StitchBuddy 3.3.4 - Public Beta


Today macOS 15 "Sequoia" has started its public beta phase, and StitchBuddy for Mac is joining…


StitchBuddy 3.3.2 - Minor fixes

I just released StitchBuddy 3.3.2 (macOS), addressing some minor bugs and improvements:

  • Rulers are indicating dragged mouse positions
  • Context menu item to close all open subpaths
  • Open subpaths are handled when filling shapes
  • SVG paths with identical start / end points are closed
  • Feedback if no SVG path was imported
  • Quick Look plugin is reflecting thread numbers

The new version will be distributed in waves and automatically updates your Mac (depending on its system settings). And you can manually install it from Apple's Mac App Store at any time.

Spring cleaning

Both StitchBuddy apps have been recently updated: StitchBuddy HD 3.3 takes mobile embroidery file management to the next level. Please check out the corresponding video tutorial and learn about new possibilities, e.g. direct access to USB pen drives, so you can transfer designs to your embroidery machine with your iPhone or iPad. I have decided to increase the pricing of "StitchBuddy Pro" on iOS to USD 19.99, reflecting these new capabilities. It's the first price increase for over ten years, and of course all existing customers will keep their license as is.

StitchBuddy 3.2.6 (macOS) comes only with a minor improvement, and in addition I fixed a long-lasting bug in CraftSale (an inventory app especially for people selling textiles at markets or fairs).

Enjoy a wonderful spring 2024!

StitchBuddy HD 3.3 - Public Beta


StitchBuddy HD for iPad / iPhone is entering its beta phase, introducing enhanced file management capabilities and a fresh user interface


StitchBuddy HD 3.2.5 released

I just released a new update of StitchBuddy HD (for iPhone / iPad): Version 2.3.5 will mostly catch up with recent core additions and corrections which were already incorporated into StitchBuddy for Mac:

  • Gunold Poly thread chart added
  • Reading VP3 designs fixed
  • Janome RE36b hoop orientation corrected
  • Icon preview of EXP designs added
The last one is extremely important as a redesigned StitchBuddy HD - as mentioned in this forum discussion - would rely on iOS capabilities for gallery thumbnails. Melco EXP designs were unsupported due to a conflicting file extensions (which is already claimed by some Apple system files). I was able to fix it at least for thumbnails (previews are still not supported).

Don't hesitate to contact me (or reply to this discussion) if any unforeseen issue occurs
