An easy to use, yet extremely powerful computer program, which allows you to create cross stitch, tapestry, beadwork, knitting, and other similar sorts of designs.
It lets you import scanned photos or clip art, chooses suitable colors for you, and converts these into designs, then lets you print out the designs in a variety of easy-to-read patterns on your own printer, together with an estimate of the amount of thread used.
Turn your own photos into charts - use clip art or images copied from the web (copyright may exist in these images so be careful if you wish to sell the designs afterwards)
From start to chart in minutes!
And of course, the more artistic can design their own creations using little more than the mouse.
What you see on screen is what you get on paper and cloth.
Draw full, half, quarter stitches, beads, knots, backstitch..
Squares, circles, flood fill, search & replace, multi-level undo.
Print the result, export as PNG files or PDF files , and so much more!
Add single line comments, copyright information, and miniature keys right onto the design.
