I have embird as a software and digitize.
However, I have not come across a course on Free standing lace which is different to 'normal' designs.
Has anyone an idea where to find it? Or how to handle it?
Tks

Every well made and good sewing out existing embroidery design is actually a little lesson, all in it's self. So if you already have a bunch of those, then you probably got your lessons even there.

Of course, you would have to bring them up in what ever software you have, and then watch how they were made and sew out, and trace through them stitch by stitch to see that.

That is really different than learning out to use some particular software program though, or memorize what all the icons in it mean, and all that very different kind of stuff.

You could even use my very most favorite "lace making" book of all time, which is that old Singer one, called "Singer Instructions for Art Embroidery", there have been lots of reprints since then, but one of the older versions is even free on the Internet, on the Internet Archive/Wayback Machine just since The Library of Congress even scanned it and posted it up there as a readable, printable and viewable book. I would suggest that one. Back then, the lessons in that book, were probably made on a treadle, but it does not matter and not really any different than a digitizing program for hoop embroidery at all, and a computer file instead, (in actually getting sewn out at all) just since the sewing machines are really the same anyways, one top thread, one bottom thread, and they lock stitch in the middle.

So if you want to use that book, you could just go through it even, lesson by lesson in there, and the only difference is you would be creating a computer file that is moves a pantogram arm, instead of using your hands to move a hoop, but the end result and "how it works" is really just the same either way. Kind of amazing, but sewing stuff really never changes much, so even 1911 is still pretty much up to date on just that even.

It's here:

Thanks for your reply. You are right with your suggestion and your aproach.
I will look into the literature....
I just thought that would be my very last approach to the matter in case I cannot find anything at all

I found this at Secrets of Embroidery. I have never done this technique, but hope this link will help you.

Most digitizing programs (no matter autodigitizing or not) do have a satin stitch column kind of function as a method of digitiziing someplace in there. You do then get to decide on your stitch length for the column, stitch density for that, and also probably most important, your lines of running stitch underlay, in how many of them in a row under it, and where placed and all that stuff. That "stuff" is what is going to hold the satin stitch column together in the end, or not, when fabric is still even there later or not. So, people often would check all that out, figure out how to use that any way they wished, and manipulate that in any program, to make some satin stitched columns that did not fall apart once the fabric was gone. So I do think you have to do that in anything, and just because things might intersect with other things, you probably can't always count on just the automatic, more user picked underlay either, you probably would often need to have some manual punched underlay going on in places too.

Also I know that embird (even though I choose not to use it as just not "my cup of tea") even lets you create you own fills, (so check it out and how that works if you have not noticed that yet) and you could create some running stitch motifs and fills, and then just by how you do that,to apply to some object, laid out, if you want to layer some of them over each other, of a bit off set to each other, and play that way, I'm sure some of those would then "hold together" later also. Just since doing that in any digitizing program, that would happen.

Thanks for your answers.
So far Embird works fine for me and I will look into the course and will see if I can use it.
