SWP, SewArt & SewWrite Comparison

SWP, SewArt, and SewWrite Comparison

Please Read First ~ This document is not meant to replace your research of each embroidery software option that is available to you. This is just a quick list meant to help with determining which software program might best fit your needs now and in the future.  The list of features provided is not a full list of features for any of the embroidery programs.

SewWhat-Pro is an embroidery software program that is primarily used to combine, edit, and resize purchased designs [designs purchased on the internet - like mine, and your local sewing center].

SewArt is a digitizing software program for converting clipart or other forms of raster and vector images into an embroidery file. Image processing tools and a step-by-step wizard are provided to produce an image suitable for yielding a high-quality embroidery stitch-out.

SewWrite is a lettering and monogramming software that is used to primarily to build names and monograms using the built-in alphabets. One of the great things about this program is that they made it so that the letters can be made almost any size [small to large] - this makes it very versatile.  At the same time, you are limited to the fonts that they include - they have a lot of nice fonts and basic fonts, but certainly not everything you will ever want or need.

Recommendation: Most of my customers don’t get one program or another, they get all that they need because they are very different programs with very different features and they complement each other.
