When our friend Lisa saw the super-cute monthly artwork collection from Sanqunetti Designs, not only did she find herself dreaming of digitizing a set of lovely embroidery designs she could give to our Embrilliance family, she also envisioned the awesome opportunities to educate that would come with explaining every piece! For the next 12 months you’ll find them being published here. Stay subscribed not only to get the free designs as they’re released, but also to learn something new about your Embrilliance software! Read on for more information and to get your free download!
We’re starting the collection off with the following “November” design composed of this fun script text above swirls and mini designs related to seasonal plants and the celebration of Thanksgiving here in the US. You may notice that the Candle thread is assigned brand. Both rayon and polyester charts for Candle were added to the platform in a recent update. If you are not sure how to update your software, be sure to check out this tech support resource post.
It’s fun and informative to preview a design in your software before you stitch it. The sew Simulator allows you to watch your design ‘stitch out’ virtually. Just remember these controls use the PAUSE button to halt the replay. Pressing the ‘Stop Sign’ button inserts a color stop in a stitch file at the current stitch in the replay.
You’ll have the native BE file with access to the objects should you want to change the color of a single element. This means you won’t want to use the stop sign to add a color stop. Adding a stitch-file color stop to native objects will convert them to stitches permanently, ending your ability to edit them as native objects.
Users of StitchArtist level 2 and higher will be able to see the stitch settings for the special gradient fill used in the acorn and pear. Play with the settings to see all the different effects you can get! Adding a curved fill effect to this pear gives the illusion that it is round and has dimension.
The design is provided in our native .BE format, enabling you to save a stitch file for any embroidery machine. If you aren’t already an Embrilliance owner, we provide a free method to use our software called Express Mode that will not only allow you to use any of the wonderful free designs found in our project blog, but also enables you to install and create basic text treatments with fonts distributed in our popular .BX format produced by many embroidery design creators.
