Ultimate Design Creation: Full featured VBE with Automated Features and Specialty Stitch Effects
Maestro is the most sophisticated embroidery design package available today.
Advanced VBE functions, automated productivity enhancing features, and specialty
stitch effects provide the most powerful tools for creating breathtaking designs.
Advanced Automated Features
Automated functions speed up design
creation. Auto Breakup slices complex
segments and applies stitch directions
to create perfect satin stitches. Auto
Sequence optimizes the sewing order of a
design based on user-defined criteria. Auto
Start/Stop sets closest-point connections
and automatically places entry and
exit points on all selected segments.
Fur Stitch creates multiple layers of a
jagged satin stitch eff ect that repeats
through the shape, eff ectively mimicking
animal and bird fur. To manually replicate
the natural look of fur, a digitizer typically
needs to spend a lot of time to place
stitches manually, and vary the stitch
length to create the randomness needed
for fur. But with the fur stitch, it is now
done automatically in a single step.
A series of concentric stitches that fill a
shape along its contour, the cascade stitch
is useful in designs where an aesthetic,
hand sewn look is desired. Used with the
programmed run, the cascade stitch creates
a very textured fill.
Auto Color Blend
Blend two stitch colors together
to create beautiful effects. Use
graduated density to vary the
stitch density across the satin
and fill segments, creating a
Turning & Elastic Effects
Create interesting stitch effects
with Turning and Elastic carves.
With Turning, the carved tile pattern
turns along the angle lines you specify.
With Elastic effects, a single pattern is stretched
to fit the width of the column.
Keep stitch count low and watch as randomly placed run stitches stylishly cover large areas of a design.
This stitch mimics the traditional
Blanket stitch that follows the path
of the letter “E” along a line or a
shape. It is widely used in applique
and is also useful in creating embroidery
designs like leaves, fl owers, and feathers.
E-Stitch is also used as an edging around
a satin path or complex fi ll shape.
Convert a collection of digitized characters into
a ready-to-use Pulse embroidery font. Control
kerning and baselines to ensure flawless lettering.
Instantly expands your font collection.
Create beautiful flowing stitches using the
Wave Fill effect. Wave Fill follows the direction
lines of any curves you draw.
Single and dual swirl effects add a nontraditional
look to satin stitches. Perfect for
use with cording designs.
Line Carving & Region Carving
Add depth and realism to designs with these
fancy stitch effects. Line Carving is a great
way to add 3-dimensionality to designs while
reducing stitch counts. Use Region Carving
to create a carved tile region that differs from
the carved fill background.
Variable Stitch Density
Create interesting effects by
defining multiple densities in a
single satin or fill segment.
Store your designs in a special, private Librarian
database created just for you and hosted on our
secure server, so you can access it anytime and
anywhere using a browser. Create designs and save
your designs directly in your Librarian database
(you’ll need an internet connection to do so). Categorize
designs by subject, stitch count, design
specifications etc. for easy design retrieval. You’ll
never waste time looking for a design again!
As a special bonus, we’re including over 250
professionally digitized ‘Sapphire Collection’
designs that are already categorized in your
Librarian Central design database.
Shape artwork tool allows you to Unite, Clip, Exclude etc so artwork can be
manipulated and transformed with ease. It is easy to add the perception of a
shadow to an artwork font (like you see in the image alongside), exclude intersecting areas in artwork,
or add a steil border around the entire shape. Simply convert the segments to artwork, unite them,
and convert to a steil. Shape Artwork gives you freedom to create interesting effects from artwork.
Collections of commonly used combinations
of settings for each punching tool. Select
the appropriate Preset for your tool, and the
settings are automatically applied for you.
Dramatically reduces digitizing time. Over 50
presets included in the software.
