Editor Q&A 1

"

Recorded from live class, March 22, 2016.

I love answering questions on my Yahoo and Facebook groups but sometimes the answers would be so much easier to understand if I could show you how it is done in real time.

Discussions include separating by color, separating using the Stitch List, separating with Sew Simulator, adjusting width of satin stitch columns, deleting/inserting stitches, differences between Color Sort and Smart Color Sort, and using a Workspace file.

Embird Meets E-Cutters

"

Recorded from live class, July 22, 2015.

Many of us have purchased electronic cutters like the Cameo Silhouette or Brother ScanNCut in hopes of easily cutting the fabric for purchased applique designs. Up until Embird 2015 build 10.14 this wasn't so easy. But now it can take only a few button clicks to create that SVG or FCM file needed by our cutting software. It comes in at the perfect size too - no more fussing around to get the perfect piece of applique fabric. But now and then the applique design may need a little work to make it work perfectly. In this class we'll work through the steps of creating the SVG/FCM file from a simple one fabric applique and then a three fabric applique. Design files included with class are from Fly With Embird Seminars.

This class requires at least Embird 2015 build 10.14. If you haven't upgraded yet, I think you'll find this new feature is a great reason to do it now. Not sure, but are interested in using your cutter to cut fabric? Join us and see.

You will need to know how to open and merge files in Editor. It will be helpful to have some knowledge on how to separate color stops and how to use the Sew Simulator. If not, you'll be learning to use them in this class!

Font Engine 101

Recorded from live class, March 20, 2014. Beginner level. The class lasts approximately 1.5 hours.

Embird's Font Engine plug-in allows you to add lettering to your embroidery designs. You can get decent results with the default settings, but you can get better results with a little know-how. The goal of this class is to help you get the best satin stitch lettering possible. We'll discuss some of the pitfalls of auto-digitized lettering including what to watch out for when stitching small lettering. You do not need to own Font Engine to get something out of this class. Font Engine installs with basic Embird and you can do this class in the trial version. You will be limited to using the characters ABCabc, but those will work for this class.

If you own Embird 2013 (or newer) and its Font Engine plug-in, then you have the Ready Made Alphabet text plug-in. It allows you to take all of those design fonts you buy from your favorite designers. You know, the ones that you now have to use Open and Merge to bring into Editor and then position manually. This new plug-in allows you to TYPE in your text and it positions it for you. In this video, you'll learn how to set up your alphabets to make them so much easier to use. Thank you to 8clawsandapaw.com for providing the Lilly alphabet for my use. You may purchase your copy at their website.

Entwined Monograms

You do not need Studio to create interesting, intertwined monograms. You can do it using basic Editor and ready-made alphabets from your favorite designers, Embird Alphabets, and/or Font Engine.

All you need for this class is Embird Editor. You can even use it in trial mode. You do not need to own any Embird Alphabets or Font Engine. I supply most of the letters that will be used in your class packet.

There is one exercise that requires the use of Lucille, a ready-made alphabet by www.8clawsandapaw.com. If you wish to follow along you will need to purchase the alphabet first. You can still get a lot out of the exercise by just watching if you don’t wish to purchase it. But go take a look at it. It is very reasonably priced and digitized extremely well. And don’t forget to let them know that Peggy sent you … Click here to go directly to the Lucille Monogram alphabet.

I highly recommend my Editor 101 video tutorial if you are not familiar with the basics of using Editor. It will help you become more comfortable with the program and make this video easier to follow. If you prefer written tutorials, try my Country Adventures tutorials which also cover Editor basics.
