What is it?

Embroidermodder is a free software tool that allows the user to add custom modifications to their embroidery designs.

This program was started by Mark Pontius in 2004, and is an ongoing development that is open to anyone who wishes to contribute. The program (and it's sourcecode) is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) as published by the Free Software Foundation.

Where to get it?

Right here at SourceForge

Download the latest version, either source files or Windows executable.


It doesn't do everything I want (YET!). But it is still useful for the unlimited scaling feature, adding text, as well as the ability to move stitches around or even hand edit every stitch using Excel before converting the file back to .DST to go back into your commercial software.
