Embird Cross Stitch allows user to digitize cross stitch designs with up to 400 x 400 crosses. Number of colors is limited to 254. Cross Stitch plug-in is installed together with Embird, no additional download or installation needed. However, you will have to purchase and register Cross Stitch separately from main Embird program, otherwise there is a stitch limit for every design you create. After purchase and insertion of registration password, evaluation version turns into full version. Use "Editor -> Insert -> Cross Stitch Design" command to access Cross Stitch.

Pattern created in Embird Cross Stitch There are two ways of creating designs in the Cross Stitch software:
  1. Design is created manually by drawing dots (crosses) either on a blank background or on an image (template, scanned chart).
  2. Design is created automatically (autodigitizing) from imported background image.

In both cases, program automatically generates stitches in crosses and arranges them to optimize the sewing process. It is possible to import the scanned chart (hand graph) and calibrate it properly to fit the background of work area, then manually draw the dots (crosses) using the chart in the background and finally compile the design into stitches.

Detail of cross stitch work space
Many editing tools are available for creation and adjustment of designs: marquee, lasso, magic wand, zoom lens, eye dropper, smooth, pencil, brush, air-brush, text, line, simple curve, rectangle, round rectangle, ellipse, star, regular polygon, fill area, clear area, etc. The pre-defined fill patterns are available, and user can even create his/her own fill patterns. There are also some special functions like 'Clear isolated points' or ' thin lines' and 'Smooth' parts by adding quarter crosses to corners, which allow user to clear and optimize the cross stitch design. The order in which the colors are sewn can be prescribed.
