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.

    Easy to use, great results

    Posted by Enio on 3rd Sep 2017

    I found SewArt when searching online for software and tips to help me to create designs to my recently purchased Brother. Just in few minutes I was able to create my first design, even without reading the manual.

    I got SewArt as a neophyte Brother machine embroiderer wanting to create designs that are not readily available. Without utilizing the manual I have been able to do just that. So far I have been unable to adjust the size of the PES file on the NQ1400e more than a few mm. Not sure f this is me or the program. This necessitates the use of SewArt to create a different size design from the TIF file created by this program.

    easy to learn

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Apr 2017

    We were paying for digitizing services. Since purchasing this program we have thus far been able to fulfill our clients needs in house saving us and them the extra cost for digitizing.

    New to machine embroidery

    Posted by Jeanette Griffiths on 8th Apr 2017

    I am new to machine embroidery and especially digitizing. I purchased the software for my new machine but found it too be basic having been a laser engraver for a few years. The Sewart programme is excellent easy to use and the final results are a true and clear image of the original images.
    Awesome. I did the free trial before buying. YouTube was where I found the product. Thanks

    Was really a skeptic about getting this because price is low. But I was blown away within minutes I had a digitized picture of my baby. A digitized pic from Internet that I could change colors and make it my own. Best program for me so excited now. I even digitized my logo.

    Great Program!

    Posted by Caitlin on 15th Feb 2017

    I absolutely LOVE this program! There's definitely a learning curve but, as with anything, if you're patience and willing to put aside a little bit of time to learn, it's totally worth it and you won't be disappointed! I did the free trial first and after a week purchased the full program because I knew I would be using it all the time! It's been less than a week and I've already embroidered three different designs that I've made. If you're looking for an embroidery program, I strongly encourage you to check out this product!

    could be better

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Sep 2016

    having trouble with many designs. Program does too many jumps and does not fill properly. reducing colors is very confusing and leaves out important parts of the design. and I don't like the order it places the outline in

    Message from Angie - AKDesigns Boutique Owner:
    There is a learning curve to learn how to digitize, so be patient, read the manual and watch videos to help learn more quickly - you'll get it!

    Great embroidery software

    Posted by Carolyn Lancaster on 28th Aug 2016

    I really enjoyed using this program. It has made simple patterns so easy to make. The only problem I have is I still haven't been able to get it to take the registration code. I have Uninstaller it and downloaded it again and still can't get it to register. So have not been able to use. But I love the program and would give it 5 stars if it weren't for the registration problem.

    Note from Angie, Owner of AKDesigns Boutique:
    Hi Carolyn,
    Thanks for your wonderful feedback! Remember that you can e-mail us at or call us [# is on top of every page on website] if you have questions about your order. I've sent you an e-mail to help you troubleshoot why the serial number isn't being accepted. 99% of the time it is because it is being typed incorrectly, so copying and pasting the user name and serial number is the best method.
