Inkscape drawings as basis for digitised embroidery designs

I posted some months ago in a thread that I use Inkscape to draw designs I later digitise in an embroidery program. At the time I was working on something I could not share but I have now been doing some work for myself and I thought I would share how Inkscape works for me. I decided a while back I ...

Re: svg to/from embroidery converter

Hi Brynn, Why is it that you think it won't make good embroidery? You sort of implied, I think, that dedicated software has more and/or better features. But it wasn't clear. If converting directly from a graphic to a stitch file doesn't make good embroidery, what does the dedicated sw put in between...

Re: Problem with fonts in files from Inkscape 0.92 to Gimp 2.8.18

inkscape 0.92 use the correct font-family:'Africaans SF' while inkscape 0.91 used the less correct font-family:Africaans SF see https://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-CSS2-20080411/fonts.html#font-specification Font family names containing whitespace should be quoted. If quoting is omitted, any whitespace ...

Re: Problem with fonts in files from Inkscape 0.92 to Gimp 2.8.18

Thanks for trying to help me Brynn. I'm not very good at explaining. I'll try to do a step by step of what I did. Made a file in Inkscape 0.92 containing some text + other stuff. The font I used is available for both Inkscape and Gimp (I can type in Gimp a text string with the font; I can use the sa...

Problem with fonts in files from Inkscape 0.92 to Gimp 2.8.18

I spent most of yesterday tearing my hair out because I couldn't understand why a file created with Inkscape 0.48.5 and a similar file made with Inkscape 0.91 opened perfectly in Gimp 2.8.18 but the file I created in Inkscape 0.92 lost the font and was converted to a plain one. After lots of compari...

Re: svg to/from embroidery converter

I've been reading this post with interest. I've been doing machine embroidery for over 20 years - first digitising software was DOS based and it is great to see that somebody has finally started being interested in trying to make an open source program. I don't want to in any way discourage you but ...
