I have just released this new Celtic cross design digitized using SophieSew Version 2 and it comes in three sizes.Please click on this Celtic Cross 1 link for more information and download options… It’s Free !Thanks evreyone and enjoy.
Just updated my old, tired website and replaced it with this brand spanking new one. Its based around a WordPress blog with a custom theme ( hypax ) by themeforest. Took a while to build the page structure and graphics but its now much easier for me to add and update new content. The designs are a bit sparse and there’s no new software available yet but it is coming.
Thanks everyone and keep reading !
Ok … As this is my first blog entry I might as well start with a brief introduction about me and what I want to achieve .. so here goes. My name is John Coldwell ( aka Carlos Mandell ) and I’ve been developing embroidery design software in the guise of SophieSew for possibly ten years now. In this time I’ve learned a great deal about programming and programming languages as well as hopefully picking up some basic embroidey skills along the way. So why am I developing SophieSew. Well put simply, I enjoy programming and I love creating embroidery. Combining the two together has culminated in SophieSew Version 1 and the almost ready for beta release of SophieSew Version 2.
Anyone that likes to design their own machine embroidery for home or commercial use.
No… I will initially launch SophieSew in a series of beta’s culminating in a lite version that will remain free to use. At some point in the future I hope to release a Pro version which you can purchase for a modest amount.
OK this is a difficult question. Definitely outlines and running stitches. Probably zigzag, tatami and satin column stitches and possibly short stitching ( required for the sharp cornering when digitizing text lettering ).
Cannot give an exact date. But It will be soon. I have a YouTube channel under the name John Coldwell that has my current Version 2 tutorials to date. I have a few more to add and I’m debugging the software as I go. View these and you’l see the software is at an advanced stage.
Ok so to recap then … With this blog then I hope to document the continuing up’s and down’s of the odessy that is SophieSew. Please feel free to use the comments section to ask any questions. I will envevour to answer as many as I can.
