SewWhat-Pro Embroidery Software (about & features)

SewWhat-Pro is software for viewing, editing and converting embroidery files arising from various different sewing manufacturers. It includes all the features available in the SewWhat! editor, plus various additional Integrated Project Management features (see the description of SewWhat-Pro features below). A plugin is available from myriaCross (see features list below) for converting Cross-Stitch files to embroidery files. You may download the User Manual - click here - for more details about the many features available in SewWhat-Pro.We [AKDesigns Boutique] also made this short tutorial to make it easier to perform some of the most basic and popular features of SewWhat Pro ~ SewWhat Pro User Guide. To download SewWhat-Pro, or to make an online purchase, please see information above.

SewWhat-Pro has been tested in the Softpedia labs using several industry-leading security solutions and found to be completely clean of adware/spyware components.

Advanced Features in SewWhat-Pro

  • Cutting toolbar allows graphic separation of patterns at specific stitches
  • Density adjustment dialog to resize a pattern at constant density
  • Graphical or text-based reordering of thread color stops is available
  • Capability to write Smart Media or Compact Flash cards for Singer, Brother, Janome, and new Bernina machines
  • Converts Cross Stitch patterns to embroidery files using a "plugin" from myriaCross (MC). You may download the DEMO, or purchase the MC plugin for SewWhat-Pro, here. Once the plugin is installed, it becomes seamlessly integrated into the SewWhat-Pro workspace and can be used to preview and convert a variety of different Cross-stitch formats. NOTE: If installing the plugin on a 64-bit computer, be sure to use the 64-bit version of SewWhat-Pro. After updating to Windows 8/8.1, if the plugin stops working, simply uninstall and reinstall to reactive it.
  • Supports a command-line interface for file conversion which has the form:

                           SewWhat-Pro.exe file1.ext1 file2.ext2 /c
                  (be sure to put file names or paths with blanks inside quotes)

Integrated Project Management Features of SewWhat-Pro

  • Includes an editable table for entering project information
  • Easily editable list of thread colors and manufacturer brands
  • Capability to read/write thread color "txt" files for single/multiple projects
  • Thread palettes from over 15 manufacturers are available  
  • Customizable user-defined thread palettes can be easily added

File Types Supported by SewWhat-Pro (most also available in SewWhat!)
Convert From = Open and Convert To = Save As

SewWhat-Pro Workspace
The SewWhat-Pro workspace is very similar to the one that is used by SewWhat! The two main differences are (1) there are additional toolbar buttons (for cutting patterns, adjusting thread density, and writing to Smart Media cards); and the Project Pane at the right of the screen includes new Project Management features (see the figure below).

All CDs contain both 32- and 64-bit versions of the software.


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).

Download Error Message Help

Error Message: "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.  Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

Solution: This happens sometimes after Windows does an update. Just UNINSTALL SewWhat-Pro from Control Panel and then install SWP again from above. You should not have to re-enter any registration information.

System Requirements for S&S Computing Software Products

All S & S Computing products are native Windows® applications. They 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 us that our products run well with VMWare Fusion® and Parallels Desktop for MAC®.

The 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").

  1. A must have 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Apr 2015

    Love it

  2. In process of learning 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2015

    I downloaded the free version, which I enjoyed it having the wizard. Been having trouble with sew art pro not recognizing the file, saying it could corrupt. Funny it downloaded perfectly in the demo version. This is why I haven't given it 5 stars yet, will have to see if it is Pro or operator problems.

    Note from Angie @ AKDesigns Boutique:
    The purchased version and demo are exactly the same [literally the same download] and work the same, so I hope you are able to figure it out. I would reach out to you if I had your name, but you can contact either me or S&S Computing for support at any time.

  3. Awesome Software 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Dec 2014

    I Love this software. It was easy to figure out and great to use!!

  4. Where have you been all my life? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2014

    I am enjoying SWP so much. I was paying a monthly fee to use about 12 fonts when I wanted words. Now I not only can do it myself, I have all their fonts and all mine to play with! I haven't gotten into design manipulation yet but I'm practicing it all and enjoying what I learn.56

  5. It beats Embird and husqvarna !! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2014

    This is the first embrodiery software that doesnt cost a leg and a arm!! AND it will load to a 64 bit laptop!It`s easy to use. It lets me edit my designs and add or take away things .I really like it.For me it was worth buying.It is much better than the competition.
    I`m a happy customer!!!

  6. Trying to learn!!!! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Nov 2014

    Just purchase but I haven't been able to use it yet. I am having problem with figuring out the media writer. Cant get it to send to my machine. But I'm sure I will get it. I probably am just over looking something.:(

    Note from AKDesigns Boutique:
    The user manual is a great help with anything you can't figure out. It's located on the product page and on the Helpful Tips & Docs page. I hope this helps!

  7. It's great. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2014

    Just purchased it and have much to learn. I'm finding the 4 x 4 hoop is not large enough to complete some of my designs. I created one file for a design, then created another file for lettering because of the size of the hoop my machine accommodates. Creating and coordinating two files on one garment is an art form. There is probably a better technique for this project -- I'm learning. I'm a very happy customer.

  8. LOVE IT 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2014

    I recently purchased Sew What Pro and love it. I have a more expensive software but Sew What Pro is so user friendly. I still have a lot to learn but was merging designs within the first 5 minutes. It's worth every penny and I recommend it to anyone who needs a program to merge their designs.

  9. great 5 Star Review

    good and easy! was always afraid to be intimidated with this kind of program. But this is great. AND great price too

    Posted by on 29th May 2014

    I first downloaded the demo and then purchased it! If you just try it, you will be hooked! Very easy to use even for someone computer challenged. It makes merging and viewiing files very easy. I'm so glad I purchased it!!

  11. SewWhat-Pro - Excellet product, many features 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2014

    I have several other embroidery editing programs, but I want a simple little program to change colors in segments of PES. Boy was I surprised SWP has that feature plus it is really a robust piece of software with many if not all of the tools my more expensive programs have. This is a real deal at $65. Try it you'll like it.

  12. For the love of sewing 5 Star Review

  18. a great buy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2014

    Compared to other prices out there, this seems to be well worth the money. I haven't used it to the extent it can be used. Need more time to learn it. I do find it easy to use with downloadable font and appliques. It stitches out very well.

  19. A great buy 5 Star Review

  20. Great software for the price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2014

    I just got my embroidery machine for Christmas and this software is so easy to use. I used the trial version until I used up the saves. I am very pleased so far. I wanted a program to merge letters to make monograms or add names to existing designs. This program works great!

  21. great product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2013

    I started off with the most basic embroidery software before I purchased this. I am Amazed with how superior this is compared to many trials I have done with other software and a much better price. So easily accessible, quick to learn and so many options for beautiful embroidery.

  24. Great Program!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2013

    I still have alot of playing to do but so far I am loving it. Installed great and has the features I was looking for. Almost bought a different program, glad I found this one and went with it.

  25. after using 2 other programs - this is my FAV 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Dec 2013

    I have been embroidering for about 8 years. I first learned on Explorations by OESD for my Bernina - and it was fine. I then purchased a Brother 6 needle 2 years ago and started using PE Design - which is AWFUL. I read some online posts about this and I LOVE IT. I first downloaded the trail and quickly used all my 'free' saves :) I have no desire to digitize - there are so many fabulous designs out there all I want to do is manipulate them and add lettering - and this program is perfect for that. Lets you use your computers TTF's, and it has a genius way of merging your PES fonts. I am very happy with it ! Awesome customer service with it too !

  26. still very new 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2013

    I have only begun to actually do something with the product. So far I have been able to make changes on the computer that I'm happy with, but I haven't stitched them out. When I do I will have a better idea of the value I will place on this program. I'm looking forward to finding out how much it will improve my embroidery experiences!

  27. So Far So Good 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Nov 2013

    I've used the program twice so far and it worked as expected. I am still learning the program. For the money it seems to be a good value.

  28. easy to use 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2013

    I downloaded the trial to see if I would use the software before I bought it. I found it fairly easy to use with a little help from the manual. I used it to adjust the designs without any problems. I still am not sure about some of the icons, but will need to study the manual more. The online manual is very helpful. I also joined the sewwhat pro blog which is supper helpful. I liked the software so much I purchased the software. It downloaded fine on my Vista.

  29. Good product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Sep 2013

    For the price this is a good starting out editing program. Thank you!

  30. Great program, great price 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Sep 2013

    Sew What Pro is probably the best quality program you can buy at this price point. I think it is easier to use and just as competent as some of the more expensive programs available, too. AK has one of the best prices around!

  31. Best Software EVER! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2013

    I have been shopping for embroidery software for weeks and after hearing the rave reviews for Sew What-Pro I decided to try it. I download the trial version before purchasing and knew right away that I could not live without it. It has opened up a new world for my embroidery projects. I am having the BEST time learning new techniques and have created AMAZING merged projects. This is a must have!

  32. good software program 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2013

    Good software program

  33. must have! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2013

    This is an amazing program!I am new to machine embroidery and didn't really understand why I would need one of these programs so I downloaded the free trial. I knew within a few hours of use that I didn't want to be without it. It does so much and is the most affordable one I've seen!I am considering trying some of the other Sew What programs to see what they do!

  34. Enjoys SewWhatPRO 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2013

    I first downloaded the 30 day trial of SewWhatPro & used it the best that I could. I also researched online other embroidery software. I chose SewWhatPro based on price, ease & support. Everytime I emailed AK Designs a question I was quickly answered. This greatly influenced my choice. I'm still learning & having fun.

  35. Loving Sew What Pro! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2013

    Wonderful fonts and easy to use!

  36. Excellent customer service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2013

    I am new to embroidery applique and monogramming but so far, Sew What Pro has made it easy. I did have one problem transferring to my machine but I emailed support and they quickly told me what step I was leaving out. They answered promptly and knew exactly how to help me.

  37. Good starter software 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2012

    I am new to embroidery & this is good basic software. My only complaint is that the program doesnt tell you the finished size of the total project. If the finish size is greater than your 5x7 hoop it will not show up on your machine. Sometimes I make multiple trips to the computer.
