Default EmbroideryWare Free Digitizing Program

Hi Everyone,

I am writing a free program for machine embroidery. It's totally free. I started the project about three months ago because I wanted to create a program that would do interesting stitching along a path that my commercial software did not do.

It has evolved to something much more than that. The satin stitching is pretty complete. I am still refining fills, they work but do more jumps than I would like.

I know this is a commercial embroidery forum. Though some of you might like what I am doing.

Please check it out and let me know what you think of my program.

Hi everyone,

There is a new release of EmbroideryWare posted recently.

I am really proud of the this release.

The biggest improvement is being able to set the stitch order of a fill.

As a career digitizer I am impressed that you have done what you have done in such a short time. What do you mean about creating interesting stitching that your commercial software would not do?

Nice Job so far!

Thanks for complementing me on my software!

I use Stitch Era as my commercial software. I like using it. I use the express version which does basic running stitches, zigzags and Estiches. The more advance version probably does more.

After using one commercial program I felt that it was very hard to learn. I found it hard to make the stitches do exactly what I wanted. I read a good book, Digitizing Made Easy by John Deer, which inspired me to create a simple program.

I had recently got a viking designer diamond. It has some embroidery designs which have interesting stitches almost like they were done hand. I asked myself how do I do this in stitch era? The thumbnail below shows one of the things I wanted to achieve. The small stitch object in the center is applied to the two symmetrical curves.

So I decided to write a program to do these special stitches along a path. Since that first step about two months ago I decided to continue with other features. I am pretty proud of where I am now.

Jim

Hi Everyone

A new version of EmbroideryWare is just up. It now does jump stitch anchoring and cutwork.

I have two new videos up showing how these features are used.

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that I now have a web page http://www.embroiderywaresoftware.com/
My web page will be the best place to see what is going on with EmbroideryWare development.

EmbroideryWare is still free. I have a storefront where it can be download for free.

The program will still be up on sourceforge too. I think the webpage though in the long run will be a better way to communicate with my users.

Jim
