This site is created with a goal of offering tutorials, information, and a dialogue about using precut shapes with machine embroidery. These precut shapes come in many forms. Sometimes we purchase them already cut, but more often we cut them with our die cutters or our electronic craft cutters.
Precut shapes work best for applique when we alter some of the parameters in digitizing and when we understand better how the shapes and fabric behave during the cutting and stitching process. This has been a learning process for me and I hope we can share our experiences in this space.
