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.  I prefer to work with SVG's because they don't require as much, if any editing.

Just click the buy now option and you will get a reciept from via paypal.  I will then send your request to S&S computing and they will send you your Registration Code (aka serial number).

I'm really excited about this because I really love the software and you know you are buying from someone you can reach easily for questions. SewArt is constantly evolving into a more user friendly program that can help you with a wide range of digitizing desires.

*Note: SewArt is not set up to do lettering or variable sized satin stitching at this time.

  • 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-Proor 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

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.
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.

  1. when I reopen a saved file, all my input information is gone.
    I bring it up as a tif. file and it comes up all black in color and no stitch information

    Is there something I have failed to do.
    It was saved as a tif. and a jef. When I went to my file to adjust something all my information
    is gone.

  2. Hi Jeannette, I have had the same trouble with Tif's as well. If you can save it as a png, jpeg, or better yet an svg you'll have better success.
