“I’ve sat on the side line for years, glad I finally did it.

I am a complete beginner to digitizing… I am working through things at my own pace and the best thing is I am not feeling pressured or feeling like I am holding any one else up. A huge THANK YOU to John Deer and the Deer family. You really have a way of teaching second to none.

Have You Ever…

…had an embroidery project in mind, but you just can’t seem to find the right embroidery design for it?

…wanted to stitch out a friend’s, loved one’s, or child’s drawing, but you don’t know where to start?

…wasted money and paid someone else to digitize a customer’s logo for you-only for it to turn out less than ideal?

If you said yes to any of these questions, it’s time to take your machine embroidery to the next level and learn how to create your own designs.

We Know It Can Be Scary To Try Something New, and Maybe…

  • You’ve tried before and gave up because it was too overwhelming
  • You don’t know where to start and free online videos just leave you more confused
  • You are scared it will be too difficult and you won’t be able to keep up
  • Or, you don’t know anything about digitizing and feel lost

But we’ve taught thousands of beginners just like you all across the world how to digitize their own designs – and we can teach you too!

Thankfully, digitizing doesn’t have to be hard!
With the right teacher, anyone can do it!

Here’s What You’ll Learn…

During the first 1.5 hour webinar, you’ll learn how to digitize using the 3 primary stitch types of machine embroidery. These are the running, the satin, and the fill stitches. Every stitch type in existence is a simple variation of 1 of these 3 stitch types… So, once you’ve learned the rules of working with them, the sky’s the limit with your machine embroidery!

“Who better to learn from than John Deer with all the beautiful designs that he has done over the years. John is a fantastic teacher as he tells you all the basics and shows you how to achieve success in your design.

John Deer Embroidery Portrait

John Deer has been the most awarded embroidery digitizer in the world for over 20 years now. As a 4th generation embroiderer, John has an extremely unique history in the embroidery digitizing industry: he is the last living Schiffli Masters still teaching in North America. 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 houses, 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.

“You will find making the small investment of time and money will payoff a thousand fold for your business or hobby.

It doesn’t take long to realize how passionate John is about sharing his expertise of 35 years in the embroidery industry. He knows it inside and out and is VERY GOOD at teaching every aspect of what he knows… I understand more about the theory behind great embroidery. I can now create and output better designs.

Your Workshop Questions Answered:

Great question!

  • Embroiderers of all levels
  • Embroiderers with a desire to learn and be more creative
  • Embroiderers who know “the quality should be better”
  • Those thinking of learning how to digitize and create designs
  • Those wanting to know how to edit designs
  • Digitizers of all levels wanting more
  • Those who are on the fence about if digitizing is right for them

All that you need is an internet connection, a PC computer (or a mac with a windows operating system) and the will to learn. We’ll supply the rest, including a printable PDF and a free 30-day demo version of Hatch Embroidery Software. We ask that all attendees use Hatch so that everyone will be on the same page when watching the lessons and asking questions in the live webinars. *Please note, if you have already claimed your free 30-day demo version of Hatch, you will be eligible for a free 2 week demo version of Hatch.

Please keep in mind that THE THEORY TAUGHT IN THIS COURSE CAN BE APPLIED TO ANY EMBROIDERY SOFTWARE PROGRAM. This includes whatever brand of software you may already own. In John’s words, “The primary objective of this experience is to learn the ‘old-school’ theory for creating beautiful designs. I’ve seen software brands come and go and I’ve also witnessed incredible advances over the years. But the one thing that hasn’t changed is the mechanical theory that goes into creating beautiful smooth-running embroidery designs.”

Yes. We request that you use the Hatch demo software provided so you can follow along with the training videos. It is also important so that we can help you if you experience any software related issues such as finding tools, technical issues, etc. If you do own the Hatch digitizing software, you can use that instead of the demo software provided.

Although Hatch is not a native Mac program, as with other PC programs you can use Hatch with a Mac provided you use Bootcamp (built into Mac) or purchase a program to run Windows in Mac called Parallels. You will need to purchase a copy of Windows as well as a copy of Parallels. You will need to visit Apple’s website or the Parallels website to get any further information and support for running Windows on a Mac.

This class is primarily geared towards beginner and intermediate digitizers as we will be teaching you to crawl, then walk, then run. However, John will be sprinkling in digitizing tips for digitizers of all levels. From being on the road teaching digitizing for over 21 years now, John notes that “A lot of digitizer’s I’ve met who consider themselves advanced are often missing quite a bit of the fundamental basics”. For this reason, if you consider yourself advanced and have never taken any of John’s digitizing education in the past, this workshop will most likely still be beneficial for you.

This workshop was specially created with beginner to intermediate digitizers who haven’t yet tried our fan-favorite digitizing education in mind.

Unlike the Digitizer’s Dream Course or Virtual Digitizer’s Dream Workshop, you can complete this workshop in only a day! It will teach you the fundamental digitizing theory and knowledge needed to create custom embroidery designs. Yet, it does not go into as much detail as our other digitizing education because it is only one day long.

It may still be an excellent refresher of the basics for those of you who have taken our other digitizing education, and we have added some new blending techniques within the lesson. However, it is a basics course for beginners or anyone digitizer who hasn’t taken our other digitizing lessons and learned the essential theory & techniques John Deer is so well known for.

We understand that life can sometimes get in the way of fun. You can request a refund until September 12th, 2021, which is one week before the webinar airs live. If you do miss the live stream, a video replay will be available for one week after the webinar airs live as well.

No worries, you can replay the webinar for one full week after it goes live.

Not enough time? During checkout you will have the option to purchase unlimited replays for only $16.95 more.

Only $29.95! That’s all. We know that digitizing can be intimidating, but we think that everyone should be able to try their hand at this fun and rewarding skill.
