This program lets you create customized cross-stitch patterns, though you may find the busy design daunting. Stitch Shop’s basic interface is crowded with a multitude of buttons and controls to add and edit stitches, motifs, and even your own photos to create a digital cross-stitch chart. The program would benefit from inclusion of tool tips and a Help file, and isn’t as intuitive as others in the category. It does, however, work with nearly any image type and offers a number of ways to import and manipulate them. Though the disabling of the save and print options is understandable in a demo version, the trial doesn’t permit you to preview your patterns either. Stitch Shop downloads as a compressed RAR file and you’ll need to have an app that specifically handles this file type. This complex application isn’t for the novice user, but more advanced users might appreciate its capabilities.
