Putting letters together to make words

tangledupinthreadsAugust 4, 2008

Still trying to figure out things and this time it's making words. I have gotten monograms down to a science with my 4X4 pes format on PE-150. When I use font designs that I have purchased, I can just make my center letter and then do my other two letters one at a time on either side without having to change my positioning of my item to embroider. But what I cannot figure out is how to write words. I understand how to do it with the pre-programed fonts in my machine, and I have tried reading about it online, but somehow I'm missing something...either in my brain, my machine, or my purchased design!! When I load the fonts into my machine from my Ultimate box card, they can only be used one at a time in my machine. In other words, I can't program the entire word to sew out, even if it is in the 4x4 area size. Each letter has to be reset and a postion chosen and when I line them up by last ending stitch of last letter, there is overlapping. Anyone have suggestions or know what I may be doing wrong. Would love to think of embroidering poetry someday, but for now I would be happy with just a name! Thanks in advance.

What you are needing is editing software to do what you want to do. I have Edit & Stitch by Amazing Designs, which works great for me. I am sure there are many others that work well, but this is the only software that I am familiar with. You bring each letter into your design in the software and position where you want it, save the design on your computer and then you can take the whole designed name into your Ultimate Box and then on to your machine. I do believe there is a trial version of this software that you can try out for a month. It can be found at www.amazingdesigns.com. When you get to the page, click on embroidery software on the left hand side. I think Edit & Stitch 2.0 is the newest version.

If you basically want to do only personalization, then maybe Personalize & Stitch would be a better option. However, if you want to do different things with designs (the website will explain the differences) then I think maybe Edit & Stitch would be the one. Good Luck!
