Ratings and Reviews


Love the app!!!

The app is a wonderful tool, the major problem is even though I have an IPhone 6 Plus, the photos are hard to see. I'm thinking that it's the framing around everything. I like the updates they are great! Much better now, please do something with the frames around each photo. Also would be great if needle sizes & information was somewhere. Thank you so much for all the hard work!!


Amazing Embroidery app

What a wonderful embroidery app. Such an easy to use layout with clear thorough instructions that even a beginner like me can follow. I've just started my first project and I'm hooked. I recommend this app for anyone who wants to try embroidery or wants a good reference guide.
