231 Hand Lettered Floss Stitch - Regular Font comes in .5", .75", 1", 1.5" , 2", 2.5" , 3", 3.5" and 4" sizes. Set size for this font is based on the height of the capital 'A' and all other characters are proportionally sized. All sizes are included in purchase price. Also included in the purchase price is a set of matching scrolls and accents to add a decorative touch to your lettering projects. All characters, scrolls and accent pieces are finished in Floss Stitch (described in FAQ#14) which stitches out on all embroidery machines. Stitching is left to right. Most lowercase letters have left/right matching points. Lower case letters c d g o q u and y start higher up but end at the left matching point creating one jump stitch; i j and t are two part and will create two jump stitches. The word "lettered" in the stitch sample show above has 5 jump stitches but even after trimming the word appears to be stitched in one line. Just use your embroidery layout software to line up the letters...or use Embilliance Software with the BX format to type in your lettering project....then adjust the spacing between the letters so they are touching and make sure to arrange the stitch order from left to right as well to minimize jump stitches. Most characters in the 4" set exceed the hoop limitations of the standard 3.96" x 3.96" PES hoop. *DO NOT RESIZE or adjust density on designs with decorative running stitches like Floss Stitch as this forces a stitch recalculation resulting in the loss of the original stitch pattern and stitch quality....if your embroidery management software recalculates stitches you'll need to contact the software provider to find out how to turn it off.
*Revised on 2-21-17 to include the .75" size and to add the scrolls and accents. If you purchased this set before the revision date just log in and re-download to get the updated files.
