Many beginning embroiderers come across a common problem when digitizing a single run element in a design. On screen, everything looks perfect and when viewed through the slow re-draw feature this problem is often overlooked – until you stitch the design. This occurrence is the unintended two-ply run stitch.
I’m not a fan of a two-ply run stitch. I prefer a single run or if additional emphasis is needed, I go to a bean stitch. So when I digitize the single run and it stitches as a two-ply, I’m not too happy. But it’s a simple fix and one that can be detected before you stitch by using the zoom tool and paying close attention during the slow re-draw.
Go to slow redraw and check your work. Easy fix, wouldn’t you agree?
