Density

The density of fillings or satin stitches is defined by the distance between one stitch and the one beneath. It influences the stitch amount of the whole design. A high density may cause problems - in the worst case thread or even the needle may break if stitches are too close together, a modification of the design then is indispensable. Punchers always have to know and consider the fabric to be used and the type and count of the embroidery thread to be employed so to choose the right density. One and only program for various fabrics in most cases is not possible!
