Important: If you’re here, you’ve likely already completed Levels 1 & 2 of the Digitizer’s Dream Course & seen first hand why our superior education has helped over 10,000 students learn how to digitize. If you haven’t, I highly recommend that you begin there as they are prerequisites for Level 3. The theory covered in those levels is crucial.

This level will continue where Level 2 left off & focuses on the attributes of the 3rd and final primary stitch type in machine embroidery: the fill stitch.
Whether you want to be able to truthfully tell your family & friends “I made it from scratch”, make some extra money with embroidery, or simply better your embroidery self, the ‘Digitizer’s Dream Course’ is perfect for you! The name of our site says it all: ‘Digitizing Made Easy’.

What Exactly Does this Level Cover?

  • Learn how fill stitches react with the intended stitch direction & affect how smoothly your design stitches out. The principles of underlay values change based on material types and if a fill is standing alone or being outlined. Stitch direction plays a part in the objects staying true to its intended shape. Properly understanding how the density and stitch length properties affect the finish results will surprise you. 
  • You’ll learn how to digitize shapes and then properly outline them with a running stitch. This may sound like a simple task, but the theory covered while digitizing these more intricate designs will ensure that you understand how to create a design that has perfect running stitch outlines without needing to run multiple samples.
  • You’ll learn how to add satin stitch outlines to fills. This will give you cleaner & more professional looking designs.
  • You’ll learn solid theory that will ensure you’ll never experience a “gapping” or “over-stitch” between two stitch types. You’ll learn that the fill stitch directly plays a huge part in how you adjust push and pull compensation. 
  • You’ll be able to ensure quality embroidery even when stitches directly oppose each other. Further explanation of underlay techniques will be covered.
  • You’ll experiment with the creative aspects of fill stitches and learn more advanced elements such as variegated color blending.
  • This level will also execute the practical theory we learned during the entire three level series to create a design with perfect underlay, density, push, and pull compensation. Our goal from the very beginning is to learn how to create soft machine-friendly designs that remain true to the artwork used.

Digitizing Dream Course Level 3 Overview

This level will cover the rules and theory behind properly creating a fill stitch. Because fill stitches are mainly used to cover large areas, the principles of underlay, stitch direction, density, and especially stitch length play a big part in creating soft smooth-running designs. Level 3 of the Digitizer’s Dream Course includes:

  • 1.5 hours of interactive video which is split into 4 bite-sized video lessons taught directly in the software brand you own. These videos can be streamed from any computer or mobile device.
  • Digitize 12 Designs Yourself using artwork we supply. Moving from simple to more complex, you’ll digitize 12 designs with help from John so you can better understand & retain the theory taught.
  • 1 Certification Lesson. This is a final ‘test’ after you’ve completed Level 3. Here you’ll digitize a design completely by yourself using the theory you’ve learned & send in your finished design to be evaluated by John personally. You’ll receive an official ‘Fill-Stitch Certificate” for completing the certification lesson.

“Great lessons!

I am brand new to digitizing and recently purchased the interactive lessons. One of the first lessons was teaching digitizing of a floral heart – I was able to bring in the artwork, digitize the design and stitch it out on a kitchen towel! It stitched flawlessly! I am so impressed that within the first few lessons I was able to get something stitched!

“John breaks it down into small sections that are easy to follow

The lessons are very informative, I would highly recommend John’s digitizing course to anyone who wants to learn to digitize. My designs have improved considerably… finally everything has come together. John teaches you the way he was taught many years ago before the age of computers & brings it into the computer age. So why wouldn’t you want to learn from the Master?
