machines have limits to the number of stitches that they can
read at one time. You'll find a
list of machines and their
stitch limitations on this HELP page here.
If you have a
design that exceeds your machine's stitch count limit, then
use editing software to split the design into pieces that

In this example,
our embroidery machine is limited to 64,000 stitches, and
we're working with a scarecrow design that has 67,000

each piece will need to have fewer than 64,000 stitches.
Begin by opening
the design in Embird.
Go into Editor
mode. Select Edit, then Auto-Split.
