This blog is my commitment to my textile art. It's focus is on the manipulation of fabric by using dyeing, printing, stitching, felting and trying to go from the usual to the unusual.
That's a nifty feature! Thank you for making the video tip! Might you tell me how I can tell the software that I want the start/stop point of a specific shape to start somewhere OTHER than the default? I'm building my own appliques, and I haven't had much success with the two applique builders in Designer 6, so I've built a work-around:1. Scan the shape2. Have my husband or housemate auto-vector the cleaned up shape, in their version of Corel Draw!, and have them save it to Corel 14.0, so Bernina Designer 6 will read it.3. Import the design into Designer.4. Put a 3pt outline on the vector image, and a different color fill.5. Convert vector to embroidery6. Delete the 3 pt outline entirely7. Change the fill to single outline (Color A).8. Duplicate the outline, and change to different color (Color B).9. Change Color B to Blanket stitch, setting it to Offset, width 0.0510. Duplicate Color A, and change to Color C11. Set Color C to Satin Stitch, width 0.07The problem with this is that all three colors start their stitch-outs in the same place. It gets very messy under the hoop, and can be given to knotting up/breaking the thread. I can't for the life of me find/figure out how to have the stitches start in different parts on the different layers. Do you have a tutorial for that, that my google-fu failed to find?
