Embroidery Designs Testing for Machine Embroidery
We have found a "new" way to see how well the stabilizers and
methods you are using are working with so that your designs look
GREAT without any off outlines, puckering, cupping or warping.
This is a TEST - Only a Test - but if You and your stabilizers
pass - You will have great looking designs. And if your methods
and stabilizers don't pass - you can just try again - Till you
get it right.
I think and recommend that we should test stitch all designs
every time that we stitch-out any new design for the first time.
With testing we get to see how the colors work out and whether we
have used the right stabilizers and methods. After the test
stitching - we can easily see if the outlines are off and if all
the parts line-up - BUT - we don't know if the fault is in the
design itself or in the stabilizing. This is where our New
"stabilizing test" is really useful. It can show us if we have
used the right stabilizers and methods. It's real easy - just
baste a "picture frame" around the design. And when you are
finished stitching - you can easily see if the basting stitch is
still straight or if the design stitching has pulled it in - in
some places and made the straight basting picture frame no longer
straight. If it is not straight - then the conclusion has to be
that either you used the wrong stabilizer for this fabric and
design or that you didn't use enough or in the right way
And conversely - If the basting frame stitch is still straight
and the outlines are off or certain parts don't line up - then
the conclusion has to be that the stabilizers and methods used
are OK - And the problem is the fault of the design. ( Of course
in any test we need to make sure that everything is working
properly and that we are using the right needle, have the right
tension settings and ect.)
Please let me know what you think about the "stabilizing test"
above and if you tried it - and what the results were - I think
is is a great idea - I wish that I could take the credit for it -
but Sandy gets all the credit for this - But I can take credit
for writing this and passing a good idea along. - I hope.
Our designer and digitizer, Sandy Carter creates all our
machine design patterns and takes the time to ensure that they
will sew out easily and still be unique, distinctive and
dimensional. Our patterns can be sewn with all home and
commercial machines. The pictures of our designs on our web pages
can't show all their beauty - that is why we have free machine
embroidery designs files to download so you can sew out the
designs to see the quality and how well they stitch out on your
own clothes or fabrics. Many of the patterns in the new
collections have free embroidery designs samples to download, so
you can stitch some of our free designs on your machine and see
the quality of our embroidered designs today. You can see all of
our designs at our web site >
