If you've been embroidering for
awhile, it's likely happened to you. Your machine is
happily stitching along on a new design ... but when
it's all done, there are gaps between the areas of
color, or the outlines don't line up with the rest of
the design. So close ... and yet so far. Sometimes, like
above, really, REALLY far.
will show you a few ways to prevent shifting and gapping
when stitching out a design -- specifically, creating
more stability through cutaway
stabilizer on the back, appropriate
fabric for the design, and firm hooping.
