At OML we are all about embroidery – and digitizing – and different embroidery software programs that accomplish this. If I could have every embroidery program, I would own all of them!! While I do understand that I am enthusiastic and passionate about digitizing to say the least, I am also always up for new things – especially in embroidery software. I am not paid by any company to work with their software, I do this all on my own and at my own expense, so I have no loyalty or bias to any digitizing software company.
And of course, before I use or review or even do videos on any software, I work very very hard with it on a daily basis to see what that software can do! I do many different designs, bring in pictures, complicated designs and typography too – and put the software to the test! I do spend lots of time working with the software so I know all of its capabilities and faults. I am here to highlight my findings on the best parts of the software – I am testing and working with them out so you don’t have to!
Enter Wilcom Hatch.
Wilcom Hatch is a brand new embroidery software program that has been released just this year. Don’t make the mistake that its super expensive and out of your range: it is not the same as the Wilcom E3 program that has huge functionality at a professional level, and also the professional level price tag, but it has all the power of Wilcom in a simple to use program for every day digitizers and embroidery. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that Hatch is a “simple” embroidery program – Wilcom Hatch is very powerful and can accomplish just about any task! The “simple” in the above sentence means that it is very user friendly and very easy to use.
I can’t really hide my enthusiasm with this software – I think Wilcom has come up with a program that is going to change embroidery digitizing for everyone. Hatch has it all there, right in front of you – and at a price you can afford (personally I would love to have Wilcom E3 as well). That being said, here is one of the most amazing embroidery features that I have seen in a long time.
Wilcom Hatch: Layout Module.
You have to check out the video to really understand what the Layout Module can do. Its super easy and puts the fun back into embroidery. You won’t believe what you can do with this software – this is only one feature! In Layout, you can mirror copy Horizontal, mirror copy vertical, mirror-copy both and of course the amazing and super fun circle layout!! These are just words, you need to see it in action. Its a game changer.
