NOTE: Embrilliance Essentials does not create new embroidery files using existing graphics files like JPG or SVG; Creating new embroidery designs requires a different Embrilliance platform program.
Every embroiderer needs the tools to make basic changes and additions to their embroidery designs. These elementary alterations should be easy and fun to do, but without capable software they can be difficult. That's why we made Essentials, to give everyone access to tools that work and make embroidery fun again. With Embrilliance Essentials, you can merge, resize (recalculate stitches) remove overlaps, colorize, print templates, add lettering, and so much more.
