Computerized machine embroidery is almost like drawing with a digital needle instead of a pencil. The fabric is your canvas, and the needle and threads your brush and paint. You can plot your fashion illustration on a computer, transfer it to a digital embroidery program, and send the information digitally to your sewing machine. As the machine begins to sew, stitched lines appear on the fabric beneath and an instant piece of art is formed.
As with any new activity, practice makes perfect. You will need to spend time familiarizing yourself with your sewing machine and computer programs. Do not be scared of the mistakes you make. You may even find that these mishaps turn out lo be "happy accidents" quite by chance.
