I do spend quite a bit of time working on videos, blogs and answering tons and tons of questions. I am absolutely not complaining, I do all of these things because I want to, not because I have to or that its my job. I already have a full time + job making patches. Embroidery has always been a passion of mine, and I am always happy to share my experiences as much as possible.
I really do appreciate all of the likes and subscribers on Youtube – that keeps me going! Not to mention all of the likes, shares and thank you notes on Facebook – that also keeps me going too and I love it all!! I would like to have 10 zillion subscribers and 10 zillion likes, LOL. OK, well 10 zillion is a big number – but I plan on doing something grand if we ever reach 10,000 likes or subscribers. I like to think BIG.
Every once in a while someone will share their story. As you all know by now, here at OML Embroidery we are all about embroidery and the different software that we use. I do like them all, but the newest one Hatch has my attention for a few reasons – its a very powerful program, its easy to use and its not missing any big things in it – everything you need is right there – to name a few reasons. Most of all, I think Hatch will open the doors for embroiderers – all embroiderers from beginner to advanced – because of its brilliant user interface and its powerful program. And I like new doors being opened – opened doors lead to opportunities!
So here is the inspiration for the weekend. This person has been reading my blog and following along with all of the writing, videos and information on Hatch. Although they have 2 other embroidery programs that they have struggled with for years, Hatch was the program that “opened the embroidery door” for them:
“Thanks for your insightful comments. I’ve been struggling with Embird for years and with Brother PES software for many years prior to that. I’ve been a home, hobby embroiderer since the first home machines came out but just couldn’t make the digitizing software do what I wanted. That changed when you posted your new Wilcom Hatch tutorials. I downloaded the 30 day trial as you suggested and have successfully created, converted, and sewn out several simple, but original designs. I’m thrilled and can’t thank you enough! I wouldn’t have taken this step without your tutorials and encouragement. After playing with Hatch for several days I knew I’d found what I’ve been searching for all these years and bought the digitizer package last night. Hatch makes sense to me in ways Embird and PES never have. And the tools and functions are so darn much fun I can’t wait to get back in and play some more! I’m in love and so grateful that you introduced this to your readers. Please keep the hatch videos coming. Wilcom has some nice tutorials but I like yours much better. Your explanations are clear and concise and your enthusiasm is contagious! Thanks again. OML and Hatch ROCK!”
What a wonderful success story!
Here is what you can take from this story: Never give up. Do not be afraid to try something new, take a different approach or learn something new – you never know what is going to happen!
I have said this in a few videos and blogs – if you are not happy with your current software, are struggling or are not able to get the results you want – then why are you using it? TRY SOMETHING NEW. You never know what will happen! You have nothing to lose – Hatch is free for 30 days – and you have lots to gain: confidence, happiness, a sense of accomplishment and a nice path on your way to better digitizing to name a few!
Don’t forget to join our Facebook group: Wilcom Hatch Tips and Tricks so you can share your accomplishments and your progress with Hatch. We love to see your work!!
And for everyone out there that is using Wilcom Hatch and loves it as much as we all do – then SHARE – get the word out everywhere and anywhere – like things, subscribe, share posts, share videos SHARE – and maybe you will help someone else! Make your voice heard -shout it out – be passionate and enthusiastic about Hatch – you never know who is listening!!
Happy Digitizing everyone, and have a great weekend. I am going to finish work and spend some of my weekend “off time” digitizing.
More Hatch videos on Monday 🙂
