Creative DRAWings XII represents the most advanced technology in the embroidery design field today

Creative DRAWings software is a unique software solution which allows you to create designs easily and fast, either from scratch or by using vector images or even bitmap images and stitch files. It is equally perfect for novices as well as experienced users who may use it in combination with their existing software solution. Creative DRAWings can be used for graphics designing, textile and screen printing, embroidery, monogramming as well as computerized quilting.

With innovative features that can easily transform your creative ideas into beautiful embroidery, Creative DRAWings is the perfect embroidery software match for everyone. Creative DRAWings is not like other embroidery software on the market. It is designed to do the thinking, allowing your creative ideas to flow free. That means you don’t have to worry about the technical issues in creating your embroidery design. And with all of the added features in Version 12, the possibilities are unlimited.

Works on both Mac and the latest Windows versions


The software now works on the latest and previous version of MAC OS, compared to the release date of the software. Also, it works on Windows 10 and 11 with the latest service packs installed. Now the OS (operating system) is not a limit for your creativity

Creative DRAWings XII New Features:

Introducing the new patent pending Sketch stitch

Our newest addition to our embroidery software is the patent pending Sketch stitch technique. With Sketch, a bitmap image can be transformed into a charcoal sketch with just a black thread or an assortment of gray threads. The technique is tailored for use mostly on white fabric and covers roughly 20% of the area, making it versatile for embroidery on delicate materials like t-shirts. Reversed versions of Sketch on dark fabrics is also supported. This added feature expands the range of customizable options for our valued users.

Edit bitmap images that are filled with stitches inside the node editor

The node editor can now be used to edit bitmap images that contain stitch patterns. By inserting nodes and adjusting their positioning, the user may modify the shape and design of the image as desired. This added feature offers enhanced flexibility and customization for bitmap images with stitching, enabling more precise editing capabilities. This functionality can be particularly useful for stitching the image in a specific shape or area. Overall, the node editor's ability to edit bitmap images with stitches provides exciting possibilities for visual creativity.

Ability to rotate, slant and re-size bitmap shapes that are filled with stitches

This feature allows the user to rotate, slant, and re-size bitmap shapes that have been filled with stitches, therefore adding a new level of flexibility for artists and crafters who can create original and personalized projects. This function can also address stitching challenging areas or achieving desired symmetry in a finished product.

Apply trim and intersect on bitmap images

Another way to manipulate bitmap images is by using the Trim and Intersect tools. For example, trim allows the user to trim parts of the design and create holes. Intersect can also be utilized to combine multiple shapes, keeping only the overlapping area. With these tools, users have the ability to enhance their bitmap images and create unique embroidery designs.

Convert images with transparency to stitches without filling the transparent areas

Creative DRAWings XII supports PNG files with transparency and will only generate stitches in the non-transparent area of the image. This ensures that the finished product has clean lines and does not waste any thread or fabric by filling in unnecessary spaces.

Overlapping objects create holes in bitmap images

This feature is very helpful as it removes stitches that are not visible when objects overlap with bitmap images. When an object is placed over a bitmap fill, a hole is generated in the desired shape. This feature works with all stitch types, including Cross-stitch, Photostitch, PaintStitch and Sketch. The overlapping functionality extends to objects underneath the bitmap fill, where any overlapping areas will be removed, creating a more streamlined design. This feature enhances the overall appearance of the designs and saves time in the editing process.

Automatic color selection in photostitch depending on the fabric color

In dark fabrics, Photostitch is automatically filled with white color and vice versa. This feature is applied on monochrome PhotoStitch designs, it saves editing time, and ensures that designs will stand out.

Array fill with bitmap fill types

The new Array tool allows the user to fill an area using a bitmap image. This results in stunning effects with Cross-stitch, Photostitch, PaintStitch, and Sketch, which can take any design project to the next level. Usage of this feature is really simple, therefore allowing the user to effortlessly experiment with different patterns to achieve unique results every time.

Use bitmap images for your rectangular or circular arrays

Bitmap images in a rectangular or circular array can add a new dimension to any project. Whether it's a cross-stitch design, Photostitch, PaintStitch, or Sketch, these arrays allow for unique patterns and symmetry. It is truly easy to create these arrays, using any bitmap image in a chosen array shape. Size and placement are fully customizable. The result is a visually striking design that will certainly impress.

Show - hide objects during editing

This tool is meant to temporarily hide objects from the screen, to facilitate editing of multi-layered designs, such as fill areas, shapes, and borders stacked on top of each other. The tool practically helps the user focus and handle underlying shapes and layers, without having to move the upper layers, while keeping them out of the way. This allows the clearer editing, creating intricate designs becomes simpler and more efficient.

Support for vertical text

Creative DRAWings XII offers support for vertical text placement. This feature automatically generates stitches to fill the designated text area, allowing a seamless integration of vertical lettering into the designs. This addition offers greater design flexibility and allows for unique visual elements in embroidery projects.

Precise text spacing between characters

Embroidery letter spacing can now easily be adjusted with numeric values. Depending on the design, a smaller value will result in tighter spacing while a larger value will create looser spacing between letters. These settings can be adjusted to the user’s liking, allowing for maximum customization of the designs.

Smooth nodes - fine tune vector shape

Creative DRAWings XII automatically removes any unnecessary nodes, thus increasing the quality of the designs created after trace (Auto-digitize). Since cusp nodes are not to be removed by this automatic tool, converting the cusp nodes into smooth nodes is recommended before applying the tool.

Fit the embroidery design in the hoop automatically

Creative DRAWings XII offers the “fit to hoop” option, a unique feature to conveniently fit any design in the hoop. The software automatically scales the design to fit within the embroidery area of the hoop. No more manually adjusting or guessing at the correct size -the software takes care of it.

Change the density of stitch designs (.dst, .pes, .jef, .vip etc.)

Creative DRAWings XII allows adjusting the density of stitching in embroidery files like .dst, .pes, .jef, .vip, etc. within a 25% range. Fluctuating the density adds emphasis to certain features or reduces the stitch count for more delicate fabrics. This fine-tuning can also be helpful in compensating for changes in the design’s scale.

Apply Special functions (Trim and Stop) on objects through the Sequence manager

The Sequence manager allows more customization of the designs. The "Trim" function triggers a thread trim before a specific object, allowing more control over the design process. The "Stop" function pauses the embroidery machine before stitching the selected object, offering the chance to change thread colors or add embellishments. This added feature in the Sequence manager allows for even more precise and creative embroidery designs.

Auto add Fix / Lock stitches, if needed, in stitch designs (.dst, .pes, .jef, .vip etc.)

Proper stabilization of the embroidery is crucial to prevent unraveling or distortion. Creative DRAWings XII automatically adds fix and lock stitches, where necessary, to raw stitch designs like .dst, .pes, .jef, .vip etc. This not only saves time and effort, it also ensures high-quality results with every design.

Fix: small stabilizing stitches added at the beginning of an object to stabilize it
Lock: small stabilizing stitches added at the end of an object to prevent unraveling

Replaced Colors dock by a smart edit box and swatches

The old Color dock has been replaced with a more efficient and user-friendly, smart edit box for naming or inputting color codes, coupled with an expanded swatch display. The edit box allows quick access to specific colors, while the expanded swatch display provides an at-a-glance view of all available colors. This new setup streamlines the design process and enhances the overall usability.

Find a specific color by searching with a hex color code or a specific thread color name/number

Search in the Colors dock is now possible by using a hex code, also known as a hex triplet. Exact shades can be selected just by inputting the six-digit combination of letters and numbers. Alternatively, a certain thread of the current thread palette can be located by searching with the respective thread color name or number. Finding a color has never been easier.

Convert vector-based objects to raw stitches for accurate stitch editing

The ability to convert vector-based objects into raw stitches allows for more precise editing, when for example the stitches of a design are adjusted to match the tension of the fabric, therefore producing better results on the finished product.

Manual mode improvements

Manual mode has been significantly enhanced in Creative DRAWings XII so that experienced users can have more control over how the software generates embroidery. When switching from Auto to Manual the software automatically separates fills from outlines, re-arranges items for fewer color changes, and trims whatever is necessary, in case an object is moved from back to front, to avoid changing the design.

New help system

The new help system utilizes HTML for easy updates and allows for greater language accessibility. No need to download language-specific files as the online repository allows for immediate access to the help content in any supported language. For those who prefer offline access, downloading the file remains an option. This system not only streamlines the user’s experience, but also allows for quick updates and improvements without requiring a software update.

When loading a stitch file or an artwork file, the new design will have the same name

When loading a stitch or artwork file in Creative DRAWings v. XII, the new design automatically inherits the name of the file. This allows for easier organization, quick and efficient access to the designs and minimizes managerial work. Renaming the design during the saving process is always possible.

Objects in Manual mode have either Fill or Pen - not both

In manual mode, objects now have either fill or outline (pen), instead of both. This change provides a more intuitive user experience, uncomplicated color changes and better aligns with traditional digitizing software, providing more control over a design.
