Brother PE Design 11 Embroidery Design Software


Advanced Embroidery Software

Choose PE-Design 11 to design, convert, edit and scan your own embroidery patterns on your computer. You can even convert images into photo stitch designs or create appliqué patterns.

Once complete, you can send your designs to your embroidery or sewing machines, or even selected models of ScanNCut machines.

PE-Design 11 also lets you specify multiple sewing directions, optimise sewing order, convert stitch patterns to outline patterns and much more. With a host of built in designs, fonts and its new, easy-to-use interface, you’re sure to love working with the PE-Design 11. 

PE DESIGN 11 Embroidery software is perfect for both the casual hobbyist and the home-based business entrepreneur.

Packed with powerful and time-saving features, it comes with 1,000+ built-in designs, and all the tools you need generate your own embroidery. Whether you are designing for hats, pillows, shirts or bags, the fabric selector makes it easy. Import vector files or trace picture images, produce the design of your dreams from simple monograms to glorious PhotoStitch™ designs. Choose your favourite stitch style or design your own using Stitch Design Factory. If you love decorative fills, you’ll love the automatic fill options and echo fills available which are delightful as they are, or can easily be customised for something more unique. Use any of the included 120 regular fonts or 10 built-in fonts - or you can even create your own font. Now you can design and see exactly what you’ll get, set background colours to match your fabric, and select your own thread colour from any of the popular pallets included, or import a new one if you need. Save time changing threads stitching by designing using the Intelligent Colour Sort feature, and if you love colour blending with the gradation tool. 

Whether you are using a small single-needle machine or a large multi-needle, it will save you time and stress when you preselect and design to fit your frame and even split designs with ease. You’ll love being able to ‘press play' and watch as your design is virtually stitched in front of your eyes before you send your designs by WIFI to your embroidery machine or ScanNCut. When you want to recall your favourite design to use again, you’ll love the Design Database which makes design selection and retrieval a breeze. PE Design 11 includes an easy-to-follow quick reference guide to get you started and a range of tutorials to make you an expert.
