Best video links to start learning the program?

4 days 21 hours ago #2208 by swingrays
Hi all! I'm new to digitizing, but I've run many embroidery jobs at the shop. I'm well versed in Illustrator, Corel,, Photoshop, etc. My shop just acquired Wilcom to run on our Barudan heads and, although I'm not the embroidery person here at my shop, I want to learn the program. Added value to the shop, am I right?

Problem is, I can't find many videos that start from square one when it comes to Wilcom. I have a general idea of how digitizing works, and I've analyzed countless embroidery jobs over the years to know just how they get sewn, at least at our shop. (we sub out to a guy in China who does all our digitizing, which I think is crazy!) I did find one lady who has a few videos that kinda go from the start, but they're very rambling and long.

Can anyone point me to a video that shows where to start? Should I learn straight basic digitizing in a different program? Isn't it basically all the same procedures, just different programs? Art is art, right?
I doubt I'd be creating brand new designs, mostly editing our subbed out jobs and maybe digitizing an image for a client eventually. .

Hi Swingrays,

We have a lot of video tutorials in our youtube account. This will help you with editing and even making a design from scratch. The link is " "

Other materials can be found in our website. You can all access videos from the SW Home screen (Turtorials) and Help menu file.

Being old schooled myself, I would suggest old fashioned tutorial.

I highly recommend attending Classroom Training (Australia and New Zealand) (Wilcom America)

Alternatively, if you have access to e3 (or knows someone who has a copy of e3 and can borrow it), there's an EmbroideryStudio e3 Workbook (PDF), within the book, Part II Workbook Projects (page 89 onwards) would be a great starting points.

Wilcom Tutorials has online video classes in tutorial style.
Stitch Vault also had great tutorial. (BTW, what happened to John Wright's Stitch Vault website?)
