If you do not receive your registration within 24 hours, then check that the e-mail address email@example.com is "whitelisted" so it will not be blocked by your e-mail client.

All CDs contain both 32- and 64-bit versions of the software.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR MAC USERS
All S&S Computing software products are native Windows applications. That means they will not run on Mac computers without emulation (virtualization) software and a copy of Windows® installed as well. While we do not endorse emulators, there are several well-known commercial ones such as Bootcamp® for Mac (which ships with newer Mac computers), Parallels® Desktop for Mac, and VMware® Fusion. A free emulator which is highly regarded is Oracle's Virtual Box which does not require rebooting between the Windows and Mac operating systems. Once the emulation software is installed on your Mac, you must load a copy of Windows into the emulator. Most emulators will work with any copy of Windows starting at Windows XP and later. If you don't already own a copy of Windows, then legal copies of XP can be obtained for around $30 (on E-bay® for example).
SewArt Embroidery Software
SewArt is software for converting clipart or other forms of raster and vector images into an embroidery file. Image processing tools and a step-by-step wizard are provided to produce an image suitable for yielding a high-quality embroidery stitch-out. You may download the User Manual - click here - for more details about the many features available in SewArt. To download SewArt, or to make an online purchase, please see information above. NOTE: This digitizing software can be used alone without SewWhat or SewWhat Pro.
SewArt has been tested in the Softpedia labs using several industry-leading security solutions and found to be completely clean of adware/spyware components.
Features of SewArt (an auto-digitizer for embroidery files)
- Reads raster or vector format images (supported input formats include *.bmp, *.png, *.jpg, *.gif, *.svg, *.wmf, and *.emf)
- Allows images in other (unsupported) file formats to be pasted into the SewArt workspace
- Converts images to high-quality embroidery files for sewing
- Supports output embroidery file formats including Brother (c) *.pes, Janome (c) *.jef, and Singer (c) *.xxx (these may be converted by SewWhat-Pro, or other embroidery editors, to a much larger variety of embroidery file formats compatible with most home and commercial machines)
- Contains image-processing tools for converting images into color-reduced, smoothed images suitable for digitizing
- Includes a variety of pattern fills which can be applied to sew individual regions of the image
- Supports both auto-digitizing and manual digitizing options to give substantial user control over the digitizing process

- The help that accompanies SewArt contains a mini-tutorial that describes the steps necessary to load input image files and convert them to embroidery files. After opening SewArt by double-clicking the desktop icon, click the Help/Help Topics menu item. This will open the Getting Started main help page which presents a step-by-step tutorial for using the various features of SewArt.
- Several image-processing tools are available in SewArt. In many cases, these will be necessary to use in order to reduce the color content and smooth the image file before it can be sewn. Usually, clipart images are already smooth enough to be sewn immediately, so these constitute a good set of images for starting to use the digitizing features of SewArt. Once a suitable image has been obtained the auto-digitizing Sewing mode is entered by clicking the Convert toolbar button (the sewing-machine icon). This presents a stitching toolbar from which choices for pattern fills, stitch angles, etc., can be made. Options for auto-digitizing the entire image or just a single color, or manually sewing each color in the image, are available on this toolbar.
- Below is a clipart image that was sewn with SewArt using the default pattern fill. The textured fill appears after the image has been converted (sewn) to stitches. In this case, the conversion process took less than 5 minutes to complete. More complicated images will take longer and require use of the image conversion tools prior to producing the embroidery file.

Free Programmable Fill (PAS) Creator+Editor
The programmable fills available in SewArt are stored in PAS file format. They are automatically loaded when the Sewing mode is opened. The PAS Creator application is a free application that allows you to edit existing fills and create new ones.
The figure below shows the workspace for the PAS editor. The outline of a heron has been imported (using the Paste button) and serves as a template for creating the PAS outline points (the red points added by clicking along the template). The "motif" view to the right shows how the pattern will appear when it fills a region in SewArt. The PAS file should be saved to the "Pattern Fills" folder in the SewArt folder to appear in the fill list.
