About Stitch ERA Liberty

DETAILS >>> Stitch ERA Liberty offers you the most complete and innovative set of tools. Its features will let you create new designs quick and easy, combining automated functions with those who allow you to have precise control over each design element.
  • - Developed for the most demanding designer: powerful and very productive. Even with that power, the easy way to use makes it suitable for every embroiderer that wants to make designs by themselves, who after doing an entertained apprenticeship, will achieve works so impressing as if were made by experts.

  • - Integrates in the same application, the functionality of embroidery with the functionality of graphic applications. For example, it can work perfectly with pixel (raster) or vector files, vectorizing the pixel file to get vector shapes, creating new vector shapes and processing them individually or by blocks (modifying shapes, nodes, combining, etc.) and then using them in the embroidery object creation. All this, without getting out of this unique application.

  • - Allows you to create new components, when you want to improve your design productivity and at the same time, extend the number of software resources. All is included in Stitch ERA Liberty. You will need no other separate applications to create and/or process embroidery designs: modify and process pre-existing expanded designs (edition, scaling, merging, etc.), lettering system, object design, with the most complete set of tools and stitch types, raster images, vector images, image processing and converting, automatic digitizing, manual digitizing, interactive digitizing, format conversion, component creation, design management, catalog printout, etc.

  • - Designs created with Stitch ERA Liberty are ready to run on most home embroidery and professional machines.

  • - Includes more synchronized views that present the details of the work under way visually and with a more detailed level. Grouping, branching, sequencing and other advanced functions can be executed by simply dragging elements.

  • - New Capture / Digitizing modes Completing the set of tools for the automatic and traditional digitizing, Stitch ERA Liberty includes interactive functions for the capture that allow to speed up the process at the same time that the design can be adjusted to the expected result.

  • - Productivity Improvement Stitch ERA Liberty has numerous functions to re-use the work done. Among them, the stitch pre-definition, embroidery repetitions in combinations, automatic outlines on objects, etc.

  • - Component Creation Stitch ERA Liberty also allows you to create new components for its later re-use and system resource library expansion, between these: manual patterns, creative patterns, programmable stitches, etc.

  • - Maximum Stitch Control The Object Inspector includes more adjustments for the precise definition of each section. Also includes new stitch effects (density variation, edge modulation, and so many more). All the properties of each object can be specified precisely.

Stitch ERA Liberty includes the following stitch types

  • - Paths with Running Stitch, E Stitch, Programmable Stitches, etc.

  • - Columns with ZigZag, E Stitch, Elastic Pattern, Elastic Programmable Stitches, etc.

  • - Areas with Uniform and Creative Patterns, Programmable Stitches, ZigZag, E Stitch, Elastic Pattern, Elastic Programmable Stitches, Appliqué, Textures, Photo Stitches, etc.

Important Notes:

While there are customers using Sierra software on Macs using Windows emulation software like Bootcamp, SIERRA DOES NOT OFFER SUPPORT FOR MACINTOSH USERS.

Stitch ERA Universal is a lighter version of an embroidery software, this is different than Libery which is more robust. SEU Universal is offered in a free downloadable trail and subscription services.
