Please be sure scroll down to the bottom of this post for info about the Open House Q&A on the Edge Cutter this week.
Let’s continue our learning of the digital cutter, Artistic Edge (12 & 15) . Our fabric is cut and we want to sew the applique in place: we must first embroider a placement outline in straight stitches in order to position the fabric. Here are 4 different versions of stitching the same motif – green was selected to better see the appliqué
Version # 1 : Automatic border >Stitching >OK > Color >Red
This is the placement line
Version # 2 : Automatic border > satin stitch >OK > Color >Green
Version # 3 : Automatic border >Stitching >Properties >Surface >Appliqué >Cutting of fabric >Pre-cut > Attachment point E
Version # 4: Automatic border >Stitching >Properties >Setting >Decorative stitches # 47 >Edge Setting width: 2.0mm
Once all the options have been saved, they must be downloaded to our Edge cutter via WiFi (Edge 15 model) or via the USB cable (both Edge 12 and Edge 15).
We always want to go fast and often we make mistakes; do you recognize this one? A little piece of thread sticking out … so it’s tempting to go and cut it without stopping the machine … look what can happen when your scissors get too close to the needle!
Here is the result of our exercise today. There are so many variations of decorative stitches and types of finishing around an appliqué in Artistic Digitizer software that it is almost impossible to see the end!
Contact your local authorized dealer to get a demonstration on the Artistic Edge digital cutter, to see their samples, and maybe buy the one of the last remaining Edge 12 cutters !!!
