Adventures in Embrilliance: Stitch Editing

I love free designs! The upside is that first, the price is right, but most importantly I get to try-on a particular designer's style to see if it fits my own. The downside is that usually the design has elements that I cannot use. Please understand, I am not talking about changing one or two things and claiming the design as my own; I am talking about personalizing the design (with full credit to the designer) so that I can use it again and again. Take for example, this FREE mug rug from Sweet Pea Designs:

It is so cute! And, because I love Sweet Pea I want one in my sewing room. However, if I were giving it as a gift I do not know anyone named "Sweet Pea!"

With Sweet Pea's generous permission I would like to share the wonderful features of Embrilliance Enthusiast software to change the words "Sweet Pea" to the word "coffee." Join me for this quick adventure in stitch editing! 



Until next time!

  1. I think I have Acudesign (will have to check as I've moved and switched computers) but without it or any program this can be done by skipping stitches (in the largest size) 10805-13256. If you add a name stitch it then. The flower piece is stitches 13257-17255 (again in the largest size) so that can be skipped to or left. I do this all the time so I don't have to buy another program but think I have Acudesign so I'll hunt for it as that would be easiest! Thank you for this video!

  2. So, if you're talking about Acudesign, I'm assuming your embroidery machine is a Janome. Mine is & they have 3 apps with the last, newest being very helpful in aligning designs very simply-in fact, I now have no need of my many items meant to make certain designs that often are difficult to place precisely. So yours is likely an MC15000 that makes easy adjustment of stitchout possible & this design is easy to make for a friend with name stitched. Is that what you were referencing?

    1. Yikes, just saw your reply when searching for Embrilliance vs Acudesign. Yes, I have a 15000 and Acudesign. So now I wonder if I need Embrilliance Essentials or if Acudesign does the same thing.
