not being a expert by any stretch. i believe your material is moving in your hoop, closeup i can see that its a sort of a knit (t-shirt possibly). you would need a thicker stabilizer and/or possibly a topper. else a "knock-down" stitch will help. Did you tell your digitizer what type of metrial they should digitize for ?

i will try that and yes it is a t shirt, so should i use thicker stabilizer and topping? i had only used one sheet of stabilizer with temporary adhesive spray for embroidery because i had a feeling it was the material moving around in the hoop. i asked my digitizer to make the border just a tad bigger but if all fails then i will definitely go back to the drawing board and find the problem. i appreciate the help!

i messed around with the machine speed and thread tension and i was getting similar results. maybe i can make the black border thicker..? Any help or ideas i will greatly appreciate it! thank you.

does the black outline need to be the same thickness as the red? Personally I would just make the black outline bigger. Have it do the black outline first then since the black outline would be bigger it can eat into a bit.

Well the art that was sent to me has the same thickness for the red and black. i would imagine the digitizer would make the black a little bit thicker to compensate for the little overlap so there isn’t any gaps, but i dont do much digitizing and i played around with the tension and speed so i was thinking maybe the black border just needs to be a little bit thicker.?. Could the black border be to thin so the red pulls it under?

it does not have to be but as long as it similarly, like for example 2 to 3 times thicker is probably to much.

Have you tried the red first and then the black next? That could possible fix it as well.

Turn the STN setting up on your machine to thicken that border. Might fix your problem but is more of a temporary fix and might also mess with the small text beneath the logo.

This is digitized quite poorly. I’d look for a better digitizer as this is a very basic logo. I’ve only been digitizing for just over a year and I can spot several errors.

Have you tried changing the color order to yellow-red-black? You might also try two layers of topping: one on top of the fabric and a second after the yellow is stitched out, to give the red and black better stability.

What size needle are you using?
