End of 2015 we will release a new program "QE Pattern Finder", to search, find and organize all your Quilting and Embroidery Designs.


In 2014: The third version of our Art and Stitch program has been released. Lots of exciting new functions. The Art and Stitch PLUS embroidery digitizing program now has four world's first features: Richelieu, Hardanger, Freestanding lace and Battenburg lace, all doable with just a few clicks!

August 2014: our 7th version of Pre-Design has been released: Pre-Design Studio IV.
