From Reen of Embroidery Garden
We asked a few embroidery bloggers and influencers to participate in an opportunity where they would download the app on their own embroidery machine and write about their experience. Reen, an embroidery designer and blogger from Embroidery Garden was the first to write about her experience.
“I recently had the opportunity to review Janome’s new app, AcuDesign.
It’s a powerful machine embroidery app for an iPad or iPhone. It’s available in iTunes App store.
This app isn’t just for Janome machines. It works with several formats and hoops.
Some of the features of AcuDesign include the ability to import all of your machine embroidery designs (via dropbox) and organize, edit, convert, save and export them.
You have the ability to load designs to certain machines wirelessly through various devices.
Organize the designs you already have, ones you can purchase from the app store and the 500 free designs that you can download into folders.
Thumbnails are generated of your designs. You can also use the search feature to find a design you are looking for and then create a PDF of the design that has info regarding thread colors, size, etc.
The editing features of the app are impressive. You can add stops, change colors, resize, remove parts of designs, change hoop sizes, change the order of the design, etc. Several thread palettes are included and a stitch simulator will show you exactly how a design will stitch.
It’s one of the best machine embroidery apps I’ve seen. The app is $49.99. Go to the App Store on your iPad or iPhone and search for AcuDesign.”
