Wow, such nice shares. Really love the efforts you guys have made. I can truly understand how much work these designs take.

Keep it Up.

EASTER

Here is an embroidery of a stained glass window showing Christ in the Garden. The thick majestic frame to me amplifies the feeling of this piece.

How about taking images of your work and putting them on Viewmaster rounds to send to prospective clients? Have been doing this for years but thought it fit the "fun" part of this thread.


Sorry in advance for those that do not know what a Viewmaster is/was.

Tis the season down here in San Antonio and the Rio Grand Valley. made this shirt years ago to wear during the parades. "Fiesta" is a 2 week party where all conceivable meats can be found on a stick. I personally like the pork chop/deep fried mashed potato ball/jalapeno on a stick combo. ha.

This is such an interesting thread! I am relatively new to the digitizing game, have purchased and used the Floriani software package extensively. But i don't even come close to what you guys are producing (sigh...). I'm still coming to grips with push/pull settings, densities, etc. Where did you guys learn professional digitizing? I have searched the internet and tried so many different ways to do thngs, but usually still come away scratchng my head. Would I like to do this as a business like Robert Young, Alison, et al? Sure. But at my advanced age (retired 77 years old), I don't see that happening. I would just like to become half as good as you folks! Thanks for letting me rant. (smile) =Ed in Columbus, OH=

Thank you for the kind words. And if I get to be 77 and still have the ability to digitize I will be pretty excited!

The first time I met Floriani he was teaching a class at what today would be an ISS show. Not sure if they were called that back then. Anywho the owner of the embroidery shop I worked in at the time took me for a "Learn how to digitize on a Digitrac class" Floriani said: "if you see your digitizer seemingly just staring at the artwork to be digitized instead of actually working and doing what you are PAYING him/her to be doing just calm down. Relax and go ask the digitizer if you can get them anything like a can of coke or a cup of coffee because MOST of the "practice" of digitizing is in the PLANNING"

Just pick what you want to embroider and think about it. No need to rush as you will be just fine. Just my opinion.
