When I open a design in Embird software, I
see lines -- will they stitch out?
On occasion, you may see lines that appear in certain design files when
viewed in Embird embroidery software. Embird refers to these lines as
"floating stitches." These lines represent the movement of the needle between the separate color stops of a design. These lines WILL NOT
sew out when you embroider the design on your embroidery machine.
To illustrate how the "floating stitches" may appear in your Embird
software program, view the circled stitches in the image below. And for
more information on "floating stitches," please refer to the Help
section in the Embird software program.
All of our designs have been tested and reviewed to ensure top quality.
As always, we recommend doing a test stitchout before stitching onto
your final item, as results may vary depending on fabric and stabilizer
