From geometric to floral, and from thick to back stitches, it looks amazing to create the machine embroidery designs on the clothes and other accessories. A well-embroidered design is made by the solid structure of stitches. Companies are using apparatussewing for creative artwork on clothing products and individual pieces. It is done on clothing to apparel decorative garments but now by using the new technology you can do it on fabric rolls. In instrumentsewing, there is only one stitch. But it is a truth that anneedleworkappliance can make the same stitch in different ways. A single stitch is the building block of everything in needlework. So, in this article, you will know the basic stitches of this type ofstitching.
Basic Types of Stitches:
Below are the following different types of stitch using in this regard;
Fill Stitch: It is a basic stitch used in machine embroidery designs and also called ceding stitch and it is created by the combination of straight stitches. This stitch can completely cover the surface, though its density may be varied. Penetrations of this stitch are alternated and it looks like the woven materials. This stitch is useful for covering the large areas of design. It gives a less sheen and flat look than satin but fills the large area and avoids rippled texture. You can alter the fill stitch design by changing the alignment and spacing of stitch length and penetrations for creating various textures. Innovations in the software are allowed to create curved lines and enhanced the sense of contour.
Bean Stitch:It is mostly used to outline the design and provides a bold appearance. A bean stitch is more pronounced as compared to running stitch. It will help you to promote your company and get unlimited visibility of the brand. A digitizer should assign the types of stitches to every design section. For stitching digitizing there are some basic steps that you need to follow like understand the artwork, fabric type, design size, and any specific requirement, prepare to digitize artwork, decide the running of design from start to end, assign types of sewing stitches.
Underlay Stitch:This stitch is a foundation of design because it is created before the original design. Underlay stitch has the light density and placed in the opposite direction of final stitches. It will provide the constancy to the fabric. First of all, you need to include the underlay stitches but you may not see these stitches. After the modification of artwork, you can create a stitch file.
Running Stitch:In this type, this stitch is a foundation of fill and underlay stitch. It is used for underlay, outlining, and fine detail. It is used in the areas of 1mm. You can use it on jackets, outerwear, uniforms, caps, hats, bags, or apparel, etc.But you need to practice more to improve this skill like many others. The demand for embroidery digitizing has been increased from a few years. If you will practice more, you can produce the best results with less time and production costs. Before starting any new design, try some runs. Then compare different options and choose that suits best with equipment and fabric.
Straight Stitch:A straight stitch is a basic stitch in this type that single stitches are repeated in a line. By varying the length of the stitch you can achieve different effects. A long stitch is created by the combination of many short stitches and it looks smooth and gives shiner look. This stitch is generally formed by the combination of the same length’s stitches. But digitizing software may vary the length of stitch automatically for tracking the tight curves. A straight stitch is using inoutlining, manual shading, detail work, and drawing of a single color
Satin Stitch:It is also known as column stitch and you have already seen it in the embroidered text. Satin stitch is useful for embroidered the narrow areas and it can be altered between straight and angled stitches. This stitch gives a shiny look due to its longs and unbroken threads. It is often used intext strokes, thin borders, narrow elements, and everything with less than a centimeter.Mostly digitizers use this satin stitch for enhancing their artwork pieces’ dimensions due to their propensity, raised crown, and high sheen for showing shadow and light. If you create an embroidered design in a single color all its definition and depth will be due to satin’s nature. This stitch has some limitations because we cannot change its width over 12mm and a long stitch tends to be a snag, loopy, and loose on anything. Computerized machines can easily manage multiple stitches. A machine embroidery design with high stitch density has an enhanced effect of the design.
Although, it is a very tricky task for this purpose you should use long stitches. All the designs must have strong satin stitches and borders.
