Free Embroidery Software

Software Grátis para Bordados




Have you stored a large amount of embroidery designs in your computer or local network?

Is it difficult to find a particular design among thousands of file names?

Do you have to guess which is the "flower" design you are looking for?

Use Microsoft™ Windows Explorer© as your gallery for embroidery design files. Navigate through the Windows folders and see graphic samples of embroidery designs files without opening those files.

What does Embroidery Explorer Plugin do?

View embroidery design files stored as embroidery machine formatted files as thumbnail images in Microsoft™ Windows Explorer©.

View embroidery design files stored in Sierra native file format as thumbnail images in Microsoft™ Windows Explorer©.

View the mentioned files as thumbnail images in all programs that use the standard file browser (File Explorer© or Windows Explorer©).

Thumbnail View: Change the size of the thumbnail images on the folder contents panel

Preview Panel: Show a graphic sample of the design (3D simulation) with the basic information (file name, file format, stitch count, design size, colors, etc.)

Context Menu: Display technical properties of designs, including color sequence, machine commands, thread length by color, stitch length histogram, slow redraw, etc.


This is a software that turns your Windows Explorer into a catalog viewer for embroidery designs.

After the installation of EMBROIDERY EXPLORER PLUGIN, Windows Explorer will show the embroidery designs files (on different machine formats) as drawings with their characteristics, facilitating the search and helping the organization and classification.

No training is required to use EMBROIDERY EXPLORER PLUGIN. The user will be able to see the samples of the designs in the same way that he/she does with the images stored in the computer or in the network.

EMBROIDERY EXPLORER PLUGIN is useful both for those who do not have any software for the embroidery designs creation or for those that already have some other software of any brand. This is a "must have" product for all workstations that work with embroidery designs.


While other brands sell products with similar characteristics, EMBROIDERY EXPLORER PLUGIN is absolutely free for all users.

Each user can install it on as many computers as he/she wants to use for any application: organization of the design library, presentation to clients, designs for production, etc.

Users will be able to download EMBROIDERY EXPLORER PLUGIN from the websites of authorized dealers in each country.

Why are the colors of some designs incorrectly assigned?
Some embroidery machine design files (stitch files) do not include information about the assigned colors, then Embroidery Explorer Plugin assigns the colors automatically according to an internal palette. As some embroidery file formats have changed from their first definition, it is possible that Embroidery Explorer Plugin doesn’t recognize some commands (including color changes) and the thumbnail or preview of some designs are far than accurate.
