Our Top Level Art and Stitch PLUS is vector-based, professional, yet easy to use digitizing software for longarm quilting and machine embroidery.

Quickly draw (or trace an image) by clicking from point to point, right-click to finish. Select and turn the artwork into stitches and save in the format of your longarm system or embroidery machine - that easy!


With the special tools Magic Circle and Magic Square you can create quilt block patterns in just a few minutes.  The Creative Fill function lets you create complex quilt patterns, even if you're not an artist!

Or use the Design on Path function, with the setting "Snap Together" to create a beautiful, complex continuous longarm quilt pattern in no time.


In Art and Stitch you will also find special embroidery functions not seen in other embroidery software: create freestanding lace in a few clicks, Hardanger, Richelieu cutwork, Battenberg ribbon lace.


The included Text/Lettering program is not just for embroiderers: special fonts let you create text designs for longarm quilting by typing on your keyboard.

You can also turn purchased digitized alphabets into a keyboard font with the new Font Mapping tool "Font Creator".


In our latest version 7 of Art and Stitch PLUS  you will find two different versions of Photo-Stitch: a color type for embroidery machines and a monochrome type creating a continuous line for longarm systems.
