Subject: Part of it probably fast digitizing & minimal client input, possibly no mockup. Design complexity (not just the amount of embroidery, but the number of repeated sections and over/unders, stitch width (Doire uses narrowing satin stitching for a reason!) and construction methods as make a difference. I haven't made a dress that took less than 35 hours in YEARS, and its rare for them to take less than 60 hours (start to finish, not just sewing).

I'm sure everyone has different aspects that slow them down

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

Its definitely my drawing to emb machine stage that's slowing me down. I'm doing the same as the first reply (glad to know I'm not the only one!) and I use Bernina Software. Any recommendations on drawing software that loads nicely into the embroidery software? Might speed things up a little once mastered I guess.... (NT)ug.Saturday, March 22, 09:27:04am
