From Beginning to End- Digitizing Embroidery

Experience the process of digitizing designs in the software and then embroidering your creations. Learn what to look for before you send a design to the machine and then after stitching the designs, analyze how to make improvements in the designs. Make your corrections; then go through the stitching process again to finalize the design. We will create designs from both line drawings and artwork. Prerequisite: You should know the basics of digitizing before taking this hands-on class.
