MiniStitch
NEW! - The simplest cross stitch software.

For Mac OSX, Windows, and also
Linux!


No ads, no banners, no in-app purchases , no subscription, and no nagging to upgrade.

What is MiniStitch?


MiniStitch is the latest software product from Ursa Software, makers of the popular WinStitch and MacStitch cross stitch design products for Windows and Mac machines.

Unlike these advanced products, MiniStitch has been designed to offer the
simplest cross stitch experience possible for your computer.
Based on our long experience of cross stitch design in the home, we know that the regular addition of feature after feature to the professional products, can also lead to a situation where the newcomer can easily feel out of their depth by the array of choices, buttons, menus, and preferences.

So MiniStitch is the simplest to use software for cross stitch that you can get.
It's true: we now offer free cross stitch software, and cross stitch software for Linux.
(Which you DON'T need a compiler to use!)

MiniStitch is supplied as-is and is intended for home use.
If you need a specific feature and it is not described in the manual (see below), or if you wish to create charts for sale, please consider our bigger apps WinStitch and MacStitch which have tools designed to aid you in this.
