Is the size of your hoop keeping you from creating bigger embroidery designs? Start thinking outside the hoop as you learn how to split embroidery designs step by step with beloved instructor Penny Muncaster-Jewell. During class, Penny will demonstrate how to split designs without leaving scars or overlaps. Then, you'll discover how to create multi-hooped text, split-design borders, seamless continuous borders and more. Wondering how to create your own large designs? You'll learn to stitch any design you dream up from scratch. Along the way, you'll see how to easily add and remove alignment lines and create intentionally split designs with confidence!
Join Penny Muncaster-Jewell for an overview of split designs. Penny walks you through the steps to create your first two-part design - a basic circle - including machine setup, hooping tips, Penny's "moon landing" secret and stitching the two halves using an alignment line to center them.
Explore the principles of splitting an existing design and using an alignment line to center it, modifying the stitch type and length as you work. Penny shows you how to import and select the area of the image that you want to work with, separating one part from the rest.
Increase your knowledge of how alignment lines work as Penny shares more about their purpose and ideal placements. You'll also learn how to add basting boxes to prevent unwanted shifting when you stitch, and create individual split pieces that are unified by an alignment line.
