applique using embird or PE design

Hi there, I am relatively new to this so plese excuse if this is a silly question.

I want to do applique with my Brother 700e embriodery machine. I have not yet bought any software but I know that PE design allows you to do applique very easily by sewing an outline stitch and then you put the fabric over the top and it oversews it etc and there is no need to create a separate badge anbd then sew/iron it on later.

Could I also do this in EMbird? I am reluctant to spend the money on PE deisgn if I can do the same thing with cheapoer software.

hope someone can help me!

As far as I know you can do it with Embird if you have the digitizing add-on. I think it's a couple hundred dollars, but it sure beats $2,000 for PE Design!


RE: applique using embird or PE design

The embroidery design is an quite unique and have to impress other for getting good feedback. Yes, there are many sites available that provide different kinds of software to help to design. But be careful while choosing sites usually they are much more spam

As embroidery artwork is very popular nowadays you can find many cheap software to do this work. Search on the internet for this and see which is according to your need and skills. You can do the work with EMbird but you must have a proper knowledge of it.
