The Sunday Stitch 1 – Hatch-ing A Plan

June 2, 2019 — 14 Comments

What’s Next?

My new home – the move coming up in a couple of weeks – is going to be embroidered to the hilt!

As this series of blog posts grow, you will be able to find them all by checking out the Sunday Stitch archive.

I will also be sharing projects and design files with the lovely folk at Hatch – honestly never met such a nice, friendly and committed crew before.

Anyway, the point being, if you enjoy machine embroidery and would like to follow this journey, you may like to check out the Hatch blog too!

If you are interested in machine embroidery I would also encourage you to try out their free trial.

If you would like to try Hatch Embroidery Software, you can download a free demo version here.

Anyway, I really should stop waffling and let you get on with your day.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Bye for now.

J :)

    Thanks John I’ve going to have a look as I got a second hand brother innovis 750E for Christmas I love it and need to use it more.

    Do not have embroidery machine, so reading out of general interest in your creativity. When I saw the options for the first time in the post, just seeing digital as part of the package name knew you would choose it. Thank goodness you did not disappoint me John .
    Good luck with the move and creativity look forward to seeing what you share.Jan

    I’m off to have a look at this software now John, thanks. I currently own two Husqvarna Viking machines (one no longer embroiders properly so it’s just for plain sewing) and haven’t bought their software for years now as it’s sooooo expensive. I use Embird all the time and have been contemplating getting their digitising package – though I do have millions of designs on my pc already, not sure I really *need* to be making my own anymore :)

    Anyhow, when you come to decorate your own place you should check-out KreativeKiwi Designs for some fab home-decor. Great in-the-hoop placemats, bags, appliqué designs (which are made much bigger than your biggest hoop is) and the best prices (and freebies) anywhere!

    I’ve made some gorgeous, huge mats, a load of very large xmas trees, a fab door hanger for my granddaughter….all sorts :)

    Right, off to see Hatch now, thanks.



    I don’t have a embroidery machine but looking forward to your posts, because I always admire your creativity and love to read the proces. Thank you for this post and have a great Sunday.

    You are going to be very busy. I don’t have a machine that embroiders. Wish I did after reading your post. Maybe one day. Look forward to seeing how you go on. xx

    Ooooh you are such a busy bee!! House move…I have just fine that but not in a planned way (umm neither was my last two moves!!!) This time a vehicle rammed another off the road and took out the junction railing, my front door and the adjacent one and the wall between.
    The property is propped up and boarded up. Hence the move…but so close, no van or hired muscle. Ha, the odd pair of hands n car boot were firstly goggle eyed at all the books and then kept muttering ‘ but its all art stuff!’
    I pressed my brand new and unused wheelie bin into action but err…books are HEAVY : )
    Good luck with the move n reorganising your stuff once your there.
    Lots of new creative adventures

    Thank you for this informative post John; I have been looking at this software on and off and have been impressed with its functionality and the fact that you can pay by instalments. Like you I always want to create my own designs and this rich package definitely would allow this. As an added bonus, it seems as though Hatch are a thoroughly nice business to buy from. It also means I can dust off my old Husqvarna Designer I until I can afford to replace it with a Brother to go along-side my Scan N Cuts (yes that is plural 😉). I think I need to go get a 30 day trial going and take it from there. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing more of your machine embroidery / Hatch adventures 😊💜



      It’s a tricky choice when looking at these price points but there were so many reasons to leap in, as you probably saw. Defo give it a try – it’s free so nothing to lose. Hope the Husqvarna gets a new lease of life!



    Brilliant post, John, Looking forward to future blog posts xx Hazel
