Viking Embroidery Machine

Last weekend @redslashace and I learned how to use the viking embroidery machine. We used inkstitch plugin for Inkscape to digitize the design. https://inkstitch.org/

Used this tutorial for threading and bobbin winding https://youtu.be/wLw7UNcjQcM



Not sure how much of a class is needed but I plan on doing a step by step write up next time I use it.

Digitizing is, by far, the more difficult part!

This is so cool! A write-up would be great.

Patch turned out pretty nice. I found quite a bit out tonight: you might have to manually order your paths in Inkscape to prevent a mess of crossing stitched, you have to draw a line or contour to make satin stitches (border oval of patch) and figure out what underlay stitches you need, the fabric I found is slightly stretchy so I need to tension it more or iron onto stabilizer.
