For a quick start, open the User Guide in the program (via menu Help) and follow the first chapters.

Play with the trial version and:


  • export your pattern as a BMP or PEM to use in embroidery digitizing software,


  • print patterns at actual size,


  • export to longarm quilt formats.


In the trial version  you will find a collection of pattern samples and backgrounds to start playing.



Limitations of the Trial Version


  • You cannot save your patterns in the native *pre-format, but you can use all Export functions.


  • The function "Convert to Stitches" is not available in the trial.  To test the perfect stitch quality in your embroidery machine, we have included the result of the stitch file made in tutorial movie 2, in two sizes as "_sample block movie 2.dst", located in the folder "Pattern Samples".


  • The function "AutoTrace" is not available in the trial.
