But there is much more than just the utility stitches: create truly exiting embellishments with 133 decorative and 35 quilting stitches. Do you want to modify included stitches or create your own ones? Everything is possible with the Stitch Designer. Your individual stitch settings are temporarily saved, and you can store them in your personal memory for future projects.
