Shading and Open Fills

Add depth and dimension to your embroidery with powerful shadows, shades and open fills.

  • Complex shadings and open fills add dimension, color and perspective to embroidered designs.
  • Complex shadings and open fills add dimension, color and perspective to embroidered designs. Simple menu selections let you create a range of effects using complex combinations of stitch patterns, spacing, angles and more.
  • Accordion Spacing
    Varies stitch spacing between dense and open fill, producing the graduated shading effect that’s time-consuming to achieve manually. Select from one of eight different preset effects and then adjust the densities at both ends for the exact gradient you want. Combine it with other stitch effects to open up even more creative possibilities.

Color Blending

Is Accordion spacing times two. Instead of creating the graduated effect with one color, Color Blending does it with two (for instance, green graduating to blue). Use it to create perspective, shading and other dramatic color effects. Tell EmbroideryStudio which stitch effect, spacing and colors you want to use, and it blends the two colors with a perfect stitching pattern.

Stippling

Creates textured fills using run stitching that meanders randomly within a border. Control every aspect of the run: stitch length, spacing and angle, loop spacing, and more. Size or reshape your Stippling run any way you want. EmbroideryStudio automatically adjusts the Stippling effect even when you change the type of run stitch.
