In reply to: What am I missing...?? 's message, "How are the new dress shops getting their artwork drawn, digitized and embroidered so fast! I have software, a big machine and occasionally have a helper. But how are they pumping them out so fast?? Not talking about those with a staff of 10-20, but those with 2 or 3..... Are they sketching or drawing directly into their programs? Even with a helper, getting your artwork from your initial idea to the embroidery machine takes time. I'm clearly missing a large piece of the puzzle..stumped!" on Friday, March 21, 02:31:05pm

Occassionally, if I have a solid idea I can go from drawing in the sketchbook to finished dress in one very full day. I draw it, make a pattern on tracing paper, draw the designs on the tracing paper, make a size marker, take a picture with my phone and email it to myself, upload it in digitizing software, use size marker on photo to accurately size, digitize based off photo, cut fabric based on tracing paper pattern (I usually cut a little big to allow a bit of shrinkage during embroidery) and then theoretically I'm cleaning up and assembling while the next pieces are embroidering. I work by myself and just have a 14x20" hoop. It sounds complicated, but it works for me. I'd like to do computer drawings instead of sketchbook but I'm not there yet.
