When it’s time to embroidery digitizing something, I first obtain an embroidery file through my computer. This may happen via disc purchase or through download. However my embroidery machine now takes that file and uploads it, whether via direct USB transfer, magic box, card reader or wireless set up, so that’s what I do next.
I will then load my first thread color and make a bobbin thread, and follow this up by hooping my fabric onto my machine. I then will select the desired embroidery design on my embroidery machine, and I press “go,” though some machines use “start.”.
One of the more exciting aspects of having an embroidery machine is the choice out there for embroidery designs. The amount of those is absolutely mind numbing, for there are more than you could ever need out there already, and the amount is growing daily by substantial numbers. There are also tons and tons of software programs available specifically for your machine, and you can download any different programmed fills as well as specialty stitches that become available.
Depending on the software, you may even be able to digitize your very own designs. By getting different software you amplify the capability of your embroidery machine tenfold! Software today sold for embroidery machines will make your embroidery machine a truly amazing embroiderer. There is even software currently available that will allow you to actually create cross-stitch embroidery patterns for your machine to sew out!
