Key Features

We believe that every embroiderer needs basic tools to view, manage, and customize their embroidery designs. Those tools should be fast to learn and shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. They should work with the computer you prefer, whether it’s a Mac or a PC with Windows 10. Embroidery software should be easy, fun, and useful for every embroiderer.

Welcome to Essentials 2020 2

An embroiderer friend once explained the tools they needed most in their embroidery software; and we listened. When more and more people agreed, it occurred to us that some tools are really essential to every embroiderer. Other programs may have them, but include excessive add-ons, throwing in everything including the kitchen sink and charging you accordingly. We take just what embroiderers need most and pack them one simple, inexpensive program; that’s Embrilliance Essentials.

What are the “Essentials?”

With Embrilliance Essentials installed on your Mac or Windows computer, you can:


This border repeat design went from 9 colors to 3!
  • Undo changes as you work, with many levels of ‘Undo’
  • Fit designs to your hoop with stitch recalculation.
  • Align and Distribute elements in your embroidery design.
  • Add basting stitches to embroidery designs.
  • Use our special self-modifying designs, and try out a few that come with the program! These designs calculate their stitches as you play with them for super results!
  • Use special template files that allow for text in envelopes and on pre-drawn baseline shapes.
Word Art / Text Shape Envelope Tool available only in Embrilliance Embroidery Software
These free envelopes from our Project Blog add powerful styling to your lettering!
  • Manage your embroidery thread collection, including marking ones you own, including quick and easy import from CSV spreadsheet files.
  • Create Designer 1 floppy disks and USB sticks
  • Wirelessly send designs to Brother and Baby Lock machines.
  • Directly access your imported fonts and libraries for easy transfer between computers.
View, select, and insert designs into your working file!

Some companies charge more than this for a program that only does resizing of embroidery designs. With Essentials, sizing with stitch recalculation is included! You can re-size embroidery designs down to 50% and up to 250% of their original size!


Colorize your embroidery designs! In a couple clicks, you can convert an entire design to your favorite thread brand. Want to change colors in a design one-by-one? Do you have a DST file without colors and want to see what it looks like in color and save a new file? No problem! We’ve got you covered. Er, colored! You can even create your own custom palette manually or by importing a formatted CSV file, but if you don’t see your thread brand in the software, we’ll add it for you! Send us a link to your brand’s color info and we’ll include it in future releases of the Embrilliance Platform.

One-click conversion to your favorite thread brand.


Embrilliance Essentials has applique features that make it unique in the embroidery world. You can use an existing applique design and select position and material colors allowing the removal of hidden top-stitches in overlapping appliques, 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.



Create applique cut files from stitch file placement lines!


We all know there are other programs to do embroidery; some have great features, and some even have great prices. Sadly, features you’re told you’ll love are the ones you rarely use and when you want to do a simple task, it isn’t easy. Often, products have no dedicated community and help is haphazard. Worse, the inexpensive web-only software isn’t supported by your local dealer.

Embrilliance is here to fix all that. We have dealers, dedicated support, and wonderful software narrowed down to the features every embroiderer needs. More than that, we made it affordable! If you have the desire to get more out of embroidery than simply using your machine, Embrilliance Essentials is how you do it.
