While spending a few days in Florida during Christmas, I went into a quilt shop "Keeps Me in Stitches" in Tampa, FL. It was a small shop; however, they were a Janome distributor. I was able to find a foot I had been looking for, a new Creative Grids ruler (size I didn't have) and a package of bobbins. That was it! All for this shop. BUT WAIT.....while at the checkout counter, I looked up and saw this software. I have heard a lot about the Designers Gallery Software and became intrigued. The clerk began to share with me the things it would do. She was quite the salesman! I walked out with Studio III and SizeWorks. Now I wish I would have also bought the LetterWorks.
Studio III is a platform program that allows me to organize all of my many designs as well as color management. It will allow me to sort the color changes so I don't have to change thread so many times, and much more!
The Size Works will allow me to change design sizes proportionately with the correct density adjustment. I can reduce designs by 50% or enlarge them by 200%.
LetterWorks will allow me to add lettering to designs, etc. I'm thinking I really need this component -- LOL! Time will tell as I can always order it online.
I am very excited to learn this software. If you use this software, please comment and let me know your thoughts.
