Embrilliance Essentials

Embrilliance Essentials


Mac and Windows versions both included!

Make embroidery easy!

There are some tasks that virtually all embroiderers want to do and those things should be easy, inexpensive, simple and intuitive!

We call these, "Essentials".

If you want to combine designs; form scenes with overlapping designs; re-size designs and recalculate stitches; add Multiple Lines of Lettering; add Monograms in many styles; change colors; print templates; change thread brands; convert formats; split for some multi-position hoops; look in Zips or simply watch your designs sew onscreen, then Essentials is for you!

Essentials has appliqué features that make it unique in the embroidery world. You can use an existing appliqué design and select position and material colors allowing the removal of hidden top-stitches in overlapping appliqués, while leaving the position and material runs unmodified. You can also use the position color to create a cutting file using our patent-pending technology. Brother ScanNCut, Silhouette Cameo, and other cutters can use the files Essentials creates.
