Interactive Digitizing Lesson Lessons with Proven Results
Whether you’re looking to create your own designs, edit existing designs or simply learn more about the beautiful art of embroidery, our premium hands-on digitizing lessons are just for you & unlike any other. This is because John teaches you the age-old theory behind creating smooth running embroidery designs. Like most art forms, creating quality embroidery designs isn’t a guessing game. There are rules & guidelines that must be followed to achieve stunning professional results. Things such as push compensation, pull compensation, design density, underlay & reducing jump stitches are all key factors that effect how well a design sews out. Don’t know what some of these things are? Not a problem, that’s exactly what our lessons are designed to teach you. John takes the frustration out of learning how to digitize by explaining terms & rules in a way that’s easy to digest & makes it fun with exercises that’ll truly help you to understand how to apply them quickly. The name of our website says it all: digitizing made easy.
The Missing Piece of the Puzzle
We provide you with a solid foundation of theory to help you get past the learning curve. After all, trying to digitize without knowing the rules & theory is like trying to paint without a brush.

John has personally won 30 separate digitizing awards in the commercial industry and wrote the book on digitizing called “Digitizing Made Easy” which has sold over 40,000 copies & is used in Universities across the United States to teach those studying textile. John has produced hundreds of instructional and educational videos, which apply to embroidery enthusiasts of all levels. He has given hundreds of workshops and seminars all over the world & taught well over 100,000 people.

"I’ve been doing machine embroidery for about four years. Eventually, one would like to making their own designs. But man, there is very little professional help to find out there. Shortly after, I discovered Digitizing Made Easy. That was the time I thought I could really understand it, I could start making my own designs. I bought some of the paid classes from John and everything is explained so clearly. I learned so much. I did the level 1 classes and went for my certification right after. Passed without any remarks the first time!
Thanks to John Deer right now I like digitizing more than the actual embroidery. I’m starting to make my first few designs for paying customers while saving up for a bigger embroidery machine! As soon as I have a few days off again I’m going to try to tackle level 2. Just start it, people, you don’t know it’s such fun until you give digitizing a try! Yes, it does take a bit of time to learn it, but you can do it!"

"The lessons are very informative and John breaks it down into small sections so that it’s easy to follow.
I have been digitising since around 2005. Eventually I purchased John’s DVD series and my designs improved, but not as much as when I did John’s online course. I have completed level 1 and 2 and found them to be invaluable, my designs have improved considerably ….finally everything has come together.
I would highly recommend John’s digitising lessons to anyone who wants to learn to digitise. John teaches you the way he was taught many years ago before the age of computers and brings it into the computer age. So why wouldn’t you want to learn from the “Master”? I ‘m looking forward to Level 3 when it’s released and any future lessons that John might produce."

"Digitizing lessons from Digitizing Made Easy are the best around, without question. When I started on the lessons by John, I learnt so much about the specifics of digitizing; the whys and wherefores of what to do and what not to do, and more importantly why. I did a digitizing course through a different source. This was not successful as I found the delivery frustrating. A 2 hour lesson could really have been condensed into 15 minutes. I was confused and not able to use it properly. Then I came across Sue and John. What a transformation to my digitizing abilities. I quickly grasped the software and learnt so much more from them both, to the extent that I was able to start up my own small business.
Start at the beginning and work your way through. It will be money well spent as you will have the best foundation for digitizing and learning the software. Each lesson builds upon previous experience but can also be used as a stand alone. The topics covered are manageable in size so that you don’t get overwhelmed and you gain confidence as you go along. Cannot recommend these lessons enough."
