before class launch…Posted: May 10, 2015
I believe that software goes hand in hand with machine embroidery. Even if I don’t want to change the design at all, I personally need to be able to print actual size templates so that I can mark my fabric and hoop accurately; this is best done in software. The worst feeling is spending 40 minutes stitching a design on a shirt only to try it on and realize you have a lovely embellished armpit (or worse!) Using a printed template removes any guesswork as to where the design is going to end up when it is stitched.
So yes, in Hoop Savvy, we will work a bit in software to show you how to do some fun “hoop related stuff” such as watching the design stitch out on screen to help you plan the stitching at the machine. And what about creating and visualizing repeating border designs without having to print out multiple copies on paper – wouldn’t it be great to preview the border in software when you digitize it?
Of course, we will also talk about creating layouts for multi-position hoops with alignment lines, and how to add a basting box to help with professional stitched results when floating. Oh yes, we will talk about floating in case you were wondering what that was all about! And if you have misplaced or never got the plastic grid that came with your hoop – I’ll show you how to create a new one using software so that you can mark your fabrics for accurate placement!
Here come the butterflies again….
Stay tuned – I will have links with 50% off pricing to share with you as soon as the class launches! I know you like a sale as much as I do 😀
