SewWhat-Pro is software for viewing, editing and converting embroidery files arising from various different sewing manufacturers. 

SewWhat-Pro has been tested in the Softpedia labs using several industry-leading security solutions and found to be completely clean of adware/spyware components.


Advanced Features in SewWhat-Pro
  • Cutting toolbar allows graphic separation of patterns at specific stitches
  • Density adjustment dialog to resize a pattern at constant density
  • Graphical or text-based reordering of thread color stops is available
  • Capability to write Smart Media or Compact Flash cards for Singer, Brother, Janome, and new Bernina machines
  • Converts Cross Stitch patterns to embroidery files using a "plugin" from myriaCross (MC). You may download the DEMO, or purchase the MC plugin for SewWhat-Pro. Once the plugin is installed, it becomes seamlessly integrated into the SewWhat-Pro workspace and can be used to preview and convert a variety of different Cross-stitch formats. NOTE: If installing the plugin on a 64-bit computer, be sure to use the 64-bit version of SewWhat-Pro. After updating to Windows 8/8.1, if the plugin stops working, simply uninstall and reinstall to reactive it.
  • Supports a command-line interface for file conversion which has the form:

SewWhat-Pro.exe file1.ext1 file2.ext2 /c

(be sure to put file names or paths with blanks inside quotes)

Integrated Project Management Features of SewWhat-Pro:
  • Includes an editable table for entering project information
  • Easily editable list of thread colors and manufacturer brands
  • Capability to read/write thread color "txt" files for single/multiple projects
  • Thread palettes from over 15 manufacturers are available  
  • Customizable user-defined thread palettes can be easily added

All our software products are native Windows applications. That means they will not run on Mac computers without emulation (virtualization) software and a copy of Windows® installed as well. While we do not endorse emulators, there are several well-known commercial ones such as Bootcamp® for Mac (which ships with newer Mac computers), Parallels® Desktop for Mac, and VMware® Fusion. A free emulator which is highly regarded is Oracle's Virtual Box which does not require rebooting between the Windows and Mac operating systems. Once the emulation software is installed on your Mac, you must load a copy of Windows into the emulator. Most emulators will work with any copy of Windows starting at Windows XP and later. If you don't already own a copy of Windows, then legal copies of XP can be obtained for around $30 (on E-bay® for example).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Q How do I reinstall on a new computer or update the software?
Click the Shop button on S&S Computings website. This will drop-down a menu displaying all of their products. Click on the product you wish to reinstall or update, which will open the selected product webpage. Then click the free Download (Windows) button (not the Add-to-Cart button!) to reinstall the product on the new computer or to update. . Your registration information will be forwarded to you. If you don’t receive it in your Inbox, check your Spam/Junk folder.

Q Is an Internet connection needed to run the software?
 The Demo does not require an internet connection. However, the licensed (retail) version requires internet access to register the software. After the product is used a few times, it can be run without internet access.

Q When will I receive my registration email?
A Registrations are emailed 24-48 hours upon submission of your order from Ken's Sewing Center to S&S Computing. If you do not receive a registration email within a short time (typically a few minutes) after the order confirmation, then (1) check your PayPal email Inbox, which is where the registration is sent; (2) check your SPAM/JUNK folders for an email from containing the registration information; (3) contact us so we can resend the information. It is recommended that you keep an offline copy of this information for future reference. Special to note to Yahoocustomers: mail delivery to Yahoo accounts can take up to several hours. There is nothing we can do about that.

Q I get a message that my registration has been entered incorrectly. What do I do?
Copy and Paste both the Name and the Serial Number from the registration email onto the appropriate lines of the registration form. This will guarantee that all the letters and numbers are entered correctly. Be sure you are registering the correct product. If the registration still does not work, use the Print-Screen key to send us a “screen-capture” of the filled-in registration for evaluation.

Q  After updating or upgrading Windows, I receive a message “unable to read license file”. How can I fix this?
Microsoft Windows Update sometimes removes the license software that all S & S Computing products use to check the product registration status. The resolution for this is to UNINSTALL the product from Control Panel, and then use the appropriate Download button from our Shop online webpage to reinstall the software.

Q What is the refund policy for software purchased from S & S Computing?
A Our software can be downloaded and trialed in Demo mode before purchasing a license, by using the Download buttons on the product pages. We strongly encourage potential customers to first try the Demo before purchasing the software license. For that reason, refunds are generally not given. (For very special situations when a refund is justified, a $10 deactivation fee will be charged.) If you have a problem with the product after trying the DEMO and purchasing it, we will assist you to resolve any issues.

Q How many computers can the software be installed on?
A single license allows you to install on up to 2 computers for your own exclusive use. It violates the license agreement to share the license with someone else. If your existing computer is replaced and if it is possible, uninstall the software from the old computer before reinstalling on a new one. Please notify S & S Computing if you are migrating the software to a new computer.

Q What versions of Windows are supported by S & S products?
A Our products will run on all versions of Windows after XP (VISTA, Win7, Win8, Win8.1, Win10). Most XP machines will run our software, too, provided SP3 is installed.

Q Will this software run on a MAC?
Our products will run on Intel-based MACs using Windows emulation or virtualization software. For more details, go to our MAC installation webpage.

Q How do I get help for using this software?
User manuals are available to download for each product on its webpage. There is built-in help available from within the software, by either clicking on the Help menu or the solid “?” toolbar button. When clicking the “?” button, your cursor changes to a solid question mark and when you move it with the mouse and click a toolbar button or menu item, context-sensitive help will pop-up. There are also video tutorials at the end of most of the product pages. Finally, consider joining one of the support groups to exchange questions and answers with other S & S product users.
