    I have been a user of drawings software since version 5 and this latest version is too cool. I like that it works with both by pc and my apple mac computers. I use various brands of embroidery machines and this will save to all of their needed formats. The included tutorial videos are fabulous and get you up and going in no time.

    I have been using various software titles for embroidery for the past 10 years and I must say, that this software is hands down the easiest to use AND it also creates perfect embroidery designs. I love the fact that I can also use it with my cutting machine as well as quilting projects. Using software is no longer a daunting task!! This makes a PRO out of anyone!
