Description

EQStitch, Embroidery + Machine Appliqu Digitizing Software for your EQ7 The Electric Quilt CompanyNow EQ can sew! EQStitch is an EQ7 plug-in for designing and digitizing embroidery and machine applique. You must already own EQ7 for this to work. This auto-digitizer makes your EQ drawings come to life with embroidery, machine applique, quilting and redwork. Supports multiple embroidery machine formats (see below). Includes over 500 built-in designs. Perfect for new embroidery machine owners or beginning embroiderers. Dream – Design – DIGITIZE! EQStitch is an auto-digitizer of EQ drawings. As an EQ7 user, you’ll find learning the auto-digitizing elements of EQStitch easy as the tools are already familiar to you. You’ll be able to create embroidery designs in minutes and incorporate the designs into your quilt designing. What is a Plug-in? This plug-in will convert your EQ7 to EQStitch. But don’t worry, EQStitch includes all the great features of EQ7, plus it’s enhanced with a Stitching worktable that uses tools already familiar to an EQ7 user. This new worktable gives you the ability to digitize any EQ drawings for embroidery, machine applique or quilting. (EQ7 sold separately, please check my other listings to purchase an EQ7 if you don’t already own one.) Lettering and Monograms EQStitch has a Text tool! The drawing tools on the Stitching worktable are identical to those on the Applique tab of the Block worktable…except for the new Text tool. This makes lettering and monogramming so easy! Chooses from ANY True-Type font on your computer to stitch out or cut for applique. Once the text is converted to patches, you can move, resize and rotate each letter for even more personalization. Embroidery, Redwork and Quilting Adorable designs, redwork and quilting stencils for all occasions. Use any of the 310 embroidery designs in the library, or draw your own. Import photos for tracing to make freehand a bit easier. Choose from 19 different fill styles and adjust the angle and density to fit your design. Adjust the underlay settings to give your design stability. Easily add a Steil Stitch (similar to a satin stitch) to your design if you like. Or, for redwork and those special accents, use a Bean Stitch edge. There are many options to play with! Digitize and Export Creating your digitized file is easy! Draw your design or edit one of the 500 designs (300+ embroidery and 200+ machine applique) in the library. Then choose the best fill, underlay and edge stitching for your design. Use the automatic sort threads tool before you write the file to eliminate unnecessary thread color changes when stitching. Watch a simulation of stitching to see exactly how the design will stitch. Go back and make changes before exporting the file. Standard and custom hoop sizes are available. Export the file for any of the below machine types: (Not sure if EQStitch will work with your machine? Try it! Download the above Heart sample design and try it on your embroidery machine.) Baby Lock/Brother (*.PES) DOWNLOAD *.PES Elna/Janome/Kenmore (*.SEW) DOWNLOAD *.SEW Janome/Elna (*.JEF) DOWNLOAD *.JEF Melco/Bernina (*.EXP) DOWNLOAD *.EXP (Thread color may vary) (EQStitch only exports *.EXP files for Bernina. The *.ART file is a proprietary of Bernina so EQStitch can not export that file type. Older Berninas do not accept the *.EXP file, but some of the newer ones do. Please contact Bernina with questions regarding the *.EXP file type and your machine.

EQStitch will not digitize your photographs, it can only auto-digitize EQ drawings. Anything drawn on the Artwork tab of the Stitching worktable can be digitized. EQStitch files are for home embroidery machines. There is no exporting option available for computer-guided quilting machines such as CompuQuilter, IntelliQuilter, Statler Stitcher, PC Quilter and HandiQuilter. Machine Applique Your friends will be impressed! Personalize anything by adding machine applique! Use your favorite fabrics and a Zigzag (similar to the embroidery Steil stitch, or a basic satin stitch) or an E-stitch (like blanket stitch) edge. It’s fun and easy to see these designs come to life. Adjust the density settings of the Zigzag stitch for a looser edge, or try the E-stitch. This edge stitch adds some pizzazz to your applique designs. Print templates for the applique, as well as the alignment pattern for the hoop. EQStitch includes over 200 machine applique designs in it’s library! Embellish your Quilts See your Stitchings on your quilts! There is no other product on the market that allows complete quilt design AND the ability to digitize embroidery and machine applique in one! Each time you save a stitching design, an embellishment gets added to your Sketchbook as well. Embellishments are used on Lyer 3 of your quilt layout for positioning your design. If your embellishment looks too small for your quilt, go back to the Stitching worktable, adjust the size of the design (including the hoop size most likely) and Add to Sketchbook again. A NEW embellishment of the right size will be ready for you to use on your quilt. More Help Help is at your fingertips! The Electric Quilt Company has added 33 minutes of video tutorials, 6 step-by-step PDF lessons, 12 How Do I? topics and a full digitizing section in the help files. Choose the appropriate learning style for you…or do them all! And of course the Electric Quilt Company runs a forum that is very helpful with instructions and ideas.
