DRAWstitch launches the new DRAWings® version 8

DRAWings® has been the first embroidery software to be fully integrated with a graphics designing software. Now, DRAWings® 8, goes one step beyond with the powerful combination of its new easy-to-use built-in designer and its ability to work seamlessly with a graphics software left intact! Create your own designs from scratch with far more ease, transform and edit shapes, add text, all in 3D designing mode.

Produce stunning designs with crystals/rhinestones easily that you can combine with embroidery or textile printing. 
Now every design can be your embroidery fill type that will fill in your new creations. The array fill will change the way you used to fill your embroidery designs The new automated monogramming tool together with the hundreds of decorative frames (Borders, Corners, Sides) will give you all you need to create your monogram designs. You can now use the software to create and cut your appliqué designs or any other material by connecting it directly with the most popular cutters in the market.

NOTE: DRAWings® 8 comes in one edition: the equivalent of the up to now known as “Professional Edition” of DRAWings software and reads all “.DRAW” files created from any previous version. 

All features and tools of the previous Professional Editions have remained intact in this new DRAWings® 8 version.


Ability to select from the start up wizard which techniques you will use to create the design you want. You can select from the following techniques: Cut, Embroidery, Crystals, Stencil and Paint. For example, if you want to create a design that will be cut at your cutter, you have to enable only the Cut technique. The software will filter the available tools and show you only those that can be used for your design.


With the Vector fill tool you can create beautiful designs by drawing over large Satin on Step filled shapes. Every curve you are drawing it is automatically converted to stitch penetration points in the shape below. Apply Array fill to a shape and fill it with a Vector fill object to create unique and complex effects on your Satin/Step filled designs. It also can be used for splitting wide Satin bars and avoid having too long satin stitches.


You can create designs that can be painted from your Cutter by switching the cutter blade with a brush or pen. There are different paint fill types that you can use and create unique designs. The Paint types that are available are the following: ZigZag, Fill, Row-fill Fill types, and Line, ZigZag Pen/outline types. Each type has its own parameters, which you can adjust according your preferences.


Create beautiful designs with stippling that you can use either for embroidery or quilting. It is very easy to use and adjust. Quilting was never easier.



You can now set the holding stitches to E-stitch or Zig-Zag and select the way the fabric will be trimmed from the Fabric trim option. A new feature to remove overlapped Applique is added. The Fabric trim option that you will select, will affect the way the applique design will be embroidered. The applique fabric can also be cut with your Cutter.


On each fill or pen type that is related to the cutter, cutter parameters are added. You can now adjust the following: Cutter presets  |  Cutter speed  |  Cutter pressure  |  Cutter passes  |  Blade depth  |  Blade color



Cut pen type allows you to create cut objects directly. For each cut object you can adjust the offset and the cutter parameters. Quilting is now easier than ever. Cut your fabrics easily in various shapes and create beautiful quilt projects.


You can now select a cutting mat for your cuts, in the same way you used to select a hoop for your embroideries. Adjust the design on the cutting mat and be accurate with with your creation.


You can now convert any open shape or line art shape to stencil. You can add stencil bridges through node editor and create beautiful stencil designs for any use.
