What Is Machine Embroidery Digitizing?

By Deb Schneider

Machine embroidery digitizing is an art form. Using digitizing software, a skilled embroidery digitizer transforms an image or text to stitches, creating the image in a file format an embroidery machine can read.

That's a fine definition but the reality is somewhat more involved.

Just as typing words into a word processor does not make one an author, being able to open digitizing software on a computer does not make the operator an embroidery digitizer. Embroidery digitizing is not a click-the-button-and-sit-back process.

Digitizing an image for embroidery requires an artist's ability to see the big picture and the smallest of details. Experienced embroidery digitizers mentally dissect each image, breaking it out into sections and layers, noting how each section relates to the others, how the colors blend and merge and how the shadows play with the light to create the mood or atmosphere the image evokes.

Then the digitizer utilizes the software's tools to separate those sections for redrawing or resizing, stitching in underlay and overlay threads, assigning stitching sequences, using thread to apply shading, and colorizing. The design is reassembled to create that original impression, as much as is possible, in thread and it is ready for its first sew out.

Sometimes digitizing an image to thread is often not possible nor feasible. Thread is three dimensional; it is not oil paint or digital pixels. An embroidery digitizer must have an artist's creativity and problem-solving skills. A digitizer's canvas is the computer monitor, the keyboard and mouse are the brushes and the embroidery digitizer's pallet is the embroidery software.

But the embroider's canvas is the fabric, her brushes are the machine, needles and thread and her pallet is the program produced by the digitizer. The machine is only a robot awaiting instructions and then doing precisely what it is told to do in the order it is told to do it. Ruling out mechanical problems or operator error, if a pattern does not sew out correctly it is not the machine or embroider's fault.

So the digitizer's work is not confined to a computer screen. Knowledge of fabric types and the push-pull factor of each is also required. The embroidery digitizer also needs to know about needles, thread, and stabilizers and, perhaps most importantly, must creatively expand the 'boundaries' of machine embroidery.

A professional embroidery digitizer's attitude is: "Nothing is impossible!"

And that is what makes machine embroidery digitizing so darn much fun!

What is Embroidery Digitizing?

By Anna Poelo

When you're into embroidery and needlecraft you may have come across embroidery digitizing. Embroidery digitizing it the process of converting artwork into a stitch file that can be read by an embroidery machine and then sewn into fabric.

How do we go about embroidery digitizing? Is it as easy as it digitally sounds? Here's how it generally goes.

The digitizer must first analyze the artwork to see if it should be edited for embroidery. We have to understand that not all logos and designs will work for embroidery. There are those that need to be simplified and correctly sized up. There may also be elements in the artwork that will be eliminated, and there will be some that will be altered, like enlarging small text and eliminating outlining.

After finishing up on the modifications on the artwork in the program or software, the digitizer will then decide on how the "pathing" of the stitches will run. Pathing, or mapping, refers to the sequence of stitches in the design, from start to finish. This is an important process because if the design is not embroidered in the correct sequence, there may be unwanted gaps and uneven text. This process is also a factor on how long the design will be running on the machine during embroidery process. A smoother design made in a shorter time costs less.

The digitizer then assigns stitch types to sections of the design. These will be based on what stitches will best bring out the beauty of the artwork. The underlay stitches will be added first. The underlay stitches should be done correctly because it helps the other remaining stitches have a smooth surface to embroider on. It also adds density to the design. When not done correctly, the stitches will sink into the fabric or allow the shirt fabric to show through the design.

There are only three basic stitch types. These are run, satin, and fill stitches. There are many variations of these stitch types, however. The digitizer will have to decide what variation of the stitch to use, along with the direction of the stitch, where it should start and where it should stop. The digitizer also has to consider the type of fabric that the design will be embroidered on and make more adjustments. There are types or fabrics that may only ruin the design. A logo made for denim, for instance, does not look good when embroidered on fabrics where the stitches tend to sink into the fabric.

There is also what we call the "push and pull" in embroidery digitizing. While being embroidered, a design may move and may cause some of the stitches to shift. This happens when using bulky and rough fabrics, long stitches, large areas of thread and a tight bobbin thread. A digitizer also has to consider the 'push and pull' effects and make the necessary adjustments.

Embroidery digitizing is indeed faster and easier today with the large number of digitizing software available on the market. Nevertheless, designs with fine detail, small text, and lots of colors obviously needs more set-up time for the digitizer. Time and experience is essential to digitizing, since there are a lot of stitches, fabrics, and factors to consider in the art of embroidery digitizing.
