Reads raster or vector format images (supported input formats include *.bmp, *.png, *.jpg, *.gif, *.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.
System Requirements SewArt is a native Windows® application. It will run on versions of the Windows OS (Operating System) including XP, VISTA, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Use on the MAC® Operating system requires a Windows Emulator. While we do not recommend any particular emulators, MAC users have told S&S Computing [the makers of SewArt] that their products run well with VMWare Fusion® and Parallels Desktop for MAC®.
All S&S Computing software will run on 32- and 64-bit Windows OS. To determine which bit size your OS is, go to Start->Help and type "System Information" (in Windows 8, in Tile view, just type "System Information").
Note to all MAC users: We have had some users have compatibilty problems with our Embroidery Designs, so please download these files - click here - and test them to ensure that you will be able to use our files. If you have Boot Camp [or another similar program], you should be able to boot into Windows and download the files without a problem.
I like the fact that it has an editor built into it, but the only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the editor doesn't work as well as Adobe Photoshop. SewArt takes either too much or too little off when I'm using the eraser feature and can be frustrating. I use it mostly to run my scanned images through and make them more workable for Photoshop. Once I finish editing in Photoshop, I run it back through SewArt to create my file for my embroidery machine. Sometimes I have to digitize an image more than once, as some parts of it don't show up when I sew it out. I'm still trying to overcome that issue. The software doesn't have the ability that I know of to change the order of the stitching. I prefer to program my outlining for last.

worth the money. very cheap compared to some other programs and very very easy compared to others I have tried. the demo is very good and doesnt seem to hold anything from you to try for the 30 day trial so you can really test it all! I have singer futura xl 400 and the software is easier than the autherized singer software. I returned the singer software becasue it was a pain and twice as expensive. if you have photoshop it helps, its not required but makes it easier to clean up pictures before using sewart64. will convert to so many readable formats for machines (borther, singer, janome, etc.)I see no negatives. I have owned it for a few months now and I use it for my machines every 3 days if not then everyday. it is a pleasure!

Purchased this program because a customer asked me to stitch a logo that was in vector. Have only had the program for a week but it has been very easy to understand (so far) on my own. There is a tutorial on web that is very helpful. So far I really like this and feel I will use it quite a bit.
