Welcome to StitchArtist Level 3!

We made StitchArtist Level 3 for those who love to create designs and digitizers working commercially in machine embroidery. StitchArtist Level 3 includes advanced tools such as Styles, QuickStyles, an Eyelet tool, Carving lines, graphical shaping operators such as Cut, AND, Union, Flatten, Inflate/Deflate, Re-construct, and Break. Additional controls are available to work in your preferred method. The properties for each stitch type are fully revealed and operations for vector support, including export, are added. With level 3, you can draw .svg and cutting machine designs directly. It offers branching of all object types, including sub-branches that don’t need to touch. There’s even a tool to automatically outline existing design stitches, making for easy borders on existing stitch-file elements and a patch Edge tool with a faux Merrow stitch type that turns any outline into a fully-edged emblem. The inclusion of advanced lettering tools makes it easy to create custom enveloping, baselines of any shape, and templates to automate name-drops.

StitchArtist Level 3 allows you to create and publish assets like custom Motif stitches and Emboss patterns for yourself and other StitchArtist users. For digitizers who need to create custom fonts for their embroidery clients or those that want to publish fonts for their fellow StitchArtist users, level 3 includes object-based, scalable font publishing using our world-renowned BX installer format, complete with rights management built-in, all at no additional cost.

Easy to work with

Editing outlines is a frequent task when creating designs. StitchArtist is very helpful in this task:

  1. Stitch generation is instant and automatic.
  2. No mode changes for selection, editing, coloring, moving, sizing, rotating or adjusting properties.
  3. You can work in any number of display modes. You aren’t locked to a specific mode during any process.
  4. Simple geometric shapes are easily created and altered with the automated shape tool.
  5. Perfect curves are 3 clicks away with the 3 point arc tool.
  6. Users unfamiliar with Bezier curves can use a simulated spline system that’s easier to learn and teach; helpful especially in early instruction.
  7. Import and Export in common vector forms such as .svg and cutter file formats like .studio or .fcm.
  8. Quick styles and Stylesheets accelerate the workflow by giving you fast access to common properties for stitch objects and allowing you to publish these properties for installation on any StitchArtist system.

Tell me more about StitchArtist!

StitchArtist is not a photo-to-stitch tool, nor is it an auto-digitizing program. The success of those types of tools is subjective and many have attempted to include automatic digitizing with varied results. StitchArtist is not a customizing tool (used to manipulate existing designs.) StitchArtist is a tool to create embroidery designs; whether you want to make designs for hobby, cottage industry or professional use, StitchArtist is for you. We designed this product for simplicity and instruction from the ground up to serve

In a radical departure from the typical digitizing interface, 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 basics, which are described in detail in the included user guide. StitchArtist is part of the Embrilliance Platform, sharing one program with our other titles like Essentials and Enthusiast. This means that as you add titles, your features grow without having to switch between programs! StitchArtist is not dependent on another program; StitichArtist does not duplicate Essentials or Enthusiast‘s features, nor do you need them to create designs, but for those who have all three, they work together seamlessly to offer incredible ability in a single interface.

Embrilliance works with any embroidery machine!

All Embrilliance Platform programs work with any embroidery machine capable of loading embroidery files, as the platform can read and write at least one format that every embroidery machine understands. This includes all machines from Brother/Baby Lock, Janome, Viking, Pfaff, Bernina, and any commercial embroidery machine that reads the standard .DST format.

All Embrilliance Platform Programs can export the following file types:

.CSD, .DST, .DSZ, .EXP, .EXP+, .HUS, .JEF, .PCS, .PCM, .PES, .SEW, .SHV, .TAP, .VIP, .VP3, .XXX

You can even set stitch parameters for your favorite file type, including trim and automatic centering options for the universal DST file type used by both commercial and home embroidery machines.

Applique cut files can be saved as .SVG, .PLT, .FCM (ScanNCut) and .studio (Silhouette).

Operating systems

Windows XP SP2 and later, OSX 10.58 and later. The Embrilliance platform is compatible with both and allows you to install on all the computers you own, including a mix of both Mac and Windows systems.
