Embroidery Digitizing Stitch Out

An Embroidery Course Unlike Any Other

Ready to finally learn how to create & edit your own designs using your embroidery software? This process is called digitizing, and we’ve taught over 9,700 people how to do it (including a 93-year-old student)!

If you’ve tried to learn how to digitize in the past & gave up, you’re not alone…  The majority of our students have tried to learn how to digitize by taking in-store lessons, other online classes, or watching YouTube videos in the past. The problem is that they quickly got frustrated, saw no results, and gave up. If this sounds familiar, let me tell you right now that it’s NOT your fault! Right now, there is a key piece of embroidery education missing in the industry: Theory. Most other educators out there show you HOW to do something but don’t explain WHY & WHEN to do it. In other words, they point out buttons but don’t explain the theory behind digitizing and the rules of working with stitches.

Thankfully, that’s exactly why this course stands above the rest! Like most art forms, crafting quality embroidery designs isn’t a guessing game. Embroidery and the rules of working with thread & fabric have been around for 1000s of years. Being taught by the last Schiffli Master Digitizer still alive & teaching in North America, this course will quickly teach you the age-old theory & secrets behind creating smooth-running designs in a way that’s easy to understand.

Taught in 10 of Industry’s Leading Software Brands:

Throughout teaching 1000s of embroidery events globally, we created this course after hearing the same sad story over & over again… “I bought my embroidery software to create my own designs but quickly hit a learning curve, got frustrated, and gave up.” For this reason, we teach the Digitizer’s Dream Course in the software brands you already own:

How & Why This Course Works

The Digitizer’s Dream Course was developed & refined over 25 years of John teaching in both the home & commercial embroidery industries. Ten years after John wrote the world’s number one book on embroidery digitizing, “Digitizing Made Easy” (which has sold over 44,300 copies), the Digitizer’s Dream Course was born! This new & improved course is a hands-on approach towards learning how to digitize for quicker results.

Why? Because studies have shown that seeing & doing provides the best results when trying to learn something new. It’s one thing to watch a video, read a book, or have someone stand in front of you & tell you about the process. It’s an entirely different thing to be interactively doing it yourself. For this reason, our course will teach you something new about embroidery digitizing theory, and then have you apply it yourself in a fun exercise where you create an actual design.

This same interactive learning approach is used in schools & universities across the world. A teacher will teach you something, then have you practice or apply it yourself with ‘homework’ so that it sticks. Thankfully though, this homework is fun!

Digitizing Dream Course Level 1 Overview:

There are 3 levels of the Digitizer’s Dream Course to teach you how to use machine embroidery’s 3 primary stitch types. Each level focuses on 1 of the main 3 primary stitch types: the running stitch, the fill stitch, and the satin stitch. EVERY stitch type in existence is a simple variation of 1 of these 3 stitch types. Master these stitch types, and the creative possibilities are endless!

Level 1 is where we suggest everyone starts whether you’re completely new to digitizing or have been at it for a while. In this level, you’ll learn some of embroidery’s best-kept secrets & build a solid foundation of embroidery theory. This lesson focuses on the running stitch because it’s the most used stitch type in machine embroidery. Level 1 of the digitizing dream course includes:

  • 4 hours of Interactive Video which is split into 4 bite sized video lessons taught directly in the software brand you own. These videos never expire and 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 1. Here you’ll digitize a design by yourself using the theory you’ve learned and send in your finished design to be evaluated by John personally. You’ll receive an official ‘Running-Stitch Certificate” for completing this certification lesson.

John learned and apprenticed under Swiss Schiffli Master Digitizers (then known as “punchers”) over 30 years ago in his grandparent’s factory, before computers even entered the digitizing world.

In the 1990’s-2000s John owned & ran one of North America’s largest commercial digitizing house, where he did the digitizing for many large corporations including: Disney, Coca-Cola, GM, the NFL, & the NBA. John has personally won 30 separate digitizing awards in the commercial industry and wrote the book on digitizing called “Digitizing Made Easy” which has sold over 44,300 copies & is used in Universities across the United States to teach those studying textile.

Meryl Robinson testimonial

“Cannot recommend these lessons enough

The digitizing course from Digitizing Made Easy is the best around, without question. Start at the beginning & work your way through. It will be money well spent. I quickly grasped the software & learnt so much more, to the extent that I was able to start up my own small business.

– Meryl Robinson

Janet Bergeron testimonial

“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!

– Janet Bergeron

Eline Ghesquiere Testimonial

“Thanks to John Deer I now like digitizing more than actual embroidery

I bought the course from John & everything is explained so clearly. I learned so much. I’m starting to make my first few designs for paying customers while saving up for a bigger embroidery machine.Just start it people, you don’t know how fun it is until you give digitizing a try! You can do it!

– Eline Ghesquiere

Carol Smith Testimonial

“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?

– Carol Smith

The Missing Piece of the Puzzle

This course will teach you a solid foundation of digitizing theory because simply owning embroidery software isn’t enough… It’s kind of like owning a calculator. You need some basic math theory to be able to use it. Merely owning a calculator isn’t going to balance your checkbook if you don’t know how to add or subtract.
