Diamond Painting

Diamond Painting is a great new way of working.
Plastic 'beads' are available (usually 1/10 inch in size), in common DMC shades.
Design or import a picture using shades based on DMC (use 'Diamonds.threads') , and you can view and print at 1/10 inch sizes onto paper, ready to have adhesive applied.
Then stick the beads over the printed design and Voila!
All of our software can print at 1/10inch - MacStitch and WinStitch have dedicated output for diamond work.

iPad & iPhone

MobiStitch is designed to be a simple app for use on the go, allowing you to create small hand-drawn charts, or import pictures and clipart and turn them into cross stitch.
It can be considered as a low-cost companion app to our desktop products, (rather than a replacement for them), since our desktop products have a great many more features.

In MobiStitch:
  • You can add/remove colors.
  • Draw in full, half, and backstitches.
  • Draw filled ovals and rectangles, and fill areas with color.
  • You can flip areas, copy, and paste.
  • View in a variety of styles.
  • Markup your work
  • Export the result as a chart file that can be opened on your laptop or desktop programs, where they can be printed or converted into PDF files


XStitch Markup


Markup is a FREE app (No ads, no banners, no in-app purchases and no nagging to upgrade.)
Not a designing app.. this will allow you to 'stitch on the move'.. you can open MacStitch and WinStitch charts (and PCStitch charts up to version 7), and mark them up on screen instead of working from paper.

Field Archery
We also have an inexpensive and simple app for iPhones, to score 'Big Game' field archery.
