Hello All,
*
Noobie to the discussion forums and embroidery.

I would have attached photos but can't get the forum system to upload to work for me. I'm posting this without photos for now to see if somebody can see something obvious.
*
I've been doing embroidery for about a year.***One of the items I have struggled with is the quality of small text on a hat.
*
When I sew out a design on a piece of flat fabric, the text looks great.**However, when I sew out the design on a hat the text quality is poor.**My current project, the text is 0.23 inches in height.
*
I**use Qdigitizing.com**to digitize all my projects.**When I sent back the design for my current project, all they did was add a zig zag underlay for the text.**It improved a little but nowhere near the quality when sewn out on flat fabric.
*
My machine is an Amaya "Big Red" that I bought with very low hours.**Sewing with 75/11 needle, 3.0 oz backing**Acti-feed set to Auto and Acti-feed Min set to 8 per Melco. 900 spm.
*
I have talked with Melco and they are saying they believe it's a digitizing problem.
*
Have tried using #60 thread with a 75/11 needle and the text is still not the quality of the flat sew out.
*
If anybody has any recommendations that would be great.*
