Introducing Embrilliance!

Embroidery Software for Everyone

Want to customize, resize, or personalize designs?  You’ll love Embrilliance! From everything from basic tweaks to custom design creation, Embrilliance has a solution. Embrilliance Essentials opens the door with sizing, composition, and adding names, monograms and text. Embrilliance Enthusiast adds  Knockdown Stitches to manage high-pile fabrics from toweling to fleece, stitch-by-stitch editing, precise positioning, and arranging designs in amazing arrays. The StitchArtist line gives you increasing levels of control for custom creations from simple applique to the most complicated logos and art. Add  the unique design-fixing functions of Density Repair Kit for overly heavy designs in your collection and mapping your classic stitch-file alphabets into fonts with AlphaTricks, and you’ll see that Embrilliance offers solutions for every embroiderer.

If you want to get in on the patch craze, but don’t want to learn to digitize, you can use the automated tools in Merrowly Patches to create a rectangular, circular, or contour-shaped faux-merrow stitch border in-the-hoop patch design around any existing design or text! If you just need a classic or fun patch shape, Merrowly’s included library of over 150 designs, combined with 6 multi-scale patch fonts and 10 fun fonts will give you all the tools you need to make professional looking patches of your own!

Free Project:

‘Love’ Merrowly Patch

This rockin’ retro patch created by our own Lisa Shaw combines the classic swashy lettering of our Merrowly ‘Groovy’ font with an automatic faux-merrow ‘page wrap’ contoured edge to create a custom-shaped patch you’ll love to stitch and show off!

Note: This is an Interactive Merrowly Design! This means you can select your favorite patch making method from creating the entire patch on stabilizer with thread as pictured to hand or pre-cutting your own patch material. To access the interactive features, Select the Love Patch design in the Object pane. NOTICE the Interactive Tab that pops up in the properties pane. This is where you can have some fun and change the style of patch you would like to create! Check out the section on Patch Creation in the Merrowly Patches Instructional PDF for information on the settings. This PDF file also contains stitching guidance as well as some background information on patch making.

The design is provided in our native .BE format, enabling you to save a stitch file for any embroidery machine. If you aren’t already an Embrilliance owner, we provide a free method to use our software called Express Mode that not only allows you to use any of the wonderful free designs found in our project blog, but also enables you to install and create basic text treatments with fonts distributed in our popular .BX format produced by many embroidery design creators.
