You don’t know what ITH is? Then check out the information on our blog.
Even if not every file has one, here is a word about the “border” . I prefer light borders with drawing or painting character, not complete framings. Therefore it can be that the border does not fit 100% on the picture. This is intended.

Nevertheless, it is recommended to make a test embroidery before you embroider on garments.

I work with Amann Mettler Poly-Sheen. However, it is not the cheapest. Also it is
not suitable for every machine.
In any case, it is recommended to use polyester yarn (e.g. also from Gunold), because it is boil

The colors of the files are chosen arbitrarily and can be adjusted or changed at any time.
The software assigns a number to each color, which is the same for some formats and
formats, but not for others. So it can be that in my case the no. 1 is
is black, while in the DST format it is red. We have no influence on this.

What to do if the embroidery file is not readable?
On the subject of embroidery file not readable, skip embroidery parts, files corrupt I have researched on the net and came across the following interesting info:
There are machines e.g. from Bernina, Brother, W6 (often the names Bernina, Bernette Chicago 7, Brother 750e, W6 fell among others), which can not read the files. Often it is also older machines that are not quite as compatible with newer software (if that is used for digitizing).
Therefore, there are such tips, you should try them.
The Bernina obviously does not like the file names! Please rename the file name in
Windows except for the extension .EXP, which must be there. You have to remove all spaces, underscores, dots, dashes and special characters. (E.G. Owlgross.EXP)
With the Brother 750e, the stick, which is only used for transfer to the machine, may have max. 512 MB. Also, it doesn’t like to have too many files on it. Please put on it
store max. 8 files with extension .PES, no whole folders.
Each machine its own thing
Some other Brother machines, W6 but also my Janome MC500e like in the name
special characters like ä,ü,ö,ß, no dashes, spaces, periods, comma (only
letters a-z and digits 0-9) etc.. As a result, some things are not embroidered, something is left out are not embroidered, so to say something is omitted or the data from the stick is not taken. Also here please change file names and use only 8 characters for the name (e.g. Haseei1.DST). Likewise here only max. 2 files on the stick store.
Embroidery machines are divas
Then the size problem, embroidery file does not fit in the frame and I would like it smaller, larger and, and, and.
Some files have to be rotated, you have already noticed that. For some it works on the machine, for some only on the computer with suitable software. If you didn’t get any software, it is recommended to look for free programs on the net (e.g. My Editor).
ALSO, you should always format the USB sticks on the machine, if that is not possible, then on the computer.
Change sizes on the file!
Resizing a file will never be satisfactory because it can only be done on the original files that are with the creator. If the file is enlarged in your programs or on the machine, everything pulls apart because the stitch length and distances increase in percentage, and if it is reduced, it is the opposite. The threads would probably get tangled or the motifs would become too tight.
Nevertheless, a file can be faulty from the beginning, I can’t exclude that.
In this or any other case you can always contact me. You will get a new file.
