Q4. What is the difference between Creative DRAWings® and Wings’ modular® Basic?

With Creative DRAWings®, you can create original embroidery designs, use existing artwork (clipart) to create embroidery designs, or edit existing embroidery designs. You do not need to use the Wings’ modular® Basic for these functions, but you can use Wings’ modular® in tandem with the designs you create or edit in Creative DRAWings®.

Wings’ modular® Basic is part of the commercial Wings’ modular® software designed for embroidery professionals and is included free with Creative DRAWings® as a basic editing program. It can be used with or without Creative DRAWings®.

Just a few of the things you can do with this software include:

  • Watch your design stitch out (virtual) 
  • Change the sewing order using a filmstrip viewer 
  • Split designs 
  • Modify stitches (move, add, delete)
