If you can dream it, you can embroider it! Cookie Gaynor shows you how to use your embroidery machine software to turn your original designs into a fully-stitched reality.
Cookie will show you how to make your machine work for you as she takes you step-by-step through the process of choosing an image, mapping out the stitch path on paper, and then using your embroidery software to translate your ideas into a digital design. Cookie uses Bernina and Brother software to demonstrate, but the tools she uses will easily translate to most embroidery machines' software, including importing images, choosing stitch types, tracing shapes with mouse clicks and selecting thread colors and densities. You'll practice creating and modifying a simple redwork ribbon, then move on to fill shapes. You'll learn about embellishing appliqué with multiple stitch types and try your hand at shaded floral art.
