Unlock the mysteries of digitizing!

This course is designed to help unlock the mysteries of digitizing.  It starts with developing a strong foundation and understanding of the entire embroidery process.  Digitizing is only one piece of the embroidery puzzle.  It is important to understand all the components of embroidery in order to experience success.  Because of this, you will not only learn how to digitize embroidery designs, you will also learn how to optimize your design for the fabric/material it is going on and how to properly stabilize the fabric in order to achieve true embroidery mastery.

The principles, theories, and techniques presented in this course are designed to help every digitizer regardless of their current digitizing level.  Whether you are brand new to digitizing or have been doing it for years, you will benefit and learn from this course!

So, how exactly

Do You

Learn how to digitize?

Learning to digitize isn’t difficult when you get the information you need.  It is a process that requires learning the foundations of embroidery, the theory of digitizing, stitching out lessons that teach and show you what works and why, and getting a system for tackling the designs so you know exactly what to do before you digitize your first stitch.

Putting everything you learn together along with a blueprint to follow as you digitize will help you FINALLY make sense of digitizing and give you the skills and confidence to tackle any digitizing project.  The system for learning to digitize in this course have proven time and time again to help anyone produce dramatically better results than any other system out there.

Why Digitizing Masterclass Course IS THE ANSWER to learning how to digitize?

You Learn the Foundations of Digitizing

Because it is crucial to understand how and why things go wrong when digitizing, we will focus on teaching you digitizing theory so you can gain the knowledge needed to experience success and fully understand what you need to do at all times while digitizing.  This foundation will help you eliminate potential mistakes before they can ever happen.

You Learn About Each Component of Embroidery

The embroidery design you digitize is just ONE of the components that make up a embroidered piece.  You must also understand how fabrics work – and adjust stitch settings for the fabric – and how to properly stabilize the fabric for the design.  For this reason, you will learn how to digitize for specific fabrics and how to determine the proper stabilizer – and amount of it – based on the fabric characteristics and design size (actual size and stitch count).  You MUST take into account each component and adjust for each in order to get the best results possible.

You Learn How to Control Each Stitch Type

Learning how to properly use each stitch type is critical to digitizing success.  For this reason, you will learn everything you need to know about each stitch type one at a time.  You will learn the theory behind each, do lessons and assignments designed to teach you how to use them, and then give you practice applying what you learn about each.  By the time you complete each unit you will totally understand how to work with each stitch type.

You Learn How to Prevent Gaps and Registration Issues

There is nothing more frustrating than stitching a design out and you see gaps between objects or things are not lining up properly.  These mistakes are 100% avoidable and in the course you will learn how to prevent them from happening.

You Learn How to Create a Design Blueprint to Follow

Trying to build a house without a blueprint would be disastrous.  Same can be true with digitizing.  Creating a blueprint before you create the first stitch in a design gives you a clear plan to follow and saves you time because you won’t have to tweak or edit the design as much.  You will learn how to create a blueprint for every design that you’ll follow and never wonder what you should do next in a design.

You Learn How to Identify Issues and Correct Them

Because you will have a strong understanding of digitizing theory and know how and when to use each stitch type, you will be able to analyze a design and spot potential issues before you ever stitch the design out.  This knowledge will help save you time and costly mistakes.

You Learn How to Create Color Blend Designs

One of the more complicated techniques to learn is how to create color blends with embroidery designs.  In the course you will learn how to create thread color blends that produce the look you are after and do so in a soft, pliable manner.  You’ll be able to create color blends without creating a bulletproof, stiff design.




And do you know what all these people have in common?

Each of them has the desire to learn, digitizing software to use, and an embroidery machine to stitch the design out … and they all want to FINALLY utilize the equipment they have and learn how to digitizing their own designs with confidence and success.

Why Have They Chosen This Course?

Because it is the ONLY course that provides EVERYTHING you need to break through all the noise out there, to give you the foundation (digitizing theory) needed, to give you the practice needed, to give you the systems and proven methods that work, to give you everything – in detail, leaving nothing out – you need to FINALLY make sense of digitizing and help you to ACTUALLY digitize the designs you want.



In fact, you can spend a couple hundred of dollars for a complex design. 

That’s crazy … and is unfortunate if you already own software that can create these same designs.

And this is why I set out to create a better answer… a better solution… a solution puts the power into the hands of regular people like you and I, and allows us to create even better, even more professional digitized designs than the professionals.


With Digitizing Masterclass Course, you can learn to create professional digitized designs … even if you’ve never digitized designs before or have tried and failed before.

Everyone can learn how.

And this course comes with the information you need to produce your own amazing designs – rivaling those put together by the pros. 



In this course you will learn how to do it all!  Here is a list of just some of the things you’ll learn how to do:

The Run, Satin, and Fill stitches are the 3 basic stitch types that make up the embroidery design.  Learning how to control each is critical to digitizing process.  You will learn the ins and outs of each stitch.

You will learn a simple trick to always know what stitch type to use for each object in the design so you don’t accidentally choose the wrong one.  This will help you avoid many frustrating and costly issues!

Creating a design blueprint to follow is one of the most important things you can do to ensure digitizing success.  In this course you will be given steps and a tool to make the design planning easy and fun.  This will save you valuable time and eliminate countless design edits.

The amount of density you apply to Satin and Fill Stitches can make or break the design.  If you use too little of density the fabric will show between the stitches.  If you use too much density the design will become stiff.  It is important to learn how much density is needed for each object to give full coverage over the fabric without adding too much density.  You will create and stitch out density charts that will help you always choose the correct amount of density for each object in your design.    

There are a number of things that can cause gaps to appear between objects in a design when stitched out.  You will learn what causes gaps to take place and how to make sure they don’t show up in the designs you create.

When objects don’t line up in a design you stitch out it can be extremely frustrating.  And without understanding how and why this happens, it is difficult to fix the problem without a lot of trial and error.  In this course you will learn how to prevent registration issues so that all the stitch objects line up with each other like they should.

No matter how good the embroidered design looks on an item, if the fabric around the design bunches up (puckers) it ruins the overall look and appeal of the embroidered piece.  Fabric pucker is a very common issue that can be eliminated with the proper education.  You will learn how to properly digitize a design and choose the correct stabilization in order to prevent the fabric from puckering around the design.

Underlay stitches are used to provide a foundation and loft for the stitches the top stitches in a design.  If you don’t use enough underlay there won’t be enough structure and support for the top stitches.  If you use too much underlay it will cause the stitches to be stiff.  The type and amount of underlay used is greatly dependent on the fabric the design will be stitched on.  You will learn what underlay and amount of underlay to use for each object in your design so that you never use too much or too little underlay.  

It is always best to eliminate as many trims in a design as you can so the machine keeps stitching as much as possible.  Pathing is the technique of using a run stitch to travel from one object to another that will later be hidden underneath other objects that will stitch out later in the design.  Utilizing pathing stitches whenever possible greatly improves the quality of the design.  In this course you’ll learn how to properly utilize pathing stitches in a design.

No matter how many embroidery fonts come with your digitizing software, you often don’t have the font you need for your project.  You can spend hours trying to locate an embroidery font you can purchase that will work.  To save you time and money, you will learn the ins and outs of digitizing lettering inside this course.  You will be amazed at how easy – and how much better – it is to create your own digitized letters.  You’ll learn the proper way to navigate through each letter as you digitize it so the stitches go around corners the correct way, start where they should, finish where they should, and more!

Stitching an embroidery design out onto a hat can cause many challenges because they are round in shape and cannot be hooped flat or securely.  For this reason, there is a lot of shifting that takes place as a design stitches onto a hat.  In this course you will learn the proper way to digitize a design for hats so that everything lines up properly and looks great. 

Creating color blends in an embroidery design can turn a flat design into a dimensional design.  Learning how to create color blends can be very difficult and many times too much density is used for each color in the blend causing a stiff design.  In this course you’ll learn how to properly structure color blends and apply the correct amount of density to each object to ensure they look great and are soft and pliable.  

One of the greatest things you’ll learn to do in this course is how to dissect a design digitized by someone else that has a technique or style you like and teach yourself how to replicate that same technique or style in a design you create.

You will learn all of the above and SO MUCH MORE!

"I was fortunate to have meet D.J. Anderson through social media after viewing some of his instructional videos he produced. D.J. stood out to me beyond the rest as his videos and instructions were so well structured, and the clarity in the way he conveyed his teaching, so smooth, not rushed, his style is unmatched. D.J. has taken my knowledge from a total novice in digitizing machine embroidery to a complete digitizer who would now be confident to hang my shingle and start charging for my work."

I appreciate DJ and the Digitizing Masterclass so much. I’ve been embroidering for about 7 years with some success and some not so successful attempts. I am now learning so much as to what might have made some items more successful. DJ is patient with a person that asks lots of questions and wants to know the ins and outs as well as the whys. His experience with the end user shows and is appreciated. The information in the class is really valuable. It lets a person know what is going on “behind” the needle. I’m positive that when I finish the class, I’ll have more knowledge about the different stitches and be apprised of what will make a more successful design as well as a finished product. I am so glad that DJ is making this class available to the hobbyists as well as those who might take it for professional reasons.
