Folk Art Tree

I’m learning how to digitize embroidery files. If you aren’t sure what that means, it’s basically creating files that a digital embroidery machine can read. Once you create the file, you upload it to your machine and it tells the machine what to do. It’s sort of like telling a printer what to print, only an embroidery machine prints in stitches.

These are my first designs in redwork. They are my first designs period. It takes time to get the design just right. I have to run it through my machine multiple times. Once it’s perfect, then it’s photo time. I think I have about 24 hours into this one. LOL. I’m sure my timing will improve as I  practice. This one I named Folk Art Tree. It’s for a 5×7 embroidery hoop. The files are for embroidery machines, not for hand embroidery.


All of my designs will eventually be for sale on etsy in the Twisted Turnip Shop. My blog readers may have this one for free. Just send a me a request and I will send it to your email address. You are free to use it as you please, but you do not have permission to sell the file. Thanks and happy embroidering!

    • I have been trying to learn both Hatch and StitchArt. StitchArt is much simpler. It doesn’t auto-digitize the way Hatch can, but it’s also more user friendly. If you are interested in learning, there are a number of free trials out there. 🙂 I’m so glad I tried more than one.
