I want to do this, but need software. I am a missionary in Guatemala, so i have two limitations. first, it must be fully downloadable and second it must be affordable. I have searched online many times and just cant find a true digitizing software that meets both of these requirements. Do you discuss any of the software options in your class? If so, i will enroll for sure. Thanks!

In the resource and supply list, there is a list of websites to look at. Plus students share there thoughts as well.

I have a Bernina artista 200/730 with version 5 software, but there is so much I do not know how to do on it. Would I be able to follow this class? Thanks

Version 5 will work perfectly fine with this class. You have the needed basic tools built in to it :) Yay!

Hello, I have a Singer Futura CE-250 it does have two loops for embroidery but not sure if I can use this for this class. I really want to learn Thanks

If loops equals hoops and one is at least 4x4 in size, you can! Always excited to teach and I hope to see you in class! You will need a full digitizing software package for the digitizing class. The Sock Easy is on my website.

4x4 hoop is the minimum size hoop needed which in metric is 100mmx100mm or 10cmx10cm

I have floriani software and a innovis brother machine, would I be able to follow along? I've had my machine for a year, but never embroidered on time to get over my fear!

I'm not sure about following along, but, I do want to encourage you to dust off that machine and start using it. I started with a small brother 2 years ago and now have 4 machines. I sometimes have all 4 going at the same time. It gets crazy but I love it that much. Have fun that's all that we really want any way, whatever craft we are doing.

I "sew" love this encouragement to inspire others to turn on their machines. Crazy moments are creative ones!
