StitchArtist is a program to create machine embroidery designs from scratch.
You start using existing artwork or by ‘drawing with stitches’
You control the shapes, set the stitch type and properties, and StitchArtist generates stitches for you
The process of design creation, commonly called ‘digitizing’, requires a skilled person using a specialized tool. StitchArtist is that tool, but it is designed to take the difficulty out of the software, leaving the user to concentrate on their designs.
StitchArtist uses a single mode to draw, set stitches, size, edit, rotate, sequence and set properties of design objects. It is easy and intuitive once you know the very basics, which are described in detail in the user guide.
You will be amazed at what you can do, and you will be thoroughly delighted with how easy it is to learn to digitize.
Best of all:
- It has no dongle
- You can run it on as many computers as you own, even mix and match Mac and Windows
- It carries our 90 day money back guarantee
- StitchArtist comes in levels which suit different skill levels
- It is a standalone program so you do not need to own Essentials or any other Embrilliance product first
StitchArtist Level 1
Level 1 is designed for a hobby embroiderer who needs to be able to create stitches without going into debt or spending much computer time. Level 1 offers a limited set of stitch types and, more importantly, properties for those stitches, so that the user can simply ‘create’ without needing to learn many steps.
Typical projects for Level 1 are:
- Applique designs
- Running stitch designs
- Simple filled shapes
- Backgrounds or unifying elements for design compositions
- You can make applique, cross stitch and even freestanding lace!
StitchArtist Level 2
Level 2 includes Level 1 and is designed for production and skills training for those who would like to create more sophisticated designs (logos), as well as a more complete set of tools. It will allow the user to learn a wide cross-section of stitch types and properties, and have enough freedom to create virtually any design. If you are looking to use satins to their fullest extent, this is where you need to look. You can also import .SVG art and some cutting file formats (.FCM and .studio) for cross-purpose use.
Or you can upgrade from Level 1 to Level 2.
StitchArtist Level 3
Level 1 and Level 2 and is designed for someone who either Level 3 includes Level 1 and Level 2 and is designed for someone who either loves to create designs or works commercially in the embroidery field. This level includes advanced items such as:
- An Eyelet tool
- Carving lines
- Graphical operators such as Cut and Union
It also allows for the content within the product to be expanded by publishing Motifs and Embossed effects. Additional controls are available to work how you like. The properties for each stitch type are fully revealed, and operations for vector support, including export, are added; now you can draw .svg and cutting machine designs directly. There’s even a tool to automatically outline existing design stitches.
