We teach people how to use embroidery digitizing software from beginners to professional level.

Learn to digitize from a professional educator
who owns one of the most successful
embroidery sites on the web!

Has This Happened To You?

Did you buy digitizing software from a dealer with the promise you could take digitizing lessons there "any time", but now it seems they don't have "any time" to teach you?   Yes or No

Did you look for a digitizing teacher but find people giving so-called "lessons" who either can't digitize, can't teach, or both?   Yes or No

Did you read the owners manual but find it as useful for learning to digitize as the one that came with your car would be for learning to drive?   Yes or No

Did you buy one or two or even three different digitizing programs, searching for the ONE that will make sense to you?   Yes or No

Did you get "stuck" at being able to digitize only one type of artwork or only basic designs?   Yes or No

Did someone tell you that to make better designs you have to edit the artwork, so now you are spending time editing artwork instead of digitizing?   Yes or No

Did you pay for digitizing lessons but forget half of what you learned before you got home?   Yes or No



If You Answered YES To Any Of Those Questions...

Hi - I'm Larry Pike and I feel your pain!  Those experiences are exactly what I hear from our customers and students every day.  In fact, those are the top 7 reasons why people are now Holly's students and couldn't be happier ( CLICK HERE FOR PROOF!  ) with their choice to try out the "YouCanDigitize" system.

I set up this website for my wife Holly to teach others how to digitize.  Holly teaches people how to digitize either for fun OR for profit. You can choose which destination you want (hobby or pro) and Holly will help you get there! Her students are taught through interactive online webinars, in-person workshops, 1-on-1 mentoring, Q&A sessions, our onling forum, online videos, tutorial CD's, and more!



These designs were all digitized by Holly's students!


Read what Holly's students say about her here......

"Holly and Larry are wonderful. They will work with you, understand your problems and answer questions quickly and in understandable language."       "Work with a dealer/digitizer such as Holly & Larry who are always there with their support, teaching, knowledge and assistance. It will make a huge difference in your understanding of Generations and your ability to tap into its capabilities."       "I think the single most valuable thing I have learned so far is that I don't have to be an artist to be creative."       "Holly is the best instructor I have ever worked with and ALWAYS gets back with me if I have a question."      


"You CAN Digitize" is what Holly tells people whenever she starts a new class. Many people think they can't digitize because they have tried before and "didn't get it" in their previous attempts. But here's what you need to know... Choosing the right teacher is crucial to your success!

Holly understands digitizing!

There are a lot of people who teach digitizing that either don't understand digitizing or don't understand teaching, and sometimes... both! You won't have either problem when you learn to digitize with Holly!

Since starting her own digitizing business and website in 2001, Holly has digitized well over 10,000 embroidery designs! Would you rather learn digitizing from someone who has digitized a few designs so they could learn the software before they teach the class, or someone who has digitized over ten thousand designs in order to make a living as a digitizer for 10 years? Right!

You can see some of Holly's digitizing on her embroidery club website at and on her design store website at HollysDesignStudio.comto get an idea of the variety and quality of Holly's digitizing and that of her students now too!

Holly understands teaching!

Holly's formal education and work background is in teaching. She studied music education at Northeastern Illinois University. After school, she taught music and band in Chicago area schools. She transitioned from teaching kids to running a music company where along with other work she taught teachers how to teach more effectively for several years. Later, Holly took a job testing, designing and teaching software for a "Fortune 100" company in Buffalo Grove Illinois.

In these jobs, Holly has taught everyone from 5th graders to corporate management teams and everything in between. One nice thing about teaching (besides June, July, and August) is that the skills for teaching one subject are transferable to teaching other subjects. Shortly after learning to digitize, Holly began teaching our first employee to digitize. Since then, she has honed her skills in digitizing and has continued to develop techniques for teaching those skills to others.

As Holly's student you will quickly discover that...

"You CAN Digitize!"

Do you already own Generations software?

"YES... I have Generations Software To Work With Already"


"NO... I Don't Have Generations Software To Work With Now"

"I have learned to use every tool in Generations!"

"I can and do use my Generations an a daily basis. Thank you Holly."

"It is difference between learning your digitizing software and leaving it on the shelf."

"Holly does not just show you how to use Generations, she gives you the "why" too!"

"Generations is simply the most user friendly digitizing software I have ever used."

"Holly's way of teaching is so layed back and left open for questions that you can't help but learn."
