Hotfix Era Rhinestone Design Software has really taken the market by storm in the last 12 months. Originally, Hotfix Era was available only for higher end Hotfix rhinestone setting machines, like the CAMS Machine by Coldesi, but now has opened up to the cutter market. This means that just about any plotter or cutter on the market that has a Windows driver or accepts a .plt file can be turned into a rhinestone template machine.
Hotfix Era is a standalone software package that can be purchased separately for use with existing equipment or as part of a hardware bundle, like with Colman and Company’s Brush n Bake, which includes a cutter, or new Brush n Bake –NC, which just give you the software and start up supplies.

Stitch Era Liberty
Stitch Era is powerful digitizing software for use on professional/commercial embroidery systems. It’s incredibly easy to use, especially if you already have some embroidery background, but is also one of the most powerful applications on the market.
Stitch Era Liberty vs. Stitch Era Universal (SEU)
Don’t confuse Sierra’s Stitch Era Liberty (SEL) with Stitch Era Universal, the free version of the software. There are important differences between the products! Here are some of the features that Liberty has and Universal does not:
But the most important difference is that Stitch Era Universal, the free version, won’t be around forever! Get started with Stitch Era Liberty and get a clear upgrade path, great available support and step firmly into the world of commercial embroidery.
Design Era – Get the BEST of Both Worlds
One thing that Sierra brings to the apparel decorating business that is both unique and provides a great revenue generating opportunity is Design Era.
Design Era is a combination of both the Hotfix Era and Stitch Era Liberty software applications. You can do your embroidery AND rhinestone designs from a single interface! This is the perfect system for doing mixed media products, like an embroidered CHEER team logo with the cheerleaders’ name in rhinestones, or a women’s bowling league jersey with embroidered names surrounded by bling.. the possibilities are endless.
Being able to increase your revenue by combining rhinestone and embroidery designs is a real advantage to the Design Era bundle, but there are others too:
Adding Hotfix to Liberty and Liberty to Hotfix – or Creating Design Era
Both Hotfix Era and Stitch Era Liberty come with hardware “keys” or “dongles”. These are USB sticks that contain your registration information and MUST be plugged in whenever you work with either application.
But you CANNOT have 2 Sierra “keys” on one computer at any time. Neither Sierra application will work.
When you buy Design Era, you get Hotfix and Liberty together, registered to one “key”. But if you buy one or the other first and add the second application you must purchase an add-on copy, which is registered differently than the full version. Lucky for you, it’s cheaper too!
If you already have Hotfix Era or Liberty and would like to add the other application, simply contact ColDesi for help. They will work with Sierra in getting your new password and “key” upgrade to match.
