I am in "full swing" learning about embroidering on my new Singer XL6000. I just love it. Can anyone help me on this question. I would like to not embroidery parts of some designs....is that possible? If so, how do you skip them? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a Bernina, not a Brother.

I can edit out the bit I don't like in the software, or if there's a thread change, I can just skip it on the machine.

I don't have the singer software, (because my embroidery machine is a Janome) but in Embird an easy way to delete part of the design is if it is another color, you just delete that color.

I have Embird and just bought the new Embird 2006 upgrade. I confess that I don't use it very often but then, I don't embroider very often. I do think you can edit designs in Embird's Editor mode to actually delete parts of designs that you want to remove and not by just deleting color sequences. I think you can also combine parts from different designs to create an entirely new design in the Editor mode. I know that Embird is an awesome software program and I am embarrassed to admit that I do not come close to using it to its full potential. BTW, I can also edit designs in my Baby Lock New Esante, including removing parts of designs and combining two or more different designs. So, it can be done.

I'm sure you are absolutely correct. I'm not incredibly Embird savy yet- lol! My dh bought the program for me a few months ago, and I am still trying to figure a large portion of things out. I figured that this might be a "universal" way of deleting a portion of a design with embroidery software.
I really need to get a good Embird tutorial!
There is so much I know it can do, that I am not taking advantage of!
BTW, Loiry, do you see much of a difference in 2006 vs 2004?

I haven't thoroughly explored the 2006 version but, I did read all of the new things it can do on the Secrets of Embroidery website. It seems to have a lot of new features and several improvements of things that are in the 2004 version. Have you gon to the Secrets website and checked out Embird there?

Paula,
To edit out more than just a thread color change, you'll need editing software. There are many brands out there, but Embird is hands-down the best bang for the buck. Plus it's relatively easy to use.

In Embird, you can use a pen-like cursor tool to draw around stitches you want to "split" from a larger design. You can then choose to edit that split further or delete it altogether.

If your machine uses a proprietary memory card, you'll also need a "box" to transfer designs from the card to your computer and back again.

After I read it myself?? I don't use Embird enough to really know it. I just know what I need, get in and do it, and close it up quickly.

Hi,
Embroidery is probably the most fun you can add to your sewing. The best way to edit is with a software program. I use Edit'N Stitch by Amazing Designs and I can delete color stops, delete partial or whole color and much more. It is easy and quite inexpensive as sewing software goes.
