Just realized that I have another one I did for fun.
The back of the t-shirt had a small picture of this lemur that I used for inspiration. I used Burmilana wool thread from Madeira in the tail, and appliqued shiny vinyl around the edge.

Have any of you done a full mosaic? where you change the angle of every little square "tile" to give a different light reflection/coloring? I used to want to do one, but now I am not so sure I have the PATIENCE! lol

never done one just for fun, but i like love doing "1 color" designs, but give them character using different stitch types and direction. i just did a bunch of military designs, and one golf one that way. See, my WORK is fun!

YEAH... call me when AUTO digitizing can do what you just showed!!

Yet how many people are suckered in at trade shows.... digitizing is EASY.. hey , do you have a spare bedroom? GUESS WHAT!! you can make a FORTUNE!! all you have to do is buy this wonderful singlehead and this amazing digitizing software. who needs a lottery ticket?!


yep. 3 months later is all dusty and they are stuck trying to sell it. I know this not the truth for everyone, but I would LOVE to see a canvas that actually showed the numbers..... a survey.

How often do you use your machine? How often do you digitize? How much money have you made each month since the purchase? etc.

So are they digitizing just for fun? (the point of this thread) or are they just people who have been taken advantage of (or just not that smart) ?

just for giggles, i tried the same design as an auto-digitizing. below are the results. the auto digitizing is to the right. it would be thread-break city to try to stitch:


i'm sure a lot of people buy digitizing software thinking it'll be easy, but quickly learn that there is much more to it if you want a file that looks and stitches great.

when my mother was part of the business (she was the embroiderer and i was the digitizer up until 2005), we had bought a second digitizing system. the plan was that she was going to learn in her spare time. problem was that spare time was so few and far between that i would start to teach her and by our next 'spare time' lesson she had forgotten everything i taught her. that was about $8000 in software collecting dust.

WOW, they HAVE come a long way! that image on the right is AMAZING! maybe I should contact a software company and start hawking their wares at tradeshows.

Why wouldn't someone buy something that can produce such quality?! Long term digitizers need to finally be worried!

i almost choked on the sarcasm. hahaha with this point-and-click software, i can put out 200 designs per day. maybe i'll lower my prices to $10/design.

THAT could happen. i'd put myself out to pasture before i used a point-and-click anything. i don't even use keyboard lettering for most things. i should change my username to 'control freak'
