Fantastic news for Embird on the way..

The latest news from the Embird camp is that there is to be quite a revamp of Embird. The news that a lot of you have been waiting for forever is that the Embird people are now intending Embird to also work on the Mac platform as well as tablets and Android devices! Do I hear collective cheering???

I am one of those folk who have installed Embird on my Mac but I also have Fusions as well in order to run Embird. As you know you have to also then install Windows in Fusions or Bootcamp just so that you can use Embird. To be honest, I’ve always thought that this was an enormous pain in the neck. I am an impatient person and I hated waiting around for both Fusion and then Windows to load on my Mac and then going through the rigmarole of using Embird. So in the end I bought a cheap Windows laptop just for my embroidery and Embird and removed Fusion, Windows and Embird from my Mac. Extreme probably, but I just couldn’t be bothered. I’m now a happy camper!

But even more happy to think that I will soon be able to run Embird on my Mac without having to “jump through hoops”.

Happy with that news????

Yay, I am!

    No, they didn’t Jen. It was on the table ages ago but I don’t know what happened to it. They were supposed to release a version for Mac as well but haven’t. I just wonder if they have “gone off the boil” a bit with Embird.

    Did they ever release a version of Embird that would work on an Android tablet? I can’t see anything on the Embird website about it 🙁

    No, not yet! The Embird guys are still working on it. Good things take time. 🙂

    Anything new on Embird for Mac? I’m in the market for the software, but would very much prefer to have it on my Mac or iPad. Hope they come out with it soon!

    Hi Jeanette
    Sorry for the long delay in answering but I’ve been away and then been so bus I haven’t checked my blog for a while. My apologies. If you’d like to check on the latest tutorials available check out Secrets of Embroidery as they have them all listed on their web-site. Otherwise check one of my tutorials for my email address and email me direct. I always put my email address in my tutorials. I don’t want to put it on here as I will get flooded with spam as that’s how spammers pic up email addresses. 🙂

    Halaleuah! I’ve been tempted to get an inexpensive laptop for my Embird since I recently changed to Apple. For now I’m going to my sister’s house to use her laptop, which is getting old for both of us!

    Wow that’s great news, I did the same as you. After getting sick of waiting for fusion to load and then windows, I bought a windows laptop just to run embird. I can’t wait to see Embird on my Mac.

    Good Evening from Australia

    Dear Carolyn

    I have bought your tutorials in the past but am at a loss to know if I have the latest updates. I have the v6.



  11. Carolyn says:

    I do not know when it will be released, sorry, but I will announce it on this blog when we get a beta version to test. That’s the best that I can do….

  12. Carolyn says:

    No, at this stage we have no idea when the Mac version will be released. We’ve only just heard that they are working on it. When a beta version is released then I will let everyone on my blog know…

    Hi Betty
    No, Sfumato will not change, I would think. They haven’t changed it for years – except for changing the fill patterns – so I cannot imagine that the next version will change much either.
    If you need help just email me. My email address is in the tutorial. I don’t want to post it online because of spammers!

    Hi Carolyn
    I have been trying to contact you. Do you know if this will affect sfumato?
    I have been trying to do a design following your tutorial and I am getting no where lol. It must be me, or did they change it that much from when you put out the tute? thanks Betty
    (could you contact me at the email above privately..thanks)

    Great news indeed!
    Do you know when the Mac version will be released? Also will there be upgrade pricing?

  16. Mary says:

    Great news! What is the expected release date?

    I let my cousin know immediately. She will be very happy.
    merci beaucoup Carolyn.
