SewArt Features and Information

SewArt (SA) is an embroidery digitizer for converting raster image files (*.jpg/*.png, etc), vector images (*.svg, *.emf), and clipart into embroidery file formats. Image processing tools and a step-by-step wizard are provided to produce an image suitable for yielding a high-quality embroidery stitch-out.





The DOWNLOAD button above is for the DEMO and RETAIL version - they are the same - so you only need to install once!

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, Tajima (c) *.dst, Janome (c) *.jef, Melco (c) *.exp, Viking(c) *.hus New Pfaff (c) *.vip, Viking SE (c) *.vp3, and Singer (c) *.xxx (these may be converted by SewWhat-Pro, or other embroidery editors, to a 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

Q Is an Internet connection needed to run the software?

A The Demo does not require an Internet connection. However, the licensed (retail) version requires Internet access to register the software. Once the software is registered, Internet access is required – at least temporarily for the first several usages of the software – to verify the registration. After that, the software can be run entirely offline (without Internet access) if necessary. Internet access is, however, desirable to receive timely update information and download updates.

Demo Limitation:

  1. This is a demo version and intended to show what the software is capable of doing
  2. Demo is limited to 3 colors - but you can use the Palette tool, set it to 4 colors (including the background), to sew out the entire image

Getting Started

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.

For simple, clean images the conversion process can take 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.

SewArt offers support for some languages other than English. To use this language support, download the appropriate language file(s) from the links below and save it in your S &S Computing/SewArt folder. Open SewArt and click the Options menu item Language Support and choose the desired language there.

    Gutes Programm

    Posted by Isolde Rlhrer on 4th Jan 2024

    Das Programm finde ich sehr gut Gutes Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis. Was mich traurig macht ist, dass es keine Deutsche Anleitung gibt, ich muss mir alles mühsam übersetzen und das nervt gewaltig. Schade.

    Translation: I find the program very good Good price-performance ratio. What makes me sad is that there are no German instructions, I have to translate everything laboriously and that's really annoying. Too bad.

    Stitch Types

    Posted by JM on 2nd Apr 2019

    Doesn't include Satin stitching so the stitch options don't fill that professionally. Not good for professional looking letters.

    SewArt helped my embroidering projects excel!

    Posted by Executive Edge, L.L.C. - Youngstown, OH on 7th Mar 2018

    Embroidering is new to my business and I needed software to help me create stitching patterns for existing .jpg and .png files. This software has proven to be affordable and just right for my business needs.

    Must have Digitizing Software. Easy to use.

    Posted by Tom. Ontario Canada. on 13th Jan 2018

    I am new to machine embroidery. I have used picture editing software before. A software I used to clean up pictures to import is InPixio Photo cut 7. I have done one complicated logo. I did the free trial before buying. I watched the beginner video first. The video hit on important parts to look for when using SewArt and embroidering. I imported the picture file, use the wizard and I was ready to embroider. Very easy and not complicated software to use.
    I recommend this software to anyone wanting to make their own patterns.
    Now I need to learn to work Cricut Explore Air. SewArt is going to help me there.
    Thank you for making SewArt available.

    Disappointed in the design it produced. Many stops and starts and keeps causing bobbin trouble.

    Note from Angie @ AKDesigns Boutique:
    I’m so sorry that you’ve struggled. There is a learning curve to figure out all of the features and and how everything works together to create a design, so give yourself some time to watch tutorials and refer to the manual as needed. SewArt is a digitizing program that creates embroidery files from images – the files it creates are a direct result of the choices you make during the digitizing process. For instance, if the image is cleaned up poorly during the wizard process, the design will suffer, or if the wrong stitch types or parameters are selected during the stitch image process, the design will suffer, or if you use auto-sew for a complicated image, the design will suffer. Another tip: make sure to open the file you create in an editor [like SewWhat-Pro or Basic Embird] before stitching to avoid unnecessary heartache. I hope this helps!
