After the Wacky Pac Retreat last week-end, I came home more eager to learn more about Embroidery Software. I downloaded free trial versions of Buzztools Buzz2stitchs, BuzzEdit, BuzzSize, and Personalize It. Also Amazing Designs Software. Amazing Design is not as user friendly as I need. I liked the Buzztools software, but each part of the software is sold seperately and gets rather expensive to buy it all.
I own a Janome 10001 embroidery machine. It came with Customizer. After experimenting with other versions of software, I decided to go back to Customizer and see, once again, if I could make something happen.
This daisy is autodigitized--------
This is the same design, but I changed the stitches experimenting with the cross stitch fill and also the satin stem stitch. Not bad, but I lost the outline somewhere along the line. I can edit designs with Customizer--rotate, flip, and Change the colors. The only thing I really need is to be able to change the size--more thanthe 20% alowed by Customizer.
After not being thrilled with the designs in I created I Customizer, I stitched out a design provided by BuzzTools site that is suppose to be done in Buzz2Stitches. It really is a greatly stitched design.
If anyone has any experience with the programs I mentioned in this post, please comment. I could buy Janome Digitizer Pro, but it is considerably more money.
