In this lesson we’re going to unlock the mystery of why things change from screen to machine. Your embroidered designs can look so perfect on your computer screen… and then end up sewing out terribly on your embroidery machine. Digitizers quickly learn the rule: “What you see, isn’t what you get” when it comes to embroidery. The key is understanding push and compensation. It’ll ensure you get positive results, minimize editing and the need to run multiple samples.
We’ll also reveal how using proper underlay in conjunction with push and pull compensation will assist in visually making your designs look perfect when they stitch out.
Together we’ll complete practical exercises that’ll drive home these techniques. I consider this to be one of the most important lessons in this entire Digitizer’s Dream Course.
The run time on this video is approximately 25 minutes depending on the software. Because these are interactive lessons, you’ll be following along by pausing and playing while digitizing the exercise designs. Completing all the exercises within this and all our lessons will undoubtedly take time. Please keep in mind that there are many factors which will determine how fast you complete each level. Remember this is not a race.
Happy stitching & keep up the great work!
