What is a Plug-in?

This plug-in will convert your EQ7 to EQStitch. But don't worry, EQStitch includes all the great features of EQ7, plus it's enhanced with a Stitching worktable that uses tools already familiar to you. This new worktable gives you the ability to digitize any EQ drawings for embroidery, machine applique or quilting.

Lettering & Monograms

EQStitch has a Text tool! The drawing tools on the Stitching worktable are identical to those on the Applique tab of the Block worktable except for the new Text tool! This makes lettering and monogramming so easy! Choose from ANY True-Type font on your computer to stitch out or cut for applique. Once the text is converted to patches, you can move, resize and rotate each letter for even more personalization.

Embroidery, Redwork & Quilting

Adorable designs, redwork and quilting stencils for all occasions! Use any of the 310 embroidery design in the library, or draw your own. Import photos for tracing to make drawing freehand a bit easier. Choose from 19 different fill styles, and adjust the angle and density to fit your design. Adjust the underlay settings to give your design stability. Easily add a Steil Stitch edge (similar to a satin stitch) to your design if you like. Or, for redwork and those special accents, use a Bean Stitch edge. There are so many options to play with!

Digitize and Export!

Creating your digitized file is easy! Draw your design, or edit one of the 500 designs (300+ embroidery and 200+ machine applique) in the library. Then choose the best fill, underlay and edge stitching for your design. Use the automatic sort threads tool before you write the file to eliminate unnecessary thread color changes when stitching. Watch a simulation of the stitching to see exactly how the design will stitch. Go back and make changes before exporting the file.

Machine Appliqué

Your friends will be impressed! Personalize anything by adding machine applique! Use your favorite fabrics and a Zigzag (similar to the embroidery Steil stitch, or a basic satin stitch) or an E-stitch (like blanket stitch) edge. It's fun and easy to see these designs come to life. Adjust the density settings of the Zigzag stitch for a looser edge, or try the E-stitch. This edge stitch adds some pizazz to your applique designs. Print templates for the applique, as well as the alignment pattern for the hoop. EQStitch includes over 200 machine applique designs in the library!

Standard and custom hoop sizes are available. Export the file for any of these machine types:

    Baby Lock/Brother (*.PES)
    Elna/Janome/Kenmore (*.SEW)
    Janome/Elna (*.JEF)
    Melco/Bernina (*.EXP)
    Pfaff (*.PCS)
    Singer (*.XXX)
    Tajima (*.DST)
    Viking (*.HUS)
    Viking D1 (*.SHV)
    Viking/Pfaff (*.VIP)
    Viking/Pfaff (*.VP3)

Embellish your Quilts

See your Stitchings on your quilts! There is no other product on the market that allows complete quilt design AND the ability to digitize embroidery and machine applique in one! Each time you save a stitching design, an embellishment gets added to your Sketchbook as well. Embellishments are used on Layer 3 of your quilt layout for positioning your design. If your embellishment looks too small for your quilt, go back to the Stitching worktable, adjust the size of the design (including the hoop size most likely) and Add to Sketchbook again. A NEW embellishment of the right size will be ready for you to use on your quilt.
