file Digitizing Fringe designs

Woodward Posted 2 years 5 months ago

Is it possible to digitize fringe designs with Hatch? I've tried but wedge shapes end up with shorter stitches either centrally if I add stitch angles or at the sides if I just have one central angle. I've tried and tried to overcome this but to no avail. And of course these shorter stitches won't be held in place with the 'locking' stitches when the bobbin thread is cut. What am I doing wrong? I've attached a screen shot - the red objects are digitized in Hatch and the black object is part of a fringe design that came with my embroidery machine.

I also have problems with this and have not been able to find anyone to give an answer. I had some luck by using the reshape tool, but then the center is not as small as I would like in terms of digitizing fringe flowers. Come on Hatch, someone must have a solution for this.

Hi,
You need to make a stitch line right above the shortening stitches.



It is best you cut your bobbin threads rather than try to pull out the bobbin thread. But this will depend on the tension in your machine.
We will work up more information for you on this soon.

I have finally figured out how to deal with the short stitches when digitizing for fringe. What I did was turn off True View, then select the object and go to edit object-stitch editor. You need to zoom in until you see the needle points and double click on the needle point of the stitch that you want to lengthen. Once you do that there should be a cross which you can click on and drag the stitch down. It is somewhat time consuming because you are doing each stitch manually, but it does work. Now if you doing any reshaping it can change the stitches, so that should be done before using the stitch editor function. There may be an easier way to do this, but I do not know how.

Hello,
Yes, you can do it this way, but as you mentioned moving stitch points is not retained and takes some time. Did you see my post back to you on this? Where you can digitize a line? This is the best way and then you still can retain all the editing going forward.

Thank you so much. That makes perfect sense and I’ll give it a go.
