To all of you, we wish a Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings!

Would you like an early present?

With the release of Christmas Traditions we’re also releasing an update that supports it, 1.167.

But why stop there?

We have also released 1.168 which includes presents for Essentials and Enthusiast owners!

Essentials users will enjoy a new font, Block Condensed, digitized by our own Erich Campbell. This font is highly useful for commercial-style embroidery and it includes a full set of alternate language glyphs.

Enthusiast owners, rejoice in the new Parametric Knockdown™ stitch!

For most purposes, the Knockdown that we released all those years ago has done well. In fact the entire industry has now copied our little global underlay phenomenon and no one would want to embroider terry cloth without it. With that success, we’ve seen where Knockdown could be used on other media, if we allowed the user to make some small changes, such as bi-directional stitching and variable inflation.

We hope you all enjoy these presents, and we look forward to you sharing with us pictures of what you are making! We love to see the products in use.

Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

-Team Embrilliance

  1. WOW! Thanks Brian, Erich and the rest of the Embrilliance team! I can’t wait to “play” with the new knockdown controls and check out the new font. Best software and support ever!

    1. The platform has had no issues with Big Sur, nor thankfully, any of the Mac OS or Windows OS changes. For a 10-year run, we’re happy about that! Thanks for asking.

  2. Thank you Brian; I look forward to working with it. It’s very busy around here right now. Praying for the END of Covid!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Embrilliance programs! Can’t wait to create with the Christmas Interactive one! Thanks Erich for another great Font, just when I thought I had enough, well okay, you never can have too many fonts!

    1. The program version check will be updated this week. Not every product is affected by every update so we don’t always push the update out to everyone (we foresaw the backlash that Microsoft and Apple are currently facing with their policy regarding updates). Plus if anyone wants to try it, the current version is always available on the Downloads page. It’s different, but we’re old enough to know not to fix it if it isn’t broken.

  4. I have been using knockdown for a few years, thanks for the updates, can’t wait to try out some of the new features on some bulky/chunky chenille scarves for Christmas gifts! Embrilliance is the BEST!

  5. Thank you! I love all Embrilliance programs, you make my hobby an enjoyable journey. Merry Christmas and the best of the New Year to y’all
