    Cross-stitch software

    Hi there,

    I have been trying to find a way to manage my cross-stitch creations. I usually take existing patterns and muck them into what I want, or create somethign totally new. Drawing this stuff out on graph paper is a PAIN, and I never bother - but this means I never have a record of what I created and if I want to do a repeat I have to start over staring at what I did ... SO I'm in the market for some kind of computer way to make this more feasible. I tried using an exvel table with one cell for each stitch but that was useless. I've downloaded PC Stitch, and it looks OK, but I don't want to fork out the $40 US to have a full version (where you can save) without knowing for sure that it's worth it. Anyone have any experience or ideas about this?

    Hello, I've used PC stitch for a while, mine is version 4. So it's a little outdated. You can buy that brand-spankiest new version from them, or get an older version cheaper at a store. I got mine for $10 at CompUSA or Best Buy in the bargain software area that has no box. It was a few years ago, but hey, how much can it have changed since the last version?

    Try checking to see if they have maybe version 6 at the store first.
    Some Ebay sellers have version 5.1 for $5.50 buy it now price.

    I bought PC Stitch cheaply thru half.com and have been happy with it.

    Thanks for the replies!

    E-bay is a good idea - I'll check that out. I'm a little nervous buying software over e-bay but it's prob fine ...

    The idea of looking for older versions is a great one.

    Here I go to e-bay.ca!!!

    I don't know how the program works, but could you save by doing a cntrl-prnt scrn command and then opening paint and pasting it into paint?

    You probably couldn't alter things much at that point, but it would give some sort of computer record.
