Product description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Jane Greenoff is very well known and respected in the field of cross-stitch and embroidery design. Before she teamed up with Ian Lawson-Smith to produce this package, she had developed free-hand designs on graph paper, with all the consequent mess and crossings out. She freely admits that computer charts have transformed her life. Absolutely everything that is necessary for creating cross-stitch designs is included, and the instructions are straightforward, comprehensive and easy to follow. It is more than advisable to print these off for easy reference.

If are you are computer illiterate or greatly experienced, this is the program for you. You can choose between preferences and tools, use a vast colour collection, receive directions around the screen, learn about using a template to design a simple sampler, work with motifs and engage in many other design activities. Jane also offers lots of tips, all designed to aid understanding and use of the great variety of functions. Particularly helpful is the feature that underlines certain phrases. By clicking on them with the mouse, you will be taken straight to the information you require.

The program is extremely simple to load, and the opportunities within are endless. There are shape cards from different leading manufacturers, more than 100 templates for cards and samplers, over 70 video clips to "show you how" and step-by-step tutorials to illustrate relatively unknown stitches (eg, the Holbein stitch and Velvet stitch). The program also shows you how to use charms, buttons and textures. There are more than 4,800 fabulous motifs, and there is a printable help file. Jane Greenoff believes this is "my definitive guide to stitching", and this reviewer agrees. --Susan Naylor

Manufacturer's Description

Bursting with a wealth of information, including all the advanced tools, editing features and functions necessary to create the very highest quality stitch patterns. Plus, hints, tips and inspiring designs from Britain’s best-loved stitcher – Jane Greenoff – this program is what no stitcher should be without.

Create perfect stitching charts in the way that suits you best without the mess or fuss of using graph paper. Design by hand by placing colour blocks or symbols on the grid to represent your stitches, or utilise the designs from the built-in library of over 4,800 motifs, or convert your own photographs, favourite paintings, clip-art images or drawings into cross stitch designs. Scan your chosen image or directly input it into your PC from a digital camera, then create the look you want by using import features such as brightness adjust, remove background colour, rotate, crop and despeckle. Finally import your design on to the master sheet and convert it into a beautiful stitch chart that can be printed out as an easy to read pattern.

Plus all these features included: over 70 step-by-step video tutorials to show you how to work exciting new stitches such as Holbein and velvet stitch, Blackwork, add texture, combine threads, use charms and buttons, preview your design as stitches, colour blocks or symbols on screen, or as it will appear on your chosen fabric - Aida, Linen, Tapestry Canvas or Plastic Canvas, automatically calculate the amount of thread needed to complete your design, which can be viewed on screen or printed out as a materials list, use the background bitmap template to import a graphic as an underlay for your design, making it useful for tracing sections of a picture to help layout a design, automatic matching of the darkest print symbols to the darkest shade colours, giving superb, easy to follow symbols charts, quickly sort by numerical or brightness order, merge and reduce the number of palette colours used in your chart to create your own custom colour ranges, and includes, enhanced exporting features allow you to export charts to many file formats, including .EPS, .JPG, .PNG, .TGA and .TIF
