A complete software system designed specifically for
Mac® computers, TruEmbroidery™ Software offers everything you need to bring embroidery to life.  Common Features include:

  • Make your choice of background color and select from eight different fabric textures.
  • Designs are shown in your preferred real-life hoop.
  • Watch your design “stitching” on the screen with the Design Player.
  • The Zoom Slider makes it easy to magnify or shrink the embroidery view. Swipe your Mac® Magic Mouse or Magic Trackpad to pan around the work area.
  • Choose between inches or millimeters; view any measurements in US or metric as an alternative to your current settings.

Multi-format and multi-document: load and save most popular embroidery formats

  • Load designs by thumbnail view or from the Finder, search the name and notes in Spotlight or open by file name.
  • View multiple projects side by side on screen. Automatically reopen designs when launching applications. Design parts stay separate unless you combine.
