In this article I’m focusing primarily on Designer’s Gallery Creator 3, which is the software that we use with our embroidery machine, but I expect other digitizing programs will at least behave similarly. I went back and was looking at some of the earliest projects I made with our software, and as I was somewhat green, […]
