Kinds of Stitches Considered While Digitizing Embroidery

While a number of stitching patterns and techniques are used while digitizing embroidery in order to get you the desired results, we have enlisted below some of the most common types of stitches that are used to turn your design into a beautiful, embroidered piece.

The Running Stitch or Walk Stitch – This happens to be one of the three most widely used stitch patterns in embroidery and thus is considered while digitizing embroidery. The running stitch is created by making a single stitch between two points repeatedly. It is used to create underlays, outlines as well as fine detailing.

The Satin Stitch or Column Stitch – This stitch is created by making a diagonal pattern of stitches that go from one side of an area to the other, essentially making a zigzag pattern. One could also say that a closely placed zigzag stitch is used to create the satin stitch. The second most popular stitch in embroidery, it is used for outlining as well as lettering purposes. While digitizing embroidery, the satin stitch is kept within a range of 1.5 – 8 mm, since any wider could lead to snags.

The Fill Stitch or Tatami Stitch
– This happens to be the third most widely used stitch when embroidery digitizing, since it can be customized to create different types of patterns or fills by altering the length, angle and even direction of the stitching pattern. It is created by a series of running stitches that are used to cover or fill in large areas of the design.

The Tie Off or Lock Stitch – This stitching pattern is quite essential to Express Digitizing, since it is used to keep the embroidery from unraveling once the piece is complete, especially satin stitches wider than 1.2 mm. These lock stitches consist of a series of 3-4 stitches, approximately 1mm or less in size. They are used either right before a trim, or following a thread trim at the start of sewing again.
