Beyond the Basics: 6D™ Cross Stitcher

Sunflowers_150x150

Beyond the Basics: 6D™ Cross Stitcher by Debra Bohn

Do you remember creating cross stitch projects with a hand needle and thread? Cross stitch is a very old embroidery tradition. But with today’s embroidery machines and the 6D™ Cross Stitcher, we can be more creative by designing our own patterns as well as importing all of those cross stitch books we have tucked away. 6D™ Cross Stitcher is included in 6D™ Premier and can be purchased as a module to 6D™Embroidery Extra. 6D™ Cross Stitcher has 27 cross stitch fonts and 150+ special cross stitches and black work fill patterns.

Please bring your laptop with 6D™ Cross Stitcher loaded in it.
